Recipes Using Tea Tree Essential Oil:

Healthy Mouth Blend:

10 drops Peppermint essential oil
5 drops Spearmint essential oil
5 drops Cinnamon essential oil
5 drops Clove essential oil
5 drops Tea Tree or Manuka essential oil
5 drops Lemon essential oil

Blend these together, and add to 8 oz of water. We recommend adding a few drops of carrier oil (such as almond or jojoba) to the water to help disperse the essential oils. If you use just water you’ll need to shake well each time before using. After brushing, add a few drops to your toothbrush and gently brush teeth and gums. Rinse and spit–do NOT swallow! Or, use as a mouth rinse after brushing. You can adjust the strength to your taste by making the essential oil concentration stronger or more diluted. 

DIY Hand Sanitizer:

3 ounces jojoba oil or aloe vera gel 
4 drops ravensara essential oil 
4 drops tea tree essential oil 
4 drops lavender essential oil 
4 drops rosemary essential oil 

Combine all in a small bottle.
