I use tree tea oil when I have a yeast infection. I get such bad yeast infections that nothing over the counter works, so I take a 5 to 6 day regimen of diflucan. I use slightly diluted tea tree oil on toilet paper as a wipe "down there" to alleviate the itching that goes along with a yeast infection. It stings a bit but the relief from the itching is just amazing. Then I wash my hands thoroughly afterward, since the smell is a bit strong.
NOTE: My doctor told me to go easy on the tea tree oil, as too much can cause an allergic reaction in some people.

I have been using tea tree oil for at least 10 years now for many different things. When my kids catch a respiratory illness, it's the first thing I reach for. I use it in a vaporizer, especially at night. Colds usually lasts 2-3 days in our home. When my older child got a molluscum infection at the school swimming pool, tea tree oil helped him to get rid of it quite quickly, while the other kids struggled for months, ever years with pharmacy creams and medicated lotions. It is effective against dandruff - actually works much better, than dandruff shampoos.

I have just started to use Tea Tree Oil and I am loving the results. I have been battling severe acne for 5 years and have spent hundreds of dollars on treatment. It has been 3 days now and the size and redness of my pimples have decreased tremendously. I just put a few drops on a cotton ball and apply it all over my face. The scent is very strong and herbal and it stings a little but beauty is pain right? When trying this product just remember that nothing will clear severe acne in a week and just be patient, I am very happy with my results thus far.

Handy to have onhand for really, really specific spot treatment uses -- e.g. if an enormous zit has popped and I need to put SOMETHING antiseptic on it, but the skin around the zit is too sensitive for benzoyl peroxide and the zit still has too many zitty plans for antibiotic cream. Because it's an oil, it's less drying & frying than BP or alcohol, but it's not moisturizing per se. I use a Q-tip and put a bit on the worst area. It seems to help reduce inflammation and avoid infection, without wrecking all the nearby skin the way BP sometimes does.
I've also occasionally had good results using tea tree oil on areas with stubborn mildly congested pores - skintone bumps, not active acne. It seems to make those spots exfoliate from within the way salicylic acid is supposed to but sometimes doesn't.
DO NOT ingest or get anywhere near eyes or on lips. Seriously.

My roommate in college used this stuff, and I remember seeing the Desert Essence bottle but never being curious enough to ask about it. Cue me years later desperately searching MUA for tips on battling acne (going off bc is a BITCH) as naturally as possible and finding TTO. This stuff is amazing. Very strong-do NOT use it undiluted except MAYBE as a spot treatment-and make sure your skin can handle it that way FIRST. I personally love the smell, I feel like it indicates how strong it is and how well it is combating the acne on my skin :). I use it primarily as a spot treatment, sometimes a tiny tiny bit (a few drops) with water as toner. As a spot treatment it really works at drying spots overnight and preventing further dirt/bacteria from clogging up my pores. It also keeps me from messing with any spots knowing I've got a little TTO army already working on them! f I was smarter/more motivated/less broke, I would find out how to incorporate it as a regular part of my routine...but there are so many products to look at and yearn for :). I am very happy I purchased this and will definitely repurchase when I run out (though I use it pretty sparingly so I don't see that happening for awhile). A beauty must-have!

I've used tea tree oil for about five months as spot treatment on acne. I know it is doing something because of the strong smell and sometimes burning sensation on my skin if I have applied too much or to a sensitive area.
It is no miracle-product. If I apply overnight, in the morning the acne will still be there, no change.
I think it works like a sanitizer. Often I will put a drop or two on a cotton ball and clean my tweezers and whatever else might contain bacteria.
I bought a 30ml bottle that will probably last me forever. If I ever run out, I probably wouldn't repurchase.

