    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:

    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.

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

      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!

      Great natural antibiotic

        • 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!

            I enjoyed the product for both my hair and skin; the only thing I didn't like was the smell. I would you this product at night never would I use it in the day time because the smell lingers.

              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.

                  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!
