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 nutmeg and cinnamon 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, unscented lotion, or unscented liquid soap. Follow this guide for safe, effective use.
