Available ready to use as a spray at 9% dilution or undiluted so the user can dilute as desired. Choose Spray or EOs only in the Size/Price drop down.
Make your own SPRAY: Tender Tissue is handy to use as a spray. To make a spray, simply decide on the appropriate dilution ratio, add the number of drops to the spray bottle, and then fill with the carrier oil of your choice. For example, for 5% Tender Tissue in a 1oz bottle, put 50 drops Tender Tissue blend in the bottle then fill to just below the shoulder of the bottle with carrier oil.
Kurt Schnaubelt PhD, founder and science director of the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy, writes the following in regard to using essential oils vaginally: "According to Dr. Belaiche the use of suppositories (vaginal or rectal) presents a double benefit for aromatherapy treatments:
1. The essential oil acts topically (in-situ) if used for vaginal disorders.
2. The essential oil is absorbed readily by the afferent veins to the internal iliac vein, and by the pelvic-lymphatic system.
The adult dosage is 0.2 mL of essential oil per 2 mL carrier oil, which is a 9% dilution ratio.
Clinical studies by Dr. Belaiche showed that "Women with vaginitis caused by the fungus Candida albicans were treated with Melaleuca alternifolia [Tea Tree] by insertion of vaginal gelatin capsules.
The dosage given was 0.2 mL of Melaleuca alternifolia per 2 mL gelatin capsule [which is a 9% dilution ratio]. The capsules were inserted for a period of 90 days each day before bed. Of 27 patients, 23 showed a complete cure with the disappearance of burning and white discharge. Biological examinations showed the disappearance of Candida albicans in 21 patients.
This remarkable success is due, according to Dr. Belaiche, to two factors:
1. The very strong effect of the essential oil of Melaleuca alternifolia on the fungus itself, which is clearly demonstrated by respective aromatograms.
2. The high tolerance for Melaleuca alternifolia oil, which permits treatments of long duration (three months) without the slightest irritation to the mucus membranes."
Use to prepare perineum in preparation for birth and is an excellent ointment to soothe and heal irritation due to Candida (yeast).
Application Suggestions (see Essential Oil Usage) for more information and a dilution chart)

1. I struggled with yeast infections after every birth until Linda made up this blend. It works, and it works fast. It’s very soothing too. After using this, I have never had another problem. I highly recommend this to my friends with similar needs. – A.L.
2. I loved the tender ointment for after the birth of my son. I tore and after using it one time, it didn't burn again. - T.M.
3. We have used the Tender Skin LOTS and have lent some to a family who's daughter suffers from eczema/psoriasis. It worked so well they bought it from us. - S.W.
4. I have a little testimony about the Tender Tissue Spray. My dog had been acting weird for a couple days, and I couldn't figure out what was wrong until I noticed a huge chunk of fur missing from her back thigh and an open, weeping, raw area. I knew she was feeling miserable, so I kept an eye on it. A friend let me borrow a cone collar for her, but I didn't like how it kept getting worse, so I cleaned it up, and the only thing I had on hand was the Tender Tissue Spray, which I know has "healing oils" in it. I thought it was worth a shot because the next step would have been the vet. A couple hours and many prayers after spraying, I noticed it wasn't so weepy and she wasn't trying to bite at it as much. I sprayed again, and by the next morning she seemed to actually be feeling better and the wound was "dry." I sprayed only a couple more times, and she started acting her normal self. While it's still a little scabby, it hasn't oozed since, and it looks like the fur is already starting to try to grow back in. We only had to use the cone for maybe 2 days because she wasn't chewing at it as much. I'm so grateful because we were really concerned we might need to take her into the vet for infection. Whatever might have been there, isn't anymore! - Alyssa
5. I like Tender Tissue spray. It always works painlessly and quickly for those yeasty/fungal issues in the skin folds. - Sandi
6. MUST HAVE---TENDER TISSUE Spray!!! I have loved this stuff postpartum. (I normally just use what they send me home from the hospital with to make that "area" as comfortable as possible post delivery--the WitchHazel pads and the steroid foam and Lidocaine Spray--but I didn't use any of that this time and healed MUCH faster!) - Christy
7. I used Tender Tissue Spray post delivery with my third child last weekend. The difference in pain management was incredible. Thank you thank you!!! - Candace
8. Our new baby had to be formula fed while I was in the hospital with a serious infection, and when I was able to nurse again, the back and forth from breast milk to formula was making her have very nasty bowel movements. It led to one of the worst diaper rashes I have ever seen. She wailed every time a wipe touched her hiney. It was heartbreaking. I had Tender Tissue Spray and decided to try it. After just a few sprays, at her next diaper change her bottom looked radically different. She had raw spots that were pink instead of beet red. Within just a couple of uses she was no longer crying through a diaper change. Within a couple of days it was completely healed. The oils and blends never cease to amaze me. We are so thankful for what you do. - Alex
9. Tender Tissue Spray is wonderful for pregnant women during the summer. It relieves itching and soothes instantly. Thanks for a wonderful product! - Naomi
10. My family has been using your oils for a few years now. I had my first child six weeks ago, and I wanted to rave about the Tender Tissue Spray! I used this spray for about two weeks before my daughter's birth, and I did not have a single tear. My labor was extremely quick as well, so the nurses and midwives were blown away at my not tearing. After the birth, I mixed the Tender Tissue Spray with warm water in my perineum squirt bottle. I believe this helped speed my recovery tremendously! I only used the hospital ice packs for one day, and then I did not need them anymore. Thanks so much! I will be using this again for the next baby. - Helen
11. Our baby daughter is in NICU. Two weeks ago she had her bowel reconnected, so now we have poopy diapers and some broken down red skin, likely yeasty!! I mixed the Tender Tissue spray with equal parts of zinc oxide, cleaned her bum with expressed breast milk, made sure it dried well and it cleared up amazingly!!!! Thank you for all of your help. - Tricia
12. I've been using Tender Tissue for years. It's a great blend. My recent purchase in March 2017 was even better! Thank you HEO for continuing to tweek and improve on the blends. Your commitment and service are unsupassed! - Marcy
Avoid contact with the eyes and other sensitive areas. Essential oils are both lipophilic and hydrophobic. Lipophilic means they are attracted to fat— like the membranes of your eyes and skin. They are also hydrophobic, meaning they do not like water. Flushing with water will only send the essential oil back to the eye's membranes. Applying a carrier oil will create another fat for the essential oil to be attracted to other than the membranes of the eyes or skin. Tisserand suggests: "With essential oils, fatty oil has been suggested as an appropriate first aid treatment, though the advantage of saline [eyewash] is that the eyes can be continually flushed, and this is less easy with fatty oil." We’ve not known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your health care provider.
