Tea tree oil is also frequently used in dealing with acne. One concoction calls for one drop of tea tree oil combined with a half cup milk or water. Mix ingredients together. Dab with cotton balls on the face. Let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse. For lice, add two drop of tea tree oil to four ounces of shampoo. If the outbreak is severe, combine a half cup of olive oil with eight drops of tea tree oil. Massage into scalp. Cover head with shower cap and sit for 30 minutes. Wash with tea tree oil-infused shampoo mixture. But buyer beware, tea tree oil is not without its own issues. It is believed to alter hormone levels and can cause blistering, itching, skin irritation and redness. It should never be ingested.
