What you should know about Tea Tree Oil
and how to combine it with other Essences

No household should be without this ubiquitous essence. Tea Tree Oil is effective because it is highly absorbable by the skin, therefore it gets to the root of the problem quickly and effectively.

Tea Tree Oil comes as a concentrated essence that can, on occasion, be used neat, but, it is far more useful, to keep it handy ready diluted with a carrier oil or water in a dispenser bottle. That is what we seek to facilitate with our Blister Pack. Designed for personal use, it is available in two sizes of concentrated Tea Tree either 15ml or 50ml. The pack includes a handy pump action dispenser that holds 100ml – you just need to fill it with water and add drops of the oil (1ml Tea Tree to 100ml water)to make a solution. (You can also dilute with vegetable oil, but I find that a bit too greasy for most purposes). I have also included a 30ml sample jar of Aloe Vera for you to experiment with.

Tea Tree Oil is of incalculable benefit in protecting your family’s health. It has the ability to penetrate deeply. If anything on your body hurts, use a solution of Tea Tree Oil in diluted form. Any time you need a good cleanser, healing aid, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-viral, antiseptic, burn treatment, scratch treatment, insect repellent, itch relief, pain relief or anti-inflammatory agent Tea Tree Oil always comes to the rescue. It is effective against fungus, bacteria and virus; for dry skin, eczema, minor burns, minor cuts and abrasions, acne, athlete's foot dry scalp, dandruff, scalp rash, lice, gout, warts and aches & pains and much more. Tea Tree Oil is completely natural – no nasty chemicals – non-toxic - and has no known side effects provided you always follow instructions; (do not use neat except where specifically stated) The natural concentrated oil is potent and should be treated with respect. (please read the warnings in red at the foot of this page)

Tea Tree is ideal for preventing the spread of infection – keep it in a foam bottle near the sink and get your family in the habit of washing their hands in it. (recipe on our Solution Mix page and foam bottles in the shop). This is good practice and gets them used to using the antiseptic hand gels in hospitals and surgeries without a second thought. Get them to use the atomiser dispenser to spray their feet and shoes, to prevent odours and spread of infection (such as verrucas and fungal nail.) (No more smelly trainers !). If someone has brought a cold home, spray it around the house. It is good to breath in because it helps clear sinuses and disinfects the otherwise infectious air. ‘Coughs and sneezes spread diseases’ ? Not any more!

You can have a Solution ready to use in every room of your house for all those knocks, scrapes and minor burns we, and especially our kids, manage to subject ourselves to on a regular basis! Antiseptic, cleansing and healing and so handy when ready mixed in the dispenser. No chemicals, effective, ‘green’ and cheap too! One 15ml bottle of Tea Tree will give approx 600 drops – enough to fill your dispenser bottle with solution 15 times over – that’s just Tea Tree and tap water mixed. (That is 40 drops per fill, but you don't have to count them – the 15ml bottle pipette half full = 20 drops or half a ml. It is difficult to fully fill the pipette, but two half fills squeezed into in your dispenser full of water is the quick way to make up the solution. (The larger size has a measuring pipette). Other people do not supply Pipette Bottles. I consider them essential for speed and ease of use.

What this wonderful Tea Tree Oil can do goes far beyond Personal Care and many more suggestions for its use that will amaze you, (see Household Use). Now it doesn't matter where in the house you are when your child comes running (and doubtless screaming!) with a grazed knee – you can use either your personal hygiene solution, or your household solution, or your pot of ‘Super5 Salve’, whichever is ready to hand as a prompt treatment; and if you carry our mini pot (30ml) around in your handbag or pocket, you can use a ‘magic finger’ to make it all better wherever you are. The beauty of the lovely, clear gel salve is that it is non-spill and very quick drying, so it does not stain clothes or make them sticky or greasy. It works, not just for you, but for your entire family – and remember NO CHEMICALS!

How to make a ‘Super5’ Salve for all skin problems.

