3 Benefits of Tea Tree Oil

3 Benefits of Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil is a beloved essential oil in the natural health community. Not only does it delight the senses with an invigorating scent, but it has so many other amazing uses! Here are three of our favorite things about tea tree oil:

Tea Tree Oil is a great natural sanitizer.

Because of its sanitization properties, tea tree oil is used in many natural cleaner recipes. It can even discourage mold from growing. Spritz a little in your shower for a clean, fresh scent and peace of mind.

Tea Tree Oil can help reduce acne.

Tea tree oil can be used as a natural alternative to harsh acne cleansers and is just as effective as benzoyl peroxide. Mix a few drops of the oil with two teaspoons of raw honey to create your own face wash. Just remember to rinse with water!

Tea Tree Oil is great for the scalp.

Do you suffer from dandruff or a dry, itchy scalp? Tea tree oil is a great remedy and won’t cause excessive drying! Mix a few drops with some coconut milk (add a little lavender oil for a sweet scent) and massage it in while taking a shower.

Tea Tree and Eucalyptus Oil are a tough allergen-fighting pair.

Both oils act as a decongestant and can help clear stuffy sinuses. When used together they can reduce inflammation, ease pain, and boost immunity. This shower spray will have you feeling better in minutes.

Speed Up Hair Growth With These Little Known Natural Tips!

Speed Up Hair Growth With These Little Known Natural Tips!

Long hair is a coveted feature by so many women and there’s nothing more frustrating when trying to grow it out, to see it stop growing all together. Talk about practicing patience! But be relieved, there are a few lesser known, natural ways to have the long and beautiful tresses you’ve been wanting so badly, with far less of the wait.

Keep in mind, that genetics, diet, stress level and hormones often play a big role in how much or if your hair grows. So if your hair used was growing well and suddenly it stops, it’s best to look at the possible affecting factors!

But if your genetics aren’t holding you back, you haven’t been stressed, you’ve been eating well and your hormones are happy and balanced, you won’t want to miss out on these helpful and natural tips!

Keep it trimmed
Clean up the ends of your hair 1/4 inch every 6-8 weeks.  It will clean the damaged ends off, allowing the shaft to continue growing out rather than in many damaged directions.

Scalp Massages
Just heat up a hot oil treatment, rub it into your scalp, wait a little while, and you’ll see the difference — your hair will feel thicker, softer, and longer! While you can always use a store-bought treatment, homemade hot oil treatments work just as well. Jojoba oil, coconut oil, olive oils, and most other oils you like will do wonders; just heat it up and apply thoroughly.

Make a Protein Mask
A lot of people believe that this tip concerning how to make your hair grow faster doesn’t work well, but egg whites have been known for their healing properties and their ability to replenish hair and restore its softness and shine! Just crack open a few eggs, strain out the yolks, and make an egg white mask for your hair. Your hair will look ten times healthier instantly and will feel a lot stronger as well — which, ultimately, will allow your hair to grow faster!

Stay Hydrated
Possibly one of the most helpful but neglected tips out there. Water helps the body to process and flush out toxins faster, which makes it a quick and easy natural method that will make your hair grow a lot faster. If you drink about 8 cups of water a day, not only will your body feel better, but your hair will get stronger. The stronger the hair, the faster that it grows. Drinking water also keeps your hair hydrated from the inside out. Hydrated hair is happy hair because, when dry, your hair is much more likely to break.

Heat Protect
Try to stay away from blow dryers and heated tools, as they burn the hair. If you MUST use them, be sure to use a heat protecting spray or creme first, before styling. Keep in mind that the sun damages hair as well. In warm weather, or intense sunlight (even in the snow) keep a hat on to protect your hair from over drying and burning.

Eat Fats and Proteins
The old low fat diets are actually quite counter productive to your health and hair growth. Did you know that what you eat actually makes a difference in how fast your hair grows? If you eat a lot of good fats and protein-rich foods, you will see a huge difference in the quality of your hair, as well as the speed with which it grows. Things like fish, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables, and even different meats all make a difference, so cut down on junk food and focus on heal meals.

