4. Reduces inflammation
A phenomenal feature of Tea Tree essential oil is that it can actually help reduce inflammation! This includes it being used as a natural eczema treatment and for helping reduce psoriasis. It may not completely cure these issues but it can certainly help, especially when used in conjunction with natural and organic products.
Many of our customers with eczema have commented that when they switch to using our natural organic soaps that their skin issues die down and some don’t return. This is in part due to the synthetic ingredients and chemicals found in many store bought brands, thus when they switch to ours the natural and organic ingredients help sooth and reduce the inflammation their skin has experience when using the store bought brands.
Tea Tree essential oil can help stimulate blood circulation as well as the immune system. With many of the properties we discussed earlier, Tea Tree essential oil can act as a buffer against some infections. Many people love the smell of Tea Tree essential oil and even if you don’t it blends well with other essential oils as well.
