I have a love hate relationship with tea tree oil! I've been using it on and off for the last 2 years and sometimes it's amazing if I catch a pimple before it gets the chance to develop and the tea tree oil just zaps it into nothing overnight! Also, this combined with manuka honey is amazing for bringing out cyst type of spots and helps it to heal quicker. I also had these whiteheads that were under the skin clogged pores and this is the only thing that made it surface after having some of them sit on my chin for over a year so in that sense I love this! BUT the mistake I made was to use this as a toner all over my face thinking it could prevent new acne from forming but that's when it went downhill and made my skin irritated and red even though I was using it diluted and it just wasnt effective! So I guess it's my fault for using the wrong way..tea tree oil as a spot treatment and clogged pores YES! Tea tree oil as a toner and preventative method NO! P.s using this as part of my DIY hair mask really helps to detangle my super curly hair and makes it feel so smooth!

Oh. My. God. This is my one and only Holy Grail for skin - I cannot express my joy enough.
About half a year ago I started getting tons of whiteheads all over my forehead - it was caused by something I ate. Since then I could not get rid of them no matter what I tried.
My skin rarely reacts to any product either negatively or positively. I have a lot of acne, but it all comes from within and probably from my everyday usage of foundation to cover it up.
I have tried so many commercial products and none of them did any good or harm to my skin. It seems like it just doesn't care what I put on it.
Which is why I was so shocked that tea tree oil started clearing up my whiteheads from the very first day I applied it! I could not believe my eyes, but true enough, in a week I got rid of all of my whiteheads on my forehead. Absolutely incredible.
I put undiluted tea tree oil on my skin, which made it so effective immediately, but DO NOT do this to your skin unless you're sure it can handle the concentration. Now I use the oil with aloe vera and avocado oil that I use for moisturizing my face (and this combination works wonderfully, because the tea tree oil makes the avocado oil more watery and easier to spread on my face).
I have combination skin which tends to get very oily in the T-zone, but surprisingly both of the oils sink in fast and don't leave an oily residue.
Tea tree oil does not stop me from getting new acne, but it sure helps a lot in controlling and healing it. The smell might be a bit strong for some people, but I personally love the smell.
I'm not saying it will help everyone, but it's surely worth a try! Tea tree oil is certainly staying forever in my skin care routine, I'm so happy I gave it a chance.

Will not rebuy ever again. It just made my face oily then the zits instantly emerged. I hate this stuff

I bought an ounce of tea tree oil (melaleuca alternifolia) from Garden of Wisdom.
It has helped a little in fighting acne. I remember using it in junior high but could never get past the smell. Many years later, I realize the beauty of this oil: so simple, CHEAP, and it works! I plan on using this instead of expensive acne treatments (I think I've tried them all...good grief). It's tried and true. I'm beginning to appreciate the simplicity in skin care through natural essential oils and the like.

I absolutely love this! It is so easy to apply. I dab it on my pimples and it cools them down immediately. The swelling goes away and it reduces redness. Perfect! It dries noticable white heads out in 3 mins! I don't think the smell is too bad. However, I don't feel like it does anything to my blackheads. I didn't really expect that, since it's antibacterial, so it just cools down the infection, and doesn't remove the whole puss.

Ive purchased Tea Tree oil for many years and also my mum has. You need to make sure its 100% teatree oil so you get the full strength.
Things i use it for:
*Spots- As soon as i see or feel one coming out i dab abit on.
*Bruises- If i knock myself and rub this on pretty much straight away it prevents the bruise an reduces the swelling.
*Coldsores- My mum dabs it on coldsores.
*Cuts- Yes it stings on cuts but is great for quick healing.
*In the bath- Clears yours airways, relaxes your body too.
Is great for alot of things, cheap and you can get this pretty much anywhere. x

Anybody suffering the odd break out I strongly recommend this! The only downside is the smell but apply it at night and your fine:)

I started using this product to treat my hormonal acne which got out of control about 4 months ago. So I've been using it for 3 months now.
After suffering for over 10 years with acne I decided to go the natural route, which included cleaning up my diet, taking a multivitamin (hair skin and nails), omega 3 and using essential oils + other all natural products.
I've been on this regime for 3 months so I feel like I'm in a good position to review it since it is a slow working product.
The type of acne I was getting were those under the skin ones that just get inflamed and hurt and leave a fugly scar.
I did an allergy test before using it and I had no reactions so I used it at 100 percent concentration by dabbing a q-tip on my spots. I did this for about a week without noticing it drying it up or reducing inflammation so I started using it on my entire cheek and jawline with a ball of cotton wool as a preventative measure.
I used it after cleansing + toning. It has a very strong scent (which I like, it opens up my sinuses) it tingles for a bit when u put it on and then it dissapears into the skin so it doesn't leave me feeling oily nor does it dry out my skin. I follow by moisturising with aloe vera gel (love!)
Anyway it never reduced my pimples, it didn't stop any pimples from forming either. It kind of cleaned my skin though cos I would find "dirt" on the cotton ball even after cleansing + toning.
The packaging came with a dropper so it was easy to get out enuf without any wastage.
I don't feel like it has done anything to help my skin but it hasn't caused any damage either so I guess I would repurchase because I am not using any other treatments on my pimples.

This has many uses, but I use this for acne. It dries out the blemishes, but sometimes makes my skin flaky. If you apply too much, it WILL burn your skin and make it super red. I like to add this to witch hazel to tone my face. I don't like to use this as my only spot treatment as I think my skin gets used to it. The best thing is that it's all natural.
