DILUTING TEA TREE OIL FOR FACIAL USE



I have been recommending Tea tree Oil (TTO) for a lot of people for many different reasons, the main one being acne and skin care. However, a lot of people have been coming right back asking how exactly to dilute TTO for their personal use.


 
The thing is TTO is a very strong natural oil with great anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which makes it great for fighting acne, but in most cases it tends to be too strong to use as it is directly on the skin and as such needs to be diluted first.

In this post I will share with you some of the many ways of diluting TTO for your personal use.

DISTILLED WATER
The best substance to use to dilute tea tree oil is distilled water. You can either do the diluting in the ratio of 1:1 or 3:1 of tea tree oil to water. When mixed in the ratio of 3:1 it results in a seventy five percent concentration while 1:1 gives fifty percent concentration. In cases of really sensitive skin I recommend diluting it further by a ratio of 1:4 (one part TTO to four parts distilled water) which will gives you a 20% concentration. Diluting tea tree oil with distilled water is good for treating acne, warts and thrush.

OILS
To dilute tea tree oil with oil, you'll need to use carrier oils. Various oils can be used for these purpose and these include apricot, avocado, olive, jojoba and almond oils. You should mix two tablespoons of tea tree oil to half a cup of the carrier oil. This mixture will produce twenty percent concentration. The mixture of tea tree oil and carrier oils is ideal for any anti-fungal treatments. It also works great for acne, however I would not recommend this for people who already have oily skin. If you really want to use it with a carrier oil for acne, in my opinion almond and jojoba oil would be best.

CREAMS
Creams are good diluting agents for tea tree oil. This sort of mixture is ideal for preventing cold sores, yeast infections and scabies. The mixture of creams works best in ratios of 1:19 of oil and cream. If mixed in that ratio one will be able to yield 5 % tea tree solution. With the ratio of 1:9 a ten percent concentration will be achieved.  You can vary these ratios a lot to achieve a good concentration for you since everyone has different levels of tolerance. All in all if you intend to cure scabies and cold sores a five percent concentration is recommended.

Also remember mix your TTO in non-clear bottles (preferably brown) as direct light will cause TTO to loose it's potency over time.
