Tea tree oil is a staple at Hilliard Studio Method.
Native to Australia, tea tree oil has been used for thousands of years by aboriginal tribes and now is recognized by the scientific community for its tremendous medicinal uses. Tea tree oil has natural properties that kill all types of bacteria, fungus and viruses. It’s even been shown to kill certain bacteria that are antibiotic resistant.
We use the clean, fresh smelling stuff on everything from our workout equipment, as a housecleaning agent, as well as applying it to our skin for minor cuts and inflammations. It is a natural go-to for all sorts of skins ailments like fever blisters, sunburn, rashes, dandruff and athlete’s foot. Ever left the nail salon and wondered if that bowl you just soaked your feet in for 20 minutes was totally clean? A couple of drops eases the mind and kills whatever might be lurking.
For general use, mix 10-12 drops in a medium-sized spray bottle with warm water. So when you’re cleaning off your mat after a tough HSM workout spray a little on your skin for a quick refresher.
