Tea Tree

Tea tree oil uses are numerous: making homemade cleaning products, diffusing it in the air to kill mold, applying it topically to heal skin issues and using it to treat viral infections. It’s becoming an increasingly popular active ingredient in a variety of household and cosmetic products, including face wash, shampoos, massage oils, skin and nail creams and laundry detergents. Tea tree’s natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory actions make it an essential oil that should truly be part of everyone’s natural medicine cabinet.



While records show that tea tree has been used for thousands of years by some indigenous people, thankfully today science is finally catching up and describing why tea tree oil is so effective. To date, over 327 scientific studies refer to tea tree oil’s antimicrobial prowess alone.

Instead of buying the fancy lice prevention spray, I decided to buy pure tea tree oil, instead, and make my own.

How to make your spray:

•Use an eye dropper to drop 2-3 drops of pure tea tree oil (per ounce of liquid) in a spray bottle full of water or detangler

•Shake well

•Spray on hair, rub in with your hands to distribute evenly, and style as usual

That’s it! Since we were spraying water or detangler onto the kids’ hair every morning, anyway, this didn’t add a single second to our morning routine but probably saves us hours of heartache over an infestation. (Knock on wood)
