TUESDAY SPOTLIGHT: TEA TREE EUCALYPTUS
This week’s Tuesday Spotlight is our Tea Tree and Eucalyptus bar. Tea Tree is believed to have a plethora of healing properties as well as a very distinct eye-opening scent. Eucalyptus oil is also believed to have anti-inflammatory and healing properties as well as a distinct scent. If you enjoy the scent of tea tree and eucalyptus, this bar is for you.
The Aborigines have used eucalyptus leaves to heal wounds and prevent infection. Eucalyptus oil is derived from the evergreen tree native to Australia. The most commonly used leaf comes from eucalyptus globulus. It has a strong, spicy, spa like scent and is used most commonly for the ease of cold symptoms. However, eucalyptus oil is also believed to have moisturizing properties and promote ceramide collagen hydration.
Tea Tree oil is also derived from a tree native to Australia. The melaleuca tree is found in New South Wales and Queensland Australia. Like the eucalyptus oil, Aborigines have used tea tree for centuries to heal skin afflictions. Today, tea tree oil is used to fight acne, heal minor scrapes and cuts, and as a natural deodorizer.
We blend natural, therapeutic grade tea tree oil and eucalyptus oil for our tea tree eucalyptus bar. I often recommend this bar for those suffering from sinus issues, the common cold, and allergy season. The scent helps to clear one’s head and open clogged nasal passages. It is a nice bar to have on hand for cold and flu season as well as allergy season. The nourishing goat’s milk and moisturizing oils blended with the natural essential oils creates a moisture rich, invigorating bar.
With cold and flu season right around the corner, now is a good time to stock up on this natural, beneficial bar. With everyone spending more time at home, creating care packages is a thoughtful and useful way to show you care. One idea I have had is to create a care package for friends and family suffering from cold symptoms. This care package will include homemade chicken noodle soup, a tea tree eucalyptus soap, my homemade sore nose salve, and my lip scrub and balm. It’s just an idea to spread a little comfort and kindness.
The tea tree eucalyptus bar is half off on the website this week. I will also offer the discount at the Ligonier Country Market Christmas Market this Saturday.
As always dear reader, stay safe, stay smart, plan and prepare, and keep washing your hands.
