This has been my go to cleanser since 2001. I always try other cleansers and always end up back to this one. If you have oily, acne prone, clogged skin that's hard to normalize this has been life saving for me and recommend you try it. If you have really dry or really sensitive skin and are scared to try it or if this doesn't work for you they have a much gentler one called Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Green Tea & Sunflower and I think you can only find it on amazon now. That one is just as effective without the slight stinging sensation or really strong tea tree smell. Both are good tea tree cleansers. I use the Green Tea & Sunflower one in the winter. I follow them up with the burt's bees blemish touch stick which is also tea tree and it works great. Desert Essence's tea tree stuff is really reliable. Other people have mentioned this was stripping or it left a film and I have never had those issues at all. Your skin does feel squeaky clean but not stripped and I feel no film what so ever. I used this for 10 years like any other face wash before I read the actual instructions on the back which says to rub your face with it for 60 seconds which feels like a bit too much for me so I probably do 30-40 seconds. Overall it's awesome and it's all natural and cruelty free too :)PS I forgot to mention if you already bought this and it's too strong you can dilute it 50/50 with water which is how I started out using it.

Using this as a scalp/hair treatment has worked wonders! I love the fact that it is as moisturizing on my dry scalp as other oils I've tried such as olive or coconut, but it doesn't leave a greasy residue. I usually use about 2 teaspoons of jojoba (I also add in a few drops of tea tree oil) and massage my scalp and apply to the ends of my hair before double shampooing it out with a shampoo massager brush to make sure its completely removed. (I usually leave it in as long as possible!) It takes a few uses to really start to see results, but from then on I just noticed continued improvement.

A natural remedy for many things. Toenail fungus, acne, scalp problems; mixed with peppermint, lavender, a touch of witch hazel and water for an air/ room spray. My favorite and not very well know is for yeast infections. Pour some on a light tampon and use 7 nights in a row. I've cured myself of yeast infections using this method of tea tree oil application. You can also ward them off by doing this as soon as you feel one coming on, and it doesn't destroy your intestinal flora like taking anti-biotics does, which I've found only brings on worse yeast infections down the road. It does not have a dropper top, however, so you have to carefully pour some out or dip a q-tip in it. Great product and quality.

I have been using this for 2 months (spring/summer) in 80 degree heat. It worked fine until a few weeks ago then suddenly stopped working. I haven't changed the food I eat or my unscented laundry detergent so there's no reason for it to have just stopped. Loved the smell of it too but alas, I had to resort to buying an aluminium student. The b.o was worse than not wearing any deodorant. I had to wash my pits up to 3 times a day with this.

My go-to toothpaste. If you're looking for a flouride-free, cruelty-free toothpaste, I highly recommend this one. I had to try several duds before stumbling upon this gem. I've repurchased several tubes and will continue to do so. I recommend it to anyone UNLESS you can't stand the feeling of mouthwash. I personally love it which is why I love this toothpaste. Not sure what it is about this stuff but the minty-ness is no joke and it cleans the mouth and teeth so well that you get the burning sensation that comes with some types of mouthwash, which could be a dealbreaker for some people. It's around $5 at my local health food store, although you can also find it online.Ingredients: Calcium Carbonate, Glycerin, Water (Aqua), Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Distillate, Carrageenan, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Powder, Phyllostachis Bambusoides Juice, Zinc Citrate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Calcium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Equisetum Arvense Leaf Extract (Horsetail), Sodium Bicarbonate, Sea Salt, Phytic Acid, Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf/Stem Powder
