Tea Tree essential oil has been used for centuries to combat many issues, particularly those that stem from fungal, viral, and bacterial sources.  Things like ringworm, candida, yeast, athlete's foot, thrush, dandruff, acne, and warts respond well to Tea Tree. 

In addition, lice, dust mites, and the stings or bites of insects are dealt with quite thoroughly when Tea Tree is used.

    Inhalation:

    Internal:  

    Although the quality of Selah Oils is excellent, it is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a certified physician who is also certified in aromatherapy. We recommend getting internal dosing instructions from a licensed physician as some essential oils are not recommended for oral consumption. This is in no way a reflection on our oil quality, only a matter of safety and caution with respect to how concentrated essential oils are. When used within safe parameters, and under your physician's care, the quality of our essential oils is such that they can be used internally if deemed appropriate.

    However, with that said, it is important to remember the extreme concentration of essential oils. "Using essential oils by rubbing them into the skin or via inhalation is in many cases more effective than oral delivery" (Schnaubelt 96).

    All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.

    Cautions

    All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion. It is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a licensed physician who is also certified in aromatherapy. 

    Low risk of skin sensitization.  Old or oxidized oils should be avoided. (Tisserand, 441)

    Tea Tree is known to antidote homeopathic remedies. Please use caution when using Homeopathy with oils.

    Repeated use can result in contact sensitization.

    If for any reason you get essential oils in your eyes, put carrier oil along the eyebrows above the eyes and on the cheekbones below the eyes.

    Do not put essential oils inside the ear canal.
