  • Yes. But it will be messy. A better choice would be grapefruit seed extract. Take 3 capsules daily and buy the liquid GSE mix 20 drops for every 1 oz of distilled water and apply with a q-tip 3 times daily.

  • Thrivingmom - I was sort of worried about the mess! lol It is for my 5, almost 6, year old. So she wouldn't be able to take the capsules. Is it safe for kids (is it just straight GSE?). We have been using Tea tree oil religiously and it has made a dent in it but I really think I need something more.
