Tea tree oil must be diluted before applying it with cotton ball. For dilution, tea tree oil to distilled water ratio is 1:1. Or else mix 2 tbsp. of carrier oil (jojoba oil) in 1 tsp. of tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil has a high medicinal value due to terpinen-4-ol, one of the 98 compounds present in this oil. Terpinen-4-ol is a potent weapon against fungus, viruses and the bacteria. The antibacterial properties of tea tree oil that are often talked about, come from terpinen-4-ol. Hence, it makes sense to use tea tree oil that acts as a natural antibacterial agent and clears acne.
