Tea Tree-Melaluca Alternifolia
Method of Extraction:
Steam distilled from the leaves of the bush
Tea Tree is highly anti-septic, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal. It is beyond measure as skin cleanser. Try adding 25 drops to a bottle of shower gel for a really cleansing experience. For problem skin, blend 2 drops of Tea Tree in 5ml (a teaspoon) of Jojoba oil – apply twice daily.
Or try a weekly steam facial using 1 drop of Tea Tree with 2 drops of Mandarin in a bowl of just-boiled water. Tea Tree may irritate some sensitive skins and, although a very small amount may be dabbed neat on spots, bites, etc. by most people this is not recommended.
To help keep feet fresh and healthy, try using 2 drops of Tea Tree with 2 drops of Lemon in a foot bath.
To maintain healthy hair for school-children and adults alike, dilute 5 drops of Tea Tree, 3 drops of Geranium and 2 drops of Lavender in 20ml of Coconut oil. Massage into the scalp and leave as long as possible before washing out.
