If dandruff is one of your primary hair concerns, then one secret weapon to keep in your arsenal is the Jason Tea Tree Oil ($15). Officially dubbed melaleuca alternifolia, tea tree oil is a natural antibacterial that can help relieve multiple beauty issues from flakes to acne and even eczema. This particular brand is 100 percent organic and certified by the USDA.
To get the hair benefits, you can add a few drops to your shampoo to give your wash a tingling effect. If you have dry scalp or flaky patches, shake a bit into coconut or olive oil for a quick soothing balm. For skin, mix up a mask with honey, tea tree, and yogurt to remedy a breakout fast. We have to warn you that the scent is powerful (think Vicks VapoRub), but that is what gives tea tree its cold-killing properties. Put a dash in a pot of boiling water and breathe in the steam to knock out congestion. We are hesitant to say that anything is a cure-all, but tea tree oil has a special place in our DIY beauty recipes.
