Duchess-to-be Meghan Markle was already well-known for her acting role as Rachel on Suits and her website The Tig, but she burst into the spotlight this year once she began dating British royal Prince Harry. Her glowing skin, soft hair, and happy smile have been on the cover of numerous magazines and the subject of countless Internet articles.

Now that the two are engaged, everyone is asking: what are Meghan Markle’s beauty secrets?

It turns out, one of them is tea tree essential oil!

“The one thing that I cannot live without when I’m traveling is a small container of tea tree oil,” Markle told Allure in a 2014 interview: https://www.allure.com/story/meghan-markle-suits-beauty-tips

“It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all. It’s inexpensive, it’s small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time.”

Even before becoming Duchess-to-be, Markle travelled regularly, and never without a bottle of tea tree essential oil.

Markle also named tea tree oil as one of the five things always in her medicine cabinet in an interview with The Chalkboard in 2015: http://thechalkboardmag.com/living-well-with-meghan-markle-of-the-tig#sl=2

Of course, here at Thursday Plantation Canada we are all about the benefits of tea tree oil (and other essential oils, too!). Tea tree oil in particular is a favourite of ours for its many effective uses — it’s your first-aid kit in a bottle.

Tea tree oil is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. It can treat acne, speed up wound healing, stop itching, combat fungal infections, and much more. It also kills 99.9% of household germs.

We have a whole line of tea tree oil products — natural acne care, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and conditioner, chewing sticks, and more. Plus, of course, bottles of pure tea tree oil, like the kind Meghan Markle brings with her when she travels.

Thursday Plantation Canada’s tea tree oil is sourced from and made in Australia. It’s free from SLS, parabens, synthetics, and filters. It’s guaranteed, unaltered, pure oil.  It contains over 40%+ of terpinen-4-ol, the germicidal component found in tea tree oil, exceeding international standards (ISO) by 14% and British Pharmacopoeia standards (BP) by 33%.
