Has anyone tried this?  It has antifungal properties so I think I will try to put some on my edges 2x  day.  What do you think?

I was going to put it straight on.  But thats only because I typically use an olive oil moisturizer in my hair as well, so it shouldn't cause irritation.

Two times per day applying tea tree oil, to your scalp is excessive IMO.  Apparently you are trying to probably thicken, grow your edges.  Honestly Tea Tree Oil alone, will not yield that result.  Be careful that you do not dry your scalp out.  It is best to use a carrier oil, and add other essential oils such as peppermint, rosemary, lavender, thyme.  Start out with 10 drops of each oil to 3 ounces of carrier oil, such as Grape Seed, Apricot, Jojoba, *Castor Oil* Smile, Sunflower, Safflower.  This is a simple recipe, you might not get very fast result.  But, it will work Wink

Yes IA w Claudie ... using essentials oils or tinctures straight might adversely affect/overload your liver.
 
Claudie knows more than I do on this but I'll suggest diluting it in coconut oil.   Coconut oil shares some of the positive qualities of tea tree oil but it can be readily absorbed into the skin with no side effects.

Thanks for the advice ladies.  I will add the tea trea oil to coconut oil and apply once a day.  Do you know where I can buy a dropper and a measuring device for such a small amount?

slykitten...health food stores usually have droppers and small dark bottles to hold your mixture in.  tea tree is ok straight but if you aren't going to blend it than once every other day

Is castor oil a carrier?  I have some JBCO that I recently bought, so maybe I can mix them together?

I use tha Ultra Sheen Anti-itch Hairdress with tea trea oil its amazing I don't mix it with anything. I use casto oil around my edges and sometimes on my scalp it has made my hair thicker and got longer.Big%20smile
