Then, proceed to wet the cloth with warm water and next, drain it.

Recipe – Cure Acne with essential oils

Here I'm going to share a recipe to make at home with natural ingredients, so we can treat our skin with the benefits of tea tree oil and fight acne, pimples and blemishes.
We need the following in order to make a mixture of essential oils to treat acne:
  • Grapeseed Carrier Oil - Grapeseed Oil is used as a base oil for many creams and lotions. It also has some astringent qualities and is good for oily, acne prone skin. You can buy this oil in any aromatherapy shop or even at eBay.
  • Lavender Oil – ideal to cleanse cuts, bruises, and skin irritations; wich we usually do when touching our pimples.
  • Jasmine Therapeutic Oil - Helps itchy, dry and sensitive skin.
  • Finally, Australian Tea Tree Oil – our main ingredient to fight acne, pimples and blemishes with its antibiotic qualities.
We will do this every day, preferably at night. We’ll wash our face and proceed to mix 5 drops of Grapeseed oil (our carrier oil), then 2 drops of Lavender and Jasmine oils and finally 2 drops of Tea tree essential oil.
Then we should apply the mixture to our face, massaging it slowly, then we will wait a litte until most of the oil dries up.
After 15 minutes, we can wash our face and we finally can go to sleep.
Proceed like this every night for 15 days. Then just simply 2 times per week.

Treat dandruff the natural and effective way with tea tree oil

Yes, dandruff can be treated in a very cheap, natural and effective way - how? with Essential Tea Tree Oil. Easy huh? It certainly is.
In a placebo-controlled study of 4 weeks with 126 people with mild to moderate dandruff, the use of shampoo with 5% pure tea tree oil reduced the symptoms of dandruff.
As we covered earlier, Australian Tea tree oil kills fungus and yeast, and is very useful for people who have scalp problems and who would prefer to use a natural and organic product to treat dandruff - but be careful cause undiluted organic tea tree oil can hurt broken skin, irritated or healthy skin.
Dandruff not only appears in the head, it can also be found in areas as the face, eyebrows, ears, armpits and groin -  and is presented as little yellow flakes and greasy plates.
A homemade tea tree oil use of very good efficiency is to mix some drops (1 or 2) of  this essential  oil to our everyday shampoo, then proceed to wash our hair with it leaving it for at least three minutes so it can act on our scalp, if that does not work you can also add it to water for the final rinse.

Dandruff can be, in many cases, resistant and not be completely cured, it reappears in cycles, hence you should take some measures to keep it under control. Like any alternative treatment, it must be intensive and must be decreasing as dandruff disappears, but as a warning we must know that any intensive treatment can not be used for a long time since it can irritate the scalp.
Some other tea tree oil benefits you can find are that it is also good for treating lice and oily hair!
For great results, the essential oil should be 100% pure and high quality. Because of its high concentration, only a small amount will be sufficient in most cases, so it's a very cheap solution for curing and treating dandruff without using chemicals on our hair!

How good is organic tea tree oil for acne? Since an undiluted form of this oil is hazardous, is important to decide what forms of it should be used in order to attain the best result. You can make your own undiluted solution by using 95% of water and  5% of pure tea tree oil mixed properly. If you have sensitive skin, then a mix of this essential oil and aloe vera would respond very well. Get straight tea tree oil and dilute it in pure aloe vera gel. Add only a drop or two to start with per ounce of aloe.
There are  lots of new topical  pure tea tree oil acne products worth buying. Have a look at the skin care aisle of the health food store. Some companies have even introduced a new topical gel that also has other herbal antiseptics, such as witch hazel, lavender and aloe vera.

I highly recommend anyone  to try TTO before running out to a dermatologist: is very cheap so there is nothing really to lose, as long as you use it accordingly. If interested in a non-pharmacological approach to acne, topical Tea tree may be one of the best choices for you, especially if you use it in conjunction with a nice diet.
There are even commercial benzoyl peroxide products fortified with TTO to get the benefits of both ingredients.
