Apothecary Extract Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil has been used for a very long time by aboriginal Australians in New South Whales. They used it for many ailments from cuts and scrapes to colds.

As essential oils become more widely known and used in our time, Tea Tree Oils is one of those used for a multitude of things. I received a bottle of Apothecary Extracts Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil to review and love it's cleaning power.

I have been using my Tea Tree Oil to boost cleaning of our rabbit cage, as well as in my cleaning mixtures for areas around our home like the kitchen and bathrooms.

Tea Tree Oil is one of those wonderful oil that has natural antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that make it fabulous for many different uses.

These properties make it great for everything from small cuts, scrapes, burns, eczema, acne and much more. I myself have been using it for just a few weeks for some skin issues I have and I am seeing a marked improvement. We are using it on some small warts and so far, there has been an improvement there as well.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that tea tree oil has been proven to kill staph! This can be a serious infection for many people and can also be very difficult to get rid of. 

Tea Tree Oil has a scent that when too much is used, can be overwhelming, however when used in small amounts (or with a carrier oil), the scent fades very quickly. When using it on my skin, I use it right after showering or just before getting dressed and can not smell it at all within just a few moments. 

If you have sensitive skin or have not previously used tea tree oil, you should use a carrier oil such as coconut oil and test on a small patch of skin before using it on a larger area.


This oil truly has so many uses! When you order Apothecary Extract's Australian Tea Tree Oil, you'll also receive a ebook with information, many, many uses and lots of recipes. You can find this wonderful essential oils on Amazon.
