I just bought a pretty large container of tea tree oil primarily to use for oily skin and some acne.
I am wondering…
What is your method for using tea tree oil for oily skin/acne?
What else do you guys use tea tree oil for? I have a lot so I’m curious to see what else I can use it for!

I use it for acne. I put witch hazel on a cotton ball, add a couple drops of pure tea tree oil and rub on.

I literally use it for everything haha!
I have bad acne (on my back, chest, neck etc) and I use tea tree oil every single night and it keeps my skin perfectly clear. I have very dry skin though and tea tree oil is the only thing I can use for acne that doesn’t make my skin worse. It does definitely dry you out, so I’ve had to start using aloe and then moisturizer, but if you have oily skin it shouldn’t be a problem for you!
Make sure you dilute it A LOT. I fill a cup with hot water and add 4 drops of the tea tree oil to it and then soak a couple cotton pads in it. I squeeze out the water and then use them on my back, chest, neck, and face. You also have to let it air dry COMPLETELY before doing anything else. They warned me that I shouldn’t put clothes on until it’s completely dry.
I also add a few drops (8-10) in my bath water if I’m going to take a bath so that my skin can soak in it every once in a while
You can use it for any type of foot fungus although I’ve never tried it. Add a few drops to a spray bottle full of water, shake it up and spray it on your feet or even inside your shoes. But again, you need to make sure your feet are completely dry before putting any shoes or socks on and if you spray it inside of shoes make sure they dry for a couple days before putting them on

I used to mix a few drops into my day cream when I had more blemishes. Since my skin has improved a lot and I seem to have found good products for problematicaging skin, I don’t use it on my face so much.
Now I use it like medicine – for bug bites, facial steam bath, oil lamp (when there’s flu in the house) and even for dandruff. In summertime I mix a small bottle of jojoba oil with some tea tree oil and it’s the best treatment for mosquito bites.

I dab it on any spots I have on my face, neck and shoulders, I also use it to get sticky residue off things. 😛
