GPH DiffusionTea tree essential oil - organic
Tea tree essential oil is found in a very large number of body hygiene products (soap, shampoo, bath oil), cosmetics, and therapeutic products, also in food use.
Tea tree is well known for its purifying action. Its essential oil is a powerful broad-spectrum antibacterial and also has antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. It offers not only an ideal protection of the skin (also before radiotherapy sessions) but its deep action allows it to sustainably correct many skin dysfunctions. This oil is also recommended for diffusion during the winter, because it strengthens the resistance of the body (immunostimulant action).
At psycho-emotional level tea tree essential oi is useful to restore the balance, dispelling mental confusion and combating nervous exhaustion. 4 to 5 drops in a dose of neutral shower gel provide a good start to the day.
Tea tree essential oil is also effective for getting away many insects and parasites.
