Re: Boys and tea tree oil

I am not "freaking out" about it. I have continued to use some TTO in our diaper wash. I figure it pretty much all gets rinsed out since it's not like the dipes smell like TTO once they go through all those rinses, kwim?

I have some wipes solution cubes with TTO in them, too. I almost always use just plain water, though, so I'm not horribly concerned about that either. I think the amounts that my ds is being exposed to are much smaller than would be in the shampoos, etc. Have you ever used shampoo with TTO in it? Your scalp will tingle and it's very strong smelling, IMO. I think there is WAY more TTO in there than wipes solution or the washing machine.

"Everything in Moderation" right?

Also, the condition was reversible when the products were avoided. So, I guess if my ds starts getting boobies, maybe I will re-consider my stance.

I think it is all a bunch of BS. I use it in my wash and dont intend to stop. When women start using it to grow bigger ones, i will worry.

hmmm.....I hope its ok to use it. I use TTO to treat ds's yeast infections.

Re: Boys and tea tree oil

If you are dumping it on them
rubbing it into them

well... maybe

but what most people are doing amounts to such a sMALL amount that I doubt it would have that much of an affect

Never heard of this. We use a few drops in our wipe water and our bum care also has TTO. I'm not too worried.

This is totally OT, but DH loves preparing a new batch of wipe water. Have you ever noticed how the warm water creates TTO vapors that make you feel a little funny. DH loves to sniff it.
