Tea tree oil comes from Melaleuca alternifoliais, a plant native to Australia. It has a myriad of topical uses (note: it should NEVER be ingested).  My favorite characteristic of tea tree oil is that it has antibacterial properties. I use it in my wipe solution for the baby's cloth wipes.

1. In cloth wipe solution
2. Prevent lice- put a few drops on your scalp
3. Soothe sunburns
4. Use in natural cleaning solutions- helps kill mold and bacteria
5. Use in homemade deodorant
6. Remove ticks
7. Use in homemade body scrubs and washes
8. Treat dry scalp
9. In a steam treatment for sinus congestion
10.  In a bath for sore muscles
11. In a reed diffuser for aromatherapy
12.  In homemade laundry detergent
13. In homemade dryer sheets or no dryer balls

It is important to use a quality tea tree oil to get the best results. I was sent Tea Tree Oil from Apothecary Extracts to review and was really impressed. The bottle is REALLY large- 4 ounces! It's pharmaceutical grade so it worked very well. It had the characteristic strong tea tree oil smell and I liked using it in homemade cleaner for my bathroom.

All purpose tea tree oil cleaning solution:


·      2 tsp. Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil
·      2 cups distilled water
·      6 oz. white vinegar
·      20 drops of lemon essential oil (optional to get rid of vinegar smell)

Combine all ingredients into spray bottle and give it a good shake. Shake it prior to each use because the oils will separate from the water.
