First Impression: I first noticed about the oil that the smell is very strong. It's much more herbal smelling than the tea tree oil smell I had engrained in my head from past experiences with the scent from candles, cleaners, and beauty products. I honestly didn't know what to expect from this product and was a bit afraid to use an oil on my face or to clean my home.
My Thoughts: I found a couple facial cleanser recipes that helped me really put this oil to good use. I found that Apothecary Extracts 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil is a very effective cleanser when used with other natural products.
A couple recipes I found to work exceptionally well with this oil:
~1 tbsp 100% RAW honey
~5-10 drops 100% tea tree essential oil
Rinse face and neck with warm water to open your pores. Mix the honey and tea tree oil in a bowl or in your hands and massage the cleanser into your face and neck. You can rinse the cleanser off right away or leave it on for 10-15 minutes as a mask.
The second is something for those interested in the Oil Cleansing Method. I found a the following mixture did wonders for my oily, acne-prone skin.
~ 1 teaspoon Castor Oil
~ 1 teaspoon Jojoba Oil
~ 1 teaspoon Grape Seed Oil
~ 1/4 teaspoon Tea Tree Oil
I mixed this up each time to make sure I had a fresh batch of oil each time I used this cleansing method (once or twice a week).
