Reaping the Benefits of Natural Oils
The use and benefits of tea tree oil can be traced back to early use by Australian Aborigines, whose early use of the plant included using crushed leaves mixed with mud for their antiseptic and antifungal properties. While they had relished the benefits of the plant for thousands of years, it wasn’t until the early 1920’s that their antiseptic properties were researched and introduced into mainstream medicine.
Nowadays, the benefits of tea tree oil are used in a variety of different ways and here at The Healthy Guru we stock a large range of products with tea tree and other natural oils. While its antibacterial properties are well known, tea tree oil is also widely used as a cleaning agent, but its benefits are so much more than that.
Tea tree oil has excellent anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties and is a very versatile product. It can be used as a cleaning product, air purifier, used in skin and hair care and as a natural healing agent.
We stock a wide range of products by Thursday Plantation, which includes a hair care range, body wash, deodorant, antiseptic spray and balm, as well as the original tea tree oil which is often used to help fight infection.
I recommend when using the oil topically to always use a carrier oil and as with any new product, test for a reaction first.
Thursday Plantation Oils are 100% pure and natural, free from SLS, synthetic parabens and fillers or additives. Providing customers with pure and natural products is very important to us.
An added benefit is that Thursday Plantation is an Australian owned company. Other oils in the Thursday Plantation range include Arnica oil which is great for relieving swelling and inflammation, Lavender oil, known for its calming effects and Peppermint oil, which is great for relieving headaches. They are great additions to add to your bath at the end of the day!
For dry and irritated skin, Macadamia oil is a highly hydrating oil and is the key ingredient in Thursday Plantation’s skin care line, which is fantastic for hydrating dry, itchy skin with the range of body and face oil and lip balm all suitable for sensitive skin.
