Tea tree oil is an alternative herbal treatment for pimples. It has disinfectant properties and calming and cleans the skin of its natural oils. As soon as you learn to use it will become a formidable weapon in the fight against acne.
Make your own homemade treatment. If the tea tree undiluted essential oil seems too hard for your skin then you can put a few drops of oil in a few tablespoons of aloe vera gel and apply the solution directly on the pimples you want to get rid of. An alternative to the aloe vera is the organic raw honey. It also has antibacterial properties that hasten skin healing.
Preventing acne. Add a few drops of tea tree essential oil in your cream moisturizer and cleanser in order to combat the most stubborn pimples. Between 2 and 6 drops are enough depending on how strong you want it. Just make sure you do not get some into your eyes.
Add it in your bath water. Put a few drops in water when bathing to get rid of acne on the chest, back and other body parts. The oil not only has a therapeutic effect, it will give to the water a pleasant aroma.
