The anti-bacterial properties of tea tree oil, makes it great at killing bacteria and reducing the inflammation of acne when applied topically to the skin.

Generally, when applied topically, tea tree oil is quiet safe. However, some individual may be sensitive to it, for that reason it is best to always dilute tea tree oil with aloe vera gel before applying it to your face or any other sensitive area.

It is best to experiment with the strength of tea tree oil and aloe vera until you get the right combination for your skin.

Remember, tea tree oil is safe, in fact it is used in many ‘natural’ skin products such as:
