Adding tea tree oil to daily moisturizer
Posted 17 February 2010 - 11:20 PM
Do you think it would be a good idea to just add a few drops of tea tree oil to my daily moisturizer (when it's in my hand) and apply that all over my face?
I would be using very little tea tree oil.
1) The only reason I ask is because I was wondering if tea tree oil can become pore-clogging if left on with your moisturizer / trapped in with your moisturizer?
2) Is this something I should do every day? Or would my body develop an allergy? Should I add it to my moisturizer every other day? Once a week?
Thanks guys! I am on the hunt for the most effective tea tree oil method.

Do this everyday and your face will be clear.. I promise. Stop using BP, SA, Acne.org products, or antibiotics because they either work for a couple of weeks and then stop working. BP and SA is terrible for the skin. It drys ur face up really bad!

I'll just say this; I've added tea tree oil to my Egg White facial masks for awhile now, and even with the TTO being "trapped" within the egg whites and added honey, it's never clogged my pores afterward or caused any trouble. Not, of course, unless I added more than one droplet. That stuff is pretty powerful, and sometimes makes my skin burn something awful.
However, if you have naturally sensitive skin, I'd be very wary. And like all natural products, the results won't be immediate I say, experiment, one slow step at a time, and remember that everyone's skin is (sadly) different, so this is a journey you'll have to take on your own.
Still, Tea Tree Oil gets rid of all the nasty stuff that clogs pores, so I can't imagine that just adding it to moisturizer will suddenly make it a pore-clogger. Twould be against it's nature, right? Unless something goes horrible with the chemical make-up of your moisturizer when it meets the TTO. I hear using Jojoba oil as a moisturizer and adding TTO to that is a pretty secure moisturizing/disinfecting solution, but I've yet to try this method.
