Tea tree is adored by children and adults alike for its clean, cool scent. It has been used to purify and cleanse the skin, and is especially good for clearing and cleansing the air, especially during times when the kids go back to school. Tea tree is also masterful for cleaning areas that have stubborn aromas, especially tough to clean stains in bathrooms and kitchens. It is also helps to combat skin challenges, especially in teenagers. It helps support healthy skin and for hormonal complications and is good for athletes. If tea tree is too medicinal smelling, just add some lavender, pine or lemon...any of the ‘blends well with’ oils above, and that will help assuage the strong aroma! Tea tree has a very distinct smell, and can be a little too strong for some. That being said, it is not a particularly good oil for the bedroom, unless your immune needs a little pick me up!
Safety and contra-indications: tea tree is safe for most people, including children and the elderly. However, everyone is different and you should test it diluted in a carrier to see if you react to it. Many sources may say to use tea tree neat (undiluted), but you should always use a carrier oil to be safe.

Suggested use: mix 2 drops tea tree, 1 drop eucalyptus, 3 drops grapefruit and 4 drops lavender in a carrier oil like jojoba for any skin challenges.
Take care: Do not apply without a carrier oil. Do not use with infants and children without instruction, and if so at a greatly diluted ratio of ½% or less. The recommendation for topical use is from 3 to 5 % for most people. However, take care if you are elderly or are ill. If you have a reaction to it, stop using and immediately contact a medical professional. Not for internal use unless under the guidelines of an aromatherapist. Remember that essential oils and absolutes are 75 to 100 times stronger than the plant they come from, so they are very different than an herbal or other natural preparation.
