  • "Tea tree oil is amazing and has a lot of different healing properties this one in particular is really gentle and is great on the skin" in 6 reviews
  • "This tea tree oil is great for getting rid of keloid and scar tissue but you MUST dilute it!! I use 2 drops on a water-soaked cotton ball and it works great. The area feels a little warm after you apply it and it took me about 2 weeks of daily use to see results. Personally, I think it smells terrible but that's a small price to pay for the results you get. I found mine at whole foods but I know it's available online as well!" in 5 reviews

I swear by tea tree oil. I use it as aa spot treatment to help clear breakouts, and add it to my moisturizer to help clear my skin. I have sensitive skin and am not able to use many spot treatments, so I have resorted to using this instead and it is a miracle worker! It smells pretty strong, but is still pretty gentle on my skin. It really does work to clear pimples! I can not live without this.

This is a very good potent brand of tea tree oil. Not at all like the cheapy ones you can get at some stores. You get what you pay for, and the price still really isn't horrible. It smells and tingles just like I would expect tea tree oil to do. As with all good tea tree though be careful to dilute on most skin, and it will sting of you put on too much or on an owie. It's disinfecting it. But it numbs after a few seconds. I like to dampen a cotton round and put a couple drops of the oil and then apply it all over my face and neck.

Tea tree oil is great and it kills acne causing bacteria. Dab a little on a pimple and it will dry out. Any brand is fine make sure it is 100% tea tree. If you have sensitive skin try diluting it with water. Get a q-tip with water on it then dip that into the tee tree then apply. Works great 👍🏼

I love this! No different from any other tea tree oil, aside from the fact that it’s larger than most standard size oils, which comes in handy with how often I use this. Typically I’ll mix a small amount with rosehip oil as my daytime moisturizer. The tea tree is antibacterial, so it fights off present blemishes as well as hinders new blemishes from popping up

I love this product so much. I use it on practically everything including acne, ingrown hairs and nails, and even in my diffuser. It is 100% pure tea tree oil and very affordable.

I love tea tree oil! I have used it to prevent lice. (I work at a preschool.) I currently use it twice a day topically on my face to prevent zits. I rarely get white heads anymore!

I got this for my husband because he was complaining the skin was getting dry around his beard and he can tell a difference after using this product in two days!

I absolutely love this product. My skin recently decided to do a 180 on me, and I had acne all across my chin and jaw. I tried so many different products that did nothing to help. I came across an article that suggested tea tree oil to reduce acne, so I decided to try it. It was the best decision I made for my skin. It helps kill the bacteria that was causes acne, and it's even helping reduce the severity of discoloration from past acne scars. It's been an amazing product, especially now that the weather is warm and I'm sweating quite a bit more. The only thing is that I meticulous in making sure it stays far away from my dogs. The oil is deathly poisonous to dogs, so please take precaution if you have fur babies.

I was almost about to bite the bullet and buy birth control to treat my adult acne but this $6 bottle saved me! In about a week acne all around my face began to subside and since I've been using it off and on the past month I've noticed less new breakouts appearing. The smell is strong and it needs diluting, but it is so cheap and handy! I recommend this to those of you with stubborn or hormonal acne that has stopped responding to chemical exfoliants. Just remember that tea tree oil works by killing bacteria on your face that causes acne so it is best used as a preventative measure although it worked for me to treat existing acne. A++
