Written by: Brandi Monasco

Most people are aware of the amazing benefits that come with using essential oils in their  everyday lives. Many essential oils contain properties that help protect you against illnesses as well as remedy cuts or wounds. Tea tree oil is one of those amazing oils.

Tea tree essential oil contains antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic, stimulant and expectorant properties, each of which have convenient and practical uses for your health!


Tea tree oil can be used to help with microbes, viruses, bacteria and fungi illnesses. The antibacterial property of tea tree oil allows it to have the ability to help with even the most dangerous bacterial infections. Tea tree oil is great at protecting wounds and cuts against bacteria that can cause infections.

To use tea tree oil to protect wounds and cuts against infections, dilute the tea tree oil with a carrier oil such as coconut oil. You will want to use a 1:1 ratio and then apply the mixture to the wound or cut.


Viral infections are dangerous and viruses tend to survive even under harsh conditions. With tea tree oil, you can protect yourself from viral infections. It can help with the common cold, measles, pox, influenza and mumps.

To use tea tree oil to help alleviate symptoms of a cold or the flu, add a few drops of the oil to a bowl of hot, steaming water. Cover your head with a towel with your head over the bowl and breathe in the vapors for five to ten minutes.

Hair Care Oil

Tea tree oil can be helpful in dealing with various hair conditions. If you are suffering from hair loss or dandruff, you can use tea tree essential oil to get rid of these conditions.

You can apply diluted tea tree oil to your scalp; this will increase blood flow to the scalp, which in turn facilitates healthy and strong hair. You can also make tea tree oil shampoo simply by mixing a few drops of the oil with aloe vera and coconut milk.


Tea tree oil has a stimulating effect on blood circulation, hormone secretion and the immune system. It boosts body immunity and therefore, protects it from disease causing organisms.

The best way to use tea tree oil as a simulant is through aromatherapy by diffusing the oil in an oil diffuser.

Controls Acne

Many people suffer from bad skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne. Tea tree oil can be used to remove skin tags and control acne, leaving your skin looking smooth and young.

To control acne, you can make a homemade tea tree acne face wash. Mix five drops of tea tree oil with two teaspoons of raw honey. Rub the mixture on your face, leave it on for one minute and then rinse off.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
