Tea Tree Essential Oil
Tea Tree Essential Oil
The great Tea Tree Essential Oil rule-of-thumb: "Use this instead of..." Instead of many health care products in your medicine cabinet. Instead of most cleaning supplies in your cupboard.
One of the most versatile and user-friendly essential oils, Tea Tree is steam-distilled from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia tree which grows only in a small area along Australia’s east coast. Beeyoutiful®’s Tea Tree Essential Oil is 100% pure, therapeutic, grade oil and provides generous amounts of terpinen, the active ingredient responsible for the oil’s amazing antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal abilities.
Tea Tree Oil has been used therapeutically by the aboriginal people of Australia for centuries. Even though Tea Tree Oil has a long history of use therapeutically, it is a relatively new addition to aromatherapy. Despite being the new kid on the block, Tea Tree Oil has become a staple for many aromatherapists around the world because of its versatility and wide-reaching benefits.
Blends well with basil, bergamot, citronella, clary sage, clove, eucalyptus, germanium, ginger, juniper, lavender, lemon, marjoram, myrrh, nutmeg, oregano, peppermint, pine, rosemary, rosewood, tangerine, thyme, and ylang ylang. Tea Tree Essential Oil should be diluted with a carrier oil with a maximum concentration of 15% (to achieve, dilute 15 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil in 1 teaspoon of carrier oil).
Topically: Dilute with water or aloe (using the same ratios as with a carrier oil) and use Tea Tree to wash minor skin irritations to bring soothing relief. Can be used as a great refresher after sun or shaving as well. Add 5-10 drops per ounce to your favorite shampoo for an added cleaning boost!
Pre-diluted 10ml rollerball: A convenient way to keep your favorite essential oils at your fingertips is in an easy-to-use rollerball that can go with you anywhere, ready to use when you need it!
Diffuse: Can be diffused in combination with other oils.
Household: Toss those toxic household cleaners! Mix a few drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil with 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Mix in a spray bottle (12 oz.) with warm water, and you’ve got a safe, refreshing disinfectant.
Does your dishwasher have an unpleasant smell? Add a couple of drops of Tea Tree to the soap dispenser along with the soap. And a few drops in your garbage disposer will freshen it up, too—a good idea when company is coming!
Note: Tea Tree Essential Oil is very sensitive to light and air exposure. To prevent oxidization, store in a cool, dark place (possibly even a dark box in the refrigerator). If oil has been exposed to light and air, be aware that increased skin sensitivity may result. Tea Tree should be diluted with a carrier oil with a maximum concentration of 15% (to achieve, dilute 15 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil in 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil).
Pregnancy/Lactation: Although considered acceptable in general for use during pregnancy and lactation, we advise that you speak with your healthcare practitioner prior to use to insure it is appropriate for your specific situation.
