“Smells like a disinfectant. Medicinal, sharp, acrid in smell” Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: the Next Aromatherapy.
Tea tree hydrosol is anti septic, anti fungal, anti viral and anti bacterial. Used topically it also can help clean scrapes, cuts and wounds as well as most kinds of skin irritations. Tea Tree hydrosol is excellent for fungal conditions such as athlete’s foot, eczema and dandruff. It can be diluted in a douche to help with thrush and candidiasis as well as urinary tract infections.
If children find the smell too strong, tea tree hydrosol can be blended with lavender hydrosol to soften the scent. Tea tree hydrosol can also be used on dogs in the bath or in sprays to help maintain good health. It can be sprayed on your pet’s hot spots.
Tea tree hydrosol is the ultimate cleanser. It is great for teens with troubled skin. Just apply to the affected areas with a cotton pad or cotton ball. If you wax or do any hair removal, spray tea tree hydrosol on afterwards to remove the sting and redness.