Try our recommended Super5 Salve. Take a base of 30ml Aloe Vera Gel and add 4 drops each of Calendula Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Oil, and Jojoba Oil (our little pots hold 30ml), and mix well. Apply in moderation gently to the affected area. Can be repeated several times a day to problem skin. A little goes a long way. This salve has the advantage of drying quickly and is not oily like a using a vegetable oil base. It also has the benefits of all the 4 Essential Oils and the Aloe Vera Gel combined. Use daily under foundation on cleansed skin (see 'How I use Tea Tree and other Essences myself as part of my daily routine' below) and on any skin problem including cuts, burns and insect stings, acne, eczema and psoriasis.

So it only remains for me to tell you on this page how I use it for personal purposes, so let us take a look at what this little miracle does for me and can do for you and your family, when just mixed with water into a Personal Hygiene Solution (1ml Tea Tree to 100ml water)..

How I use Tea Tree and other Essences myself as part of my daily routine.

CosmeticPads
Cosmetic pads are available from chemists and supermarkets - they are ideal for use on the face or for applying solution to small scratches, insect bits etc. Use the slightly larger size as shown.
Q-Tips
Q-tips are also widely available from chemists and supermarkets, and are useful for treating small areas.
You can also use the tip of the pipette - just a touch will deposit enough without squeezing.
Plenty.gif
For larger areas for the body and around the house. I can recommend these 'Plenty' wipes or similar. They come on a roll, like paper kitchen towels but are lint-free in use. Their main benefit is that they can be used like a small absorbent rag or face cloth, wrung out when saturated and disposed of when soiled. They are also bio-disposable. They are available to my knowledge in the UK and Netherlands. Doubtless a similar product will be available in other countries.

So, having made up your Personal Hygiene Solution Bottle, a quick press of the dispenser and the solution, ready to apply, is dispensed onto a cosmetic pad or wipe, (see above), easily obtainable from chemists and supermarkets. I wipe it all over, starting with my face and neck and working down my body to my feet. It is really quick and easy to do and cleans and disinfects pores. A god-send if you suffer with greasy skin, blackheads, odd spots or acne and a brilliant preventative if you don't. (If you have to go into hospital, don't forget to take the Solution and wipes with you.) When you read the Tea Tree page you will understand the wide range of hospital bugs this will protect you against). Lets us start with how I deal with my hair and carry on down..

Hair

A normal routine would be to shampoo and rinse your hair a couple of times, and then condition. This I do like anyone else, but I have found that adding a couple of pumps of the Body Hygiene Solution to the shampoo each time, and also to the conditioner makes the shampoo foam really creamy and the conditioner exceptionally effective. I also add two or three drops of Jojoba to each part of the routine. Jojoba is marvelous stuff and if I was asked to put our products in order of preference, I would say "Tea Tree, Aloe vera, Jojoba, Calendular and then Lavender (if you like the smell!). If cost is an issue then start at the top of my list and add the others if you can. I used to suffer with itchiness in the lower part of my scalp across just above my neck, more or less from ear to ear. Following this procedure eliminated that for me after a couple of washes. It will also resolve dandruff and psoriasis problems and, from your children's point of view, keep lice at bay.

Face, Ears, Nose, Neck

Even with make-up removed, Tea Tree will still find and remove more dirt from the facial pores. You can expel the Tea Tree Solution onto a cosmetic pad or wipe and use that. For myself I have found that if you are the slightest bit over generous with the pump, it is easy to get it (painfully!) into your eyes this way, so I use a dry pad and our atomiser spray instead for this. I close my eyes and give a couple of sprays towards my face, wiping it off with the dry pad. Do not forget to wipe inside your nose, ears. I was getting problems with my nose (swellings in the delicate nasal tissue) – I found that if I used a cotton bud to wipe the solution high up around the inside of my nostrils, the problem was rapidly sorted. I have had no further trouble since I started regular wiping my nostrils when doing my face. I follow this procedure by applying some of my Super5 Salve to my face. Super5 Salve, (which you can make up yourself), is composed of Aloe vera Gel, Tea Tree Oil, Jojoba Oil, Calendular Oil and Lavender Oil. It is an amazing combination, which cleans, disinfects, lubricates and penetrates deep leaving my skin soft and supple and best of all dries quickly and is totally non-greasy. You can finish off with your normal routine, moisturiser, make-up etc. You will find you now have a perfect base for it.

Neck, Limbs and Body.

