Three popular Essential Oils and their benefits

Today's threesome is Tea Tree, Cinnamon and Grapefruit oil

I searched online for a supplier and came across a company called FreshSkin on Ebay. They had a comprehensive stock of oils at a very competitive price and offered free delivery, and had a buy four oils get one free offer, so we ordered from them.

Our oils arrived in a couple of days and were very well packaged. They provide a great service, and we will be using them again.

Tea Tree / Melaleuca

We will begin with Tea Tree, which is also known as Melaleuca and is well-known for its powerful antiseptic properties and its ability to treat wounds. The oil is extracted from a plant native to Australia and cannot be found naturally occurring elsewhere. Tea tree oil is a topical remedy and must never be taken orally. It’s considered one of the most effective home remedies for acne, and it's very beneficial for the health of your hair and scalp as it can soothe dry flaking skin and remove dandruff. Another novel way to use tea tree oil is a cleaner in the home.

Tea tree oil has powerful antimicrobial properties and can kill off bad bacteria in your home. Massage therapists have added tea tree oil to carrier oils to aid their clients in natural healing for years. It's also a great cure for athletes' feet.

Cinnamon Oil

Cinnamon oil is also good for the feet. Add a few drops in a foot bath for fungal infections such as athlete’s foot.

Mix a few drops with a carrier oil and apply to the stomach to calm digestive spasms, indigestion and sickness.

Apply diluted cinnamon oil to exposed skin, dab on clothing, and bingo, and you have an insect repellant. You can add it to your home diffuser, which will cheer you up. It is an antidepressant and can reduce headaches, and smelling Cinnamon has been shown to improve brain activity. Massage added to a carrier oil will relax tight muscles and ease painful joints, so great after a tough workout. It's also said to increase libido and increase circulation, and it's said to be an ingredient in many love potions!


Grapefruit is one of the best fruits for weight loss and fat burning because some of the grapefruit’s active ingredients are super beneficial to boost metabolism and reduce your appetite. When mixed with patchouli oil, grapefruit oil will lower cravings and hunger, which makes it a great way to lose weight fast in a healthy way. Keep some mixed with a carrier oil handy and massage some onto your chest and wrists when a craving strikes. Also, grapefruit essential oil is an excellent diuretic and lymphatic stimulant. That's why it’s included in many cellulite creams and blends for dry brushing. Grapefruit can be very effective for shedding excess water weight loss since it helps kick-start a sluggish lymphatic system.

So it's a great choice for your massage oil if you're on a diet, be mindful that grapefruit essential oil can cause skin irritation if exposed to strong sunlight after application. We have just scrapped the surface of the wide uses for these oils. For massage mixing two or three together can make a difference to general health. Experimentation is the key.
