    Organic Tea Tree Oil - Africa

    4 reviews

    A very purifying and balancing essential oil, it is the ideal ally for skin with imperfections. Its virtues are numerous and it is reputed to gently stimulate the body's natural defences. It has the same properties as its Australian counterpart, which is rare and expensive due to the drought this year. Its smell is a little less fine, but its price is milder.

    Our opinion

    A must-have to always have with you, to strengthen your natural defences, to treat a small skin imperfection, to disinfect your hands, to whiten your teeth (1 drop on the toothpaste)... and also perfect for the ecological maintenance of your home!

    The biotope of origin of the Tea Tree is the New South Wales region of Australia. Aboriginal tradition has revealed its virtues as a healing tree. And, the species has become well acclimatised in eastern South Africa.

    • Pregnant women: preferably avoid during the first 3 months of pregnancy.
    • Tea tree oil is well tolerated and there are no known contraindications. It is non-dermocaustic, gentle on the skin and mucous membranes and is one of the only oils that can be applied undiluted; in the case of regular use, it is preferable to dilute it systematically.
    • However, it should be checked that this essential oil is sensitive to oxidation; oxidised, it becomes irritating to the skin. The elbow test is a wise precaution to check this point.
    • Keep out of reach of children.
    • Avoid contact with the eyes.
