Better Skin with Tea Tree Oil
If your skin is inflamed, feeling pain from standing all day, rough, or tired, tea tree oil may be effective at soothing and relaxing you. “Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree. The tea tree was named by eighteenth century sailors, who made tea that smelled like nutmeg from the leaves of the tree growing on the swampy southeast Australian coast. Do not confuse the tea tree with the unrelated common tea plant that is used to make black and green teas.”
Tea tree oil is for external use and “should not be swallowed. Poisonings, mainly in children, have caused drowsiness, disorientation, rash, and ataxia—a loss of muscle control in the arms and legs causing a lack of balance and coordination.”
Working, weather, climate, exercise, and environment all affect the condition of skin. Consider weekly soaks with essential oils to sooth your skin and promote relaxation. After 40 hours or more of work a week, hiking, swimming, playing sports, and general life activities, it will take time for tea tree oil products to work. Regular use will produce visible results. Remember to follow package directions and proper medical advice before engaging in any routine.
