Review: Austrailian Tea Tree Oil


 
 I've never tried Austrailian Tea Tree Oil before and having the chance now to do so has been an interesting experience. Not only did I receive this for review but I also received a '53 Uses for Tea Tree' e-book. When I unscrewed the top from the bottle, I can't say that the smell was a pleasing one but it a strong scent. I never knew that Tea Tree Oil had so many uses! From household cleaning and disinfecting, masks, toners, facial washes, body scrubs more, this product is quite handy! It's a 4 oz bottle that's pretty large and it will def last a long time let alone if you use it daily. You don't really need much of it when using it because it's pretty potent. 

  I did try a receipe from their e-book! I wanted to make a body scrub, a simple one so I chose a 'Replenishing Tea Tree Oil Body Scrub'! Here's what it called for:

  • ½ cup raw brown sugar
  • 8 drops Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil
  • 1 tbsp. raw honey 
  • ¼ cup sesame oil

  Mix it all together and store in a jar. Apply it by scooping some up with your finger tips and rub on face, neck and body. Continue to rub the scrub in for a few minutes, then rinse off with warm water.

  This is what my brown sugar scrub looked like and I soooo wanted to enjoy it but the sesame oil ruined it for me! I will try another recipe later for another scrub with the Austrailian Tea Tree Oil with a pleasant scent and I can't wait to try it with so many other uses for it.

Review: Propresser Garlic Press



  I love garlic and love to put in my spaghetti sauce and anything else to give a kick to my meals. This garlic propresser by Orblue is stainless steel and it's a beauty!

  I was so excited to get to work and try this product out! I peeled my cloves and then put them into the presser. I discovered that if you use more than one large clove, it'll be pretty difficult to mince. At least it was for me! Putting two small sized cloves works well. I tried the presser with the peelings kept on and it made it did make it harder that way for me to press through so I could mince the garlic. So, I prefer them peeled first, makes it easier for me to use. 

  
  This is the finished product showing my minced garlic using the Propresser Garlic Press! It's a great product and the garlic smells delish! The propresser is easy to clean also. Just use some soap and water. In the corners, you'll have a little of the garlic in there so, I used a butterknife to get it out. I'm really happy with this product and recommend it everyone who enjoys their garlic!
