Top Uses for Organic Tea Tree Hydrosol - A Medicine Cabinet "Must Have"
Rebecca Gaspert > 22 January 2018
Organic Tea Tree Hydrosol is one of the most versatile hydrosols available. The hydrosol is a pure bi-product from the steam distillation of the essential oil, so it has many of the same properties and a plethora of more uses than the pure essential oil.
There are many things that a pure oil cannot be used on, where the hydrosol can. So the benefits of having a hydrosol in your medicine cabinet are huge.
Lets very briefly talk about Tea Tree itself.... Tea tree is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, a great disinfectant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and as a hydrosol is an excellent astringent. I might write another blog later about all the details of Tea Tree, but for now, I want to list all the possible uses for the Tea Tree Hydrosol. Let's see how many I can come up with...
1. Body Brush Disinfectant - spray after every use to keep it bacteria free.
2. Facial Toner Spritz - excellent astringent for acne prone skin in particular, but can be used by all skin types.
3. Aftershave - great for those that suffer from razer burnt skin.
4. Flea retardant for Pets - safe to use on pets as a spray for prevent fleas, or even as an anti-bacterial on paws when they come inside the house, you can also add to their wash or rinse water.
5. Air-freshener - can use as a room spray or in a diffuser.
6. Anti-septic - a great wound spray for any cuts and scratches to prevent infection. (safe for babies and pets too)
7. Dandruff & Itchy Scalp - prevents itchiness from dry scalp and gives great relief while the anti-inflammatory properties soothe and reduce redness.
8. Hair Brush Disinfectant - spray after every use to keep it bacteria free.

10. Hair Lice Deterrent - you can either spritz the hair and scalp directly or use as a hair rinse.
