I have had an acne Rosacea breakout on my face for almost 6 months. After trying 4 different topical treatments with no results and resisting a second oral antibiotic treatment, I found earthclinic.com. I read EVERYTHING on Rosacea and decided to try Tea Tree Oil on my face. I applied a drop or two to a moistened cotton ball twice a day and noticed relief right away in the sensitivity of my skin. The symptoms began to subside during the first few days and I started applying it directly to my skin with a cotton swab only where I had redness or a bump. It has been just over a week, and my face is mostly clear from breakouts with just a little redness left. I am so relieved to have found something that works - and so happy that it is a natural AND inexpensive treatment. I highly recommend trying it for your Rosacea.

Have suffered from Rosacea for over a decade. Anitbiotics and prescription acne creams didn't work. I discovered Tea Tree Oil on this site. I have been using it for approx one week. I mix it with a cleansing cream, NOT cold cream. I put one part (I started with teaspoonfulls)of TTO with 7 parts cleansing cream. This gave me approx 12 or 13 % solution. I use this to wash my face twice daily. This stuff is powerful, I let it sit on my skin for a couple of minutes the first time I used it and it did irritate. I have extremely sensitive skin. Now I don't let it sit on my skin and I also make sure to use a light a touch as possible when washing, using warm water only. I found the TTO at a local health food/farmer's market. It was only about $7 USD for a 1/2 oz bottle. So far, it seems to have somewhat abated the redness and acne. Not a cure, but definately an improvement. I also use a repair cream that I bought at the drug store. The combination of the two seems to help somewhat. There is still some redness but I no longer look like a tick ready to pop. After the anti redness lotions has dried, I do apply a good quality moisturizer. I've been drinking a tablespoon full of apple cider vinager two to three times daily and taking fish oil pills two to three times daily. The ACV actually calms my stomach. I hope this helps someone as I know how painful (physically and emotionally) rosacea can be.
