Apothecary Extracts - Tea Tree Oil - Review

I heard once when Jasmine had gotten head lice a while back that Tea Tree Oil was a good Oil to add to shampoos and such to try to help prevent it. Besides that, I had done very little research on it. I hadn't actually tried it for that reason either. Lice hating anything to me didn't make sense at all, I mean you could be the cleanest person on the earth and still catch it. Yet everyone was raving about Tea Tree Oil still and I wanted to try it. I got really lucky or so my friends say to get this huge 4oz bottle of it from Apothecary Extracts for free to review. This bottle will last a really long time, the company says it may last people up to a year.

When I received the bottle though I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to be reviewing it or testing it. I was really excited that it came with a Free E-Book with 53+ uses for Tea Tree Oil. You really wouldn't believe it even if I told you until you try it for yourself. I was having my monthly breakout when the oils arrived, you know the ones that come with all the hormones. Well, anyway here is what happen. I used just the Tea Tree oil with a cotton ball twice daily on this overly huge and disgusting boil type pimple face demon. I openly admit, I am a picker. I just can not help it and when I'm nervous I pick worse. This usually means I spread the breakouts all over my face. If I use spot treatments I usually break out worse. This Tea Tree oil is just amazing! I used it one day like this and the next morning when I woke up my face demon had drastically shrunk in size. Here is a before and after pic.

When you apply Tea tree oil directly you want to be careful not to get it around your eyes. I also applied it to the tiny face demon above my left eyebrow, which is now completely gone. In the case, that I would have used anything containing Benzol Peroxide and it being a harsh winter here in Michigan I would have been completely dry and flakey anywhere I was trying to get rid of the acne. With this Tea Tree Oil none of that happened, I never dried out at all but the acne still cleared up really quickly and I would say quicker than if I was using any other product on my face to try to clear these up. I used to think I was never going to be one of those all natural users. Now I'm really starting to see why people love it so much. Using this for my acne has proven to work faster for me and has been tons less harsh on my skin.

Aside from Acne and Lice what else is this Tea Tree oil good for?

  • It has antibacterial, anti-fungal and also antiviral effects. This means you can use it to clean your entire house and yourself.
  •  Use it on your hair to prevent lice and to help with dandruff (I'll be trying this soon)
  • Use it on cuts and scrapes. You might want to use Apothecary Extracts E-book for this as it does tend to sting a little when applied to open sores. They give great advice on how to hide the smell of it and how to dilute it so it's not so irritating. That's what so great about Apothecary Extracts, they're not just trying to sell you a product, they give you a ton of free information on how to put this product to use in your everyday life.
  •  Aroma Therapy - This is something I'm starting to get into more inside my home for the kids. Using a diffuser ( which I do not currently have to try this, but looking to get one soon) and inhaling the vapors of Tea Tree oils can help you fight off common and viral colds.

 Not all Tea Tree oils will be the same, you have to be careful and read labels. Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil is 100% pure Australian Tea Tree oil and is also pharmaceutical grade.

  • No Preservatives
  • No artificial colors
  • No fragrances
  • No parabens
  • No mineral oils
  • No chemical solvents
  • No Petroleum
Just 100% Natural Australian Tea Tree Oil bottled and tested in the USA for purity and safety.

I would recommend the Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil to anyone looking to start going a little more natural in your home. A lot of cleaners have tons of harmful chemicals, do we really want to be using them around our children or pets? There are so many uses for this oil that you and I both will be able to clean our whole house with it with ease.

Well, I hope you found my review to be helpful :)