Eucalyptus Spray
Get into a sauna, steam room or even your shower, one to two times a week and spray eucalyptus oil shower spray near your head, about arms length away; never onto the head directly. The circulation promoting plant oils will penetrate through your open pores, waking up the follicles. Add to this a gentle scalp massage and you’ll have one happy head! You can also make a topical essential oil blend. I suggest mixing three drops of lavender oil, three drops of rosemary oil, and two drops each of thyme oil and cedarwood oil, along with some jojoba oil. All of this should go right onto your head and, I promise, the mixture will enhance your hair and make it grow that much faster!

3 Easy Ways to Prevent Dry Winter Skin

Dry skin is an uncomfortable byproduct of winter. Going from an overly heated car or indoor space into the crisp cold winter air can be a real shock to your skin, causing tightening, dehydration, and flaking. Nobody wants that. That’s why we want to share some tried and true home remedies to an annoying problem.

Here are 3 Easy Ways to Prevent Dry Winter Skin


An exfoliating scrub made by concocting lemon juice and sugar leaves your skin soft and glowing. Mix a teaspoon of sugar and mix it with the juice of half a lemon, using cotton balls to scrub all over the face. With a circular massage of the skin with this beauty scrub, rough spots on the face become even. Lemons remove patches on the skin and help skin cells regenerate. Put a jar of it on your nightstand and apply it regularly.


Winter is not a friend to dry skin. The heating in homes evaporates the water from the air, making it very dry. Humidifiers are useful at a time like this by adding moisture to the air and thus hydrating your dry skin. Also, add a few sprays of our Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist to the room to enhance the health and wellness benefits. Eucalyptus in the air will not only open up the bronchial passages for better respiratory health but also cleanse your skin.


Moisture forms a protective layer on the skin by keeping it hydrated. Oils that are easily absorbed by the skin, such as coconut, jojoba, and almond, tend to be better at keeping the real moisture in, allowing the skin the best nourishment possible. Coconut oil makes the skin feel soft and removes its previous scaly characteristic by moistening it naturally. Coconut oil has sufficient amounts of fatty acid that make up for any loss of moisture from the skin. Applying oils like these work best when left on for an entire night. Rub on a generous amount before going to sleep and wash it off in the morning; do this every night. Over-the-counter creams work well in the beginning but only leave a surface layer of hydration.

Bonus tip?

Drink more water and reduce your caffeine intake. Caffeine dehydrates skin cells and causes inflammation. Drinking water does the opposite; it calms the skin and nourishes the cells, allowing you to adapt to the changing temperatures easily.

Why One Mom Is OBSESSED With Spraying Eucalyptus Oil In Her Shower

We know our Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist is amazing. But when moms who’ve “tried everything” use and rave about our product, our ears perk up and we get excited. Eucalyptus oil is a powerful and healing tool for better internal health through supporting the body’s respiratory system with the added bonus of energizing the mind and bringing relief to body aches and soreness. Who wouldn’t want that?

Well, Janice, from www.5minutesformom.com – agrees wholeheartedly with us and was excited to spread the word about her “shower revelation.” Here’s what Janice had to say,

“I realize that it seems like 95% of people on this continent are now using essential oils to treat everything from their headaches to their tummy aches to their toe fungus, and I have jumped on that essential oil band wagon as well. I diffuse oils constantly – I have a diffuser by my bed and one in my kitchen. I rub them into my temples and the bottoms of my feet. I drink them, cook with them, clean with them and even bathe with them.

But for some reason, I had never showered with essential oils.

I guess I needed EuroSpa to make a shower mist with 100% pure eucalyptus oil and tell me to spray it into the steam of a hot shower for me to figure it out.

And now I am changed. I will be spraying eucalyptus oil into my showers for the rest of my days. It would just be silly not to…

  1. It wakes me up — Yes, I have always used my morning shower to “wake up,” but adding eucalyptus oil to that morning wake up is like adding a shot of caffeine to my shower experience, but without any caffeine needed!
  2. It clears out my sinuses — I don’t always have a cold. Although, as a mom with grade school kids, it seems like I am usually fighting off something. But even when I don’t have a virus, the eucalyptus oil seems to open up my sinuses, like I am breathing in fresh, misty mountain air.
  3. It is invigorating — I am not a morning person. I have a hard time “getting started.” But some deep breaths of eucalyptus invigorates me from the inside and out. It makes me a little bit more ready for my day.
  4. It feels like a spa — I haven’t had a facial in years, maybe decades. Going to the spa just isn’t in my budget. But with a few squirts of eucalyptus oil into the hot steam of my shower, my morning shower just went up in value. An easy taste of affordable indulgence.

