Hi,

I just bought some tea tree oil yesterday from Trader Joes.

How do you guys use TTO?

The directions say to spot treat and use as directed...hmm

I dabbed a small amount on a small section of my cheek last night and it started to burn so I washed it off.

I read on here that people use it as a cleanser...how? It is way too strong.

You can use it as Spot Treatment with a cotton swab. I bought a facial wash with TTO, and it seems to be helping..

I have a question. I follow the intructions. And I apply it with a cotton. It didn't burn my face. That means I could use. It didn't felt bad.

I have a question. Does Tea Tree Oil get along with Sacilyc Acid?

Tea Tree Oil DOES WORK but it takes longer than usual to see results. You have to use it for about a month or 2 to see the actual results but it does work!!

I buy the ones from The Body Shop since they aren't 100% concentrated. I'm currently using it with my Murad Acne complex which has SA in them it just burns my skin a little when I apply the Tea Tree Oil

I have been using a good amount of TTO on my face. I usually mix it with a moisturizer and apply to face. It feels very refreshing. Btw, is TTO Non-comedogenic? Its an oil so I thought I would ask. -Jay
