Nature’s Natural Antiseptic

Dr. Bronner’s Shares Its Top 5 Uses for Tea Tree Soap

August 11, 2017

There are many uses and healing powers of Tea Tree. Valued for its antiseptic abilities, this natural herb is one of Australia’s biggest exports and can be used on the skin and around the home. It is known that during World War II, the Australian Army and Navy even incorporated Tea Tree oil in first aid kits as a germicide. Tea Tree’s anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties make it a fantastic alternative to conventional products and it is often used to soothe acne, dandruff, wounds, and fungal infections on many parts of the body. Around the home, Tea Tree can be a powerful all-purpose cleaner that may also be used to clean and remove mould.

The Tea Tree collection from Dr. Bronner’s is cruelty-free, vegan, organic, and just like Tea Tree, each product has multi-functioning uses which can be used on the body and in the home. Dr. Bronner’s shares its top 5 uses for Tea Tree:

1. Clean Piercings

Dr. Bronner’s 18-In-1 Hemp Tea Tree Pure-Castile Liquid Soap is often recommended by tattoo and piercing salons as a gentle cleanser for aftercare. A personal favourite of Zoe Kravitz, who recently stated that she uses the Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap to clean her piercings, the woodsy and therapeutic liquid is a popular choice. Dr. Bronner’s Tea Tree Pure-Castile Liquid Soap contains pure Tea Tree essential oil which works as an antiseptic, while the organic coconut and jojoba oils gently soothe the skin.

Note to Editors

Dr. Bronner’s is a family business committed to honouring the vision of founder Emanuel Bronner by making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, and by dedicating profits to help make a better world. The company’s commitment to progressive business practices is part of the company’s mission to put into practice the principles that inform the philosophy printed on the company’s iconic soap labels written by founder Emanuel Bronner. Bronner was a third generation soap maker who spent his life renouncing hate and war on a personal mission to unite mankind. His strong views and lectures landed him in a mental asylum in Chicago, but eight months later in 1948, Bronner escaped and continued with his message in California. During this time, he also began making peppermint liquid soap under the ‘Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps’ brand. He gave the soap away during his talks but soon realised people were taking it without listening to him speak. As a result, he started writing his philosophy on the bottle in tiny script, which is still used on Dr. Bronner’s packaging today. The company is the top-selling natural brand of soap in North America and widely renowned around the world. Based on 2015 sales, a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s soap was sold, on average, every 3 seconds.
