I have heard of the benefits of tea tree oil for years and was considering different brands when I was given the opportunity to try the Radha brand for free in exchange for my unbiased review. First I was very surprised at how large the bottle was. I was expecting something small like most essential oils but this is a large 4 oz bottle. The Radha Tea Tree Oil comes in a beautiful cobalt blue bottle, with a glass dropper. (Tea tree oil must be stored in a blue or brown glass bottle like so many other essential oils, as the sun can damage it. )
The Radha Tea Tree Oil is 100% pure Melaleuca (tea tree) oil and is distilled from the steaming of the fresh leaves. It comes with a lifetime hassle-free money back guarantee.
Radha Beauty lists some of the uses as:
MOST VERSATILE ESSENTIAL OIL – Helps heal and soothe sunburns. Heals skin infections naturally and helps to prevent lice naturally, just add a few drops to your shampoo. A few drops in your pets’ crates or beds keep the fleas away. Has been found as an effective treatment for warts and soothes insect bites. Treats ringworm and is great for removing ticks.
PREMIUM QUALITY MELALEUCA OIL – Best home remedy for skin tag removal, acne, dandruff, toenail fungus, yeast infections, cold sores, ringworm and more! Great to mix with carrier oils such as Radha’s Fractionated Coconut Oil to relax and soothe sore muscles. Another benefit is that it has a pleasant aroma and opens the sinuses and bronchial tubes for easier breathing, which results in deeper relaxation. Tea tree oil can be used in facial massages, mix with Radha Miracle Retinol Moistorizer and apply to your face to protect against the bacteria that causes acne.
WORKS WONDERS AS A NATURAL ANTISEPTIC- Great to have in your first aid kit.Tea tree oil is an essential oil that is soothing, detoxifying and cleansing for the feet, and it is very effective in soothing sore, tired feet after a long day. Because it has antifungal properties, it also helps to prevent and eliminate athlete’s foot when it is used regularly as part of foot massages. Before massaging your feet with this oil, make sure that your feet are clean and that you use Radha Beauty’s Fractionated Coconut Oil as a carrier oil for the tea tree oil. It only takes a few drops of tea tree oil for it to be effective.
I also found some other great uses for Tea Tree Oil:
As a multi-use household cleanser
A disinfectant for cuts and wounds.
As a great item to pack in your survival/bug out bag
These are just a few of the uses. I also use it as a bug and flea repellent. I take a 16oz spray bottle and fill it with water, then add a few drops of tea tree oil (about 8-10 drops) and then I add a few drops of peppermint oil (about 15 -20 drops) Then I shake it up and spray down the surfaces in my house – floor, pet beds, rugs, doorway, outside welcome mats, and window seals. It works to keep bugs and fleas away and also acts as a repellent for rodents who don’t like peppermint. Please note that Tea Tree Oil can be toxic to your pets. Do NOT spray this directly on your pets.
Tea Tree oil is also toxic if taken internally by humans. It is for external use only. Please check this WebMD article for interactions, reactions, and usage.
I found the tea tree oil to be of good quality and will be purchasing another bottle when this one is empty. I will also be checking out the other oils carried by Radha Beauty.
