Using tea tree for acne

Natural treatment for acne

After reading much about the advantages of tea tree oil, I decided to try it out on my son's acne. I put together a mixture of 1 part tea tree oil to 4 parts water (about).

My son has been applying it to his acne every day and it seems to be doing the trick. The stuff really smells bad--it smells like it would kill insecfts---but it supposedly kills the bacteria that actually causes acne.

There are some people that will have a reaction to the tea tree oil, so you you may want to do just a small amount at first to see if your skin reacts.

Tea tree oil is available at any local drugstore and the great thing about it is that it costs less than $5. That is even cheaper than the least expensive acne cream.

Try it out for yourself and see if it works!
