Blitz bacteria and cleanse the skin with tea tree essential oil.

Tea tree oil is a powerful antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal. It is volatile and best used sparingly a few drops at a time, or blended with a carrier oil. A few drops pack a powerful punch, and the aroma is deep, refreshing, and decongesting. It can be used in both the body and in the home, and has traditionally been used to treat wounds and a range of ailments. Also known as melaleuca as it is derived the Melaleuca tree, a species native to Australia, it is the active ingredient in many organic and natural household products. If you read the ingredients on the back of the packet you will see that it is found in high quality face washes, massage oils, shampoos, and skin creams.
