Tea tree oil is great for the skin as it is different than most oils that helps cut down sebum and those dead skin cells. Tea Tree is also an antibacterial and can aid in eliminating those pesky white heads and unclogging pores.

  • Warning – Ingestion of tea tree oil is dangerous and always mix essential oils with other carrier oils to dilute them in order to not cause harm to skin.
  • Green Tea extract is an antioxidant that like Tea Tree oil reduces the sebum production. This extract is also wonderful for minimizing breakouts and inflammation.
  • Aloe is the secret tool that helps decrease redness and swelling and soothes the skin as it allows moisture to the skin.
  • Clay masks are for those with sensitive skin. The mask helps in pulling out those toxins that cause build-ups and the clay exfoliates the skin leaving it soft and toned.
