- Tea tree oil can be used in vaporisers, diffusers or, if you don't have one, just put a few drops of the oil on a piece of cotton wool or fleece and place it in a warm place to purify the indoor air and improve the smell. For example, on a radiator to help the scent spread from the heat. This is particularly valuable for cleaning and purifying the air in children's rooms, common areas and areas where there are sick people. To purify indoor air in schools or kindergartens, it will be safer to ventilate the room when children are not present and to invite the children into the clean air space.
- Tea tree oil can be used to clean surfaces and wash floors. In this case, add a few drops of the oil to water or detergent and use for cleaning. If you only add it to water, wear gloves when cleaning, as essential oils do not dissolve in water and can irritate the skin on your hands when pure. Tea tree oil can be mixed with vinegar, baking soda, and eucalyptus or lemon essential oils. It's also great for refreshing the smell of carpets – make a spray bottle with water and spray.
- Tea tree oil is one of the most popular remedies during the cold season – you can use it to clean indoor air and surfaces; dilute it with a basic vegetable oil and apply it to the pannus, chest, back, feet; use it for body-strengthening massages, chest balms, etc.; or breathe the vapours over a bowl of warm water. Tea tree essential oil is contained in our blends 'Children's germ killer' and 'Protective power'.
- For problem skin, you can incorporate tea tree oil into creams, lotions, cleansers or masks. When used on the whole face, it is usually diluted to 1–1.5 %. If you are applying topically only to acne or acne-prone areas, the concentration can be higher, up to 4–10 %.
- Masks with tea tree oil will be useful to soothe a flaky scalp: e.g. 30 ml coconut oil and 10 drops of tea tree essential oil. Massage this mask onto the scalp, leave it on for a few hours or overnight, then wash off with a mild shampoo.
- After a visit to the swimming pool, sauna or beach, it is a good idea to apply a tea tree treatment to the feet and soles: dilute the essential oil with a base vegetable oil (e.g. coconut) or gel to 2-10%.
- For good-smelling laundry, add a few drops of tea tree oil to the detergent and wash as normal.
- For oral hygiene, tea tree oil is used in rinses or toothpastes. It will be particularly valuable after dental procedures. Do not use too much so that the highly concentrated essential oil does not damage enamel.
- For small wounds (e.g. after shaving or scraping), you can use tea tree oil diluted with vegetable oil or gel (as a base, regenerating plant oil is ideal). In exceptional cases, you can use pure oil on a very small area of skin.
- For general body strengthening, if you are feeling weak and weak, especially during the changing seasons, it is effective to inhale tea tree essential oil – you can vaporise it at home, or sniff it on a tissue or your personal sniffer (imhaler). Additionally, blend with pine, spruce, eucalyptus essential oils.
