after years of using tea tree oil and witch hazel separately to control my unfathomably moody skin, I came to the genius (if I do say so myself) conclusion of combining the two. duh. the result is a tingly solution that controls both oil and bacteria.
21st Century Tea Tree Oil (I found it in the natural area of Hy-Vee) is my favorite brand of tea tree oil because it leaves a clean, non-oily finish on skin, but any brand of skin-friendly tea tree oil would work just as well. just unscrew the cap to your witch hazel and pour in about .75 fl oz. of the oil or about 1/3 of a small bottle. pour on a cotton pad and let your pores breathe!
