Good Morning Everyone!
We used up all our hand soap because Toddler life is a messy life! So this morning we made more! It is summer so I wanted to avoid citrus oils due to their photo sensitivity. I also wanted something that would keep us calm and but still slightly stimulating.
Tea Tree is an oil we have not talked a lot about yet. It is one of the most popular oils and most recognized by medical professionals as it has a lot of research to back it up! It is well-known for its powerful antiseptic properties and ability to treat wounds, which is why it’s one of the top antibacterial oils. It has also been shown to be effective against other antibiotic resistant infections. Super cool! It does many other things as well. Check the Tea tree or Melaleuca Tag for more posts about this awesome oil! Have fun with your DIY!
