Tea Tree Healing Stick
Tea Tree Healing Stick
Natural Tea Tree Sticks made with Tea Tree essential oil, coconut oil, Shea oil, jojoba oil, castor oil, beeswax. .15 ounces.
Ingredients & Properties:
- Essential Oil: Tea Tree essential oil can be attributed to its properties as an antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antiviral, balsamic, cicatrisant, expectorant, fungicide, insecticide, stimulant and sudorific substance. The Cicatrisant property of this essential oil makes it heal wounds quickly and protects them from infections. Furthermore, it can help neutralize or diminish the scar marks and after spots left by eruptions, boils, pox, and acne. It can be applied directly on the wounds, boils, sores, cuts or certain eruptions, including insect bites and stings, to protect them from infections. It is as good as any antibiotic, but without any of their adverse side effects
- Coconut oil: Moisturizing. Prevents dry and flaky skin and chapped lips. It also delays the appearance of sagging skin. Helps in treating various skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and other skin infections.
- Shea oil: Best for moisture since it actually absorbs into the skin and has healing properties. It offers UV protection (SPF 6). Often used to remedy dry skin and help protect the skins natural oils.
- Beeswax: Can act as an emollient (moisturizer) as well as protect your skin from the elements, but the most important role it plays is that it is what gives your healing stick its stiffness and body so that it can be easily transported and applied.
