Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil comes from the leaves of the tea tree. In the eighteenth century there were sailors who made tea that smelled like nutmeg from the leaves of the tree growing on the swampy southeast Australian coast.

Tea tree oil helps to treat many skin related issues like ring worm, softens corns, soothes cuts and scrapes, eases the itching of insects and chicken pox, warts, acne and dandruff. It’s one of the best things for your skin and you can use it for relaxing in the form of oil bath.

Tea Tree Oil Benefits

Tea tree oil may help relieve skin inflammation. Applying tea tree oil may help reduce the severity of these symptoms (National Library of Medicine Study).

In a study comparing the effects of different treatments for contact dermatitis, tea tree oil was found to reduce symptoms by 40%, which was so much more than standard medications (tea tree oil study).

Also, tea tree oil may provide relief from bug bites by reducing the itching, redness and swelling that occurs (study on histamine). Read more about bug bite relief here.

Tea tree oil contains anti-inflammatory compounds, which may be helpful for easing psoriasis symptoms (psoriasis study).

Tea Tree Bath Salts Benefits

Epsom salts can increase brain and central nervous system activity and allow one to feel relaxed and happy for a few hours which is why it’s so easy to fall asleep after a bath. There are so many benefits to using tea tree oil in your bath salts for your skin. Research has proven tea tree oil as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent as it fights and damages the cell walls of all forms of bacteria.

Another benefit of soaking in the bath is that the warm water and epsom salts can relax your muscles and sitting in the bath for 20 minutes may help relax your gut and soften your stool as you absorb magnesium through your skin which may help produce a bowel movement if you are constipated.

How Do You Use Tea Tree Oil in the Bath?

To use tea tree essential oil in the bath, simply add a few drops of tea tree oil to your Epsom salt measurement and other ingredients and stir it up well before adding it to your bath. Mixing the oils with the salts helps the oils to bind to the salts which allow them to be distributed in the water which prevents the oil from floating on the surface of the bath.
