For years, tea tree oil was an essential oil that was used on the skin, but not discussed. The press is finally raving about it, and here's why!
4 Uses of Tea Tree Oil on your Skin You Wouldn't Expect
1. Use tea tree oil to soothe cuts
Apply tea tree oil in combination with an antiseptic to help soothe sores faster. Avoid eyes and mouth while doing this.
2. Apply tea tree oil to reduce cold sores
You likely don't want to apply a 100% tea tree oil solution, but you can apply a lighter dose to a cold sore area to kill bacteria and prevent cold sores.
3. Use moderate amounts of tea tree oil to soothe acne
Mild or moderate acne can benefit from a light application of tea tree oil. Applying a 5% tea tree oil gel or cream to the effected area can help soothe acne. Tea tree oil can work a little slower than benzoyl peroxide, but seems to be less irritating to facial skin.
4. Use tea tree oil to soothe jock itch
Jock itch could be caused by many things. It could be as simple as irritation from your underwear. Applying tea tree oil, in combination with highly expensive Jojoba oil, or another base oil can help soothe the irritation.
