NEW! Organic Aromappeal - USDA
For total body purification, go with the cleansing, invigorating power of Tea Tree Oil. Tea Tree Oil has a strong, freshly pleasant aroma and has been traditionally used for skin care and immune health.
- Traditional Uses: Purifying, uplifting, cleansing.
- History: Can be used by the drop directly on the skin to cleanse and purify. Tea tree oil is an important therapeutic and cosmetic essential oil. Despite its less than beautiful fragrance it should figure prominently in any beginner or advanced aromatherapist's repertoire. An oily scalp can also benefit from an application of tea tree. Because of the mild qualities of tea tree's terpinen content, the oil can soothe cuts, scratches, sunburn and cold sores. Because it's non-irritating, a single drop of the oil can be applied directly to minor injuries once or twice a day.
