Lookin' for some products to help keep your skin clear but you're not into all those icky creams and messy cover ups? Check out Tea Tree Oil that comes from Australia - a natural solution to regular break-outs!

So you're lookin' for something to help keep your skin clear but you're not into all those icky creams and messy cover ups? There's a natural solution that can end or curb the regular teen break-outs - tea tree oil.

Tea tree oil comes from the tea tree - duh! The tree only grows in Northern New South Wales and Australia. The oil is found in the cells of the leaves. Aboriginals have been using the oil for thousands of years and there are stories of a "magical lagoon" where tea tree leaves have fallen and collected. Nowadays, there isn't a household in Australia that doesn't have tea tree oil. It can help with everything from bad breath to acne to athlete's foot.

Tea Tree Tidbits

1 Tea Tree oil is a great anti-bacterial which kills a broad spectrum of bacteria and a range of stubborn fungi like athlete's foot.
1 It's totally safe for all skin types (dry, sensitive, oily, etc.) and does not mess with normal cell growth and rejuvenation.
1 Tea tree oil is a powerful organic solvent and will actually dissolve the lumps of white blood cells which make pus (in other words - less nasty whiteheads.)

Tea Tree Oil Remedies

1

Blemishes (Acne)

Dab pure tea tree oil on blemishes three times per day, or add three to six drops of pure tea tree oil to warm water and rinse affected area. Apply tea tree antiseptic cream for day-time treatment. Some suggested products - Body Shop has a killer line of tea tree stuff that zaps zits. Try their antiseptic, their facial scrub and their dab-on gel

1

Bad Breath

Add 3 drops to water and use as tea tree mouthwash twice daily. Add 2 to 3 drops to toothpaste when brushing teeth.

1

Muscle Pain

Before and after strenuous sport rub pure Australian tea tree oil into muscles. Add 1 ml to hot bath and soak for relief after sports.

I have ALOT of friends. I used to have one BFF but she ditched me. After that, I couldn't trust people. I started making more friends so someone would be there for me and I would be there for them. Now, I don't have a BFF. Just a ton of close friends, which I like. But I don't know if I made the right choice of doubting everyone or not.

I'm like my mom and my brother is like my dad, but I can't talk back to my mom because it's rude, even if I wanted to. I will always love my family, though. no matter what. My parents used to be strict, but not anymore too much.  When I was in trouble, it was my mom I was afraid of to face but if I was going to get punished, i was afraid of them from my dad.
