Не рекомендуется применять неразведенное масло ч.д. на слизистые и открытые раны. Также если у вас индивидуальная непереносимость. В основном на масла аллергии не бывает, это не аллергенные продукты, аллергия бывает на крупномолекулярные белки, собственно аллергическая реакция.
В этом случае может быть только индивидуальная реакция. Если у вас вдруг пошло сильное раздражение или сыпь после применения масла ч.д. then this is not a reaction to the product itself, this is the reaction of the death of fungi, parasites, bacteria, which poison their toxins, thereby causing such a reaction.
Therefore, starting to drink tea tree oil inwards is very good against the background of the detox program, or minimally take a sorbent, a product of alfalfa or fiber (Hi-Fiber). And a large amount of water: 1 cup per 1 drop to remove toxins and not to burden the liver.
And last, friends, Now there are a lot of different companies and pharmacies on the market offering various oils, asserting that this is a 100% product. Yes, the product can be 100% oil, but what quality ...
Do not forget that the quality is influenced by the raw materials from which the oil was prepared, its methods of collecting, cleaning, storing, transporting, etc. Buying cheap oil with the inscription 100% product, you are unlikely to get the properties that this oil should have.
Therefore, do not be surprised if you buy an inexpensive oil, start using it for various diseases and it will not help you. Because with such “100% oil” you need to smear the same pimple for at least half a year to see the result.
Cheap oils or those that left spots during testing can be used in an aroma lamp to flavor the room.
If the oil is cheap, but did not leave a stain, it is natural, but low-grade, there is little sense from such oil. Also suitable for the aroma lamp.
