    TEA TREE HERBAL OIL DESCRIPTION

    Tea Tree Oil is an essential oil distilled from the leaves of the Australian Tree - Melaleuca alternifoia. Its powerful antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal properties make this oil very versatile. Tea Tree Oil is often used for treating minor skin problems such as preventing infections of cuts and scratches or to topically treat acne, cold sores or fungal problems. Tea Tree oil dissolves lumps of white blood cells, which make up pus, making it easier for the body to fight infection. Tea Tree Oil is used in many products that are convenient to have in your home first aid kit and many of these products you can make yourself with a few simple ingredients. One of the most versatile products is Tea Tree Salve which you can use for minor cuts and scratches, on fungal infections of the skin and also to alleviate itching from insect bites.

  • TEA TREE SALVE RECIPE

    1 cup Olive Oil
    1 ounce Beeswax
    1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) Tea Tree Essential Oil

    Place the oil and beeswax in a pint glass canning jar and place in a pan filled with a few inches of water. Heat until the beeswax is melted, stirring to mix well. Once the beeswax is completely melted stir in the Tea Tree essential oil. Pour into small salve containers. Store any excess salve in the refrigerator until needed. Tip: You could use a double boiler to melt the wax and oil but to save messy pan clean-up, it is just as easy to make it in the same jar in which you can store the salve.

  • TEA TREE & WITCH HAZEL ANTISEPTIC SKIN SPRAY RECIPE

    4 ounces Witch Hazel Extract
    2 teaspoons 190 proof Ethyl Alcohol or 100 proof Vodka (optional)
    1/8 Ounce 60 drops Tea Tree Oil

    Dissolve the Tea Tree Oil in the ethyl alcohol and then stir into the witch hazel. Pour into a spray bottle. Shake well before using. Spray on minor cuts and scratches.

    Tip: You can skip using the ethyl alcohol - its main purpose is to help the Tea tree oil dissolve and mix better into the solution. If you do not want to use the ethyl alcohol shaking very well before each use will be necessary.

  • TEA TREE OIL CLEANSER FOR ACNE

    1/4 cup Witch Hazel Extract
    1 Tablespoon Aloe Vera Gel
    10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil

    Apply cleanser with a cotton ball. Use 2 to 3 times a day as needed. Tea Tree Oil can effectively help reduce acne inflammation. It works slower than benzyl peroxide lotions but it is gentler on the skin.

    GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT USING ESSENTIAL OILS

    CHOOSING QUALITY ESSENTIAL OILS

    Be sure your essential oils are of the highest quality and purity. Read labels. Make sure an oil comes from from the specific plant the product name indicates. It is wise to know Latin plant names. For example, lavandula is the plant name for lavender. Avoid blended and reconstituted oils and oils with synthetic or chemical additives. Anything labeled "fragrance oil" is not pure.

    steam inhalation


    ESSENTIAL OIL APPLICATIONS

    Nature's essential oils have extraordinary versatility.

    STEAM INHALATION
    Try inhaling fragrant steam to treat colds, sinus problems or coughs. Add 5 drops of Essential Oil to a bowl of steaming water. Drape a towel over your head and hold your face over the bowl. Breathe deeply.

    DRY INHALATION
    Put 1 to 3 drops of Essential Oil on a handkerchief and hold it under your nose. Breathe deeply.

    HEALING COMPRESSES
    A hot, damp compress can soothe abdominal cramps, and a cold one can relieve fevers, headaches or sunburn. Add 5 drops of Essential Oil to 1/2 cup of cold or hot water. Dip a cloth in the water, wring it out and apply it where necessary.

    HUMIDIFIERS
    To fight the symptoms of colds, bronchitis and asthma, add a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil to a humidifier or vaporizer.

    HERBAL SAUNA
    Use essential oils in the sauna to aid the lungs and help strengthen the immune system. Add 5 drops of an Essential Oil, such as Tea Tree Oil, to 1 cup of water and pour it over the heated sauna stones.

  • THERAPEUTIC EFFECT

    Research shows that the aromatic benefits of essential oils have a range of health-promoting qualities. Essential oils can also address anxieties and stress. Thus, they can be used not only to combat specific health problems, but to enhance well-being. Essential oils are used with aroma lamps, steam inhalations, baths and massages.


    BASIC MASSAGE OIL RECIPE

    8 Ounces Any combination of Vegetable Oils (Carrier Oil)
    12 Drops Essential Oil
    Pretty Dark Colored Bottle

    Add essential oils to vegetable or herbal oils.


    Herbal & Vegetable Oils: Apricot Kernel, Sunflower, Wheat Germ, Safflower, Sweet Almond, Olive, Vitamin E, Rosehip, Avocado, Jojoba, St. John's Wort, Evening Primrose.

    Essential Oils: Sandalwood, Lavender, Lemon, Tangerine, Ylang-Ylang, Neroli, Sage.

    FOR DILUTING FOR USE

    Essential oils are very highly concentrated and should be diluted with water, plant extracts or carrier oils before being applied to the skin. Depending on the oil, undiluted oils can cause serious skin irritations.

    Extra Tip: Store essential oils in opaque glass bottles in a cool, dark place. Refrigerate citrus oils. Label oils clearly. Properly stored, essential oils will keep over a year.

    CARRIER OILS

    Carrier oils do exactly what they say: They "carry" the potent essential oil for use on the skin. They are fatty, plant-based oils - usually vegetable, nut or seed oils, such as Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Olive Oil, and Wheat Germ Oil. Each has its own therapeutic value and add to the essential oil's value. Use up to 15 drops of essential oil per ounce of carrier oil. Prepare small quantities as needed.

    OTHER BASES

    There are several plant extracts for diluting essential oils and may be used in the same way as carrier oils. Witch Hazel is astringent; Aloe Vera is a moisturizing healer for burns, cuts, and irritated skin; and Rose Water imparts its scent and is antiseptic.

  • CONTROVERSIAL BELIEFS

    In Europe, the ingestion of essential oils is generally accepted, primarily because it is done under a health care provider's care. But U.S. herbalists are more conservative. Because their active ingredients are highly concentrated, essential oils can be dangerous if used improperly or in excess.
