Fabindia Tea Tree Essential Oil comes sealed inside a cardboard packaging where all the necessary information about the product is mentioned. The oil comes in a blue coloured 10ml glass bottle with a plastic dropper secured with a firm screw cap. The dropper is given to ease the process but when there is little/half amount of product remaining inside the bottle, it stops working! You need to jerk it upside down or remove the dropper from the bottle to get the product out. Quite annoying!

A clear liquid with a strong fragrance that can be bothersome to people with a sensitive nose. However, I have no issues with the smell as I am pretty addicted to this scent ๐Ÿ˜

My Experience with Fabindia Tea Tree Essential Oil:

Let me first brief you that Tea Tree oil is a highly potential essential oil that comes with bevy of skincare and hair care benefits.  

๐Ÿ’—It contains antimicrobial, antifungal properties that help treat dandruff and other scalp infections. It is considered great for hair growth!
๐Ÿ’—This is a gentle and natural oil thus dermatologists recommend it for various treatments related to skin and hair.
๐Ÿ’—Tea Tree oil has anti-acne properties that prevent acne on the skin. If used daily, it helps to fade away the acne scars as well!
๐Ÿ’—Besides treating skin and hair, Tea Tree oil can also be used as a natural antiseptic spray, as medicine to treat nail infections, sinus and other infections. 

Some points to remember while using Tea Tree Oil are - not to ingest it as well as never use it on the skin if you are going out under the sun as this oil makes the skin sensitive to UV rays. Experts recommend that we should use it sparingly as Tea Tree oil tends to dry out our skin. Avoid using directly on your skin.

How I (to) use Tea Tree Essential Oil?

Well, I prefer using Tea Tree oil daily at night time on my moisturised skin, mostly dab it on my active acne or acne scars as a spot treatment! Most of the time, I mix it in my homemade face and hair masks for extra benefits. Besides, I apply this oil ((mixed with water) as a toner sometimes to soothe razor burns and other skin irritations. Apart from these, I mix a few drops of Tea Tree Oil into my regular shampoo (sometimes with hair oil) to unclog the hair follicles and mind you, it works great in preventing dandruff.

Coming to its performance, does it combat ACNE?

Well, it is true to its claim to a certain extent! Yes, it reduces the size of newborn cystic acne but takes its own time to disappear them completely. Upon application on the target area, it feels cool and doesn’t irritate the skin. Best part, when used daily it prevents the skin from further breakouts. Kindly, DO NOT APPLY this oil directly to the skin! Always mix it with either a moisturiser or simple water, else it will make your skin sensitive.

So does it work on BLEMISHES?
No, it doesn’t claim so!!

YES, it helps in curing dandruff and other scalp infections. This oil neither dried out my skin nor has irritated the skin or scalp so far. You can easily mix a few drops of this oil to your homemade hair masks or shampoos. It works amazingly that way, providing you with a clean scalp and healthy hair post hair wash!

How much it's helpful for SINUS/ NASAL CONGESTION?
I didn’t try it for this purpose or any other health issues so cannot comment on that part.


Not exactly!! Prior to this, I had used Tea Tree Oil from another Indian brand (showed here) and honestly, I have found no difference between them! Fabindia Tea Tree Oil doesn’t claim to clear out the blemishes, though I had the expectation that my skin would be free of pimples next day only! Unfortunately, it wasn’t๐Ÿ˜ž Nevertheless, this is a pure essential oil so there is nothing harm in trying this out, especially if you have no other options. 


Plus Points:    

  • Pure Essential Oil 
  • Natural
  • Cruelty-free
  • Would last long
  • Reduces the acne size and helps in treating skin infections
  • Prevents breakouts
  • Fights with scalp infection
  • Helps control dandruff
  • Affordable 
  • Made in India product

Minus Points:     

  • Doesn’t work well on active cystic acne
  • Does nothing good for the blemishes 
  • Packaging

Rating: 4.8/5 



Fabindia Tea Tree Essential Oil is a pure essential oil, completely chemical free that helps reduce the size of newborn acne but does nothing to diminish old active pimples as I expected it would! However, this oil is absolutely fantastic in treating dandruff or other scalp infections.  Hence, I would definitely recommend this to my friends who are looking for an affordable option.

Hope, you found my review helpful.