Tea Tree oil.... I was so lucky to have discovered the wonders of this simple product when I was 18 or 19. This truly is my skin care "cure-all" of sorts. There are so many applications for this product but I really only use it regularly for 3 things.
Acne: I use it as a spot treatment. It's great to use overnight, but it's also ok to use before applying makeup (as long as you let it properly dry before applying). I will also occasionally add a drop to my facial moisturizer to hopefully prevent acne.
Razor Bumps: After shaving, I will add a couple drops to a dallop of body lotion or cream and apply to shaved areas.
Dandruff: Occasionally in the winter time I am prone to dandruff, and to keep it at bay I will add a few drops of the tea tree oil to my shampoo in my hand before lathering. I do this a few times a week. Mind you, it does hinder the shampoo from lathering properly, but the idea is to get the oil on your scalp and let it sit for a minute or two.

hg spot treatment, this thing literally works miracles sometimes. helps to keep my skin even and prevent acne from forming, controls current breakouts, maintains low oil production. it doesn't give me perfect skin because I still suffer from hormonal issues and hyperpigmentation but if I put this on a whitehead or anything broken before bed, it's either gone or nearly gone by morning. I'm not kidding. nothing else has ever had this effect on my skin.
only con would be that excessive use can dry me out during winter months. otherwise a perfect product. I use 100% tto, my 1oz bottle was $8 at walgreens and I use approx .5oz every six months. smell is strong but I honestly really like it! definitely recommend you give tto a try~

Wow I have been using tea tree oil only for a week and I can already see and feel results. My skin feels smoother, less oily and looks brighter. After washing my face at night w/ my clarisonic I tone with witch hazel and then I rub tea tree oil all over my face. Any breakouts I have the night before I wake up with them either completely gone or dramatically reduced. I've been struggling with my skin for over at least 5 years and have spent so much money on products, peels and dermatologist visits, but can say tea tree oil has proved the best results so far. Highly recommend to anyone with oily and break out prone skin :)

TTO has helped me with my face so much. Before I started to use this, my face had a lot of hyperpigmentation (around the tops of my cheeks) and now that's completely gone. My skin is no longer red around there even after I wash my face. I have acne-prone skin and I used to have a little bit of acne around my forehead, not including during that time of month. During that time of month, however, I get very large pimples on my cheeks and forehead. These pimples usually take about a week or two weeks to recover, but with TTO it takes as short as a few days. A lot of people say this is drying, but I apply TTO day and night in my moisturizer by mixing two drops into it and applying it all over my face. I don't rub in the mixture, I just lightly spread it around my face and let my face soak up the moisturizer. It's really helped my acne and my pimples and I'll never not use this stuff! The smell doesn't bother me and I bought the Trader Joe's TTO, but the packaging was atrocious because it didn't come with a bottle so I bought a dropper bottle on eBay and poured it in there for easier use.

It cleared up all my acne bumps and prevented new bumps within one week. My acne is caused mostly by stress. A combination of exercise and tea tree oil and Clean and Clear Persa gel has cleared my skin....... Here is what i do morning and night: 1. Wash face with soap making sure all make up is off. 2. Wet cotton pad, add two drops of TTO and clean my cheek, run the pad under hot water and add two more drops of TTO and clean the other cheek, rinse pad with water and add TTO and clean my forehead 3. Let the TTO set for 10 sec.. make sure it doesn't get in eye.. tilt your head so water runs off the side of your face instead of down to your eyes! 4. Splash your face with warm water several times. This will get rid of most of the TTO, but not all. 5. Towel dry your face and add moisture to areas under the eye and crease of your smile, these areas tend to stretch so they need moisture 6. Add Clean and Clear persa gel to areas with acne. At night add more in morning add less ... it dries clear so it can be worn under makeup. This regimen completely cleared my skin be consistent. Add less persa gel if skin is too dry. Apply moisturizer in the morning after cleansing with TTO if needed. Best of luck!!! <3

This is one of my HG skincare products now. My skin got so much better since using it, as i have acne for 11 years now... :-/
I use 100% pure tea tree oil (bio) with no additives. Just be careful, i once bought one that had mineral oil in it (wth???).
I use it pure directly on my blemishes. It decreases the redness and the pimples heal so much faster, without drying the skin too much. Some don't even reach the skin surface... It's antispetic and antibacterial, so it's perfect.
It has a really strong scent but it doesn't bother me anymore, and it's worth it.
I also use it as a toner (i mix 5 to 6 drops with mineral water) and it has decrease my oil production so so much.
I tried benzoyl peroxide and salycilic acid before, and they're not as effective, and they are most likely to dry out the skin, and are more expensive.
Great great product, can't live without it :)

