This is grate for zit zapping I put a q tip in my thayers rose water witch hazel and then dip it in the tea tree oil The MOST important thing is to run the q tip under the water because you NEVER put this directly on the skin without watering it down, tea tree oil is VERY strong and will inflame your pimple and make it worse if you don't do that. I hold the q tip under the water for 10 seconds and then apply it to the pimple after doing this about 1-3 times a day the pimple dies within 4 days. Keep in mind it may take longer or shorter for it work for you and I worked my way up to treating my pimples 1-3 times day. When I first tried this I did once a day at night before bed. My pimple was gone by the end of the week! The only thing I don't like about this is the bottle I really wish it had a dropper under the cap! then it would be even better and essayer to use

i think this is truly the cure for clogged pores. it works like magic apply it at least 5 times a day on the pimple , it smells very stung yet refreshing . i personally have very , and i mean very sensitive skin , it doesn't irritate my skin but i do recommend patch testing on your fore arm 24 hours prior to use of TTO, thats what it said on the packaging .

Tea tree oil is my favorite form of spot treatment. It always dries up the spot within a dew days and I can feel it working. I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, so this is a great alternative. This may not be for some people because of the minty/woody smell, but I honestly don't think it's bad. You can also add a few drops to your face steamer and get a really deep clean.

I had a terrible skin reaction to SK II essence recently and to stop the itching, I dipped a cotton bud into the bottle and gently dab it in. This is the first thing I would dab on whenever I get skin rashes or allegies or pimples ie after cleansing the area. It dries up the affected fast and just a little dab on the spot will do it. And to calm down the redness a little Queen Helene mint mask does the trick applied at night and the next morning, I will wash it off and the red spot is almost gone. You will see some skin peeling on the applied area however and the scars will gradually fade away, thank goodness. You can read more reviews on iherb.com and if you feel you wanna try, you get $10 discount if you order more than US$40. Discount code is: AWE322

SO...TEA TREE OIL!!!! Who would've thunk it? I had only ever used prescription creams for my acne, and having pretty oily skin, and this stuff being an oil and all, I was kinda freakin out about the whole aspect of putting it on my face. ANYHOO... this stuff is the real deal! Some people suggest using it all over your face, however I just use my prescription acne creams all over my face, and then use this tea tree oil as a spot treatment for my really bad/cystic acne spots. All in all, two major thumbs up! You will get results über fast, and (as an added bonus) the teensy tiny bottle will last you months!

I have been using this as a toner by wetting a cotton ball and adding one drop of tea tree oil and one or two drops of jojoba oil. I used to break out constantly on my nose but since I started using this I don't break out as much and when I do the pimples heal faster. A few days ago I got what I think was a giant pimple between my toes, I just put on a drop of tea tree and it was gone by morning. I don't like this as a spot treatment on my face though, It dries out my skin too much, even diluted. I love honey as a spot treatment because it doesn't dry out my skin but I wish it would work faster so I'm going to try mixing in tea tree. I'll add an update on that soon.
I stopped using this on my face, it was just too drying for me.

What an amazing natural product. I have been using the desert essence TTO for my dry itchy scalp this winter and it has worked wonders. I add a few drops to my favorite conditioner and let it sit for about 5 mins then rinse really well. Doing this has cured the itchiness and has completely calmed my scalp and it doesn't leave my hair greasy at all. Leaves my hair shiny and bouncy too.

Tea Tree Oil is great for treating acne/blemishes. I am guilty of being a skin picker at times - and this is the best thing i've ever used. I literally will apply with a cotton ball ever hour and a cut/mark will be reduced in redness/inflamation/overall by 80% the next day. it's honestly amazing. i've tried everything else (manuka honey, green tea, silver gel, etc) but this is the best. apply ever hour on a cut with zinc or neosporin to cover in between applications. you will be amazed.
i know people complained about the smell -- it is strong but i think it smells good. i like how it makes my bathroom smell i dont mind it at all.

Tea tree oil is like magic. I've tried a few brands and had good luck with all of them, but Desert Essence is one of them and it's good stuff. It disinfects cuts, dries up blemishes, and is great for treating my stubborn tragus piercing that just does not want to heal - if it swells up, tea tree oil applied on a q-tip is the only thing that dries out the annoying little red bump. I also wipe down my brow tweezers and nail scissors with it. My friend uses it in her hair to tame flyaways (haven't done that yet). Seriously, if I could only keep five health and beauty products, this would be in the bag. Some people complain about the smell, which is admittedly strong, but I don't mind it. I usually apply the stuff at night so I don't smell like it all day, but it really doesn't bother me. It's potent, but refreshing.

This is the best tea tree oil you can buy.
Seriously, it makes all the difference in your skin or your health.
I initially started to use tea tree oil as a spot treatment for my pimples, and then realized that I could use it for dandruff and other health issues.
It smells AMAZING. It smells fresh, and clean and doesn't feel gross going on your skin. I bought it for 16$CAN, and didn't realize that the quality you get with Desert Essence is beyond amazing.
I ran out, couldn't find any, and bought a random drugstore brand. It's beyond gross and for the first time I realize why people hate the smell of some tea tree oil. It's insanely gross.
I can't wait to get my hands on this again!
