Tea Tree

Tea Tree essential oil, also known as Melaleuca oil, is widely recognized for its antimicrobial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties. It offers a range of uses and benefits for personal care and household applications. Here are some common uses for Tea Tree essential oil and how to use it:

Natural Cleaning: Tea Tree oil is a potent natural cleaner with antimicrobial properties. Add a few drops of Tea Tree oil to a spray bottle filled with water and use it to clean surfaces, countertops, bathrooms, or even your yoga mat. It can help eliminate bacteria and unpleasant odors.

DIY Hand Sanitizer: Tea Tree oil can be used to create your own hand sanitizer with antimicrobial properties. Mix a few drops of Tea Tree oil with aloe vera gel and rubbing alcohol (or vodka) to make a DIY hand sanitizer. This can be useful when you don't have access to soap and water.

Inhalation for Respiratory Support: Tea Tree oil can be inhaled to support respiratory health and alleviate congestion. Add a few drops of Tea Tree oil to a bowl of hot water, cover your head with a towel, and inhale the steam. This can help clear nasal passages and ease breathing.

Remember to dilute Tea Tree oil before applying it topically, as it can be irritating to the skin when used undiluted. Perform a patch test before using it on a larger area to check for any skin sensitivity or allergic reactions. Also, keep in mind that Tea Tree oil is for external use only and should not be ingested.

It's always a good idea to consult a qualified aromatherapist or healthcare professional for personalized advice, especially if you have specific health concerns or conditions.
