Tea Tree Essential Oil
Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, is well-known for its powerful antiseptic properties and ability to treat wounds, which is why it’s one of the top antibacterial essential oils. To make a homemade tea tree oil cleanser, mix 5-10 drops of tea tree oil with water, vinegar and 5-10 drops of kaffir lime essential oil. Then use it on your counter tops, kitchen appliances, toilet, shower etc. The benefits and use of tea tree oil include:
To treat nail fungus: apply a drop or two of tea tree oil to the afflicted nail and surrounding skin several times a day until the infection is gone.
To treat athlete’s foot: make sure that you clean your feet well and apply diluted tea tree oil to your feet each day until the complaint has resolved itself.
Dandruff: If you have dandruff, try adding tea tree essential oil to your shampoo. It destroys fungus and aids in the healing of your scalp while also reducing itching.
Sunburns: tea tree helps them heal faster. Apply it liberally to affected regions a few times each day until the skin recovers, blending it with aloe vera gel on its own or with complimentary essential oils.
To treat psoriasis and eczema: Add about ten drops of your tea tree oil to a base oil of your choice. Coconut oil is very beneficial for inflammatory skin conditions. Massage the mixture into the affected areas. You should start to notice the improvements in no time at all.
Cold & flu : Add tea tree essential oil to a vaporizer during cold and flu season to relieve congestion.
Asthma: Tea tree essential oil can help patients breathe more easily and freely by treating their symptoms. Inhaling the vapors of a few drops of tea tree oil in a bowl or sink full of very hot water is the best way to relieve your symptoms.

Kambio Nature was created by a French family who fell in love with Cambodia and its nature in 2013. In recent years, the increasing use of chemical ingredients in skin care products and its impact on the environment caught their attention. In 2014, they produced the first distillations of essential oils in Siem Reap and in 2015, Kambio Nature was launched. The name is derived from Kampuchea (the ancient country name for Cambodia) and Bio for natural. All products are organic and made responsibly with the European ECOCERT standard.
