I prefer to avoid antibiotics when possible, so the use of this brand of Tea Tree Oil was an experiment. Thankfully it actually provided some relief. The Tea Tree Oil did a very credible job of drying the lesions, and in turn reduced the aggravating itching. Once I got used to the turpentine smell, applications with a q-tip or cotton ball became routine. After a week or two of dealing with the persistent staph infection in my scalp, I saw my doctor and started a 10 day course of antibiotics. That WAS the cure. One notable ding for this brand's product... It needs to have a "drop-at-a-time" metering device installed in the mouth of the bottle. You need very little of the liquid, but it can easily be wasted when it's not metered out. I ended up transferring the contents from this product to another brand's metering bottle.

I find the smell a bit nasty and has not improved my acne but I will continue testing it for much longer and see if it improves

This oil has a very strong antiseptic effect, I am satisfied by it`s quality, but it is not convenient to use without dispenser because it needs only 1-2 drops to using. My little son said that this oil has a smell of mushrooms

It doesn't seem quite as strong as desert essence brand, but it will do for my cleansing wipes.
