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.

Rated 4 for the smell. Not great! Other than that, I like it. It seems to help clear my skin of blemishes almost instantly. Will buy again.

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

I am so happy with this stuff - it is like three products in one. I've used it on an allergic rash I got from eating a certain food. It IMMEDIATELY stopped the itching as soon as I applied it (way faster than hydrocortisone), it brought down the redness of the rash within minutes (better than any salicylic or peroxide based product), and it kept the skin from getting infected so that it could heal quickly (equal to or better than any antibiotic ointment). The natural scent IS very strong, and it was just on the borderline for me in fearing it might kick up an asthma attack - I definitely only used this in a well ventilated area! Within 30 minutes the smell was mostly gone from my skin; it does not smell pretty. I'm going to start using this stuff for blemishes when I get them too!

This is an awesome product! Strong scent but not too unpleasant considering the results. I had a toenail fungus for well over a year that nothing helped including 2 rounds of Lamisil. I applied this oil 2-5 times a week for a month with noticeable results. My nail is now almost completely clear. I'm thrilled to have found such an inexpensive and natural product to use.

This is a great product; I use it on cuts and bug bites, etc. It is not just a skin care product, mix 1 tsp with 1 cup of water in a spray bottle and it makes a great disinfectant spray for kitchens bathrooms etc. This stuff is good for everything.

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

I've been using this stuff for about 2 years now. Yes, the smell is strong, but I love that it is all natural! I used it on pimples, small cuts, inches, and anything else that I can think of. I dip a Q-tip in and dab it on pimples. If they are big, or I pop them, I just dab it full strength, and it heals FAST! The redness is gone in about 5 minutes, and most of the pimples I use it on are gone!! I havent tried to dilute it, because it's so expensive, but the bottles go QUICK!!

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

Initially, I was using this as a diluted toner, but now I prefer to only spot treat b/c I'm only having problems on my forehead. I'm not really sure if it's actually doing anything to get rid of the pimples themselves, but once one ruptures, it does a fantastic job of healing them. It definitely speeds up the healing process. In the past, when any of my pimples popped, it would take a good week or so to heal, but this shortened the healing time to only a couple of days.

By

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

Cured my daughter's ringworm in 5 days flat, when applied twice a day, undiluted, with a Q-tip. Also cured my husband's toenail fungus in six months, after him having rotten toenails for ten years. I myself don't mind the smell; potent, yes, but herbal, and I can live with it no problem. (Think strong eucalyptus.)
Only caveat: if you have reactive skin, do not apply it to the face full strength right off the bat. My daughter has occasional eczema outbreaks, and when I dabbed a bit on a new patch of ringworm starting on her cheek, her face broke out in an eczemic rash that took over a week to cool down. But overall for something so simple, it's amazingly effective, and inexpensive, too.

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

I use this as a toner, and it works great on my acne (what acne? I don't have any anymore!) BUT YOU HAVE TO DILUTE IT! I soak a cotton pad with water, then use just one drop of tea tree oil. That's how strong it is. Even that small amount stings (remember Sea Breeze? Feels like that), so please experiment to find the concentration that works for you.
It does smell awful, but when you use so little of it, the smell disappears after a few minutes, especially if you use a scented moisturizer afterward.
I was a loyal user of Proactiv, but now I have found a regimen that works even better, and it's less toxic and cheaper!
My regimen:
Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil Desert Essence Organic Tea Tree Oil
Desert Essence Jojoba Oil (use as moisturizer)
Avalon Organics Daily Moisturizer, Therapeutic Lavender (use this after the jojoba oil, smells wonderful).
And voila! Perfectly clear, soft, luminous skin!

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

The people having trouble with flaking and dryness on their face aren't diluting it enough. Use 1-2 drops on a cotton ball with water on top. It not got rid of my acne, and I no longer have to use a face wash at all. My husband has had to have surgery on his hand twice for warts that were plaguing him for years. I used this product and they went away permanently.
