How To Make Homemade Tea Tree Spot Gel

Tea tree is one of those ingredients that has many amazing uses. It is antifungal and also antibacterial and is therefore excellent in medicinal products such as medicated spot soap and medical foot products.

However, because of its rather ubiquitous usage, I do feel this has left some people thinking that tea tree oil can be used without carful consideration and in quantities that are far too excessive. In fact tea tree oil is very strong. And although it can be applied very precisely to difficult areas such as spots, it is too strong to be liberally applied to the face. Tea tree oil can create some considerable irritation to some skin types.

Many people who suffer from problematic skin and spot do not prefer to add further oily substances to the skin. Therefore a face gel is the perfect solution. A spot gel can also be tailored to your person requirements. We can make it thicker or thinner and also vary the texture to your preference.

We also don't have to make a gel. We can simply add the tea tree oil to a thinner oil such as rosehip seed oil or thistle oil. These oils will also help with any scarring.   



Ingredients for Basic Gel

  • half teaspoon 2.5ml glycerin
  • 20 drops preservative
  • 85ml spring water
  • 1g konjac glucomannan powder or xanthan gum

Ingredients for tea tree gel spot treatment

  • 5 teaspoons or 25ml of Basic Gel
  • half teaspoon 2.5ml witch hazel
  • half teaspoon 2.5ml aloe vera
  • 3 drops tea tree essential oil
