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.

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...

    I don't know. It honestly could be that she likes you, or she is just a really good friend.
