In reply to: measure for Tea Tree Oil drops=tsp fractions?? posted by Cindy Lee on May 20, 2002 at 21:31:19:In chem labs we approximate 10 drops to 1 mL. So 25 drops is 2.5
mLs, which is about 1/2 tsp or more.
acc. to one site I visited, 1/4 teaspoon is about 1 mL, so I think
that for the 2 heaping spoons of henna you're using you probably
actually need to use a little more than 1/2 tsp of tea tree. But
it's always good to keep EOs to a minimum because they can be harsh
on the skin; if you're getting good results with your current
measurements, I say stick to them!
I have a horrible time measuring oil myself. I have a feeling I
usually add too much!
