Re: Tea Tree Oil Recipe

Minnewaska,

I don't expect the gelatin to evaporate, just the moisture to come out of it.

If it works I will let ya know, if not, I have another idea. At any rate, I still have a lot of the oil left over for other usages.

Greg

Re: Tea Tree Oil Recipe

Hope it works.

Try it side by side with kanberra by putting each in a container with something that will quickly go moldy. See if they work the same. Use a control with no tea tree oil at all.

Re: Tea Tree Oil Recipe

So far, my gelatin/tree tea oil mixture is holding up and not evaporating. Right now, I have 1/2 TBS to 2 cups of water and 4 gelatin packets. I think that the tea tree oil needs to be increased 4x and the gelatin halved.

I like the control experiment, so I'll do that with my next batch. There are a lot of moldy things in my daughter's room so that's a good lab.....

Re: Tea Tree Oil Recipe

Progress Report from this end.....

As I said I made about 6 or so ounces. The smell worked well for a time, then, in about one week the gel skimmed over and it stopped working. I removed the HARD layer and it was working once more. About a week went by, then another layer of HARD glass or plastic like skim. I peeled that off today and it's working but only a small amount remains. I also use one of the small battery reefer fans next to it. That may have speed up of the skimming. Next week I may try another idea with more oil in the mix and a different absorbent material. I have attached a photo of how it's looking today.

Disclaimer. We lived aboard full time in the San Francisco Bay area, cruised down through Mexico, and now have the boat on her trailer here in Az. In all that time we have had no mold to speak of. It may be due to living aboard or now the area we are at, so I can NOT attest to mold control of the oil!
