Where can I buy pure tea tree oil (if there is such a thing)
I've bought a bottle from the body shop and it says 15% tea tree oil.
Is this the only way it's sold?

Boots have pure 100% pure Tea Tree essential oil, be sure to get the one which is called KEW Botanics, they sell another brand which is not the same.

Park and Shop on Al wasl Rd sell Tea tree oil, Tisserand brand. Very good. I think I have also seen it in the health shop in Dubai mall near Waitrose (shop near the door)

A lot of pharmacies in the malls carry it too. Just ask at the counter. Also bought it before at the pharmacy in Arabian Ranches.

Just interested...what are you using Tea Tree Oil for tipytoes? Just as a natural antiseptic?

Yes as an antiseptic.
I seem to have a few breakouts on my face and chest. I've tried it on a spot before and it dries it out fast.

Actually Body Shop may only have 15% of tea tree oil but it really is my favorite on pimples and spots. I am not sure what the remaining 85% are made of but it works for me!

I've read that you should not apply 100% tea tree oil on your skin as it may burn it. Does anyone know how to use it right?

You can use 100% tea tree oil, but if you have sensitive skin it's best to dilute it. It's usually diluted with other oils.

I use 100% TT oil direct with no problems, but maybe some people would have sensitivity if their skin is fragile or broken then I'd say dilute it.
