Health is more than just about focusing on the foods you eat, how much you exercise, or how much sleep you need. Living in unfavorable environments can have an adverse effect your health. In most cases, the problem caused by these environments stems from the toxic air you breathe in. It makes sense to not only protect your body from the inside by way of your food consumption, but by also attacking the impurities externally in your surroundings.
There are many ways to achieve this. But particularly, we have found essential oils to be quite exceptional in this area. Essential oils are excellent because of two main reasons, they are therapeutic and they purify the air. They can also be used as air fresheners, a bonus feature. We have tried quite a few… the lavender is very good in terms of freshening up your living space. Others such as the eucalyptus, rosemary, sage and tea tree are excellent – therapeutically; they also have a very calming mild smell.
Among all these oils, so far, we have found the tea tree to be the most remarkable; it is nothing short of being miraculous. Understanding the power of the tea tree plant lets you know the types of benefits you can expect to achieve from using the oil.
Tea tree is very good for the respiratory system and you will bear witness to this once you start inhaling the vapor from the essential oil. Your breathing passage will clear up, the stuffy nose and congestion will clear up. Tea tree is a super herb; it is very good for treating blood pressure, candida, cystitis, headaches, pain, pink eye, sinusitis, vaginitis, and yeast infection. It is also very good for skin conditions such as acne, athlete’s foot, burns, dandruff, chicken pox, corns, cuts, insect bites, itchy skin, rashes, ringworm, and warts.
Tea tree oil helps to eliminate body odor. With this in mind, you can get a spray bottle; add some water with few drops of the tea tree oil. Spray it externally wherever you choose to. You can also use this same method as a mosquito repellant by simply spraying the oil mixture all over your body. Another thing that tea tree oil is good for is hypohidrosis (sweaty hands and feet). By rubbing a little of the oil on your hands or feet will reduce the amount of sweat that is secreted in these areas. For women, tea tree oil is very good for treating and preventing tumors and also cleaning the vagina. This can be done by pouring the oil in your hot (warm) bath water whenever you are taking a bath.
Keep in mind that you will also need an essential oil diffuser to circulate the vapor from the oil into the air. Having the essential oil diffuser on while you sleep at night is very good, and it doesn’t matter if you have a sleep disorder or not, it will improve your sleeping and heal the body.
