I love this! I find it does not prevent breakouts, but if I apply it to pimple, swelling is reduced immediately and completely after a night or two. This is an essential product!

I had a nasty break out recently; it was like someone hit me with the ugly stick. I remembered someone telling me about the wonders of Tea Tree Oil... so I decided to give it a try. I bought the "Beauty Secrets" brand from Sally's and used it as an astrigent all over my face before bedtime. On the down side it stinks like hell (reminds me of Vics Vapor Rub), and some may find it a bit pricey for the size (you'll pay $6 for something comparable to a bottle of nail polish)... but the stuff seems to be working. Within 48 hours I noticed my existing blemishes were drying up; they just sort of flaked off my skin. Additionally, it seemed to take care of the "up and coming" pimples that hadn't quite reached the surface yet. Oddly enough, it didn't seem to dry my skin out too much. Although everyone's skin is different, I would highly recommend giving this a try if you have problem skin, especially if you're looking for something on the natural side. ***UPDATE** Breakout seems to be under control… Blemishes have cleared up and no additional break outs at this time. Now, I can’t say the Tea Tree oil is what cleared up the break out, as I don’t normally have problem skin (this was a random break out). However, I was happy with how the Tea Tree Oil kept things “under control” during the break out period, and plan to keep this on hand for future use. Additionally, my husband had a small dark patch of skin on his face (the result of a dog bite)… As it healed, it healed darker than the surrounding skin tone- and it wasn’t getting any better. For the hell of it, I recommended he try using the Tea Tree oil every night…. It’s lightened up a good 75% within the last month, and is still getting lighter- no joke! At first it kind of “re-scabbed” if that makes sense… I told him NOT to touch it of course, and he allowed it to kind of flake off naturally... I’m pretty impressed with this stuff.

I just started with natural remedies for my acne and acne scars, and I am amazed at the wonders of tea tree oil. I have been using it in a homemade mask for only 4 days now (one application a day) and I have seen a great change in my appearance. I had 2 pretty good sized pimples at the time, several small ones, and a lot of blackheads/whiteheads on my cheeks and chin. Well, those clogged pores are greatly diminished in numbers and my pimples are just a flat mark. My family compliments me on how well my face is looking every day, they say this stuff works wonders too! Oh, and my acne scars are fading a bit as well. What I use in my mask is baking soda, grapefruit juice, and a few drops of tea tree oil. Enough to where the concoction still smells strong, and is like a paste. The recipe I found actually called for lemon juice, but I didn't have any, it still works very good. I leave it on for 15-20 minutes and rinse it off with cool water and kind of massage it while I am rinsing it off because the baking soda acts like an exfoliant..

Tea Tree Oil is a godsend, pure and simple. I use this everyday and it has never failed me.
In the morning and evenings I apply some witch hazel to a cotton bud and then 1 or two drops of tea tree and swipe it all over my face, it works wonders, and has the same general effect of Benzoyl Peroxide, but is more natural.
3 days a week I do a face mask consisting of 1 table spoon of honey and 3 drops of tea tree, and leave it on for 1 hour. If I have any stubborn spots I just dab a bit using a Qtip and the next morning its gone.
I genuinely believe this is the best product I have used (and I've used many). My pores have pretty much dissapeared, my skin tone is much more even, my complexion brighter, and for the first time my skin is spot free.
If your thinking of buying tea tree oil DO IT, dont think about it. Your skin will thank you.
Make sure you moisturise after using it though, it can be very drying.

I tried this in every possible form, and did nothing to clear up my acne, which I'm assuming was bacterial since it responded to benzoyl peroxide. I wished this worked for me.

I love using Tea Tree oil because of how versatile is, it is effective at drying up spots and also works as an antiseptic for inflamed blemishes.
Putting a few drops (2-4) into a regular face wash gives it additional benefits such as removing bacteria and contracting any harsh chemicals in the wash.
For spots, but a few drops into a Q-Tip and apply it directly to the spot and let dry, works better than any 4 Hour treatment I have ever tried.
I highly recommend you try Tea Tree Oil, if you don't believe me google how many cosmetic uses it has.
Incredibly versatile, would recommend.

