Every medicine cabinet deserves a bottle of tea tree essential oil. Tea tree oil is colorless but displays a strong, unmistakable scent that has been described as powerful and musky with spicy undertones due to tea tree’s high terpene content.
Tea tree is one of the most versatile essential oils for the home medicine cabinet. It’s safe for direct-to-skin application for adults but use the help of a carrier oil for children under 12.
Tea Tree Oil’s Versatility
- Antimicrobial: Tea tree attacks any nasty bugs and germs that can do your home harm. This includes antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. This makes tea tree useful for everything from athlete’s foot to the common cold.
- Astringent: Firms, tones, and strengthens skin
- Antiseptic: Prevents infection
Tea tree does much more too so arm your medicine cabinet with this powerful essential oil.
