There are lots of benefits of Tea Tree Oil for housewives and I discussed some of them below.
Tea Tree oil has rare properties like anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antiviral that are beneficial for moms to keep the whole family safe and healthy.
The Benefits of Tea Tree Oil for Use as a Natural Home Remedy
This little bottle goes a long way!
#1 Natural Wipe Solution
It is an essential ingredient in my natural wipe solution because of its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties. It safely disinfects the baby’s diaper area.
#2 Treat Cradle Cap or Dandruff
I also have used tea tree oil on my children’s scalps to treat cradle cap or dandruff. I’ve applied a few drops directly to their scalp. Some suggest adding it to their shampoo. Tea tree oil is a concentrated natural oil safe for most skin types but those with sensitive skin may prefer to dilute it.
Use it as an antiseptic in your first aid kit to disinfect cuts. However, it does sting!
#4 Treat Diaper Rash or Mild Skin Infections
Oil doesn’t mix well with water. So, I put 1/4 cup Epsom salts and 5 drops of Tea Tree oil in a warm bath to help treat a persistent diaper rash or mild skin infections.
Drop the oil right into the salt and pour it under the running faucet to help dissolve. Tea Tree oil penetrates into the lower skin layers to treat topical infections.
#5 Relieve Congestion and Fight Infection
Add 3-5 drops to a bowl of steaming water. Cover head with a towel and inhale for 5-10 minutes (or as long as the little one can stay still!).
Obviously, with the boiling water, the mom must stay with the child to closely monitor this procedure to prevent burns.
#6 Inhale in a Vaporizer
If the child is too small to safely and effectively inhale steam from a bowl, add 3-5 drops of Tea Tree oil to a cotton ball to use with your vaporizer.
Use this while the child sleeps to break down mucus in the nasal passages and lungs, helping to clear the congestion.
#7 Disinfectant to Fight Household Germs
Use as a cleaning alternative to bleach when wanting to go after heavy-duty household germs! Simply mix 2 cups water, 3 T. liquid soap, and 20-30 drops of tea tree oil.
Now you’ve got a cleaning solution to knock out viruses and bacteria! Find more recipes for safe homemade cleaning products here!
Needless to say, this is a staple in any active household!
*Always research the essential oil thoroughly before using it with your child or especially with babies and ask for advice from a qualified practitioner.