I make my own toner in a spray bottle using witch hazel as the base, few drops of tea tree oil, a drop of rose oil and a drop of orange oil. Brightening and anti bacterial.

ive been using this product for about 2 weeks now and i love it. ive been trying a lot of products out lately for blemishes and i finally found something that works. Prior to using this i had 2 cystic pimples on my face that were going nowhere and 2 smaller pimples. I dab this on my pimples without diluting it because i dont really have sensitive skin and then i continue on with my normal skin routine. the smaller pimples literally disappeared over night and the larger cystic pimples went down in size considerably. I also love thats its natural. from now on i will always make sure i have one of these small bottles handy. (i used the walgreens brand and costs $10)

This is my go-to for breakouts. Since completing Accutane treatment 3 years ago, I no longer have acne, but my skin has become sensitive. So I do have the occassional skin irritations from various substances (eg, sunscreen active ingredients, etc.) Back when I had acne, I used tea tree oil on zits, so not too long ago, out of frustration with a particularly persistent small rash on my chin, I used tea tree oil, and it worked beautifully. All in all, I've used Tea Tree Oil for skin issues for since the 80s. Its antiseptic qualities make it a timeless, relevant staple in my medicine cabinet.

Never ever again! I have the MOST sensitive skin, I'm allergic to salycic acid for criss sakes - and any kind of oil, I don't care what kind it is, WILL break me out. This proves it. I bought some of this after reading up on how great it is for skin, how it helps break outs, blah blah blah. I'm having a rare for me crazy breakout - I had stopped wearing makeup completely, I use zest soap to wash my face and Vaseline to moisturize. My skin routine is so basic I wasn't sure what to do when I started breaking out. Oh let's put some oil on it! I'm sure that'll help! I even diluted it with water to a 9:1 ratio like your supposed to. I used a Q tip to spot treat, I was so hopeful that this 'special' tea tree oil would be an exception. Nope. I woke up with big CYSTIC painful acne. !!!!! Before it was bad but at least it was just little annoying ones. If you have sensitive skin that tends to react to the teensiest bit of oil - like 'coconut oil' or 'mineral oil' in cleansers and moisturizers - don't take the risk. If you have to wash your face after eating greasy food because it will make you breakout - just don't do it! For some people I understand it's amazing. Not for me, not for sensitive girls.

So, I first bought tea tree oil when I developed a keloid under my nose piercing. It cleared that keloid up overnight. Then, I decided to use the leftovers of the bottle I bought to treat acne. This thing is awesome. It brings blackheads to a white head overnight and makes shallow, red new forming pimples disappear overnight. After you first put it on, you may become very red. Do not fret. I put it on before bed and at first it is like "oh no my face looks burned" but by the time i wake up 5 hours later, the redness is gone and so are my pimples. BUY BUY BUY!!!

This is a miracle thing for my dry curly hair. I tend to flat iron my hair very often (I am yet to embrace my curls completely) which makes my hair dry. But I add essential oils like rosemary, tea tree, peppermint and clary sage to coconut oil for deep conditioning once or twice a week and it prevents further dryness and split ends. Literally, my hair condition has not detoriated after the almost regular use of flat iron. I mean flat iron is supposed to make my hair further dry but it hasnt happened due to the regular use of these oils. Also, if I wear my hair naturally, my hair condition improves with this. So I am a big fan of these essential oils. CAUTION: DO NOT USE MORE THAN 5-6 DROPS IN A SINGLE USE. LESS IS DEFINETELY MORE WITH THIS.

I have super oily acne prone skin and heard this would be good to clear up those horrible unwanted face quest. I tried it and it actually worked for me! It dried up the pimples I had on my face. I used it as a spot treatment. The only downside of TTO is the strong smell. Super strong, extremely strong! Beware! I used it at night, and couldn't sleep because of the strong smell, and then i used it in the morning and had people asking me "what is that smell"? But, for the results I got with TTO, I will continue to use as a part of my skin care routine. I highly suggest diluting with H2O.

I use this on the odd pimple that my trusty Effaclar AI doesn't clear. It's not 100% reliable, but it's a good alternative.
Overall, I love using "simpler" products, like extra virgin olive oil, and I dig the concept of finding natural solutions. However, this stuff stinks and my significant other always complain whenever I use this. And it's not quite as effective as my expensive Effaclar.
Worth a try though.

