Whether you wet or dry pail, add a few drops to your nappy bucket as a disinfectant or for a fresh smell.
Tea tree oil is derived from the branches and leaves of the Australian tea tree bush (Melaleuca Alternifolia). It’s a natural antiseptic and disinfectant with many uses. A bottle lasts a long time as you only use a few drops at a time.
If you’re dry-pailing then use a few drops on some fabric at the bottom of the bucket or attached to the lid to keep it smelling fresh.
If you’re soaking, then add a few drops of tea tree oil to your bucket instead of a traditional nappy sanitiser.
Please note that some babies can be sensitive to the oil so ensure you rinse the nappies well. In addition some manufacturers discourage the use as it can deteriorate the nappy fibres. Do not use tea tree oil neat on the skin.
This oil is supplied from Little Lambs, a Welsh-based family-run company.
