Hi, I’m Lauren Roy from Sugar Hollow Farm
in Phillipston, Mass. Tea tree oil should not be used in people with hormonal imbalances.
Tea tree oil is derived from a tree and has antiseptic, antifungal properties. It can
be used straight from the bottle for cleaning wounds and it can also be used in carrier
oils like sweet almond and olive oil to act as an antifungal for feet and yeast infections
and to be used under a bandage. You can take sweet almond oil and olive oil and combine
them. And if you only need a little, if you can
just put one drop
of tea tree, but you can also combine it in a larger bottle for use everyday. And put
about six drops of tea tree oil in your bottle. And then you just use it and rub it into your
feet, and then wash your hands afterwards. You can also combine it with aloe vera and
borage to make a paste for psoriasis. It’s been shown to use – to work really well. The
aloe vera soothes the skin and the borage acts as an anti-inflammatory and the tea tree
acts as an antifungal. So those are some ways that you can take care of different wounds
and psoriasis and other irritations with tea tree oil. This is Lauren Roy for Sugar Hollow
Farm in Phillipston, Mass.
