Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is extracted from the Melaleuca alternifolia tree native to Australia. Indigenous Australians, known as Aboriginal Australians, used it for traditional remedies. With its antiseptic and cleansing properties, this essential oil can be ideal for oily and acne-prone skin types. It helps calm the skin and reduces redness. When applied topically, it should be diluted with a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba oils.
