How Do I Use 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil By Desert Essence?

I just bought 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil by Desert Essence. I hear tea tree oil is strong stuff. I have one major zit on my face, and I basically dabbed a little bit of the tea tree oil with a cotton stick and rubbed it on the zit.

Is this how I put it on? I don't know if I should mix a certain amount with water, because I hear its pretty harsh stuff. But, after I put on the oil, I did not feel a burning sensation at all.

Thanks all.

thats what i do. but i don't use a cotton ball. i use a q tip.

i think i remember some people having bad reactions to tea tree oil when used in large amounts. but i never experienced those.

and also. some people dilute the tea tree oil since its "too strong".

Yea, just on a q-tip, make sure you wash your face first, you only want to get the tea tree oil on the head of the pimple maybe around it too, it soaks in pretty quickly also which is good.

So yea, you're doing it right :) good luck! I hope the zit goes away fast.
