I have purchased this oil numerous times and really love the sent, however the last bottle I purchased seemed very watered down. Is there a best time of year to buy essential oils when they might be at their peak? I am also finding this to be true with the spearmint and lavender. Just curious, have you changed vendor?
I have tried many tea tree oils in the past and have only "tolerated" their scent to get the essential oil benefits of them. This tea tree is lighter and less "funky" than them and I like it better. Thanks!
Use this in blends and cold process soaps.
In the soap it almost seems to lose that strong tea tree smell and takes on more of a simple tea smell, which is nice in a way unless you are wanting that strong tea tree scent. I do have it with bentonite clay so perhaps that is why the scent changed. I like it either way and am very pleased :)
this is the main ingredient in lice repealing shampoo i was given a bottle from a friend used it in my kids shampoo bar a out break at school over 1/2 of her class had lice but she has remained lice free for 2 yrs this is what got me into soap making i don't see a recipe for it but i add 1/4 oz per lb of soap
I used this in an activated charcoal & bentonite clay cold processed soap and it turned out awesome. When I made the soap it was so strong, but now that my bars are cured there is a slight smell of it. It's very light and it actually smells good to me being this way as I'm not the biggest fan of it. I'll add that I didn't add any other scents. I will definitely make this again because I love this soap!
