Now I’ve actually had this product for over a month. Apologies in advance to Pauline who reached out to ask if I wanted to try this out. Of course I did, I’d used tea tree oil before, typically in shampoos, so why not try it again?
So I finally got around to using this in the last week or so. Added bonus is it comes with a free guide with 53+ recipes to try out. Which was awesome as I had only ever heard of using it in shampoos. I wasn’t going to try that this time as my hair has become super sensitive over the years and I didn’t want to muck it up.
I wasn’t able to try everything (some of the added ingredients were very hard to come buy or rather on the pricey end because I would have had to buy in bulk). BUT I was all about the Tea Tree Oil Steam Inhalant! I have horrid allergies and I love a good steam to clear out my nasal passages. Here’s what you need for this one: 4 cups of hot water, 2 drops Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil, 1 drop eucalyptus oil (actually had this one on hand), 1 large bowl, and 1 large towel.
You take all of the above and do the following to mix it all together: Bring water to a boil and remove from heat. Pour water into a heat safe bowl and add tea tree and eucalyptus oils. Swirl to blend. Cover your head with towel so the steam does not escape. Sit like that for 5-10 minutes and enjoy being able to breathe again. I plan to do this at least once a week as I do have Rx sinus sprays that I have to use. But this I found is a nice break from the medicine.
I also tried out the Tangy Disinfecting Mouthwash, because again I happened to have everything on hand in the house. For this one you would need: 6 drops Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil, 3 drops of Stevia (optional – I’m not a fan of Stevia so I left it out), 1 1/3 cups distilled water, 5 drops peppermint essential oil. Again, take all that and combine all ingredients together in a bowl until blended and transfer to a glass or plastic bottle with a lid. Shake well and store in medicine cabinet.
Using this one is again super simple: shake well before each use. Fill lid with mouthwash and rinse as normal. Also they were not kidding about the tangy. Talk about a wake up call for your mouth! One important thing to note: avoid swallowing the mouthwash. Tea tree oil should not be ingested.
The last thing I did was apply the tea tree oil directly to my toe nails using a cotton swab. I know it might sound gross, but sometimes I’ve found my nail beds get a little discolored. But I used the tea tree oil for a week, at night, and noticed a big difference in the color of my nail beds. Best bet is to cover your feet with cotton socks after applying the tea tree oil so it doesn’t get all over the bed!
There are no pictures as I have a new phone and have no idea how to transfer them to my mac. Sorry about that.
