    Default can i mix tea tree oil with virgin olive oil?

    Hi all, new rosacean here and looking for alternate ways to resolve my redness/flushing. At the moment (7 weeks in), I getting only flushing/burning and redness. I have read that tea tree oil is a good alternative but i am confused by its applications. Some say that it must be diluted, others apply it directly to the face. I am not sure if it is suitable for redness and trying to limit it. I have had others say that tea tree oil can't be diluted with water and must have another oil. As i have virgin olive oil handy, can i mix it with that and apply it to my face?

    If i can apply it, can i apply it over or under my metrogel?

    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

    You should mix the tto with some other bse oil. I use Argan oil as it doesn't make my skin oily. I have also red that you can use coconut oil. I tried that but it was very oily so I switched to the Argan. I have noticed a difference in the redness since I started using the tto and Argan. I mix three drops of each in the palm of my hand and apply all over my face. At first I was just using the tto to wash my face. Then red that you need to leave it on the face.

    You could use that or just a plain moisturiser like simple light lotion but be careful with tea tree oil it can make your face red and sore if you use too much
