Tea Tree Oil For Blemish-Free Skin

Posted in Essential Oils, Skin Care Tips, Spa Days | Posted on August 14, 2014

Your pillowcase is dirty. In fact, it’s so dirty it could have as much bacteria on it as a toilet seat. Because of the build-up of bacteria found on pillowcases and its potential to cause blemishes, dermatologists recommend you wash your pillowcase every 2-3 days.

Using tea tree oil, Nufabrx has created a pillowcase that helps reduce bacteria so you can get an amazing night’s sleep and wake up with clear, blemish-free skin.

Tea tree oil is not only an awesome way to achieve blemish-free skin, but it’s also effective in treating a number of ailments. Here are four other ways you can use tea tree oil at home to help treat common health and beauty issues. 

  1. Aromatherapy

Prepare a warm washcloth, not too hot, just nice and warm. Use your tea tree oil dropper and apply 1-2 drops onto your warm washcloth and inhale slowly. This form of aromatherapy treats colds, coughs, viruses, and problems caused by bacteria.

  1. Dandruff

Tea tree oil not only reduces blemishes but is also a great way to combat embarrassing dandruff. You want to use five percent tea tree oil to shampoo, so if you are applying to a full shampoo bottle, use roughly 3-4 drops. Do not apply tea tree oil directly to the scalp.

  1. Nail Infections

We all know that having a hang nail can be painful and embarrassing, especially after you spent all morning getting a manicure. Tea tree oil can help fight bacteria and help soothe infection and redness. Use a cotton swab and lightly apply tea tree oil directly onto your skin.

  1. Sinus Infections

Because of tea tree oil’s antiviral and antibacterial properties it has been proven effective in fighting sinus infections.  You will want to boil water in a medium size pot and add a few drops of tea tree oil. After bringing your water to a boil remove from heat and put a towel over your head. Slowly breathe in for 10-15 minutes.
