  • 10 drops tea-tree oil
  • 1 tbsp ozonated olive oil optional
  • 1 tbsp virgin coconut oil optional


  • Fill your tub with warm water.
  • Put a few drops of pure tea tree oil into the water. (You can use up to 10 drops of the oil depending on the sensitivity of your skin)
  • Soak in the bath for 5 minutes. Tea tree oil can cause a burning sensation. If you feel any irritation, step out of the bath immediately.
  • If you do not feel any burning sensations, you can stay on in the tub for 10 additional minutes.
  • Rinse yourself and dry your skin.
  • Apply ozonated olive oil directly on the affected areas on your skin. You can also apply pure coconut oil.

If you do not have access to a tub, you can soak a towel with the tea tree oil bath water, remove the excess water, and apply it on the affected areas.
