Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil
Directions from packaging:
There are various ways to use essential oils, whether for their therapeutic properties, to enhance well-being or purely for pleasure. Massage: There is nothing quite like a massage to make you feel soothed or energized. As pure essential oils should not be applied directly to the skin, they need to be diluted first. To do this, mix up to 5 drops of pure essential oil, or blend of oils, per 10mls (one tablespoon) of vegetable oil or lotion blending base. Bathing: Bathing with pure essential oils is one of the easiest and most enjoyable forms of therapy. Just before getting into a full bath, add 8-10 drops of essential oil, or blend of oils, then agitate the water to disperse. While you relax in the bath, the skin absorbs a small amount of oil and the heat of the water slowly evaporates the rest. Vaporization: The evaporative properties of pure essential oils make them ideal for use in a vaporizer. To create the ambience of your choice, simply add 6-12 drops of essential oil to your favorite Tisserand vaporizer - perfect for the home or workplace. Inhalation: Some pure essential oils, such as eucalyptus with its wonderful clearing properties, are ideal for inhalation. Add 3-5 drops of pure essential oil to a bowl of very hot water (not boiling) and inhale the vapor for 5-10 minutes. If this method is not convenient, simply add 1-2 drops of essential oil to a tissue and inhale - ideal if you are out and about. Best kept refrigerated and used within one year of opening.
