You can make your own 5% solution of tea tree oil to use on a daily basis, using a simple formula.


You either use (3 tablespoons) of tea tree oil for each 32 ounces of shampoo, or 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of tea tree oil for each 100 ml of shampoo.


A rough formula for getting the approximate amount of tea tree oil per millilitre of shampoo is to add the same number in drops to the shampoo.

For instance, if you have 100 mL of shampoo, you would add about 100 drops of tea tree oil to create a roughly 5% solution.


Adding tea tree oil to your regular shampoo can treat hair problems like persistent dandruff, itchy-scalp and even prevent head-lice. Massage it in, leave it on for 5-7 minutes and rinse off.


You can also treat oily scalp and dandruff by massaging five to 10 drops of tea tree essential oil directly into your scalp.
Another way is to combine 8 drops of rosemary essential oil, 9 drops of ylang-ylang essential oil, 2 tablespoons grape seed oil and 9 drops of lime essential oil to form an essential oils mixture to treat oily scalp.  When you use it, you simply apply one teaspoon of the mixture to the hair and scalp and massage. Ideally, leave it overnight, though a couple of hours will do. Then, wash it out with a natural unscented shampoo.

Another effective to treat oily scalp is to make use of Eucalyptus essential oil which regulates the activity of the sebaceous or oil glands preventing the secretion of oil.


Eucalyptus essential oil can also be used directly on the scalp, or you can mix it with one base oil, like olive oil, almond oil, or castor oil. Add a few drops (9 to 10 drops) of eucalyptus essential oil to one quarter cup of olive oil (or castor oil) and then warm the mixture. Now massage your hair and scalp with it and wrap your head with a towel. Wait for about half an hour before shampooing your hair.
