How to Use Your Tea Tree Oil

Introduction and Thank You

Thank you so much for purchasing AromaOils 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil! When you buy an AromaOils product you are supporting a small family run business.

The purpose of this short guide is to help you use your purchase to the fullest extent, there will hopefully be a few new ways that you can use our Tea Tree Oil!

We are always looking for ways to use our products so feel free to email us your suggestions as wellJ

Top Tip #1 - Tea Tree Oil for Skin Tag Removal:

Tea Tree Oil has been shown to aid in the removal of those unsightly Skin Tags.  Skin tags are small skin over growths that occur most commonly on the neck, chin, underarms, and genitals – anywhere where skin creates friction on itself a Skin Tag can develop.  They are not dangerous or contagious and mostly affect people from an aesthetic point of view.  Sometimes if they are affecting the eyelids they can effect vision so it is important from a medical perspective that in that case you have the Skin Tag removed.

So the remedy is actually very simple to do.  Follow these steps and be consistent with application and over time the Tag will fall off on its own and you won’t have to get it frozen or burnt off at your Doctor’s office.

1) Clean and dry the affected area

2) Apply a few drops to the end of a Q-tip and apply directly to the skin tag

3) Some people place a Band-Aid or piece of duct tape over top of it

4) Do this twice a day, every day and allow for at least 30 days for it to eventually fall off

Just an FYI some folks see results in less than a week and others it can take a little longer like 4-6 weeks, so just be patient with it! Whether you use a conventional medical technique or a natural treatment method like Tea Tree Oil they will both take a little time!  

Top Tip #2 - Tea Tree Oil for Nail Fungus:

Tea Tree oil will clear up Nail Fungus on both toenails and fingernails, but results vary from person to person and stubborn infections can take several months to clear. It thrives in damp public areas, such as locker rooms, showers, etc. and it can be very difficult to treat! It will often last for 6 months to a year.

Nail Fungus is also known as Onychomycosis. The most common symptom of Nail Fungus is the nail becoming thickened and discolored. Fungal infections of the nails appear as white, black, yellow or green dots underneath the nail. Toenails are more vulnerable to the infection than fingernails because most people wear socks and shoes all day creating a damp, warm, and moist environment which is where this fungus thrives.

  1. Trim your nail back
  2. Apply a few drops of 100% pure Tea Tree oil with a cotton ball, Q-tip, or pour it directly from the bottle two or three times a day, usually in the morning and before bed.
  3. Apply it on top of and underneath the tip of the nail.
  4. Continue to apply the oil until the new nail has completely re-grown.

Be patient, in most cases this is a long term treatment (several months and possibly more than 1 bottle)! You will need to use it for a few months.

 Top Tip #3 - Tea Tree Oil for Acne:

Why use Tea Tree Oil for an Acne solution since there are so many options out there in the world? It’s a natural product that isn’t full of harsh chemicals and there is a growing body of scientific evidence supporting its effectiveness.

Most teenagers suffer from acne to some degree at some point in their teenage years and some adults continue to have problems throughout their lives. We are offering a natural solution to relieve years of social awkwardness from outbreaks.

Guidelines for using Tea Tree Oil for Acne

  1. Test your skin’s sensitivity to %100 Pure Tea Tree Oil. Put a couple drops on a cotton ball and rub it on your inner forearm. Wait 2 hours and if no burning sensation, rash, or irritation has occurred then you will have no restrictions. If irritation occurs dilute it down with water until you find a ratio that works for your skin – 5 drops of water and 5 drops of oil – start there and test again.
  2. Clean skin is a must for this to work properly, so clean and dry your face thoroughly first.
  3. Then saturate the proper solution that works for your skin on a cotton ball, then apply the solution to your pimples directly. Then leave it there, do not rinse your face afterwards.
  4. Do this once in the morning and once in the evening until your facial complexion improves to your desired result.

Ways to avoid getting acne in the first place

  1. Keep hair off of your forehead
  2. Never dry your face with a towel that you used to dry your hair with – always use a clean dry towel for your face
  3. Don’t wipe your face off with your sleeve or shirt after sweating while exercising or playing sports

 

Tip #4 - Tea Tree Oil for Athlete’s Foot:

Athlete's Foot is a fungal growth on the skin of the foot that causes peeling, redness, itching, and burning between the toes.  It can also commonly occur in the groin area (Jock Itch). The condition is highly contagious, and thrives in warm, moist areas. It is passed through contact with items such as shoes, socks, and in the shower or pool surfaces. 

This condition always responds well to 100% Pure Tea Tree oil's powerful antifungal properties! However, if proper preventative measures are not in place it could return. 

