Tips for Healthy Skin
1. Tea tree oil is an essential oil that can be used for several purposes, including keeping skin, hair and nails healthy. pop 6 drops in 100ml cool water in your diffuser to help boost moisture.
2. Lower Water Temperatures for Showering. A 5- to 10-minute warm shower (or bath) is less likely to worsen dry skin than a hot one.
3. Fragrance-Free Cleansers. They contain fewer drying ingredients. Opt for 'sensitive skin on the label" or why not try a new night time regime by massaging the body and face with sweet almond oil carrier and a few drops of our tea tree essential oil, to help the skin feel nourished overnight.
4. Stay Hydrated. sip warm water every 20 minutes to help lubricate the skin.
5. Keep up the good work on eating well, your skin will thank you for it!

Tea Tree Essential Oil: Blends well with peppermint, lavender, and geranium
There are some family members and our pets that may need oils to be more diluted.
Babies and young children, pregnant and breast-feeding mothers, the frail and the elderly. Topical applications need to be at much lower dilutions, as low a 1% (1 drop in 10ml of carrier oil) and not all essential oils are recommended. This oil can be used safely.
Please see our faq here and if you unsure always take advise from a clinical aromatherapist for best practise.

Health line tips and tricks
Please note when using on hair:
If you are genetically pre-disposed to losing hair, have hair loss associated with ageing or are going through treatment like chemotherapy which often results in hair loss, tea tree oil is not likely to help with your hair loss. It may help keep your scalp nice and clean though!
We recommend you seek advice from a healthcare professional if you suffer from any underlying conditions which affect hair growth.
