Happy New Year! Welcome the new year with the germ busting essential oil of tea tree ! This is a strong essential oil when it comes to germ fighting potential. Tea tree is an immuno-stimulant which makes it a handy essential oil to have as we get through these winter months. Tea tree helps support a healthy immune system while warding off those germs that cause cold and flu viruses. If you don’t have tea tree essential oil in your home already; hopefully you will after reading about its benefits! I encourage you to try the “Healthy New Year” diffuser blend, it smells very refreshing which makes it great for a new year while combining tea tree , rosemary and lavender to ward of germs!
Tea tree oil has a history that begins in Australia. It was used extensively by Australian aborigines who used it to treat a multitude of symptoms. They used it to help heal cuts, burns, infections, bug bites and bruises. The aborigines also used this oil to treat those with coughs, colds and headaches. As you can see this essential oil is another one that is a must have for the first aid kit.
