Hi I have used tea tree and witch hazel for a long time to heal my skin faster but it does not stop breakouts from coming in. Am I applying it wrong? How long do you leave it on? I found redmond clay helps acne quite a bit. I used to dilute my tea tree oil with jojoba oil but found that to be too oily for my skin made breakouts worse. I have tried all these except neen oil so I will try that essential oil next. Can you drink the tea too? Is there anything else specifically you would recommend for inflamed breakouts on sides of nose and lips? Thank you! Love this article!!!
