Learn how to use the benefits of tea tree oil for better looking skin in this complete guide.

Does your skin need extra attention? Do you ever feel like you just can’t get your skin under control?

Many of us have been there, and it gets frustrating…quick.

Luckily, there is something that can help.

Enter: Tea tree oil

With over 400 uses, tea tree oil can work wonders on oily, acne prone skin. Here’s everything you need to get the most out of it.

What is Tea Tree Oil?

Tea tree oil is sourced from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant. An Australian native, melaleuca is known to have antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and has been used for generations.

Having a strong, camphor-like scent, this clear, thick oil isn’t exactly famous for its fragrance. However, its potent properties far outweigh what it lacks in aroma.

In fact, this essential oil is one of those “anti-everything bad” substances with nearly endless uses. As such, it’s become a household name in the natural health industry and a must-have ingredient in anyone’s skincare routine.

Tea tree oil for skin

When I was dealing with acne I spent a lot of money to end up apathetic, with dry and irritated skin. This was because many of the products on the market are just too harsh on the skin.

Luckily, tea tree oil can provide everything we need to help get our skin under control once and for all.

Being naturally antiseptic, it combats active infections as well or better than prescription treatments. Not only that, it helps reduce scarring once the outbreak clears.

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, it is also effective at helping to heal the skin and reduce risk of infection.

When combined with other natural ingredients it is great at:

  • Balance out skin and remove excess oil, without leaving it dry.

  • Loosen buildup and free clogged pores with a deep cleaning effect.

  • Shed dead skin cells leaving your skin flake free.

  • Aloe vera: The king of healing ingredients. With a wide range of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, it should be no surprise this is on our list.

  • Salicylic Acid: Originally coming from the bark of the White Willow tree, this ingredient has a special feature: It breaks up skin cells that stick together and clog your pores. That is why it is commonly used to treat acne. Less clogged pores means less black and white heads.

  • Burdock root: It offers the unique ability to increase blood circulation to the skin, leads to more nutrients and faster healing. It also improves skin quality and texture.
