Scratchy, itchy, dry, inflamed… and tingly?
We get it, the last thing you want is tingly skin to go with the sensations your skin is already experiencing, but there is something good within the tickling sensations of Tea Tree Oil!
It’s a natural side-effect and eventually your skin will build up a tolerance to it as it starts to heal and soothe the affected area.
Tea Tree Oil (also known as melaleuca alternifolia) is one of the natural ingredients within our skin gel that is perfect for helping to soothe and naturally heal the area of skin that it’s applied to.
In case you didn’t know, Tea Tree Oil has been used for hundreds of years in Australia as the number one natural medicinal ingredient to treat a range of ailments due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties. Aboriginal Australians would crush up the tea tree leaves and apply to wounds and Australian Soldiers used it in World War 1 for its antiseptic and antiviral properties as well.
Why is it so good?
Tea Tree Oil is made up of terpene hydrocarbons: monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and their alcohols, which gives it a magical combination to rid the body of any viruses, heal wounds naturally and prevent infection. It also contains an analgesic in the oil, which helps to take the pain away sometimes associated with eczema. It doesn’t just work on the top layer of skin but penetrates below it, so it prevents the severity of scarring, aches and pains.
Tea Tree Oil on it’s own is pretty potent, which is why we’ve diluted it with a range of natural medicinal ingredients used to aid in the healing and soothing of your eczema.
Tea Tree Oil and the other ingredients found in our skin gel are completely natural ingredients so you can be comforted in knowing that you aren’t applying potent and strong chemical ingredients to your skin that could make your eczema worse. It also means that our skin gel is safe for pets and for babies.
