I'm on my 2nd or 3rd bottle of the Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oi. 25ml for under 20$ AUD. Heals and dries out pimples quickly. Im lucky enough not to suffer from many spots sometimes hormal/stress related. normally only 1 or 2 at a time, I apply with a cotton pad or bud and let it soak up, easy enough to do for a couple of days. fixed.

I generally have mild acne in my T-zone and I bought this to use as a spot treatment when my old one ran out. It was completely ineffective as a spot treatment! I would put it on up to 3 times a day with absolutely no results at all. Plus even one application would give me redness. Needless to say I moved back to my old spot treatment.
On the flip side it did seem to work for me as a toner. But it's quite expensive to use for that. I wont be purchasing this again.

Great as a point treatment for spots, just a couple of drops on a q-tip and dabbed on. I mainly just add one drop to my toner - it feels cool and refreshing and stops any emerging spots from getting bigger. Also provides temporary relief to mosquito bites. (I use Optima Australian tea tree oil - 100% essential oil.)

I already had this in my makeup purse for a fungus I had so I decided to try it for my acne. I've been putting it on my chin area acne right after I was my face (2 or 3 times a day for a week) and then about 10 minutes later put on my moisturizer. I think I've been using way too much (putting the oil stright on my skin rather than in a moisturizer) because my chin area and sooo rough, bumpby and dry that its not even funny. My chin feels like sandpaper. I stopped using this stuff a few days ago to let my skin recover but I think I will try again by putting just a drop or 2 in my moisturizer so that it doesn't over dry out my skin again.
On the plus side, this noticeably reduced the redness of the acne and acne scars as well as reduced redness of forming acne and helped those pimples to go down and not form a head so that way good.
Overall, its a good product but definitely use in moderation.. thats key.

I've been suffering from a horrible bout of breakouts for the past 3 weeks. Proactiv doesn't seem to be as effective so a friend of mine suggested adding one drop of tea tree oil to my facial moisturizer. Morning and night I add one drop of tea tree oil (I got mine from Walmart, brand is called Holista Tea Tree Oil 100% Pure, 50ml) to my moisturizer. What a difference after only 1 week! My skin is almost 100% clear, the blackheads and clogged pores are almost non-existent & the hyper pigmentation has faded considerably although this may be attributed to me switching to Neutrogena Healthy Skin Facial Lotion for my night cream. I still use the Proactiv Cleanser & Toner but once it runs out I'll switch to something non medicated I think. I did stop using the repairing lotion and now use the tea tree oil with my moisturizer in its place. Definitely recommend giving this a try if you suffer from breakouts.

Mine is from Target, the brand is Origin. First of all I need to say, that I have tried Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid treatments but nothing has worked better than tea tree oil. It is the best!! And it's so cool that it's all natural. I apply this 2-3 times a day on all of my spots (even post acne marks) and I experience a cooling (not stinging) sensation. The smell bothers most people but I absolutely love it. It reminds me of a Eucolyptus tree. Anyway, it takes some time to completely dry, about 15-20 minutes. After it dries there is no sign that you have anything on which is really good. Now, this is best when used on new arising pimples, it completely tones them down very quickly. I see a difference that same day! I know that this isn't supposed to help with post acne marks, but I have to say that for me it has helped somewhat. They all seem so much lighter. So overall, I would totally recommend this to anyone who suffers from acne or even small blemishes. Very great product!!!

I've been using this product for about 5 months and this stuff is amazing! At first I couldn't stand the smell but now the smell is actually very..good. I'm used to it now. It's very herbal and calming. :) So I use tea tree oil (I bought mine at Target) on my acne spots. I have very mild and small acne marks and tea tree oil hasn't removed them but it has definately lightened them buy a lot! My face is clearer. I do have an oily face, but the "oil" part of "tea tree oil" doesn't really affect me.

This is cheap and effective as`a pimple treatment so I will always have a bottle of this on me. The problem is that it may work a little bit too well as I have a bad habit of practically “nuking” the area around a pimple resulting in dry skin and flakes...so I would advise to be careful, patient and not over do it!

My husband had alopecia on his scalp, which means he was losing his hair is patches. We went to the derm and were told the only cure is to have steroid shots inserted into your scalp. OUCH! I knew that tea tree oil is good for fungus, and alopecia is a type of fungus, so we started rubbing it into the bald spots on his head. After a few weeks, his hair came back, and it looks just like normal again now!!

