Uggg it is that time of the year: red noses, coughs everywhere, and flu seems to take over humanity. It is October and that means that the weather gets colder. Many people start to feel a little or a lot under the weather, like me. Today I will share some tips that helped me nurture myself and feel better quickly….
You see it everywhere: Tea tree oil. Company’s claim that the benefits are amazing and they put it in many products with promising commercials. But what is tea tree oil? And does it really work? Of course I tested it for you…..
So Tea tree oil, what is it?
Tea tree is seen as an essential oil and originates from plants that are part of the Myrtacea. These plants mostly grow in Australia and New Zealand. It is takes from the leaves of these kind of plants and is also toxic when taken by mouth. However, in low concentraitions it is used in cosmetics and skin care. People claim that Tea tree oil can treat medical -especially skin-conditions like acne, herpes and other skin infections. However, the evidence for this is low. There are more claimed ‘benefits’ of Tea tree oil.
Does it work?
Of course, I am always interested in new natural solutions, so I decided to test tea tree oil. So I used it for the last couple of weeks, when I had spots. I used it about once a week in the evening before I would sleep. A few conclusions:
- It smells very very strong. NOT nice!
- It is not a miraculous way to get a perfect skin BUT I did notice that it helped get rid of my spots quicker than normal. Of course I don’t know if this is REAL evidence, but I felt that it worked a little bit.
- My friends notice that my skin looked good!
Final conclusion: commercial regarding Tea tree oil are over-promising, but I do believe that using it on minor skin condition can actually help and support in healing your skin.
