Make your own medicinal products such as this Tea Tree soap recipe. At my store we added Eucalyptus essential oil to mellow out the sharpness of the Tea Tree and add some earthy warming components. This was a great soap for skin conditions and especially for bug bitten skin. The tea tree would help to cleanse the bit areas and speed up the healing.

The image below shows how I used to make my Tea Tree and Eucalyptus soap. This was in the top 10 – 15 best selling bars at the store.
Eucalyptus essential oil is effective for treating respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, COPD, and sometimes helpful with tuberculosis. The healing properties are obtained by inhaling and diffusing the oil, which dilates the blood vessels and allows for more oxygen. Also works well to cleanse surfaces and the air and promotes healthy teeth and gums when used in a mouth wash.
This bar below is a pastel green and packaged very nicely:
Tea Tree is often added to other essential oils as well, including peppermint and lavender. When making new scent blends, I would hold both bottles up to my nose and smell. Some oils can be very strong and not allow for an accurate scent reading, so I would take, for example, 2 drops of tea tree and 2 drops of peppermint, into a small bowl, mix the oils, then you’ll get a more balanced scent.
Below is a beautiful all natural eucalyptus bar, using green clay for tinting. Very pretty with the embedded logo.
