I use witch hazel on my face after I wash, just for an extra-cleaning and to prevent breakouts. I've heard wonderful things about tea tree oil .. do you think it would be a good idea to add a few drops of tea tree to the witch hazel? or would it cause a wierd reaction?

I use to use witch hazel as a toner. But I dilated it 50/50 with water. Tea tree oil is suppose to have natural anti-bacterial properties. If you mix witch hazel and tea tree oil together, wouldn't you be diluting the tea tree oil too much? Why not apply tea tree oil, full strength, after you have used the witch hazel.

Tea treee oil is a staple that I keep on hand for many uses. It's quite strong, so be careful. It's a natural disinfectant who's scent is offensive to some. Start with a very minute amount and do a skin test before total usuage.

Tea tree oil never worked on me.. and for those who use witch hazel...I 've read about the product. and it contains alot of alcohol.. I thought alcohol is No NO on facial.. What do you think?

I think you should be careful with the tea tree oil, it's really strong. I suggest you dilute it with the witch hazel. I burnt my skin with tea tree oil, it wasn't pleasant!

I mix thayer's rose water toner (which has witch hazel too) and tea tree oil. I works great, but don't put too much tea tree oil. It makes it look murky and smells weird. But if you find the right ratio, it smells very pleasant and your skin feels so smooth right afterwards! hth
