We all know and love Tea Tree, not only for the distinctive scent but the diverse uses and benefits.
Tea tree oil is a light yellow coloured oil that is extracted from the leaves of the melaleuca alternifolia. The plant itself is native to Australia.
Here are some of the many common uses for tea tree oil:
- Bacterial infections
- Cold sores
- Head lice
- Insect bites
- Dry cuticles
This Vegan friendly skin wash is packed full of organic ingredients including the all important Tree Tea Oil. It smells incredible, feels soft on the skin and safe to use on the face, of course avoiding the eyes and mouth! Its main purpose is to help prevent and help fade those blemishes that we all try to hide with our make-up. It is time to stop covering and start giving our skin the TLC it deserves.
Jennifer from Wolcott says “ I give Tisserand Deep Cleansing skin wash 5 stars and 100% recommendation!”

Tea Tree treatments are taking a big step up in soothing and treating itchy scalp that we all experience sometime in our life.
Jason worked on the perfect formulation to make this work miracles. Not only treat an itchy scalp condition, but also tame that unwanted frizz and shield your hair from heat damage.
I have heard some feedback on this product that it makes the scalp itch rather than sooth that annoying itch. This baffled me, so I thought I should investigate and I found the answer! The reason some people have experienced itchiness is because it is not to be used as a regular shampoo and conditioner. A treatment is a treat for the hair so using it twice a week is more than enough to ensure it is used to its full potential.
Elizabeth from London says “Fab! My man has tried a lot of treatments for dandruff and this is the best yet”

10. DR DENNIS GROSS Botanical Cleansing Bar with Tea Tree & Aloe
Tea Tree in solid form? Yes, that’s right Dr Dennis Gross has taken it to the next level and created a tea tree cleansing bar!
I used this after being given a sample size and it was the most amazing soap bar I have ever used, now usually I am not a big fan of a bar but this is so much more than your average soap. I love my make-up and even though I remove it with warm water, I still get a build up of oil. This bar is soft and subtle enough to cleanse and remove any oil or dirt. It is so refreshing and soothing I may have to purchase a full size one now!
Even more amazingly, it contains age-fighting antioxidants, making this the mother of all soaps and that is why it makes it on the top ten Bath & Unwind list for 2017.
