I have been using oriflame tea tree oil for sometime. However I am not sure how to use it since it is not showing any effect. Should I apply a moisturiser first and then apply it or should i directly apply it. Please tell me.

  3. Hi Vartika,

    You can dab Tea Tree Oil on acne, cuts, burns and fungal infection. You can add 2-3 drops with shampoo to combat head lice, dandruff, and dry scalp. Tea Tree has anti-viral property. As it is concentrated, avoid excessive use.

  4. If its 100%pure tea tree oil u are using, you ought to dilute it with another oil as it is too strong to be used directly. if its an already diluted oil like body shop or oriflame ( am not sure abt oriflame, pls read its ingredients), you can use it directly on the spot. You can also apply a little on a cotton pad, spray a little rose water on it and dab it on your pimples.

  5. 100% tea tree oil is potent. If you have dry or sensitive skin, test it first. Even diluted with water, it immediately dries up pimples but also ur skin so much it leaves scars.
