Post tea tree oil dilution

I ve heard that 100 percent teatree oil is too strong for many. what are some things you can dilute teatree oil with. water, other oils, like jojoba oil??? If u use 100% percent tee tree oil, will it likely dry out your skin and make it rough and dry feeling where u out it on??

I have found that overusing tea tree does dry out my skin leaving red marks so i have swtiched to a tea tree antiseptic lotion which contains a diluted but still pure amount,the lotion is a water based lotion and it sinks straight into your skin leaving no shine etc etc,its available from thursday plantation have a look at their webby.
When my spots are really bad i do put a few drops of 100% tea tree on my fingers and massage it into the area where the spots are,then follow with the antiseptic lotion to prevent the dryness.
Also i would reccomend that you try lavender oil,this does not dry the skin as much in my opinion and it really helps with redness and inflamation,i massage it into the area where i'm having trouble for a few minutes to ensure it gets deep down inside my skin and not just on the surface which is a waste of time
