Why Meghan Markle Cannot Live Without One Essential Oil

Future royal princess Meghan Markle has confirmed her love for one particular essential oil, Tea Tree oil also known as "Melaleuca".

Meghan said: "The one thing that I cannot live without when I’m traveling is a small container of tea tree oil. It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all. It’s inexpensive, it’s small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time.” 

So what is this essential oil that has been made famous by Meghan?

Melaleuca, or Tea Tree, is an essential oil that holds over 92 different compounds and has limitless applications. Hailing from Australia, the Melaleuca plant was a daily necessity for the early natives. The Aborigines would apply the leaves directly to the skin for a cooling effect. Eventually, the knowledge of Melaleuca’s numerous benefits spread worldwide, and Tea Tree oil is now frequently used topically for cleansing and rejuvenating skin, purifying and cleaning surfaces, and more.

One use is skincare. Like the ancient aborigines of Australia, many people still use Tea Tree oil for skin because of its purifying and toning properties. Because of these properties, Melaleuca oil can be used to help soothe skin irritations and for cleansing the skin as part of a daily skincare routine.

Another common use of Tea Tree oil is for haircare. Many people use Tea Tree oil for hair because of its topical cleansing, rejuvenating, and purifying properties. Unlike haircare products containing chemicals, Melaleuca essential oil offers a soft, gentle element to any haircare routine. 

Tea Tree oil helps in opening skin pores, loosening up dirt, which cause whiteheads, blackheads, painful red breakouts and blemishes. 

It is great when travelling. Tea Tree oil helps eliminate insect bites, mosquito bites and any kind of cuts. It also treats skin problems like eczema and psoriasis.

With so many benefits, we are not surprised that Meghan brings it everywhere with her. Who could blame her? We agree with Meghan, and we wish her well in her future life a princess!
