Tea tree oil is well renowned for it’s ability to treat oily skin and dandruff. A few drops of tree tea oil can be added to your favorite shampoo for a homemade tea tree oil shampoo. The resulting suds will heal any scalp problems and help treat any dandruff you may have. Blend nine drops of pure tea tree oil into your container of facial moisturizing cream to further treat dry skin, wrinkles, or teenage pimples.
Did you also know that Tea Tree can also be used as a mouthwash? Add two or three drops of tea tree oil to eight ounces of pure water for a mouthwash to treat plaque and bleeding gums. (Don't swallow it, though.)
Do your legs feature bumps or red spots after shaving or waxing? You can make a spray by adding a few drops of tea tree oil to a pint of purified water. Shake to combine, put in a spray bottle, and spray onto legs after shaving or waxing.
It could possibly be sensitising in some individuals so those with allergic or sensitive skins should use with care.
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.
- Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
- Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
- Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
- Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.
Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).
