Treat Your Skin to Tea Tree Oil at Holland & Barrett

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 18, 2012) - Tea tree oil has been a long standing natural ingredient in different shampoos, ointments and other health products.

It originates from Australia, home to over 300 species of tea tree. Aboriginal tribes in Australia have been using this magical product for thousands of years, boiling the tea leaves to use on cuts, wounds and skin problems.

You can forget travelling half-way across the world to sample this super-product, as you can stock up on this must-have oil at Holland & Barrett.

Tea tree oil is particularly good for use on acne prone skin - in fact, a study found that tea tree oil was just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, but without the negative side effects such as redness and peeling. It's definitely worth adding tea tree oil to your first aid kit, as it can also be used on minor wounds to support the healing process. If that wasn't enough for you, the oil has been shown to be of some use for athlete's foot, cuts and grazes, warts, dandruff, and itching from insect bites and eczema.(1)

So, stock up on this old time, natural super oil and see what a difference it makes to your skin!
