Tea tree oil is effective in promoting healthy skin by soothing and healing a wide range of skin issues. Use tea tree oil with a few precautions:

  • You should not apply tea tree oil directly to skin. It’s important to dilute the oil with a carrier oil, such as olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil.

  • For every 1 to 2 drops of tea tree oil, add 12 drops of a carrier oil.

  • Also, be careful when using tea tree oil around the eye area. Exposure can cause redness and irritation.

  • Before you use tea tree oil, do a patch test to make sure your skin doesn’t react to the tea tree oil.”
