Tea tree essential oil has properties which may help support the skin of your face and eyelids. It is a powerhouse for many reasons, and it's a substance that's worth having in your arsenal. Tea tree essential oil, and especially 4-terpineol (the most active ingredient in tea tree oil) is known to remove demodex mites, which often contribute to ocular irritation via inflamed meibomian glands and bacteria build-up on the eyelids.
When using tea tree oil, we recommend diluting it in a carrier oil before use anywhere on the face or body (using fractionated coconut oil or jojoba oil works well). Even better, you can purchase products, like face wash and soap bars, that are already formulated with tea tree oil in the proportions you need to be safe.
Tea tree oil provides so many amazing benefits for both the eyes and the skin, and we’ll get into a few of our favorite products in this article.
This foaming cleanser is made with gentle liquid soap, for a refreshingly rich lather, and 19 botanicals and plant extracts selected for their potent antioxidant properties. This includes tea tree oil, aloe vera, lavender, lemon, and peppermint essential oils which all combine with powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
As stated previously, tea tree oil is a great antiseptic that helps control oily skin while supporting the skin of the face and eyelids. This soap is great because it’s simple to use, easy to take with you when traveling, and it provides a thorough clean without leaving your skin stripped of oils.
For use anywhere that you have skin, this natural soap is a natural support for your skin. We're biased of course, but we love this soap because it contains just five ingredients; Organic green tea, organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, raw shea butter, and tea tree essential oil.That's it! This 5 ounce bar is super easy to use. Wet your face and hands with lukewarm water. Lather soap in hands, and then massage lather onto skin and onto tightly closed eyelids with a gentle, circular motion. Rinse well and pat dry with a soft towel. Repeat every morning and evening for best results, and follow with Heyedrate Lid and Lash Cleanser.
If you are looking to have your eyelids cleaned with all-natural essential oils every day, then this is a great option. They don’t only clean away dirt, debris, and eye mucus, but they also help support the skin of the eyelids. Tea tree oil is an essential ingredient in this product, and we love these wipes because of it.
To make it even better, this eyelid wipe is easy to use, as it contains ingredients that are safe for the eyes and skin. It is, however, recommended that you take out contact lenses before making use of this option. Mediviz wipes also serve as a makeup remover and daily cleanser. If you are looking to take off any hard-to-clean makeup without extra irritation to your skin, this is the perfect option to go for.
