Tea Tree Oil

I went to Trader Joes to pick up some jojoba oil the other day and noticed that tea tree oil was sitting right next to it. Does anyone use tea tree oil? If so, what for and how? Does it moisturize? Thanks

I use it when my scalp is itchy, I add just a couple of drops to my Co- wash, it is suppose to be good for dandruff as well.
Tea tree oil is also good for pimples since it's antiseptic. It needs to be diluted though since it's too strong to put it straight on your face or it will burn. You can dilute it with water or what I do is mix a few drops in my bottle of jojoba oil and use it on my face since I love jojoba as a moisturizer.

Tea tree oil has antiseptic, anti biotic, and anti microbal properties. It is excellent for acne. I mix a few drops in my moisturizer to help keep my skin clear. I also use tea tree oil and water to clean my scalp when I wear braids in my hair.
It's also good for cleaning, like mildew in the shower. Mix it in a spray bottle and let it sit on the spot. I like to occasionally massage my scalp with it. A few drops through out is good and helps with itchiness.

Tea tree oil can be used straight on warts to help them go away. Takes a few months, but it worked for my daughter. We are trying it now for toenail fungus...

I might have missed it, but I'm surprised no one has mentioned how amazing it is for dandruff.
