Tea tree is a multitasking oil, but use it incorrectly and it might irritate your skin. 

'Tea tree oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, this is why it is great at fighting acne and other inflammatory skin conditions. But just because it is a natural product it doesnt mean you can apply it to your skin without any considerations.

Because of its antimicrobial properties, tea tree oil can keep acne-causing bacteria at bay and soothe inflammation. However, pure tea tree oil can cause skin irritation, and end up drying out your skin or causing the opposite effect: triggering an overproduction of oil. 

If you have 100% pure tea tree oil, you have to use a carrier oil or lotion before applying it. Don't apply more than 1 or 2 drops topically to avoid redness and irritation. 

You can also choose store-bought formulas containing tea tree oil to get the right ratio and avoid causing any inflammatory reaction on your skin.
