You should not apply tea tree oil directly to skin. It’s important to dilute the oil with a carrier oil, such as olive oil, coconut oil, rosehip seed oil or almond oil. For every 1 to 2 drops of tea tree oil, add 10-12 drops of a carrier oil. Before you use tea tree oil, do a patch test to make sure your skin doesn’t react to the tea tree oil. Also, be careful when using tea tree oil around the eye area. Exposure can cause redness and irritation.
