How to Make Tea Tree Oil At Home
The tea trees are the plant native to Australia. The leaves of the tree were actually used as the substitute for tea in the past and therefore giving the tree its name. Eventually, these got used to treating the bad skin condition. From cuts to scrapes, burns, infection and insect bites, people used to apply the tea tree. In recent times, as the availability of tea tree got increased, people think of using it on every specific purpose; therefore, some people out there opt for making the tea tree essential oil in their house.
Process of Making Tea Tree Oil
First, put the tea tree leaves in a pot and then pour enough water into that pot to cover it adequately.
After that, try to place the vegetable steamer into that pot over the tea leaves and water so that there is currently a flat area covering the watered leaves.
Then, try to place that measuring cup into the center of that specific vegetable steamer.
After that, try to put the cover of the pot, and it should be upside down. Basically, try to place it in a tricky way so that the knob of the pot faces down. It should get centered right over the top of a measuring cup.
After completing the previous process to make the tea tree essential oil, you have to boil the water on the high to vapor the leaves. After that, the boiled water will start evaporating and also condensing on an upside-down cover. The condensation will then slide towards the pot’s handle and then into the measuring cup.
After that, put the ice cubes right on the top of the pot cover only to accelerate the steam condensation faster.
Once you find that all the ice cubes of the pot get melts, turns the gas burner off.
After that take off the cover from the pot and then pour all the ice cube cold water into the sink. Then take off the measuring cup and use the pot-holders while finishing the steps correctly. Basically, the entire process should get done carefully because of the full tea tree oil uses.
Then you have to pour all the measuring cup contents into another separating funnel as well. But always make sure that the funnel’s stopcock of the bottom gets closed.
Then, the top of the funnel should get closed and shake the measuring cup contents briskly.
Then, capsize the funnel and then open the cover or lid to release the pressure
Then, you will notice an entirely bright line, which will appear in the liquid over there. The oil will also float to the top of the water.
Put the glass bottle right under the stopcock to release the water. And then you have to pour the raw oil into another glass bottle, which comes with the dark color.
Once you get done with your previous level, try to repeat the same at least 2-3 times more. It will help you to extract the remaining oil from the tea tree leaves. You can work this entire process in your home for the last tea tree oil uses.