How To Use

It’s so easy to transform your shower into a spa-like eucalyptus steam room…

  1. Begin by spraying one or two spritzes into the palms of your hands.
  2. Rub vigorously together to create heat.
  3. Now cup and bring slowly to your nose and breath in gently.
  4. Before you get in the shower, run hot water and spray into the steam.
  5. While you’re in the shower, you can also spray above the shower head.
  6. You may use between 5 to 10 sprays depending on how rich you want the scent.”

Have Brighter Eyes And Glowing Skin In Just 10 Days With these Easy Tricks!

Have Brighter Eyes And Glowing Skin In Just 10 Days With these Easy Tricks!

We all know that feeling of despair when we see our face in the mirror and

we wonder if we aged overnight. What if I told you your face could look more fresh, younger and brighter in less than two weeks?  It’s not rocket science; it’s health and it’s simple. You can have brighter eyes and glowing skin again… read on!

Have Brighter Eyes And Glowing Skin In Just 10 Days With these Easy Tricks!Gratitude
Let’s start with gratitude.  Similar to the above point about looking at yourself in the mirror with love and appreciation, gratitude is a very complimenting look to a person’s face.  When a person is in gratitude for their life, growth and blessings, despite hardship, there is an unmatchable glow that overtakes their face. Gratitude gets you into a space of loving yourself, your family, life and even potential possibilities, not to mention allows you to be aware of further opportunities before you.  What does that lead to? Joy. Gratitude is the mother of joy.  Nurture gratitude and the joy on your face will be beaming. 

Lemon Water
On a more practical note, try starting your day with a hot cup of lemon water.  Simply make hot water as you would for tea, add the juice of 1/2 a lemon and sweeten with honey or stevia to taste if needed.  This cleanses your digestive system, detoxifies the skin and blood, jump starts your energy and metabolism and neutralizes your body ph to a more alkaline level.  Disease and instability of health thrive in an acidic body. The opposite of that is an alkaline body.  Be healthy. Start your day alkaline. (side note: remember how lemon water cleanses the digestive system? the kidneys are part of that.  You know those bags and dark circles under your eyes?  Those are from overwhelmed kidneys.)

Face Massage

About those overwhelmed kidneys and their corresponding eye bags.  When the kidneys and even liver are over taxed, the lymph in the eyes begin to back up. Basically, the bags are just toxic congestion that needs to move through and out of your system. So if you’re ready to get rid of them, definitely drink the lemon water and THEN do this exercise. 

    Have Brighter Eyes And Glowing Skin In Just 10 Days With these Easy Tricks!

  • close your eye.  place four finders (except the thumb) under the eye and gently apply pressure with the finger tips along the under eye/eye bag area. 
  • take your middle fingers and gently sweep the same area from the inside to the outer corner underneath the eye – be careful not to stretch the skin. 
  • repeat this action 5-10 times when applying moisturizer morning and night. this will aid in keeping the area flushed. 

Eucalyptus Steam 

Eucalyptus Shower Spray is a great addition to any anti-aging routine.  Simply turn up the steam in the shower and spray the eucalyptus onto the walls and into the steam. This will allow the pores in the face to open and activate the anti-microbial cleansing properties of this healing plant. As well, inhaling the the steam will invite the herbal strength to cleanse your bronchial passages, allowing for a full body cleanse that will reflect in your skin.  

Green Juice

Have Brighter Eyes And Glowing Skin In Just 10 Days With these Easy Tricks!There’s a lot of hype about green juice these days and it’s for good reason!  Greens, similar to lemon water, alkalize the water, making the body a fertile ground for beauty to grow.  Greens tone the skin and blood, adding multiple vitamins, minerals and nutrients like silica, collagen, elastin and vitamin k to your insides and outsides.  This results in eyes that are brighter, skin that is tighter and cheeks that have that natural rosy hue. Who doesn’t want that? (don’t be too afraid – there are PLENTY of delicious recipes online for incredibly tasting juice!)

Now that you know how to turn back time in the healthiest ways possible, it’s time to get on your way putting them in to practice.  At Eurospa, your health is our focus. If there’s something we can do for you, please let us know!
