I LOVE tea tree oil, and now I love it even more!! I've always used it on acne and pimples, but I had no idea it had so many uses!! When I first started using it I didn't like the smell of it at all, but now over time I've really developed a taste for it. In fact, when my fiance uses it now, I love the way it smells on him too!
