Wishlist: Tea Tree Oil

I've heard such good things about tea tree oil and other essential oils, like lavender, peppermint, and jojoba. Why did I choose tea tree? Well, it's known to combat acne, of course! A bottle of tea tree oil can be quite expensive, but I think it's worth the investment because it will last a long time :) 

I read somewhere (I don't remember where...) that adding two drops of tea tree oil to your moisturizer will help with the acne. One consumer said all of her acne cleared up! I've had my acne for a little over a year now, and I am tired of it. I've tried a lot of things: facial masks, spot treatments, cleansing in the morning (I used to just cleanse at night), washing my pillowcases more, and touching my face less. It's not working! I mean, these strategies help keep my acne at bay, but it's not making it go away :(

I have one more itty-bitty final tomorrow and then I'm off to the train station! I can't wait to be home! :) The next few days will be pretty busy. I want to hang out with Jon as much as I can before he leaves for Oklahoma on Thursday :( Thursday, aka our 11th month anniversary. Oh, gosh... where has time gone?!

Here are some tea tree oil choices to try from Nutrasource.com...



  1. I used to use tea trea oil all the time for my acne when I was younger! Actually, I think it's the exact same bottle as the third one up there... I finally stopped using it last year, because the smell is REALLY strong. I could smell it for hours after I used it. It worked really well, though!

    Don't get too frustrated with your acne Emmy :) It can take up to 4 months for some products to show results.

    1. Ooooooooh, I don't mind smells. Lots of Asian herbs and products are really strong, weird smells, lol. And I'm planning to just use it at night time only :)

      The cleanser I'm using right now is pretty good. If I don't use it, my pimples come back. I just need some extra products to help out.

      Thanks for the input!

    2. Ooh, what kind of cleanser is it? :)

    3. It's one of those Clean and Clear Morning Burst ones! I had the green and blue one. I'm on my second bottle of the blue one! :D Would you like a review on it?

  2. The Body Shop has a great Tea Tree line, but it can be rather pricey. I usually stock up when they are having a sale. Their oil is regular priced $9 (i believe) which isn't too bad but it is a tiny bottle. I usually find Tea Tree oil in the Natural Foods/Products section of the supermarket for the same price but twice the size.


    1. Hi Deana,

      Yes, I've seen their tea tree line and it is kinda expensive :( I'm waiting to go to the store to buy some! :)

      What's your favorite tea tree product from The Body Shop?
