My Favorite Essential Oil

Tea tree oil - pearlsandpencil

Hey loves,

Its been a minute since i gave an update on my skincare journey so far this year. Its been a bumpy road *like pimples*. One of the products i used earlier this year (read here) seems to have vanished from almost any store which led me to do more research and look for an alternative.

The alternative was getting 100% tea tree oil and since i got it my skin has continually thanked me for it. My skin is not near perfect yet but there has been a great change since i added tea tree oil to my skincare routine. Most especially when i wake up with huge pimples on my skin. I usually add 2-3 drops of the oil on a cotton wool and place on the affected areas (mostly at night), by morning it has pretty much cleared up.

Benefits of tea tree oil

  1. It is anti-fungal
  2. It is anti-bacterial
  3. It is anti-septic
  4. It is anti-viral
  5. It is anti-inflammatory
  6. It is kind to the skin

I got a 10ml bottle for 1200 naira in a supermarket ($3.34 or £2.5)

    I have oily skin and ALWAYS use tea-tree products. I think it has a natural drying-ingredient in. I use the Body Shops collection of tea tree products, including the foam face wash, toner and Day cream. I have been using them for probably 6 months and my skin never goes gross and shiny half way through the day any more! My makeup used to ‘slide’ off from getting hot and oily! But now it stays in place. I honestly think tea tree is the answer to every oily persons problems!
    Much love, Caitylis x x

    I have heard wonderful things about tea tree oil, not just here. I guess I am really going to have to try this product out. I have a friend who lives with essential oils and she keeps telling me I need to try the product.
