      Before entering into the topic let me tell you what the tea tree oil is. It's not derived from the tea tree plant from which we get the tea to sip every morning. It is indeed derived from the leaves of the shrubs tea tree, found in Southwest Queensland and the north east coast of New South Wales, Australia.

Uses of Tea Tree Essential Oil

On skin:

 It's commonly thought that tea tree oil is only beneficial to oily skin people. Though it surely does magic on oily and combination skin types to heal acne, the most annoying thing for them. Dilute 2-3 drops of tea tree oil with one tsp of mineral or filtered water and apply to skin (face/body) once or twice a day with a cotton swab. You will get an acne free skin. It is suggested not to overuse it. The overuse may make your skin dry triggering your body to over produce its own oils and make your acne scene worse. After applying the mixture, using sunscreen lotion is a must. As tea tree oil can make your skin sensitive to UV rays.

There are other uses as well. It can be used as the makeup remover. These days all of you step out of the house with make up. But we all know the necessity of removing makeup. But it's a great issue for us how to remove it easily without rubbing the skin badly. Here comes the tea tree oil. Dilute 2-3 drops of oil with water and remove make up easily. You can also mix the same amount with any carrier oil, such as jojoba oil, almond oil, grapeseed oil.
