Beat a spot with tea tree oil!

Every of us suffers sometimes from sudden spots and unwanted surprises on our skin. As I teenager, I had quite serious acne and living with it and treating it was quite a challenge, but that’s a part of growing up. I tried different creams, gels but became completely satisfied when discovered tea tree oil. As a big fan of aromatherapy and oils, that was a bit of breakthrough and I just went for it. Tea tree oil, extracted from the leaves, native to Australia is famous for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal anti-septic and healing  properties. I read that native Aborigines used crushed leaves  for cuts, burns and infections. It is very helpful in battling dandruff and perfect for treating all nail fungal infections.

So I treat the spots with the power of nature! As tea tree oil is strong on its own, remember to dilute it with some carrier oil, like jojoba or almond oil. Then apply it to the spot with a cotton bus and repeat throughout the day and before going to bed. It will simply dry out so don’t be tempted to scratch it before!
