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 have been using tea tree oil for 20+ years. This brand has an "off" odor to it.

La verdad es que no he probado otros aceites del árbol del té por lo que mi opinión quizá no sea tan buena. Huele bastante mal pero te acostumbras, funciona como antiséptico ? Si funciona, pero no es demasiado potente. Si volviera a comprar compraría uno más caro pero con mejores referencias

When I try to pour the oil out from the bottle, it is way too much.

I got this, thinking its alot cheaper than that from NOW Foods, but the smell was way different. I think I should have listened to what some other reviewers were commenting abit the smell. I think I will have to revert to getting tea tree oil from NOW Foods (or something else with a more expected smell, wonder if they mix something else in? its supposed to be pure, I didn't expect the smell to be so different)

As an aromatherapist, We tend to go for the top quality in essential oils because they are used for medicine. Honestly they are not great. But all other foods etc are wonderful. Only oils are not top quality. Thanks
