Carrier oils and Tea Tree Oil

I received this comment from a reader:
I just used my tea tree oil today on a cut on my finger.  It drew out some of the infection and started to dry up the cut immediately .....  however, I do also state that the oil is very strong. I have a friend who used the oil on her babys severe diaper rash  and to her dismay  the oil "burned"  babys skin  something terrible . 

Because Tea Tree oil is such a multi-dimensional oil, I wanted to post some information on carrier oils that pair well with essential oils. I would never suggest using any essential oil by itself, regardless of use. Here are some sites with more info on carrier oils.

It is easy to delve into the world of naturals and begin use before doing any research, because we assume; if it's natural, it's safe no matter what! I say "we" because this is a mistake I continue to make. While I do wholeheartedly believe that natural products and substances derived from the earth are safer than chemical products, there are ways to use, and misuse them. From my short experience, a little research really pays off. Typically, I find not only the safest, most effective way to use the product, but my eyes are opened to a vast amount of uses that I would have never thought of previously.These essential oils really pack a punch, they are loaded with so many amazing qualities, benefits and remedies, and many times all it takes is a drop! All of this being said, go explore!! Don't let your lack of knowledge keep you from using a product that may literally change your life! Just do a little studying - nowadays studying=20-30 minutes of clicking around online :)