LOVE IT! I use it in many different ways, for my body, face and hair.
Sometimes I have dermatitis on my forehead and even on my scalp so I use 4-5 drops of it with my shampoo or my facial cleanser and it works wonders!
I also use it on blemishes, I put 1-2 drops of it on a cue tips and then directly on the spot. (not every day becuase it can be too drying)
Then I use it (4-5 drops) as a steamer with hot water.
Finally, I would say that you can use it for so many things that you HAVE to try it at least once.

I use diluted tea tree oil as a spot treatment and its absolutely amazing. I also use it in my homemade moisturizer, on insect bites, in my (also home made) deodorant, mixed with baking soda as an exfoliator and in many other things. Its magic in a bottle.

Tea tree oil is a GODSEND for my oily/combo acne-prone sensitive skin (yes, I know I have skin issues). But tea tree oil saves my skin time and time again. I purchased a 100% pure bottle of it for less than $10 USD. And it will last me years! I use tea tree oil in many forms. I love LUSH tea tree toner (except it has parabens, aargh!) so "tea tree water" is a gentle and wonderful toner option if you have sensitive, acne prone skin. When I'm having major breakouts (the oily/combo acne-prone side comes out) I use my own toner creation (comprised of 1 bottle of 100% natural witch hazel and 8-10 drops of pure tea tree oil). This is a slightly more abrasive version of the LUSH toner, so it can bring out some redness in the skin. But it is effective!
And finally-spot treatment. Sometimes tea tree in toner form just won't do the trick in the time you want! For those times, i apply the SMALLEST amount (one drop or less per pimple) to the affected area (please oh please do not apply directly if you've been "picking" or it will burn like heck).
The next day without fail my skin is all cleared up and radiant.
Trust me, I have tried it all in terms of skin care and treatments and this regimen is very successful.

Ok, everyone is different but if you are to use this product use it IN a face mask or a soap. If you buy tea tree oil in its potent form...do NOT apply direct. I have sensitive skin and I used the pure form of tea tree oil by itself on my skin for about 1.5 years and now I am allergic to it in ALL forms....I swell up and my face becomes beet red (which I NEVER get red) and my skin becomes hard and dry. I do still recommend it to people in a mask or soap form.

Well.. I just bought a bottle of this today. Only because I had* key word HAD a huuggee zit on my chin. Infected and everything. It kept coming back, and peroxide was not doing anything. So I remembered using this as a kid to help heal cuts and such and went to SDM to buy some. The brand I got is called Holista and its 100% TTO, and I believe it cost about $8 CAN. I can safely say I popped that nasty bugger and its all dried up now, only 2 hours later. It's flat, and no longer infected thanks to this stuff. I can honestly say I love the smell, its so healing and potent.
I heard TTO is also good for yeast infections, cuts, athletes foot, you name it. I just used it to disinfect my makeup sponges, and also recommended to my mom to boil some water with this to clear up her sinuses. Overall, I love TTO and will continue to use it.

I had a strange unfamiliar breakout on my forehead (which also is an unfamiliar spot for me to breakout). It wasn't going away or even coming to a head so I sought out tea tree oil, having heard of it's benefits as a spot treatment. I got a small bottle of the Tisserand brand at Ulta for 11 dollars. All the instructions warned me against apply it directly, told me to mix with almond oil, etc. Well I didn't feel like spending another 11 dollars on oil so I just went for it. Haha. I just used a Qtip to apply to oil directly to my pimples. It is definitely a "drying oil", which is what I needed. My boyfriend hated the smell (it lingered in my room) but I don't mind it at all. And, the best news is: it cleared that weird breakout up completely. I still got a few new pimples after, but after I hit em with some tea tree oil, they are vanquished hahaha. Unfortunately I ran out, and instead of buying another bottle of the tea tree oil, I decided to buy a cleanser with tea tree oil as an ingredient (Derma E's Very Clear Problem Skin Cleanser). My thought is that instead of using the oil as a spot treatment, hopefully I'll be preventing pimples with the cleanser. Will write review for the cleanser in a few weeks. :)
I'd recommend the tea tree oil itself, though. Even applying it directly to my breakout once a day didn't dry me out (I moisturized after)
