We all know how awesome nature is. It has a magic that is almost impossible to understand it is that mind-boggling. But one of the most amazing products it has ever produced is tea tree oil, not least because of its antiseptic superpowers. It’s amazing, right. How a weird shrub-slash-tree that grows in swampy areas can produce such endlessly beneficial qualities is just staggering. Like we said, nature is awesome.

That is why we urge you to buy a few bottles of glorious tea tree oil and stash one away in your first aid box, one in your car glove compartment and one in your bathroom. Its wonders are just so vast as we are about to explore.

Amazing everyday uses of tea tree oil:

1.  Sore Throat
Tea tree oil is known to aid inflammations and that is usually what causes the pain when you have a sore throat. But that isn’t all this oil does; it also helps prevent you from getting an infection and, if caught earlier enough, could even prevent your sore throat from manifesting at all. What’s more, all you have to do is put one drop in warm water, gargle once a day and spit.

2. Athletes Foot
Oh yeah, tea tree oil is a real superstar when it comes to helping with Athletes Foot and that is because it is incredible at fighting off fungus. As you will find out from this link https://homeremedyshop.com/15-home-remedies-to-get-rid-of-athletes-foot/ tea tree oil basically stops the fungus from being able to replicate and that allows you to get on top of it. To get the best results, all you have to do is add a few drops of tea tree oil to some olive oil and apply it to wherever needs it. The olive oil is important because it helps the tea tree get absorbed better.

3. Hand Sanitizer
Instead of forking out dollar and dollar after dollar on hand sanitizer that you can carry around with you at all time because, well, the world is a disgustingly dirty place, why not make your own, save some money and stay healthy long-term. A little bit of tea tree oil, lavender oil, clove oil, witch hazel and Aloe Vera and there we have it, a much nicer and much better smelling hand sanitizer, and completely natural too.

4. Cuts And Grazes
We mentioned it right at the beginning, the antiseptic superpowers held by tea tree oil. Well, next time your child has a fall and cuts his or herself, apply a small dab of tea tree oil to the wound to really cleanse the area and ward off any infection. Or, alternatively, you could smear a bit on the inside of the bandage and let it work its magic from there.

5. Deodorant
Most sweat doesn’t smell at all. However, the sweat that accumulates in our armpits and genital areas does. It can smell quite bad indeed. It is the bacteria that causes this smell to occur when breaking down the sweat, which is where tea tree oil comes in one again. It fights bacteria, which means there will be less smelly sweat to do battle with. You can find a great recipe at http://modernhippiehw.com/2014/02/20/all-natural-deodorant-recipe/ but essentially you just add a little in with some coconut oil and shea butter and apply after a shower. Gorgeous smelling you all day long.