Even if you have showered or had a bath, the following routine is an excellent habit to form. Once I have done my face I carry on down my body using a wipe, taking in my arms and underarms, back, front, and legs. Keep pumping extra Solution onto the wipe to keep it moist. Using a cosmetic pad I now attend to all those nooks and crannies where odours, soreness or infection can take hold, and then throw the pad away. Once again I follow up with my Super5 Salve including any area susceptible to rashes or soreness. The Salve has an anti-septic and anti-inflammatory action, so it will deal with and help prevent Urticaria, (weals), too. Having dressed, I now attend to my feet..

Feet

Once again the wipe comes into play. I thoroughly wipe my feet, taking care to clean between my toes with the damp wipe, adding a bit more Solution from the pump dispenser, to keep it moist. I follow up with the Super5 Salve. This procedure will protect your feet, cure Athletes Foot and keep your shoes fresh (you can also use the atomiser to spray the Solution directly into the shoes). If you have fungal nail, you can use a Qtip or the pipette direct to apply some Tea Tree neat to the affected nail(s). This is about the only situation where I use Tea Tree neat on my body. You should stop immediately if you have an adverse reaction. Remember Tea Tree is an effective fungicide even when well diluted, so just keep following the wipe and Salve routine instead if this should happen. Please note:- Tea Tree will not miraculously replace affected nails. All it will do is kill the infection. You must persevere until the nail grows out. Small toe nails will do so much quicker than a big toe nail. Another brilliant advantage is if one of the family has smelly feet. There they are, shoes off and feet up watching television, and the rest of the family are subjected to that awful smell. Get them spraying, their feet and shoes regularly and you need suffer no more!

Hands and Nails

Finally, I will deal with hands. Using my Super5 Salve on hands and nails daily helps keep my nails in good order and my skin soft and supple. For a more intensive manicure you can use 5 or 6 drops of tea tree and the same of Jojoba in around 10ml of Olive oil(grape seed oil or sunflower oil will do just as well). Stand the pot of oil in a shallow dish of hot water to warm it through, and then soak your finger nails in the solution before gently pushing back the cuticles. One of the best things you can do for you hands and nails is to make up foamer bottles with water, Tea Tree Oil, liquid soap and Jojoba (see Solution Recipes) and keep a bottle handy near every sink in the house. It will clean, feed your skin and disinfect, and it is remarkably easy to use, quick drying and grease free. It will also keep your sinks and towels a lot cleaner than soap. The kids will love it and actually wash their hands properly !

How Others use Tea Tree Oil for Personal Care.

Author’s note:- Most of the following information has been collated from the Internet. As such, it does not necessarily reflect the author’s opinion or commendation.
Our Tea Tree Oil is 100% pure natural oil, but is NOT intended for internal use.
Users are advised to test the product over a small area first, before proceeding. This is simply a wise precaution and used topically, is most unlikely to cause any adverse reaction in the vast majority of users.
Use diluted unless otherwise advised, remembering always to test first. People are different!
I have provided some information on how I personally use Tea Tree above.
Please click the appropriate coloured graphic at the top left of this page for instructions on Household Use. Go there now if you wish

Aches and Pains:-

Sore Shoulder, Tennis Elbow, Pulled Muscles, Strained Ligaments, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Bunions,:- the list is endless and Tea Tree will come to the rescue, cutting inflammation and speed healing. Tea Tree Oil is a deep reaching anti-inflammatory and really helps with the pain by either minimizing or doing away with it entirely. Mix 4 or 5 drops of oil in a small amount of olive oil or Aloe vera and massage the sore joints or, add 2 or 3 drops to a specially formulated pain cream. Your problem should soon be much better.

Asthma:-
(see under Sinuses below)

Acne:-
(see under Problem Skin below)

Athletes Foot:-

is caused by a fungus called Tinea pedis. Tea Tree Oil alters the environment of the skin, making it harder for tinea to do its nasty work. For a soothing, healing treatment, mix Tea Tree Oil with the same amount of olive or grape seed oil and rub the combination into the affected area twice a day. The oil helps to tenderize skin toughened by athlete's foot so the Tea Tree Oil is better absorbed. Alternatively, mix Tea Tree Oil with Aloe Vera Gel, another skin softener. Mix three parts Tea Tree Oil to one part Aloe Vera Gel and rub this ointment into the infected area twice a day. (as I said before it is quick drying and non-greasy, so better that vegetable oil. Give this treatment six to eight weeks to work.

