Default Help, tea tree

Hi, so my hedgie has really dry skin, i bought a tea tree spray that has tea tree, aloe vera and lavender oil in it, i sprayed a couple sprays on him a couple of weeks ago and cleaned his cage with it. Today i sprayed a couple more sprays on, then i searched the forum and saw all the stuff about it being toxic. Im absolutely heartbroken i feel like the worst person in the world for not checking before hand. I rinsed him off with warm water straight after spraying him today. He's acting normal and stuff but i've read all the stuff about organ failure and im so so worried. Im taking him to the vets first thing tomorrow morning, but is there anything they will be able to do? Im so upset

I don't know if there's anything the vet will do. Right now I would make sure there is none on him or his cage. Clean the cage with vinegar and water and rinse well. I would use some Avenno baby wash and give him another bath to make sure all of it is off of him. Keep a close eye on him for any changes.
