Commercial products that contain salicylic acid or benzyl peroxide work for some. But increasingly, those searching for a more natural remedy are turning to Australian Tea Tree Oil.
Tea Tree Oil actually has a long history of use in Australia, where Aborigines have been using it medicinally to treat cuts and burns for thousands of years. And, it works wonders on blemishes! Simply place a drop on a cotton swab and apply directly to clean skin. A tiny drop is all you need. (To avoid irritation, don’t use if you’re already using a product like benzoyl peroxide.)
In addition to treating skin eruptions, Tea Tree Oil is also reputed to work wonders on other beauty busters like skin tags, cold sores, dandruff, and psoriasis. For the truly ambitious, you can even use Tea Tree Oil to make your own shampoo, lotion, soap, and body wash. Every 4 oz. bottle comes with a Free 100-Page Guide, which includes all the ways to use tea tree oil to make your life more beautiful…naturally. Retail on Amazon: $19.99
Important Notes: Tea Tree Oil is NOT to be taken orally. This can cause severe reactions from abdominal pain, to drowsiness, to coma. Also, Tea Tree Oil can be drying and may cause redness and irritation if used overzealously, so use sparingly until you can gauge your body’s individual reaction.
