Question Boys and tea tree oil

So, I totally forgot about this study until someone brought it up today. DS wipe mixture has tea tree oil in it. Do you think I should stop using it or do you think it's ok. It's the little bits that you mix one bit to one cup of boiling water. What do you think about this study?

Re: Boys and tea tree oil

Yeah, I have worried about both those oils since so many of the natural products contain it - I decided to just try to avoid it.... too bad since they are both so nice otherwise!

Re: Boys and tea tree oil

never heard of this before...but it's definately odd...does it affect them if you use it in the wash with the diapers?

Well the article said when used on the hair & skin - so I would assume that includes using them in the wash.
