    How many use tea tree oil?

    What have you had success with it on? Cysts? Whiteheads? Clogged Pores? Blackheads?

    I recently got some, 100% Tea Tree Oil, and i have put in on some cysts i have left over, it looks like its drying them up pretty good. But im wondering about clogged pores? (those little flesh colored spots like below bottom lip that are visible when i press tongue to inside of mouth) They usually turn into cysts for me, and and like to know if anyone had any luck with ridding them with tea tree oil? Or anything for that matter actually. Thanks.

    Tea tree oil worked on my smaller pimples but did nothing for my cysts.

    try to get dr. d's tea tree oil products, these are very nice. I have never ever seen any tea tree oil products in stores, so yea you have to order them online. They have tea tree oil, tea tree oil soap, tea tree oil shampoo and body wash.

    I've noticed that it has helped with acne if I combine it with something else such as a sayllic acid body wash.

    I used it on my face and it turned my face extremely red and I was only using a little. I guess I just have sensitive skin.

    Talking Re: How many use tea tree oil?

    Greetings,
    Tea Tree OIl(melaleuca alternifolia) is a wonderful essential oil .As an aromatherapist I find I use it often as a person I use it all the time.I just have a few things I would like to shar3e with you all about Tea Tree OIl..
    1.Make surer the essential oil you buy is pure and unadulterated meaning that it's not mix with something(Alcohol,carrier oil).
    2 Tea tree oil is one of the essential oils you can put on you skin neat.If you have a reaction try putting a couple of drops of T.T. in a teaspoon of aloe vera or Witch hazel
    And then putting it on your skin...
    It also can be used on feet for fungus'
    Please be carful about buying essential oils online they may not be pure.
    One of the members erikn I do believe said the T.T. was not working .There is a way you can tell if the Essential oils are pure.Drop one drop of E.O. on a piece of paper if the is not oily ring around the drop there is no thing added.Somethings there may be a slight colring that may be the color of the E.O.Also make sure when buying E.O's make sure the label has the latin name ,the part of plant used and the lot number.Than you are quite sure you have a great oil...Hope this has helped all of you.

    Tea tree oil is a waste of time. Maybe its good for very minor skin conditions but for acne, it will NEVER get rid of it.
