producers of tea tree were exempt from military service until enough
essential oil had been accumulated. It was issued to each soldier and
sailor for them to treat tropical infections and other problems of
warfare, including wounds.
Safety Data: May cause skin irritation. Not for internal use.
Because it is an essential oil do not use it "neat" or right out of the bottle without diluting it because essential oils are like prescription drugs. They are very potent. If you want to use it on your scalp mix it with a carrier oil like sweet almond, apricot, jojoba, etc. The ratio for EO to CO is for ever 1/2 oz of carrier mix with 9 drops of essential oil. For example, if you have a 4oz bottle of jojoba oil and wanted to mix tea tree with it. You would need about 72 drops of the tea tree.
I hope this information help you.
