I'm using Thursay Plantation brand tea tree oil 100% to combat ance and usually apply twice a day on the affected area for about a week. The packaging on the bottle does not mention the recommended dosage.
I've read lately that long term application of t3 oil may have adverse consequences on the lymph.
any truth in that. or should I opt for t3 oil in gel form with lower concentration?

  • I used tea tree oil with very bad side effects. My skin looked and felt like I had a very bad sunburn. Use with caution.

  • Use tea tree sparingly, and if possible dilute with olive oil before using.A great website for acne is www.acne.org. You can print out their skin care directions - very helpful. Best wishesDOM
