Tea tree oil is an essential oil that comes from a native Australian plant. Tea tree oil has many benefits especially in the home. In fact, tea tree oil is an exceptional product to include in your daily cleaning routine. Here’s how:

Mould blaster: Combine 1 drop of tea tree oil with 1 cup of water into a small spray bottle. Gently shake the spray bottle over the sink to mix the solution and then spray it onto the mouldy surface. Let the solution stand for a couple minutes, then wipe clean, using a microfibre cloth.

Repel: Keep insects at bay this summer by combining 25 drops of tea tree oil with ¾ cup of water into a spray bottle. Gently shake the spray bottle over the sink to mix the solution and then spray around your door frames and windows. Spraying these areas approximately once a week will keep the bugs out.

Clean: Combine 1-2 teaspoons of tea tree oil with water in a spray bottle to make an all-purpose cleaner for your home. Make sure to gently shake the spray bottle over the sink before each use to ensure the water and oil is mixed. Tea tree oil is natural and can be used in many areas of your home.

Freshen: To amplify the scent of fresh clothing, add a few drops of tea tree oil to your washing machine during the rinse cycle.
