Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil 0.25 fl. oz.
- The key to tea tree essential oil’s effectiveness is the ratio of two constituents: cineole and terpinene. Although these constituents are bactericidal and germicidal, cineole can be a powerful skin irritant. Therefore, tea tree oils with low cineole and high terpinene contents are preferred.
- Clary sage, geranium, and marjoram essential oils sweeten tea tree’s aroma, and spice oils like cinnamon feaf increase its warm, woody notes.
- In addition to home care products, tea tree essential oil is also used in a variety of body care products such as salves, balms, purifying and detoxifying masks, and skin-protecting oils, gels, and sprays. It’s also used in scalp and hair recipes.
- Tea tree essential oil is generally considered a middle note.
There are so many ways to use essential oils! Because essential oils are highly concentrated, we recommend diluting them in a carrier product like skin care oil, water, grain alcohol/water mixed, vodka, unscented lotion, or unscented liquid soap. One to three or four drops of one or two essential oils added to a two ounce oil or soap or lotion is typically adequate for some, but not all essential oils. Some essential oils are so powerful that one drop may be too much! We strongly recommend that you become educated about the safe use of various essential oils for humans and animals before doing any experimentation. Keep oils stored at cooler room temperature and in a dark place for best shelf-life. Always keep away from children! Follow this guide for safe, effective use.
NOTE: Essential oils are not available for expedited or international shipment. Available shipping is ground shipping within continental North America only.
