Tea tree oil is a potent essential oil that has multiple medicinal benefits. It is used in herbal medicine, but can also be used for clear skin and luscious hair.
Tea tree oil is also known as melaleuca oil and is extracted by steaming Australian tea tree leaves. In ancient medicine, tea tree oil was used as a topical for conditions like herpes— however, it’s now being used for its other benefits as well.
Works as a hand sanitizer
With the rise of the novel Coronavirus, hand sanitizers are short in supply. There’s been a worldwide surge in demand for sanitizers and manufacturers haven’t been able to keep up with the demand, according to MSN.
Tea tree oil can act as an alternative hand sanitizer that’s pretty great at killing bacteria. Studies reveal that this oil can kill bacteria and viruses that cause the flu, E.coli, and pneumonia.
As a natural deodorant
Deodorants and antiperspirants sold in department stores and drugstores are effective at keeping body odor at bay but they are bad for your skin. Deodorants contain toxic chemicals that have been known to cause cancer. Antiperspirants are known to clog pores that prevent sweat glands from working efficiently.
Tea tree oil works well as a natural deodorant. Since odor is caused by bacterial, tea tree oil’s antibacterial properties can eliminate bacteria that causes odor.