Baby Care:-

Nappy Care:- If you use cloth nappies keep them clean and fresh by adding a few drops of Tea Tree Oil to the wash water. Rinse really well before drying. Often nappy rash is caused by detergent residue. Better to use non-biological wash powder too.
Nappy Rash:- I cannot recommend use of Tea Tree Oil on a baby’s skin. Their skin is so thin and their livers so undeveloped that they can be poisoned if regularly exposed to Tea Tree Oil . Remember that Tea Tree Oil is very easily absorbed. There are some real horror stories on-line resulting from mothers using Tea Tree Oil neat on their babies. Aloe vera Gel is quite effective on its own, so it is probably better to try that rather than Tea Tree – but make haste slowly – test and wait before regular use. Any product can cause allergic reactions.

Bites, Stings, Nettle Rash etc.:-

Flea and other insect bites:- the itch can be reduced very quickly if Tea Tree Oil is diluted 50/50 with water and applied to the sting. Re-apply until the area is clear – you will find that they heal very well and very quickly. (You can do this very quickly (and economically) by wetting a q-tip and putting one drop of Tea Tree Oil on it.)
Rashes:- Apply a solution of Aloe Vera Gel and a few drops of Tea Tree Oil. Repeat until the rash is clear. To save time – make up and use ‘Super5 Salve’.
Stings:- Poison Ivy, Nettles etc – Apply a solution of Aloe Vera Gel and a few drops of Tea Tree Oil. Keep a pot of ‘Super5 Salve on hand for speedy use. Repeat until the rash is clear.
Eczema:- Apply a solution of Aloe Vera Gel and a few drops of Tea Tree Oil or make up and use ‘Super5 Salve’. Repeat until clear.

Blisters and Boils:-

Use the Body Hygiene Wash (1ml TT to 100ml water) for the mouth – just dab on, do not swallow; or (1ml TT to 100ml Aloe Vera) for topical use. Tea Tree Oil is a powerful solvent (which is why it helps to clear trapped bacteria in boils).

Boils:-

Tea Tree is a powerful solvent too, which is why it helps to clear trapped bacteria in boils.

Bruises will respond to Tea Tree Solution alone, but I recommend finishing off with Arnica cream (readily available from most chemists)

Burns:-

Cooking & ironing:- Immediately after receiving the burn, run under cold water.. dab dry and apply a solution of Aloe Vera gel and a few drops of tea tree, (or better still have our ‘Miracle’ Tea Tree Salve handy), to the burn and surrounding tissue for almost instant pain relief. This stops the burn from developing into a large blister and prevents infection. Treatment can be repeated until the skin is completely healed and clear of scarring. I had severely scalded my hand with boiling honey. A friend gave me a tube of ointment containing Tea Tree Oil . I applied the ointment everyday and each day I could see vast improvement. My hand healed without even the hint of a scar.
Oil & Grease Splatters:- as above
Sunburn:- apply a solution of Aloe Vera gel and a few drops of Tea Tree Oil (or Super5 Salve to the burned area for quick relief and healing.
Warning:- If the skin is broken, and looks to be a later stage 2nd, or 3rd degree burn seek professional medical attention.

Cankers:-

The precise cause of canker sores remains unclear, though researchers suspect that a combination of several factors contributes to outbreaks, even in the same person. Unlike cold sores, canker sores are not associated with herpes virus infections, but can be treated as for cold sores below, but, whilst treating the sore, look for possible triggers which include:

  • A minor injury to your mouth from dental work, overzealous brushing, sports mishaps, spicy or acidic foods, or an accidental cheek bite.
  • Toothpastes and mouth rinses containing sodium lauryl sulfate
  • Food sensitivities, particularly to chocolate, coffee, strawberries, eggs, nuts, cheese and highly acidic foods, such as pineapple
  • A diet lacking in vitamin B-12, zinc, folate (folic acid) or iron.
  • An allergic response to certain bacteria in your mouth
  • Helicobacter pylori, the same bacteria that cause peptic ulcers
  • Hormonal shifts during menstruation
  • Emotional stress

Canker sores may also occur because of certain conditions and diseases, such as:
  • Celiac disease, a serious intestinal disorder caused by a sensitivity to gluten, a protein found in most grains
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
  • Behcet's disease, a rare disorder that causes inflammation throughout the body, including the mouth
  • A faulty immune system that attacks healthy cells in your mouth instead of pathogens, such as viruses and bacteria
  • HIV/AIDS, which suppresses the immune system
  • Cold Sores:- Apply ‘Super5’ Salve’ or Tea Tree Oil solution to your cold sore – it will usually health within about 1-2 weeks.
  • Antiviral topical products like pure Tea Tree Oil have been shown to help reduce and treat cold sores caused by herpes simplex infections.

