Hollywood Beauty Tea Tree Oil.
My mom got this for me a few weeks ago and i've been using it about once or twice weekly. I'ts says it helps relieve dry skin and scalp. I found it to be a nice alternative to using regular tea tree oil on your scalp, it still has that tea tree smell but not as strong as regular tea tree oil does. It also has a nice minty tingle feel.(^_^). The bottle says it contains seven natural oils and aloe, it can also be used for dry skin anywhere not just the scalp.
This is what wikipedia says about tea tree oil:
"Tea tree oil, or melaleuca oil, is a pale yellow colour to nearly clear essential oil with a fresh camphoraceous odor. It is taken from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia, which is native to the northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia. Tea tree oil should not be confused with tea oil, the sweet seasoning and cooking oil from pressed seeds of the tea plant Camellia sinensis (beverage tea), or the tea oil plant Camellia oleifera.
Tea tree oil has beneficial medical properties when applied topically, including antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral action, and is also believed to have beneficial cosmetic properties. Tea tree oil is usually used diluted, as reactions are common with pure tea tree oil, but it can also cause irritation for some people even when diluted. Tea tree oil is toxic when taken internally, and so should never be added to food or drinks."
