Tea tree essential oil is a powerful antibacterial agent which helps treat problems that affect the scalp such as dandruff, acne and dry, flaky skin. Unlike scalp products that often contain the harsher benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil cleanses and moisturizes without drying skin out. As an antibacterial you can use tea tree oil to cleanse away any build up on your scalp. This build up can dry out your scalp and cause dandruff.
In fact many of the scalp treatments that use tea tree oil can also be used to treat skin that is dry and irritated from shaving and harsh shaving products. A simple hot oil treatment on the scalp using tea tree oil can cleanse and moisturize without damaging side effects.
Massaging the scalp with a tea tree oil treatment will reduce the inflammation that prevents hair growth by stimulating blood flow. These types of scalp treatments, however, should not contain just tea tree oil as that can cause scalp irritation and dryness. You should mix it with carrier oils, water and other substances as you will see in the recipes that follow.
