- For disinfecting minor cuts and scratches, dilute 1 drop of tea tree oil to 10 dropsÂ of carrier oil of your choice (virgin coconut oil, or extra virgin olive oil areÂ good ones that are easy to find) and apply onto the affected area. Please make sure that the cut or graze has been thoroughly cleaned with soap and water before applying the oil.
- For a quick facial to attend to mild acne and pimples, add 1 drop of tea tree oil to a bowl of warmÂ water.Â Dip a face cloth into this water, swish it around a bit, wring out the water and place the warm towel over your face until it gets cool – then repeat. Close your eyes when you do this, as the tea tree oil may cause a stinging sensation in your eyes if you don’t. Finish your mini facial by splashing cool water onto your skin, and pat dry. Follow with moisturiser if needed.
