How to mix:

There are many places you can buy tea tree oil such as your local vitamin & nutrition store or you can find it online at sites such as  It is around $6.00 - $10.00 depending on where you buy which seems like a lot for such a small bottle but a little goes a long you get other added benefits of this magical oil!



  1. Is there any type of surface this should NOT be used on?

  2. It can be used on any surface but it's always best to do a patch test just to be sure :)

  3. Thanks for this! I found it via Pinterest, and so glad I did! Our kids use vaporizers in their rooms at night to keep them from coughing when they have a cold, and the moisture in the room has created mold on our windows!

    After you spray, then what? I know you said not to rinse it, but do you wipe it off after it dries? Or wipe it before it dries?


    1. You can wipe the surface after it dries if desired. The key point is to not wipe it while it is still wet. Hope this helps!
