Tea Tree Oil: Skin Care Essential

For summer vacation, I’m visiting my family in upstate New York. Right now, I’m sitting in a one-room school house in the Adirondacks (don’t worry, it’s been converted into a cabin) and I’m kicking myself because I forgot the most essential skin care product: tea tree oil. I’m literally scratching everywhere because I’ve been attacked by mosquitoes and I can’t help but think I’d be in a much better situation if I had brought my favorite beauty product, tea tree oil.

You might be wondering: why is she so bummed out about forgetting her tea tree oil? I’ll explain. My sister got me into tea tree oil last year when we traveled Thailand together. Tea tree oil serves so many purposes. It is not only anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-septic, making it good for cuts, scratches and blemishes (it reduces the size and the redness!), but also treats mosquito bites and keeps them away!  We always carried it with us in Thailand, and would add it in to all of our facial and body lotions because mosquitoes hate the way it smells. I, on the other, absolutely LOVE the smell of tea tree oil. There is something very refreshing about the scent.

So now, in between hiking in the woods and swimming in the Piseco Lake, I’m on the hunt for tea tree oil. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m going to find it in this neck of the woods, but believe me, I will NEVER travel without my tea tree oil again. Next stop, Manhattan!  Although I’ll be surrounded by cement and skyscrapers I’m sure I’ll still feel the bite of mosquitoes, but at least I’ll be able to find my tea tree oil!

    I love being outdoors with my kids with no complete agenda. We know approximately where we are going, but the plan always seems to change once we get there or at least close to there – which always makes for the ultimate adventures. We love to ski/board, snowmobile, hike, camp in the craziest places, fish, bike, blade, go 4-wheeling (good times), boating, wakeboarding, waterskiing, swimming, beach exploring and playing in our mountains. Everything is a once-in-a-lifetime experience so we dance in the rain, and laugh at each other until it hurts.

    Tea Tee Oil has so many great uses!! The one I am fond of is the product by Eminence, it is a gel cream,so it does not have a heavy consistency. The product is Eminence Aloe Face Cream Gel with Tea Tree Oil & have recommended it to many friends, especially those with any congestion on their face. It will not clog your pores…and when it is warm outside, just leave in the frig and feels great!!! Also a GREAT product to use after many facial procedures.
    I am not trying in anyway to promote the product, just telling of my experience with it, since it is a unique type of product.
