However, there is one issue that I have encountered repeatedly with essential oils: inconsistent quality, even with the same brands.
For example, I'd buy a bottle of Tea Tree Oil from Brand X, and it works great. Yet, when I buy it again, it doesn't seem to be as effective as the last time! No, it's not because I have gotten used to it.
Apparently, I am not the only one who experiences that. The folks over at Apothecary Extracts know what that feels like, which was the reason why they decided to found their own essential oils company.
Today, I will address the most common skin problems, how to deal with them. I will also share a few recipes that I love, along with more ideas on what you can use with Apothecary Extracts' Tea Tree Oil.
One can deal with the skin problems above by buying a separate cleanser for each. Or, one can simply buy a bottle of Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil and learn how to.
For acne-prone skin: I would add exactly one drop of Tea Tree Oil to my cleanser, mix them up in my palms to mix, and apply to my wet face to cleanse. Try not to get this into your eyes. :o)
Body acne and scalp breakouts: do the same things above! Add the oil to your body wash and shampoo. Voila!
If your breakouts are not due to hormone-related issues, or because of bad reactions to body care products, it could be a fungal/bacterial infection. If this is the case, don't be embarrassed. Just recognize the issue and fix it. :o)
If your body breakout is severe, just add a drop or two of the oil to your body lotion, and apply to the affected area.
What else is the oil good for? Tea Tree Oil is also a natural and effective deodorizer, so I definitely add it to my laundry. I'd turn on the water in my washing machine as usual, add in detergent and Tea Tree Oil. Remember to do this while the water is still running, and before adding your clothes; you want the oil to be dispersed evenly, and not stain your clothes. Also, you would need only a cap full (use the black cap on top of the bottle) of the Tea Tree Oil for a full load of laundry.
I do this to wash my gym clothes, and my boys' diapers. Yes, I use cloth diapers because they are environmentally-friendly, and I love it! Lol. For a full load of about 13 cloth diapers, I find that a cap full of Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil to be more than enough.
You may see a few of the diapers below. :o)
As far as scent goes, the oil smells a lot like eucalyptus. Once you've washed and dried your clothes, they will not smell like Tea Tree Oil.
Tea Tree Oil is also an effective germ-fighter, making it a very safe and natural substance to use to protect yourself and your family!
Cost: a large 4 oz (120 mL) bottle is only $24.99 with free shipping with in the United States! This is a very good deal, because I usually spent $10 for only 0.5 oz of Tea Tree Oil at the local health food stores, and the quality isn't even guaranteed! At this time, Apothecary Extracts is selling to customers within the USA only.
