Apply to affected area 1-2 times a day. If your skin tends to be dry, recommend diluting the tea tree oil and oil may dry the skin quickly.
Oregano oil: It is best to dilute oregano oil before putting it on your face. Mix of equal parts of oregano oil and a carrier oil, such as jojoba oil, olive oil or coconut oil. Then apply the mixture diluted to the point of conflict regularly until your skin care.
Create your own facial oil (moisturizer!)
Best used with: All of the above oils.
How to do:
Choose your favorite carrier oil (this could be coconut oil, jojoba oil, argan oil or olive oil, even - but I recommend the coconut!). Then select your favorite essential oil and add about 4-7 drops. Do it slowly, stirring or shaking the container is in the oil. The odor must be detectable, but not unbearable. Then you're done!
