After seeing how well it worked as a spot therapy, after putting the undiluted stuff on my face -__-'
My whole face got red tight, and the acne became aggravated.
So I decided to mix it 1 part TTO and 3 parts Aloe vera Gel.
Same thing.not as bad as the pure TTO, but there wasnt any acne clearing going on either.
So..I just use that mixture for those patches of skin that have multiple bumps on, and sort of as a
waterless maintentance cleanser for these patches.
But TTO is only good for spot therapy.
But mixed with aloe it might just work as a moisturizer if you decrease the amount. I might make a new batch of 1/5 TTO and 4/5 aloe.
I bought this moisturizer meant for acne and not just acne prone skin, its from this company
that might be canadian..might not, the company is called Derma-E, and the cream is called
Very Clear Problem skin moisturizer.and I Love it, its actually one of the best cosmetic creams Ive ever bought.It kinda makes your matte.It goes on creamy but once you spread it you feel a matting effect, plus moisture.

But I HAVE and currently mix tea trea oil and Emu oil, and it works great for me! I also spot treat with tea tree but my AM/PM moisturiser is Emu Oil with a few drops of tea tree in it and it definately does not break me out.
I should probably also note that I have skin that's on the dry side, Not sure how well this would work on oily skin.

Ive noticed that I can put pure tea tree on spots most of the time but cant after ive been in the sun...
Weird I know.
If it is aggravating your skin just dilute it with some water. I wouldnt use it as/or in a moisturizer.
I havnt used jojoba but I know its a carrier oil (meaning it help other essential oils penetrate the skin) you could try jojoba plus an essential oil mix for a moisturizer. Just research the benefits of different ones and pick some that sound suited to your skin. Use 2.5 percent standard dilution which is ten drops essential oil to 4 tsp carrier oil.
It looks like some others that have posted didnt have good results with jojoba so you could try a different carrier like sweet almond or coconut oil...
I use coconut and I like it. I use it at night as a moisturizer because pure oils make your face shiny. I like the idea above about mixing with aloe...im guessing it wouldnt leave your face shiny.

I used to use clindamycin and bp also but I don't anymore. My skin is now less dry/sensitive so it handles the TTO just fine.
I don't think it has ever broken me out.
But ya, everyone is different, so just see what is best for you!
