Tea Tree Oil Toner: To make an all natural tea tree oil toner, just mix about 10 drops of tea tree oil with 1/2 cup of distilled water. Store the toner in a glass bottle and apply using a cotton round or cotton ball. If the toner is too strong you can decrease it to 5 drops of tea tree oil per 1/2 cup of water.
Adding tea tree oil to lotions and cleansers: If you have a favorite lotion or cleanser but you're looking for something more effective in treating and preventing acne, simply add a few drops (2-3 should be plenty) to a bottle of your favorite moisturizer or cleanser. Be sure to avoid the eye area when applying the product as it can irritate eyes.
Tea Tree Oil for Spot Treatment: Using tea tree oil as a spot treatment can be extremely effective in treating problem areas. Since tea tree oil is very strong, you are going to want to dilute it with a bit of water. Mix 1 tablespoon of distilled water with 1-2 drops of tea tree oil and apply it to your pimple using a clean Q-tip. Leave it on your face overnight and you should see an improvement by the morning. The pimple may not be completely gone, but you should notice a decrease in size and severity of the pimple.
Always opt for organic tea tree oil whenever possible. Since tea tree oil is so highly concentrated, a small bottle should last you quite some time. Typically it comes in a dropper bottle, but you may find it in diluted forms as well.