Coughs & Croup:-
(inhale see Sinuses)

Cuts and Abrasions:-

All minor cuts and abrasions may be treated with diluted Tea Tree Oil to cleanse and disinfect and to aid healing.

Cysts:-

Apply a solution made of 10ml of caster oil, 4-7 drops of Tea Tree Oil , and apply heat. That can bring the cyst to a head.

Colds and Flu:-

Prevention:- Not only does Tea Tree Oil purify the air but it disinfects everything, all the while leaving a lovely fresh scent. Use it around the house on surfaces and as an air freshener. If someone in your house or office has a bad cold, use Aloe vera Gel mixed with 4 drops of Tea Tree Oil in your nostrils regularly while you are exposed. People who use Tea Tree Oil habitually report that colds and flu are a thing of the past.
Treatment:- Follow the instructions for Congestion under Sinuses below. to help clear the nose and prevent passing on the infection. As a quick aid put a few drops on a cosmetic pad and sniff – do not put on the skin neat.

Deodorant:-

Do you dislike putting shop-bought deodorants on your skin? You can use your solution under the arms to prevent body odour. I especially like my Super5 Salve recipe for this purpose. Quick drying and no stain.

Ear Infections and Ear Wax:-

Mix 10 drops of Tea Tree Oil with 20ml of olive oil – store in a pipette bottle for easy use, and place 4 or 5 drops of the solution in the affected ear twice daily for at least a week, making more solution if necessary. Using a pipette makes it easy to do this yourself, A cotton wool plug can be used to prevent the oil from running out. Depending on the amount of wax, you may need to get your ears syringed, but this treatment will make the removal of the wax much easier.

Ear Piercings:-

New Piercings:- Keep infection at bay and speed healing with Tea Tree Oil . Use diluted with water 4-7 drops in 10ml water. Dab regularly with the solution on a cosmetic pad.
Infected Piercings:- Any infection responds to Tea Tree Oil . Use diluted with water 4-7 drops in 10ml water. Dab regularly with the solution on a cosmetic pad.

Eyes:-

Dry eyes:- caused by low tear production or by tears evaporating too quickly, which may be exacerbated by hot air, wind, illness, medication side effects, hormonal changes or aging. The eyes can feel gritty, or just stream with tears. follow our Tea Tree daily hygiene recommendations.
Streaming Eyes:- Do your eyes start running as soon as you go into sunshine or wind, or shops or use perfumed cosmetics? Often this is the result of ‘dry eyes’. You may have blocked tear ducts, but try the Tea Tree remedy first.
Infected:- Any infection responds to Tea Tree Oil . Use diluted with water 4-7 drops in 10ml water. Dab eye lids regularly with the solution on a cosmetic pad., (do not rub; do not put directly into the eye). When the infection clears follow our Tea Tree daily hygiene recommendations.
Blepharitis:- is an inflammation of the rims of the eye lids which make them become dry and swollen. Any infection responds to Tea Tree Oil – follow the same directions as for infected eyes above.
Styes:- Treat as for infected eyes above.

Eczema Relief:-

Add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil to Aloe Vera Gel which is a moisturising agent containing Vitamin B, C, folic acid and carotene. Aloe Vera Gel is unscented and uncoloured and is water soluble. Both are highly recommended on their own for Eczema. This way you get a ‘double whammy’. Again I would really go to town with Super5 Salve.

Foot freshener:-

Spray some of your household solution or personal hygiene solution into shoes keep the linings fresh and rub some diluted oil on your feet each day. Much safer than chemical aerosol sprays.

