    Hey all, bought some tea tree oil from tesco the other day for spots, but it's 100% - not diluted. I've seen on the internet that it should be diluted for use on skin, but other places have said that its perfectly fine.

    What should I do? Also, if I need to dilute it, how would I do this? Thanks

    Don't know why you posted as anonymous...

    Anyway. I used to use tea tree oil on my skin, withot diluting it. Unfortunately it didn't do anything to help. To dilute it, you would add water to it. You can probbaly find the 'ratios' on the internet somewhere.

    The only thing I've used with Tea Tree Oil in it, had it diluted...

    I'd dilute it personally.

    depends how sensitive your skin is.. mine is actually pretty sensitive and i've used it straight on spots before. Your best bet to get rid of spots is to boil water, mix it with dettol and press it on the spot - nothing else works as well!
