I just bought some tea tree oil, because I kept seeing different recipes that use it. Now I can't find those recipes. What are good ways to use tea tree oil?

 I keep some in a spray bottle in my kitchen and bathroom to use as a cleaner. I have also used it diluted in the bathtub while sick, and on scalp to relieve dryness. I also spray it in DD hair in the am before she goes to school, tto repels lice and I'm paranoid.lol

I put a drop in our laundry sometimes.  I also use it around our doors in a diluted spray to keep bugs out.  I clean our kitchen floor with it.  Use it in a spray for DDs bum.  Put a drop in bath water.  I love it!

I've used it on things like warts and ringworm. It's astringent so it works well on big pimples too.
You can use it in cleaning solutions, wipe solutions (very diluted).

Cool. Do you put some on them and then a band aid?

How do you use it on warts? My daughters hands are covered in them and I'm looking for ways to help get rid of them.

Here's a good read for anyone who dilutes TTO more than a 4 to 1 ratio:

Yes, it's geared toward cloth diapers but is applicable for any diluted version.
I use it for acne, in deodorant, and for cuts/scrapes.