Fungal Nail Infection:-

Moisten a cotton bud with Tea Tree Oil and paint the nail. Repeat morning and night daily. The Tea Tree Oil will kill the fungus, but you must wait patiently for the damaged nail to grow out.

Genitals:-

The genital area is warm and moist – ideal conditions for yeast related infection and the discomfort experienced from this. Prevention is better than cure, so follow our Tea Tree daily hygiene recommendations and the problem will not arise. Ladies can lightly spray a solution of Tea Tree Oil onto sanitary towels, or use our ‘Super5 Salve’. directly on the skin during those awkward days, and avoid odour too.

Gout:-

For pain and discomfort in the joints, Tea Tree Oil can be rubbed directly on the affected areas, but do test a small area for allergic reaction first.

Hair

Washing:- Here is a really good tip. When washing your hair add a splash of your Personal Hygiene Tea Tree Solution to the dollop of shampoo, and to any conditioner you use. You will be amazed at how the Tea Tree reacts with your shampoo to give a super really soft and abundant foam. For ultra luxury and beautiful hair, add 2-3 drops of neat Jojoba oil. If you are in the shower, you can rub it all over your body. If you are using unscented shampoo or shower gel, try adding Lavender Oil to the Tea Tree Solution which you can keep handy in your bathroom and spray on with them. This will soon deal with Dandruff and Psoriasis. You will love it both the results and the smell.
Scalp:- Always wash your hair regularly following the above advice and your scalp will remain clean and encourage hair growth.

Hand Wash:-

– Fed up with telling the kids to wash their hands and having all the muck left on your sink and towels, not to mention doors and walls afterwards? Buy one of our low priced foam dispensers for every sink in the house and fill it according to the area of use. Fill the bottles with small amount of shampoo plus Tea Tree Oil plus water gently mixed together. (For the Kitchen and utility areas use washing up liquid instead of shampoo as that will cut grease better). (see the solution page for quantities). Add Jojoba for luxury and really soft hands. The foam will intrigue the children and they will actually wash their hands properly whilst playing with the foam – if a small amount fails to get rinsed and ends up on the towel then its Tea Tree content will prevent the towel from getting smelly and disinfect it. If dollops end up on and around the sink, then they will easily swill away without leaving stuck-on grime. And, guess what ,– the childrens’ hands are also clean and disinfected - Eureka!

Heal and disinfect:-

Skin abrasions and scrapes will heal quickly. A direct application of the Tea Tree Oil solution helps heal and disinfect. Use any bottle of solution you have handy, or the ‘Super5 Salve’

Insect Bites:-

Add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil with 30ml Aloe Vera or Grape Seed (or Olive Oil) to help soothe itchiness and discomfort from rashes, insect bites, and sunburn.

Insect Repellent:-

Take a 100ml spray bottle. Add between 8 to 12 drops of Tea Tree Oil , Lavender Oil, or Eucalyptus Oil, and water to fill. Use this mixture on your pets, kids & adults. It works better than any chemical repellent! Make sure you keep the atomiser bottle well shaken. Alternatively mix the oils with Aloe Vero gel and rub it on.)

Manicure/Pedicure:-

Add a few drops to manicurist spray or cream for cuticle care and welcomed relief for cracked nails. Also known to help ward off fungus and treat Athletes Foot– see below.

Mouthwash:-

A drop of Tea Tree Oil in a glass of water makes a good mouth wash. You can also gargle it to help fend off illness. Just be sure not to swallow.

Nails:-

Every-time you manicure your nails, feed them ! Mix around 6 drops of Tea Tree Oil with about 15ml of grape seed oil. This can be re-used if stored in a suitable container. (You can buy one of our little 30ml pots from our on-line shop.) Stand the sample pot containing the mixed oils in a shallow bowl of hot water til warm, and then dip each finger in the solution for a minute or so to soften the cuticles, before you work on the nail. After all the nails are done, finish off with ‘Super5 Salve’ rubbed well into and around the cuticles – and spread over your hands to give them a treat at the same time.
Cuticle Problem:- A friend experienced shredding of the skin to one side of the cuticle on one of her fingers. It cleared with this treatment after a week or so. However, she has learnt her lesson and now wears rubber gloves when cleaning or washing up. I persuaded her to try the hand washing foam with added Jojoba too. It is wonderful for hands and nails and as you use it frequently during the day, it does the job of hand cream without you having to make a special effort.
Ingrowing Toe Nail:- This frequent results in swelling of the surrounding area and infection, which needs to be addressed before surgical removal of the nail to prevent further infection and to help with healing afterwards. A drop of neat Tea Tree Oil on a wet Q-Tip should be applied frequently to the area before surgery. After surgery apply a little of our ‘Super5 Salve’ the ingredients of which include Tea Tree Oil and Aloe Vera, morning and night for speedy healing.

