Review: Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil

Facial oils are all the rage lately. I myself have fallen victim to the trend but nothing can separate me from my Passion Fruit Seed Oil anymore! From Argan to Jojoba, there are so many different kinds on the market these days consumer's are duped into buying low quality goods because they are failing to check whether or not what they are buying is pure oil. These oils that you commonly see now are all diluted to cut costs and in doing so they lose their potency and effectiveness. 

Today I'm bringing you a review on an oil that was kindly sent to me by Apothecary Extracts for my thoughts and consideration and it's a good one! With all these companies pushing benefits of different oils, the original beauty oil, Tea Tree Oil, has been pushed to the side! Before Coconut oil as the golden child for fighting bacteria, there was Tea Tree oil first that was the secret weapon to shrinking pimples and banishing itchy scalp. Here's some quick background information on tea tree oil:

Tea tree oil is a concentrated oil that is made from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia or the tea tree, that is native to the coast of Australia. The oil is distilled through a steam process and is used directly on the skin as a herbal remedy. It is most well known for being a great ingredient to fight acne as well as treating all sorts of fungal problems.

The bottle that you can purchase from Apothecary Extracts is guaranteed 100% pure oil and they have the tests and numbers to back it up! Based on industry standards the oil must be composed of less than 15 cineole and over 30 terpinen-4-ol, this oil is composed of less than 5 cineole and over 35 terpinen-4-ol qualifying it as a 100% pure and unadulterated.

I've been having trouble with flakey scalp lately with the changing seasons and while this bottle came with a free guide packed full of recipes I simply mixed a few drops of the oil with my regular shampoo and after just a week of washing my hair normally there's a noticeable difference in the health of my scalp. I also like to use a Q-tip and apply a dab of tea tree oil straight onto any problem spots on my face, it's great to have a clean and natural way to fight acne.

One massive bottle (4 fl oz of product) is enough to last for a long time and is only $24.99 on Amazon with free shipping! Pick up your own bottle here!
