I’ve always heard good things about it in the past, but I never really knew what all the various uses for tea tree oil were.

Tea tree oil is an essential oil that comes from a tree native to Australia.

You’ve probably seen many beauty products containing tea tree oil.

It has a ton of benefits for your skin and hair and it has a refreshing fragrance.

I’ve recently discovered that although tea tree oil is a fab beauty find, there are so many other uses that many aren’t aware of.3

I’d hate for you to miss out on all these uses for tea tree oil so keep reading for all the details!

1. Acne

Top uses for tea tree oil have to include acne.

Tea tree oil is said to be a natural alternative to benzoyl peroxide, so if you’re ever caught without acne treatment, you can apply tea tree oil to the area to fight bacteria and reduce inflammation.

Make sure you test it out on your inner wrist before you apply it anywhere else to make sure you don’t get any irritation.

2. Nails

A little known benefit of tea tree oil is that you can use it to treat brittle, weak fingernails.

Tea tree oil can help prevent and strengthen brittle nails, so after consistent use your nails will be long and strong.

It’s also said to help prevent nail damage and breakage.

You can try diluting some tea tree oil with some water and soaking your nails for 5 minutes.2

3. Fungus

Another one of the uses for tea tree oil on the nails is to use it on toenail fungus.

If you go to a nail salon that doesn’t properly sanitize their tools, it is possible to get fungus on your nails.

If that ever happens, and let’s hope it never does, apply a thin coat of tea tree oil to your nail a few times a day.

You might have to experiment with how often you apply it- some people like to apply it up to 4 times a day and others like doing a foot soak.