Problem Skin:-

Clean sensitive skin and minor skin irritations with a wipe or cosmetic pad soaked in your Personal Hygiene solution. Apply lightly to problem skin to help reduce oil that can lead to spots and blemishes, and then apply Super5 Salve to soothe, calm, and refresh.

Rash or Sunburn:-

Add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil with 30ml Aloe Vera or Grape Seed (or Olive) Oil to help soothe itchiness and discomfort from rashes, bug bites, and sunburn.

Scalp Treatment:-

Add a few splash of diluted oil to your shampoo to break up product build up and grease. It creates a wonderfully soft foam and leaves hair squeaky clean. The diluted oil can also be sprayed onto the scalp through dry hair to relieve itchiness.

Sinus Infection & Asthma:-

Sinus Infection can be most unpleasant and cause head aches and exhaustion. Place about 6 drops of Tea Tree Oil in a steaming cup. Sit for 20 minutes or so with a towel over your head, once in the morning and again at night. Milder nasal problems can be treated with an external or intra-nostril application of your Personal Hygiene solution or Tea Tree in Aloe vera (6 drops to about 10ml.)

Shower/Bath:-

If you are using unscented shampoo or shower gel, try adding Jojoba Oil & Lavender Oil to the Tea Tree Solution which you can keep handy in your bathroom and spray on, or use your sponge or washcloth to apply. You will love it both the results and the smell. Your skin will feel fresh and moisturized! If you are industrious enough to make your own hand-made soap bars, include Tea Tree Oil in those too.

Spectacles:-

Are you forever cleaning your glasses ? Use your Tea Tree Solution on a cosmetic pad, or a bit of paper kitchen roll, wipe them clean and they will dry smear free, and stay that way longer too! (NB use Solution not neat oil !)

Sunburn:-

Use Super5 Salve to soothe and heal sunburn.

Swollen Glands:-

Use Tea Tree Oil solution on both sides of your neck. Reports indicate rapid, sometimes overnight relief.

Toothache:-

Use a mouthwash (as described above) and try applying to the outside of the cheek close to the source of pain, within 30 seconds you'll be able to taste it in your mouth. This is because it quickly penetrates the skin flesh, going straight to the source of pain and swelling.

Toothbrush Cleaner:-

Add a drop of Tea Tree Oil to your toothbrush to keep it clean and help ward off germs and bacteria. Authors Comment:- his may dissolve the adhesive and make the bristles fall out - better to use you Hygiene Solution and rinse afterwards

Warts:-

Tea Tree Oil has shown itself to be fantastic in fighting warts! In a study that compared Tea Tree Oil to Salicyclic Acid, it was found that the Tea Tree Oil had an analgesic effect, and so there is less pain associated with the wart treatment. It could be the very best of all the home remedies for warts. It seems to work better when used over an extended period. Tea Tree Oil has a low toxicity, and few people even with sensitive skin are affected adversely.

Warnings

Though it's an extremely useful, all purpose substance, please note:-

1) Keep Tea Tree Oil away from the children
2) Avoid swallowing it. It can be poisonous
3) If you are pregnant or nursing you should consult your physician before starting a treatment regimen.
4) Some may experience an allergic reaction, which can consist of itching, dermatitis, dry patches, a rash, or other skin irritations. Start by testing in a very small area before applying Tea Tree Oil to larger areas. Wait a day or so to see if any reaction occurs. As with any other natural essential oil, there always is the chance of allergies. A rare, but serious occurrence from allergies is anaphylaxis. If you have had an allergic reaction to any essential oils in the past, it is best to avoid Tea Tree Oil.
5) For preference do not use at all on Babies or Small Children and certainly never use undiluted on them..I recommend you try Aloe vera gel with Jojoba on the very young without Tea Tree Oil.
