  1. Hello guys! I am a 23 year old woman and I have a sensitive skin type. I use the tea tree essential oil with lime extract on the acne scars I have on my face. But then after applying the mixture, my skin started to get irritation and burnings. Then my skin turned reddish in color. As soon as I got this, I went and washed my face with cold water. This happened yesterday. But then still I have the burning sensation in that part of my skin and it still looks reddish in color. So, I am confused now and also I don’t know what to do further. Please suggest me a method to get rid of this skin condition as soon as possible. And tell me if there are any chances for this skin condition to become even worse. Also, please suggest a method that would go well with the sensitive skin type.

  2. I have a dry skin type by nature. But then will the usage of tea tree essential oil on my skin make it even more dry? If I face excessive dryness issue, can you please suggest me a remedy to overcome this?

  3. @ TAMIAH KLEIN. Hi TAMIAH KLEIN! You have taken the right decision at the right time. Since you have washed the mixture from your face with the cold water, there are no chances for this infection to become anymore worse. So you don’t have to worry on that part. And coming to the remedy to cure your irritations and redness, you can use fresh aloe vera gel for this. Take a small amount of aloe vera gel that if freshly extracted from the leaf. Then apply it all over the area where you have burning sensation and redness. Spread it gently and you can also massage your skin with it very slowly if you are comfortable with it. Then allow it to stay on your face for about 15 to 20 minutes. This can really offer a soothing and calming effect on your skin. And also, the burning sensation will get calmed down due to the cooling effect it offers on your skin. Apply this for whenever you can. I hope that may be within one day itself that part of your skin will get cured completely if you use it as many as times you can. Or it will take a maximum of two days to get cured entirely. Do not get panic on this.

  4. Can I use the tea tree essential oil mask every day on my face? Will it cause any side effects?

  5. Hey guys! Apart from the natural homemade remedies that are specified in this article, there is also another remedy that would really work very well in clearing all your acne scars from your face. You can use tea tree oil with the fresh neem leaves on your face. You can either mix a few drops of tea tree essential oil with one tbsp of thick neem paste that is freshly ground using a mixer or grinder. Or you can pour a few drops onto the neem leaves directly and make those leaves to stay on your face by sticking it directly on the acne scars. Both of these methods will really work in clearing the acne scars very effectively from your skin.

  6. @LEESA ANDERSEN. Hello LEESA ANDERSEN! Tea tree oil is best at absorbing the excess oil that is present in your skin. Sometimes it might also absorb the oil that is present in your skin and this might result in dryness on your skin. But then do not worry on that part. You can overcome this excessive dryness issues very easily. Always have the habit of applying your regular moisturizer followed by the face mask. No matter whatever mask you use, when you have a dry skin, it is really important to apply a small amount of moisturizer on your face.

  9. @ PERLA NORMAN. This entirely depends on your skin type and the ingredient you choose. Because, some of the people might have extremely sensitive skin types. And some ingredients can lead to excessive dryness or oiliness in your ski if you use it daily. Such people should avoid using it every day on their face as it might also cause any irritations, inflammations and other effects. But then if you are comfortable in using it every day and you don’t face any side effects, then you can absolutely use it daily. But then be careful when you use it daily. If you find any discomfort, stop using it regularly on your face. Instead you can use it three days once or weekly once.

  10. @ PERLA NORMAN. Hi PERLA NORMAN! I completely agree with the suggestions and views given by ISABELLA POLLARD. I use the tea tree essential oil with cucumber face mask daily on my face. I did not face any issues or discomfort on my skin when I use it daily. In fact, the scars on my skin are getting better and also it started to diminish. I hope that it will get cured very soon if I use it continuously for a few more days.

  18. Hey guys! When I was I my childhood I got hurt very badly on my knees. And that wound got cured but then I have a big scar on my knee. Can I use tea tree essential oil to cure that scar on my knee? Will it be effective I curing my wound scar?

  19. @FUJITA CHIU. Hello FUJITA CHIU! I can surely tell that tea tree oil will be able to diminish the scars caused by the acne infections on your face. Also, it can be used to treat wounds also. You can apply a few drops of tea tree oil mixed with any other carrier oil on the wounded area. This can help in a faster healing of wounds and also prevents the wounds from getting further developed and spread. But then I am not sure on using it to cure the scars caused due to the wounds. I don’t think so tea tree oil will be effective for curing those scars. You can use aloe vera gel for curing the old scars on your body. This can be more effective than the tea tree essential oil.

  20. @ HOA LAM. Oh that’s so nice of you HOA LAM to give your suggestion on curing my old scar. Also, thanks a bunch for telling me a remedial measure to cure that scar on my knee. Hope that aloe vera gel works to make the scar to get cured. But then, I have a small doubt in using the aloe vera gel. Should I use the freshly extracted aloe vera gel from the life or can I use the one that is available in the shops? Which will be more effective?

  21. @FUJITA CHIU. According to me it’s always best to use the fresh one rather than the one that are available in the shops. When you can get the 100% fresh aloe vera gel why to go for the one one that is partially natural which are available in the shops? Always prefer using the fresh aloe vera gel to get most of the benefits completely.

  22. Hello Guys! Due to my carrier, I tend to travel to a lot of places irrespective of time and weather. So, I will be traveling on sunny days too. Because of this my skin gets exposed to sun most of the times. I noticed a few changes happening in the skin throughout my skin. Later on I realized that I started getting some sun burns on my skin. These sun burns are extremely painful and also It starts to bleed a little sometimes. I applied some creams and lotions that are available in the shops which are meant for curing the sun burns in skin. But then, The pain is still the same and some of the burns got slightly cured. And one of my friends also had the same issue but then it got cured. Now she has burn scars on all the areas where she had sun burns on her skin. I fear that I might also get the same. Can I use tea tree essential oil for this? Will it prevent my skin from getting the sun burn scars?

  23. Is tea tree essential oil an edible one like the coconut oil? Can I consume this oil? What will happen if i consume this unknowingly?

  24. @ Berline Simmons. Hello Berline Simmons! Since some of the ingredients obtained are termed as natural, often we consume them whether it is edible or not. But tea tree essential oil is not an edible one. You should never consume the tea tree oil with or without anything. The National Poison center has declared that taking tea tree essential oil internally could be poisonous and a toxic one. Swallowing tea tree essential oil even in a small amount can lead a person to coma. It is that poisonous to our body when consumed. So, make sure that you don’t consume the tea tree essential oil by any chance. Always be careful while using this. Also, keep the essential oil from the reach of children. Often you might come across some DIY for toothpaste, mouth wash or mouth fresheners using tea tree essential oil in their recipe. But then do not use it since it is specified in the article.

  25. @YUBI TAKAI. Hello YUBI TAKAI. You don’t have to worry about the sub burns and the scars caused due to that anymore. Because we have tea tree oil to cure those sunburns and scars. Tea tree oil is known to best at treating the burns caused due tot he increased exposure to the sunlight in your skin.
