Essential oils can be used for so many different things, and there are so many to choose from. I know it can get overwhelming to figure out which oils you should try, and what you can do with them. (It’s overwhelming for me, anyway). I decided that a great way to tackle essential oils was to pick one great multi-purpose oil, and start by exploring all its possibilities – in this case, tea tree oil.
Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil, to be exact.
Apothecary Extracts only carries essential oils they’re 100% confident represent the best quality and potency available – no dilution, no unsafe extraction processes that contaminate the oils.
And as for their 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil, you can count on a pure product that smells great and has a wealth of uses for every member of the family. (The scent is strong, but it’s what pure tea tree oil should smell like.) You can use it to naturally fight acne, lice, toenail fungus, yeast infections, skin tags, cold sores….well, you get the idea, and the list goes on and on. It really is an amazingly versatile oil.
To get an even more detailed list of uses and recipes, Apothecary Extracts offers a free e-book with every purchase of their oil, providing over 50 pages of uses for tea tree oil. Just to give you a sneak peek of the recipes you can find in the book, these are my Top 10 Favorites:

Use tea tree oil, shaved beeswax, coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and mint leaves to make your very own healing, protective, and soothing lip balm. (And it tastes good, too!)