Warning: this might be a little gross. Okay. I'd battled a set of plantar warts on my right foot for over three years which drove me to distraction. I had tried EVERYTHING to get rid of them: salicylic acid, salicylic acid disks, apple cider vinegar, white vinegar, duct tape, Vicks Vaporub, black salve, bleach, several rounds of those freezing kits, and other treatments I'm sure I've forgotten. Out of desperation late this summer I told myself that if I didn't find some sort of way to get rid of them I would have to pony up the $ and get them frozen off by a derm, something I've heard is incredibly painful. Needless to say I was reluctant! As a last resort I started applying drops of straight tea tree oil (I used Jason Naturals) with q-tips as well as soaking my foot in white vinegar with about 10 drops of the tea tree oil in it several times a week. For about 2 weeks not much seemed to be happening, and then suddenly: the plantars were shrinking. After about a month, they were gone. GONE. Nearly painlessly and relatively cheaply. I was, and remain, amazed and delighted by my now regular feet, which I hadn't seen in over 3 years!
I can't tell you ladies how in love I am with tea tree oil. Not only did it get rid of the plantars, but I also use it on my face and my complexion has improved unbelievably as well. (I was getting cystic acne so bad this spring that even the acne.org regimen did nothing; going back to Dove soap and toning with tea tree oil has brought me back to a complexion so clear I get compliments on it.) I was mixing it with Dickinson's witch hazel for awhile but I got sick of the smell of it so now I merely wet a cotton round with water, apply 4-5 drops of tea tree oil, and use it as a toner whenever my skin is stressed. (If I have a blemish I will also dab tea tree oil on it neat and it helps to eradicate the zit more quickly.)
Tea tree oil has literally changed my life. I don't care much for the smell of it but I'm used to it by now. It's also a bit difficult to find around me but, again, worth it. If you've got plantars: try it. If your skin doesn't seem to be improving no matter what you do: try it. I only wish I had started using it years earlier!

i'm probably one of the few people that love the smell of tea tree oil. this is suppose to be a versatile oil, anti fungal, anti bacterial, anti septic. for some reason, this doesnt help my minor break outs, even if i use it everyday. i still stick by it though. sometimes i use it un diluted and sometimes i'll mix it in with my moisturizer (olay sensitive skin) overall, it's making my complexion appear more clear and less dull.
i put some on my nose and those little ugly blackheads seem less noticeable. i also mix it with some witch hazel and use it as a toner. when im doing my toe nails, i also put some around my nails when i'm digging out my in growns, yes gross, whatever.
** using which hazel before using tea tree oil actually works better at removing any left overs on my face, i've noticed a huge difference on the cotton pad using which hazel before the oil.

I've been using this as a spot treatment and it does a pretty good job. I finished the bottle... not sure if I'm blown away by it but when I apply it at least the pimple doesn return in the same spot again! It's pretty drying. I apply it with a qtip and allow it to sit for awhile and dry then apply another layer of moisturiser over the top. I once added a drop to my moisturiser but that didn't work out at all. My forhead was an oil slick in a hour or two. I will repurchase again because you can use it for a number of things such as ingrown hairs and cuts but this is not my hg spot treatment. I don't think it speeds up the process much, hate the drying and my skin goes red for awhile after but at least it fades. I do love that its completely natural. I will come back to this when I get my pimples under control. So I will keep looking for now. I've never found a spot treatment like others where they notice a dramatic difference or shrinkage by morning... do they really exsist?!

i got this because i read all these great reviews on here about how great it is and im a total sheep and if something has good reviews... ill hop up on the bandwagon and buy it. ive never really had any trouble with my skin *knock on wood* but when i get stressed i do get a few pimples every once in a while and now happens to be when im super stressed so i had 2 pimples on my jawline.. they werent the ones that are even poppable or treatable... they were like large pockets of pain under my skin.. there was no whitehead or anything just a big red bump that really hurt :( i decided that tea tree oil was the way to go.. well on the bright side when i woke up this morning it was half the size it was last nite and the redness was gone so i could cover the thing with makeup and u cant even see it... the down side... the tea tree oil smells HORRIBLE... i know people said it smelled bad but there was no description.. i wasnt prepared for this at all... i put it on and all i could smell was a combination of dirty hayride and death... thats the only way i can describe it.. im sorry!! it was like a cross between funky porta potty and a dirty hay ride (u know the ones that smell like horse bum) if they could make this stuff smell better id be happier but ill take the nasty smell for the results.. ill just plug my nose when i use it :)

Bought this at Wal-mart in Vitamin area. I have adult acne and have been applying this. Works at shrinking piumples and preventing them from returning. Very drying but I don’t care since pimples don’t keep coming back in the same area. Pimples use to go away and come right back in same area this product has stopped that. Also, good at getting rid of dark spots. Dry’s out top layer and makes it quicker to exfoliate area. Worth every $!!!

