Botanical name: Melaleuca alternifolia
Renowned for its antiseptic properties, tea tree oil is yet another staple in my home for attending to minor cuts and scratches. It's generally a popular go-to for treating the skin for acne too.
- 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.
How to use
How to use
Use in an appropriate essential oil diffuser. Depending on the oil, it may damage some kinds of plastics, so we generally prefer using clay diffusers with tea lights.
Certain essential oils are also lovely as room sprays, insect repellents and linen fresheners.
Some essential oils are toxic to pets. Please read up about them as much as you can before using it around your furbabies.
We do not advocate the ingestion of any essential oils, unless under the direction of a doctor or certified clinical aromatherapist.
Be sure to dilute essential oils if you are looking to apply them to the skin, as most essential oils can irritate the skin when used at full strength.
