  • tea tree oil is great for a lot of things, from preventing lice (put about 2 drops in shampoo) to ear aches. ive never washed my face with it but i do know that there are lots of tea tree oil products especially designed for your face. you can google it

  • Tea tree oil is a excellent all-around medicinal and household essential oil. Always dilute essential oils in a carrier oil, such as sweet almond oil or vitamin E oil or in water or vinegar depending on the application. For skin, dilute it using water or a carrier oil; for cleaning, use vinegar.

  • I love tea tree oil. I get mine from Nature's Sunshine. You could mix it with water or just put a drop or two on a cotton ball and then put it on your face.