1/2 ounce purchased from MotherNature.com at $5.77 Brand: Tea Tree Therapy. My bottle came with a built in dropper (I've read others that didn't) perfect for dripping it onto a Q-Tip, which is how this should be applied. By the way ladies, PLEASE DONT BUY THE CHEAP WALMART BRAND. No good will come of it and you'll only be disappointed when you do not see any results. Tea Tree Oil is THEE way to spot treat pimples. Two days ago 5 pimples flared their ulgy heads along my chin line. Today, they are gone. This stuff is very drying which is why it is only used to spot treat with a Q-tip. You can apply it as much as you'd like. Actually, the more often you can apply it, the better. It does have a very strong odor but A.) you'll get used to it, expecially knowing the results it provides you'll learn to deal with it and B.) The odor fades within 30 minutes of applying it. Great great stuff ladies! Best part is, its completely natural!

So I have decided to give the results of straight tea tree oil on my face for about a week (maybe more if anything interesting happens). My skin was pretty clear, and then school started and BAM I broke out on my chin and cheeks (those are my only trouble spots with acne), and now my nose is a little more red as well. I don't have bad acne, but it is enough for me to be self-conscious of my skin (while other people don't notice, I guess I am just a perfectionist)
9-13-08: I bought this yesterday and used it overnight and my acne was a little smaller. The two big spots I had are not as raised up, but now instead of being one big bump, it now a couple little tiny ones (this was discovered with a magnifying mirror so in reality it's not too noticeable).
9-16-08: My skin is getting clearer, but I honestly don't know if this is the savior or the Queen Helen mint Julep Mask. Although the small blemishes I have on my cheek and chin are still somewhat visible (with sheer makeup on you can only tell they are there in natural lighting) but they have definitely diminished in sized, embarassment, redness, and that feeling where I should hide that part of my face. Awesome!
I will continue to update with the daily results

This is a general review of TTO. I gave a 4 for packaging because you've got to make sure it's in a dropper bottle because this stuff is strong. I think TTO gets a bad rap for being too strong for sensitive skinned people. I thought this for years, because every product I ever tried that contained TTO was so harsh for my extremely sensitive skin. Seriously if anyone is going to breakout or react negatively to a product ingredient it's me! But I've realised that it isn't the TTO it's the other ingredients that are often added to TTO products that give me bad reactions like dry, tight skin, redness, rashes of spots, etc. It's the salicylic acid, sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate, etc. that get added to TTO-containing products that are too harsh. Why can't formulators just trust that the antiseptic & anti-bacterial action of the TTO is enough!?
Another great use is in the bath. I used to get itching every month before my period - every few months it would become a full-blown yeast infection (thrush). I started putting 6 drops of TTO, + 4drops each of Ravensara, Lemon & Geranium into a spoonful of Bath Oil and pouring into the hot stream of water while filling the tub. This mix clears your sinuses, which is why I was doing it, but I realised the other day that since doing this every day I haven't had itching at all. I plan on doing this forever because I never want thrush ever again!
Another added benefit is in cleaning: you can add a drop or two to a moistened tissue and wipe on any surface that grows mildew quickly, for example the back of the sink. A thin layer keeps bacteria and fungus from growing. I buy a sensitive skin dishwashing liquid and add TTO to it so that nothing grows in my sponges and they never smell.

Really great as a spot treatment for pimples. Get a little on a Qtip and dab it on and it really helps dry up the acne. I also add some to my toner. Packaging is not great, but I transferred mine to a dropper bottle. Strangely, I'm getting used to the scent.

Incredible - can't believe I waited so long to try this for acne. On clean skin, I applied a small amount with a q-tip only to the pimples I was treating (one plain old stubborn pimple and one cyst type that I've been trying to get rid of for probably a month). Wow! The smaller one was dried up and gone overnight, the cyst was down considerably and after 3 nights of application, I can hardly feel the knot where it had been stubbornly sitting on my face. :-) I'm not sure how it would work if you have severe acne but I would definitely recommend for spot treatments. It does have a strong smell but not horrible, in my opinion. EDIT: This has been a godsend for me! I use it faithfully every night, applied with a cotton swab on any area that needs it and it works magic. My skin looks so clear - love it! I also put a couple of drops of this in with my once a week mask (I use Queen Helene's Mint Julep Mask). It doesn't smell that great but man does it help my skin! Edit Feb 09 This doesn't work as well now as it did at first...not sure why. I've started using Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque as a spot treatment at night and that works great.

I bought an ounce of tea tree oil (melaleuca alternifolia) from Garden of Wisdom. It has been THE ACNE TREATMENT for me. 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. Fantastic!
ETA on 8/4/2008: I hear that Manuka Tea Tree oil is less aromatic (in a good way!) and more effective on breakouts. I'm going to give it a try once I go through this bottle.
