Packaging: The tea tree oil comes packed in a tiny green transparent glass bottle (that’s quite a mouthful) with a screw cap in white. Inside it has a tightly fitted nozzle that dispenses the product without causing any spillage or wastage! The transparent bottle allows you to keep a tab on the amount of product that has been used. I like the translucent packaging, but being glass, its not very travel-friendly!
Fragrance: As soon as you open the lid, you are welcomed by a very strong yet refreshing fragrance, it might be too much for you to bear if you have sensitive obituary glands! However, the scent vanishes in about few seconds!
Colour and Consistency: The oil is basically “COLORLESS” and has a very watery consistency. Its runny and absorbs quickly as well. Its an oil that doesn’t feel like oil.
Efficiency: The BS tea tree oil being an antiseptic and antifungal has been working great on my skin and my chemically treated hair! My skin is a lot clearer and it has been helping with my previous blemishes as well. It may have a slight drying effect, so always moisturise!

1. For Acne or Zits: Use it as a spot treatment on any breakouts with your fingertips or a q-tip.