How to Treat Athlete’s Foot and Jock Itch

  1. This is best done in the morning and evening after a shower, make sure the skin you are treating is clean and dry.
  2. Saturate a cotton ball with Tea Tree Oil and apply it directly to the affected and surrounding areas.
  3. Do this twice per day

 How to prevent Athlete’s Foot and Jock Itch from coming back!

  1. Wash your feet with soap and water, preferably twice a day.
  2. Always dry your feet carefully with your own clean towel.
  3. Never share towels.
  4. Wear clean, natural fiber (cotton or wool) socks and change them often.
  5. Wear well ventilated shoes.
  6. Wear sandals or flip-flops at a public showers, locker rooms and pools.
  7. Keep your own tub or shower clean.

 Tip #5 - Tea Tree Oil for Ringworm:

Ringworm is a condition caused by a skin fungus, not actual worms! It has much in common with Athlete's Foot, Nail Fungus and Jock Itch, and thrives in the same type of conditions. 

It’s commonly spread by skin coming into contact with clothing or towels used by people with one of the above ailments. 

How to Use Tea Tree Oil for a Home Remedy for Ringworm

  1. Clean the affected area and its surroundings with quite a strong dilution; mixing one teaspoon of Tea Tree oil with a half cup of warm water.
  2. Dry the area and make sure any towels used are put in the dirty laundry to avoid risk of further contamination.
  3. Then pour several drops of undiluted Tea Tree oil onto a small piece of sterile cotton gauze and apply it directly to the Ringworm. Make sure all the visible Ringworm has been treated with the oil.
  4. If the undiluted oil irritates the skin use the strongest dilution your skin can tolerate.
  5. Repeat this treatment at least three times a day.

It may take several weeks to clear up a severe infection but in any case continue the treatment for some days after the skin has cleared. This will ensure all the infection has gone for good!

 Tip #6 - Tea Tree Oil for Dry Skin:

If you want a DIY Tea Tree Moisturizer just mix a few drops of Tea Tree oil with a carrier oil of your choice (our AromaOils Jojoba Oil would be a great choice:).  

Aim for a moisturizer solution that is light and that spreads and dissolves into your skin easily. 

We have found that a moisturizer fortified with %100 Tea Tree oil and Aloe Vera Gel helps to soothe, restore and maintain the soft feel women love in their skin.

Tip #7 - Tea Tree Oil for a Face Mask:

To make a refreshing DIY face mask use a mixture of a few drops of %100 Tea Tree oil and our Dead Sea Mud Mask Productl.  This will make a very refreshing face mask.  It should be done once per week for maximum effeciveness  

Tip #8 - Tea Tree Oil for an Air Freshener:

I want to give you a natural solution to making a homemade Air Freshener Solution. It is no secret that there are many chemical air fresheners out there that are just not conducive to being environmentally friendly or non-toxic to our bodies. Many people are developing skin problems, allergies and chemical sensitivities. The problem is that many air fresheners contain phthalates, a chemical that is even banned in many countries. 

When opening your windows just isn't enough, a 100% Pure Tea Tree oil solution can be a great help!

Guidelines for using Tea Tree Oil for Air Freshening

  1. Mix 1 teaspoon of Tea Tree oil with 1 cup of water, add to a spray bottle and you have a marvelous, all natural air freshener for use in any room in your home according to your particular tastes.
  2. If I am using it in the Kitchen around the garbage can or in the bathroom I like to add a few drops of Lemon Oil or simply squeeze a Lemon or 2 and add this to the mixture, especially for a nice bathroom spray.

Tip #9 - Tea Tree Oil for an In-Home Humidifier:

If you or your children suffer from chronic sinus infections, stuffiness, allergies, etc. an in-home humidifier can be a big help. If may be good to keep a small one in the bedroom of the sufferer for more comfort while sleeping. You can also let them run 24/ 7 during the winter months.

The only thing to be careful of with humidifiers in general is bacteria and mold growth – you don’t want to spread germs unknowingly. That is also what makes using Tea Tree Oil in your humidifier is that it is a natural Anti-Microbial or AntiSeptic so you won’t have any problems with bacteria growth. If you are using it in a bedroom I would recommend adding 5 drops to the water, if you are using it in the main living are I would add 10-15 drops

Tip #10 - Tea Tree Oil for an Odor Remover:

Tea Tree Oil is perfect for removing bad odors from practically anything. Mix 1 teaspoon of Tea Tree oil with 1 cup of water and use it as a spray to neutralize unpleasant smells around the home. This mixture makes a nice bathroom spray as well. Use the same strength mixture as a room spray to deodorize a smoke filled room.

Tea Tree oil will also remove old food smells from refrigerators and food coolers and keep them smelling fresh. Spray your pet mat or litter boxes to keep them smelling fresh. Will also remove any lingering 'wet doggy' smells from your car!

That’s all of the most common uses for Tea Tree Oil
