I'm just wondering how to use Tea Tree oil as a facial cleanser. Do you dilute the oil with water or is it apply directly to the face. Since this is an oil known for its beneficial properties and numerous usefullness I've decided I'm going to try some. I'd appreciate any feedback please

Hmm I've heard of people mixing a few drops with their regular cleanser and using it like that, or I think you can use it like a toner diluted with water on a cotton ball.

you could even try cleansers, toners etc that already have tea tree oil incurporated into their formula...

tea tree oil is great on single pimples to dry them out a bit. so is lavender oil.

thanks brewgrl for the recipe !
tea tree oil is great as a spot treatment, but mixed with other products i'm sure it's also good. i'll try that.

Awesome recipe I will give it a try. Oh! could I use warm water instead of microwaving the towel?

it's the steam that helps... so you could use really hot water.

anytime!!!
you should actually thank my bestest friend... she's a former aesthetician, and she' my go-to girl.
fyi- she likes to put a drop of bergamot in the toner just for scent... it blends with the tea tree oil which can be very medicinal in scent. i don't mind the scent in the toner so it doesnt bother me... but that's why i use lemon, or grapefruit or orange or neroli for my steam, i like to breathe it in, clear the head and the skin at the same time... plus citrus oils have their own added benefits for the skin.
so any info that i know about essential oils, i got from her!
