Where to buy tea tree oil

Since ancient times, the benefits of herbal essential oils have been obtained by man.  One of the highly used natural ingredients is tea tree oil.  This is extracted from the leaves of the plant called Melaleuca alternifolia. Tea tree oil is known due to its cosmetic and medicinal properties. Since oral consumption shows toxic effects on the body, it is only used for topical applications.  With its unique properties in eliminating head lice and treating dandruff, tea tree oil has been utilized in making hair oils, shampoos, gels and hair sprays.

  • Usually, tea tree oil is available in health food stores. An ounce bottle is approximately $10. It is known as a natural antiseptic. It has a good effect on cancer sores. Some natural deodorants with tea tree oil are available.

Where to buy chia seeds

Lately, we have a few readers who are asking where to find chia seeds.  Actually, there is a trick to shopping for these. I have seen chia seeds being marketed in two ways. One is as food while the other is as a dietary supplement.  The key to finding cheap chia seeds is to avoid them if they are marketed as a dietary supplement.  In the supplement area of natural food stores, you will find tiny bags with an expensive price tag. Given below are some resources in purchasing chia seeds. These resources range from the best option to the worst, based on the price standpoint.

  • These can be found in the bulk bin. The Whole Foods in my locality stocks chia seeds in bulk. You will be able to find them at your local food cooperative as well.
  • You can find them online. Amazon has a wide selection of chia seeds.  A 14 oz. bag will last for a long period of time.
  •  They are available in the supplement section.  In case you cannot find them anywhere else, chia seeds are sold as supplements in vitamin stores such as GNC or in the supplement section of a natural foods store.

Certainly, I am not the only person who loves chia seeds due to their delectable factor and health benefits.
