DIY Moisturizing Face Wash with Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil

Unless you live under a rock I bet you’ve seen that essential oils are a big deal lately.  There are plenty of them on the market and one of the ones that is really versatile is melaleuca oil also known as Tea Tree Oil.   Tea tree oil may be effective in a variety of dermatologic conditions including dandruff, acne, lice, and other skin infections.

I received a bottle of Apothecary Extracts Pharmaceutical Grade 100% Pure Austalian Tea Tree Oil for review and was excited to be able to find many uses for it, especially in my beauty routine.  The FREE 100 PAGE GUIDE that you receive with a purchase of a 4 oz bottle of the oil, is full of ideas.  You can make natural toiletries like shampoo, lotion, soap, and body wash with it.

There is also a recipe for a moisturizing face wash, which I made and tried.

Tea Tree Oil Moisturizing Face Wash

What you need:

1/4 cup of Greek Yogurt
4 drops of Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil
2 drops fresh lemon juice

Mix it: Whisk yogurt, lemon juice and tea tree oil in a small bowl.

Apply it: Rub onto face and neck in a circular motion for about 2 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat face dry. This mixture can be used as a daily face wash for dry skin.

I’ve been using this face wash for a few days now and am really happy with the way it works.  It has really left my skin soft and free of pimples!  I’m excited to try some of the other recipes now too.   

There are a lot of other ways to use Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil in your home too, including in natural household cleaners, detergents, and bathroom disinfectants.

Apothecary Extracts Australian Tea Tree Oil has tests to prove their tea tree oil’s purity and potency.  This is an important fact to know because essential oils aren’t regulated.

  1. I often hear how wonderful this is for skin and making it prettier (and by the way you look so cute, you look so young! If this is your secret I'm going to by LOTS of it!)

  2. I want to live under a rock! HA!

    Tea Tree oil is marvelous! I use it as an additive to shampoo and conditioner during the school year. It helps repel lice and if your kid has lice, it kills the actual louse. I did not believe this until my friend showed me–now I am sold.

    You've reminded me that I need to buy tea tree oil, lavender and rosemary to make my special lice repelling spray!

  3. That's a HUGE bottle! I don't use tea tree oil too much. My skin usually doesn't agree with it since it is super sensitive. However, I know many people love it since it's good for many things. 🙂

  4. Tea Tree oil is awesome, and 4 oz of it should last you a good while! I've been ordering several essential oils lately, and I will have to grab some of this. I've heard it can be great at reducing acne and cold sores, but can also be really great with disinfecting while cleaning surfaces like floors and counter tops.