I always have tea tree oil in stock - it is so useful for lots of things!
It's great used on the face, you can use it neat on spots and whiteheads. (i would not recommend using it neat on the entire face, just on certain imperfections). it is quite harsh so only use a small amount, especially for those whose skin gets irritated easily.
when you mix it with a carrier oil, like sweet almond or jojoba oil, it makes a great serum which can help clear up acne and spots. you can mix a few essential oils if you like! i used 2-3 drops of tea tree, lavender and chamomile in 3 tablespoons of grapeseed oil. i put it in a glass tincture bottle, which makes things so much easier when u use the dropper to get the oil out.
tea tree is antibacterial so its great for spots, not just on the face but over the body. i suffered with backne, (spots all over my back) which i still get now. rub this with a carrier oil and it helps clear them. REMEMBER, it is not a miracle. these things take time to work. be patient and you will notice the results.
ive also been using tea tree recently for a fungal nail infection (disgusting, sorry!). i'm applying it everyday. it also will last a long time!
tea tree is definately not the nicest scent, but it does smell very clean and fresh. it's cheap, lasts a long time and is great for a number of ailments including acne, fungal nail infections, treating cuts, and it's even good for your hair, including dandruff and headlice!
it's a must have!

In New Zealand, tea tree oil is often called manuka oil, The Maori people have used it for generations. It is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. I use it on my feet to stave off athlete's foot. I rub some over my feet before putting my socks or before I go to bed at night. My podiatrist now recommends it. It is also good on mosquito or insect bites and a few drops in the rinsing water of your laundry is a good disinfectant.
The smell is strong but it is a clean one and it dissipates quickly. I spilled half a bottle on my cream carpet - and no stains!! The smell lingered for a few days but it was much less strong and in fact, rather pleasant. A bottle lasts a long time. I would not be without one now.

tea tree oil is actually one of the key ingredients that I've found has to be present in at least two or three of my facial care products to help with my acne.
After years of going through acne medication, brands/over-the-counter face care, and tedious treatments that required a lot of time, I finally gave tea tree oil a shot.
And the results were great. Aside from benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, tea tree oil seems to work for my skin, getting rid of some very stubborn acne areas on my face where oil tended to be present.
You can pretty much find a lot of facial care products with tea tree oil from big chain stores like Walgreens and Walmart to local grocery stores like Trader Joe's and Ralph's. They're usually reasonably priced, and luckily come in containers that could last you a year.
It's also worth something to mention that this seems to be a genetically benefiting facial care product, because my niece also has acne trouble and uses it to clear up her skin.
So if you find tea tree oil works for you and you have a family member who is starting to have acne problems, you should definitely pass this on to them. It may just be the thing they need. ^ w ^

I bought a tea tree oil acne product, I used it for about a week and then went to the health food store and bought pure tea tree oil. The pure oil is A LOT stronger and definitely works better on acne. It dries it right up. Unless your skin is sensitive, buying the branded tea tree oil acne products aren't really worth it - the pure tea tree oil is much better and worth the money.

tea tree oil isnt obscure - and entirelyyyy different than Bio Oil. bio oil is simply a brand name of a blend of oils, none of which have the properties of tea tree. tea tree oil is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral - it used straight, blended, in facial cleansers, moisturizers, shampoos, toothpastes, and many medicinals. research your products!

I'd prefer bio oil.

This is a MIRACLE product!! It is very obscure!!
It is the ONLY product that cleared up my acne and my reddish acne scars that I had for years. My scars got lighter and my skin became smoother as well.
The only downfall is the smell! It is absolutely horrible, like a deep Pine Sol, so I only use it at night. I also have to wash my hands many times after I apply it to get the pungent smell off my hands. It is a pain when it spills all over the bottle and the counter when you pour it into a cup, so it takes a while to clean up the mess/smell after I apply it. ( Many people recommend using an eye dropper utensil.)
**: It also melted many plastic cups when I mixed the product with water (and it left a horrible smell in a ceramic dish that couldn't be washed away) so I have used paper Dixie cups instead with a cotton pad and it worked well.
I definitely saw results after using this product on my face. Try it and see the results for yourself... I hope it helps! :)

Absolutely amazing stuff. For the family it has fixed blemishes on the face, treats ingrown hairs, dandruff, athletes foot, eczema outbreaks, fungal infections, skin tags, helped reduce scarring from cuts and just pretty much a miracle worker.
