I’ve talked about my love for coconut oil many times before, but other than that I have some how avoided essential oils. So much so that I’m confident coconut oil isn’t even an essential oil . . .
Even after my journey and love with coconut oil I still had a major acne problem. Growing up I never had an acne problem. I was lucky, but I also took care of my skin and took pride that it was working. When I turned 26 things changed. I started to have random, severe break outs. I was planning a wedding and had just lost my job so I was stressed to that max. They’d clear up fairly quick with a mask or a spot treatment so that was that. I wasn’t too concerned or I at least had more important things on my mind.
So when I knew the move to Florida was coming . . . and that meant even more stress . . . I started using Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree oil to help with my acne problem. I started with a little spot treatment on new blemishes. Excited by the results I made a delightful mask . . .
To make this mask you will need a small container of regular greek yogurt and about 5 drops of tea tree oil.
Stir all your ingredients together in a bowl until they are nice and smooth. Use your fingers to apply your mask but be sure to steer clear of your eyes. If you get some in your eyes immediately rinse them out with cool water.
Your mask needs about 20 minutes to absorb and during this time it will become dry. Just be patient! Once the 20 minutes has passed rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat your face dry.
Things are getting so much better and very quickly with my acne problem. One thing I’ve learned is that it takes time. If you have an acne problem and it’s visible, you better believe that underneath there things are bad too. So things are going to worse before they get better. That’s a good thing because it means everything is clearing itself out. So don’t worry I’ll show off some before and after pictures soon, but I wanted to tell you about my new found love of tea tree oil before time passed any further. You can get it here !
Have you used tea tree oil? What are your favorite uses?
