It seems as though everyone is talking about the benefits of essential oils these days. While some are newcomers, there are some oils that have been universally recognized as helpful, predating modern medicine. Tea tree, also known as Melaleuca, is a recognized antiseptic that has been an important element of folk medicine. I first used tea tree oil to help treat my teenage acne. That was long before I understood how useful tea tree oil was so great for household uses. Now that I live in Texas I can’t live without it. Tea tree oil is my favourite treatment for bug bites — oh sweet relief! It seems I am irresistible to insects.
Now that more families include essential oils in their medicine cabinets retail oils are much easier to find.
As we are in the midst of our gift-giving season I’ve been thinking about tea tree oil as a gift. Last year I slipped some oils into my own stocking. Oils are fantastic stocking stuffers! As cold and flu season descends on us, however, I’ve also been thinking about tea tree oil as a gift for other people. Teachers, babysitters, and other mums come to mind immediately. It’s an inexpensive, useful, and unique gift!
If you don’t already know how versatile this wonderful oil can be, a quick internet search reveals a plethora of results. There you’ll find recipes for air fresheners, mold removers, antiseptic sprays, and other household uses. You’ll also see how tea tree oil is helpful in resolving beauty and health concerns, including acne, dandruff, and my favourite: bug bites. I think a simple but wonderful gift would be a bottle of tea tree oil and a card with some of your favourite uses.
Of course, if you don’t fancy gift oil with a recipe card, preferring instead a specific product, Thursday Plantation has a wide range of specific products created with tea tree oil to solve your healthy and beauty concerns.
Happy gift-giving and a healthy new year!
I received this product free of charge.
