What Is Tea Tree Oil?
Before we get into the beneficial qualities of tea tree oil, let’s learn a little bit about its origin! Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca alternifolia or melaleuca oil, comes from stemming the native Australian plant's leaves. This essential oil is one of the most common and popular oils and is full of anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties.
Is Tea Tree Oil Safe?
Prior to using tea tree oil, it is always important to do a patch test to ensure that you do not have a reaction. Additionally, it is extremely important to not ingest tea tree oil because it is toxic and can lead to harmful complications.
What Are The Benefits?
When it comes to the benefits of tea tree oil, oh is there so many! For starters, tea tree oil is known to soothe and help alleviate irritated skin. Those who have acne will be happy to know that due to the antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of tea tree oil, it can calm redness, swelling, and inflammation! Not only that, it can help reduce the appearance of acne scars. How great is that?!
Do you find your skin to be a bit itchy? Tea tree oil will be able to get rid of any discomfort from any inflammation and the itchiness you are experiencing! For our oily skin friends, the antiseptic properties of this oil will be able to help you say buh-bye to the unwanted skin condition. We love the sound of that!

Tea tree oil is one of the common essential oils used in aromatherapy! When diffused, it will create a relaxing environment for you to unwind in.
