This product when applied with a cotton swab to a blemish, definitely soothes the inflammation and takes away the redness. I have been using it as a toner: I take a cotton square, add a drop or two of this product and then some water to the square and use it all over my face. I can't say that this product is an effective emergency pimple treatment, but it definitely seems to stave off the pimples to begin with! Just make sure you moisturize after using as a toner. I don't mind the smell, I actually kind of like it =)

I never actually got to put this on my face. As soon as I opened the bottle, the strong smell gave me a massive asthma attack. Thinking it was a fluke, I tried again the next day and, once again, I couldn't breathe. Perhaps it was only a rare allergic reaction in my case, but people with breathing problems should be careful using this.

    Comments about Desert Essence Organic Tea Tree Oil, .5 fl oz:

    I have suffered with acne since the age of 12. I am now 33. I am on a couple of prescribed medications to help my skin, so in conjunction with those, I have found that this product effectively keeps my breakouts at bay. It really helps with redness and swelling. It also has a cooling effect on your skin that feels great- especially on hot and humid days. The smell is pretty strong, but it's more of a herbal/medicinal smell, and it does go away within 10 minutes or so. I dampen a cotton ball with cold water and add a drop or two of oil and use it as a toner. I do this twice a day, sometimes three. Also, a bottle of this stuff lasts a good while for me, so the price for the amount of product you receive is worth it in my opinion. I just wish the screw on cap would be replaced with an eye dropper.

    Comments about Desert Essence Organic Tea Tree Oil, .5 fl oz:

    It works for what I want it to do-treat my acne gently and minimize the pore. I break outs around my period even though I am over 30 y/o. I like tea tree in general because it seems to agree with my skin.I am using tea tree moisturizer everyday and use this around the time when I tend to break out.It does sting so use sparingly.I use cotton tips dipped in water and dabbed it around the affected area. It minimize the pore quite instantly but I wouldn't say permanently.

      I broke out like nobodies business with acne this Spring, after 3 days of 2 times a day use I see a significant improvement and nothing new has popped up. I have real sensitive skin and this hasnt overdried it or damaged it. Yes, it does smell but it fades in about 5-10 minutes. I highly recommend this product!

        • Gum infection

        Comments about Desert Essence Organic Tea Tree Oil, .5 fl oz:

        I heard about tea tree oil is good for infected gum. After several visits to the dentists... the results were not good, so I started to play doctor myself. ( it beats going back to the dentist chair)
        I dip the dental floss into the oil and apply the oil to the infected area by gently flossing and leave very small amount of oil on the gum. I must say it works much better than anything the dentists gave me. It stings a little but it will go away. Don't apply too much oil. I don't mind the smell at all. I'm glad I have found this product. This natural antibiotic oil really helps a lot!
        P.S. do it every other day to give the gum a break.

          Comments about Desert Essence Organic Tea Tree Oil, .5 fl oz:

          Someone told me years ago that this had worked for them so I got it for my son who has been suffering with acne for a couple of years now. After just a couple of applications you can actually see the difference, this is the first product that he's been excited about and he's tried them all. It's nice to see a smile on his face!

              When I came back from international trip, my acne flared up and would not stop. None of my medications worked. I read about using 3 drops of this tea tree oil with Fruit of the Earth aloe vera gel before going to bed. I'm not kidding you, this has worked like a miracle. Please try it. The smell doesn't bother me much, similar to eucalyptus oil. My acne is dying down.
