  • No I hadn’t.
    Most reactions to essential oils are mild and can be treated at home. If you applied the oil topically, thoroughly wash the affected skin with gentle soap and cool water. Applying a cold, wet compress to your skin can feel soothing. You can also apply a mild hydrocortisone cream to the rash to relieve itching

  • No, I always use the diluted solution of tea tree oil.

  • No, not me. Have heard straight oils can be very dangerous

  • No never had issues with pure tea tree oil, but it does recommend you water it down if you are sensitive.

  • Nope not me. i am very careful with all the fancy stuff though.

  • I haven’t heard of this before, but it doesn’t sound good

  • Tea tree oil not good for dry skin its best for oily skin

  • That doesn’t sound good. Oils can be very strong when undiluted. I’ve never heard of them burning skin before.

  • The solutions of tea tree I buy are already diluted. They sting but have never burned.

  • I just bought a bottle as I had a bit of infection in my toes, but I think you are not suppose to burn them in any diffusers or oil burners as it is not made for burning. Check the instructions on the item .

  • No i haven’t heard of this but essential oils should be diluted in a carrier oil

  • No – I have not had a burn and caution is needed with all oils.

  • No, I’ve never had that problem.

  • You may be allergic to it and / or you may have applied too much at one time.

  • Nope. Hopefully it doesn’t last long. If it persists I’d go see your dr
