An Indispensable Oil
Herbal House by Katie
There are many essential oils that are deemed safe to ingest, but tea tree oil is not one of these. Tea tree oil should not be ingested as this can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness and slurred speech, along with other potential serious side effects. If ingested it is wise to contact Poison Control.
By using tea tree oil improperly it can over-dry your skin. When this happens, it triggers your body to produce an extra amount of it's natural occurring oils and can lead to acne breakouts, irritation and oily skin.
Remember to always dilute essential oils properly before applying to skin.
