Tea tree, also known as melaleuca, is well-known for its potent antiseptic properties, anti-fungal and its ability to treat wounds. Tea tree oil, the volatile essential oil is derived primarily from the Australian native plant Melaleuca and has been widely used in Australia for over a 100 years.
One of my favorite recipes to make is my Tea Tree mud mask. I follow the directions on the clay jar; I like mine pretty thick, so I do not add a ton of Apple Cider Vinegar. After I make a thick paste I add 6 drops of Tea Tree Essential oil and I apply a fair amount to my face and neck. I then allow it to completely dry, and I remove it with warm water that has a few drops Lavender Essential Oil in it. This helps rid my skin of blemishes, and it deep cleans my pores too. My 16-year-old son has also seen a real improvement in his skin too using this clay mask.
Here are the ingredients:
