Tea tree essential oil is well know for its therapeutic and medicinal properties. It is antibacterial, antiviral and anti fungal and therefore has many uses.
Inhalation: Add a few drops to a bowl of hot water and inhale the steam.
Adding to moisturiser or hand wash: Take a teaspoon of hand wash or basic moisturiser. Add 2 drops of tea tree and apply to your skin. If you use a complex moisturiser, with many active ingredients, this is not advisable.
Massage oil: Mix 5ml of base oil (grapeseed, almond, sunflower, coconut, etc). Add 2 drops of Tea tree essential oil and then use directly on the skin. This is also safe for children over 2 years of age.
*Never drink essential oils.
