    Lacks a built-in dropper… This IS 100% Tea Tree oil. Great product, as I’d expect from NOW. I own other essential oils of theirs as well. One gripe I have about this, however: NO DROPPER with this 4 oz bottle! This is the first 4 oz bottle I’ve bought from them of any kind of essential oil. The others I own are 1 oz bottles, and have built-in tops for getting one drop at a time. Lacking that is NOT A GOOD THING FOR ME!! I generally only use a few drops at a time, and I’m extraordinarily clumsy and have shaky hands! Not having expected the bottle to lack that special top, I was a bit annoyed at having to seek out a separate dropper so I could use this. Oh well. I have one now, but I’m also forewarned. I’m assuming the other 4 oz bottles of essential oil lack the special drop-tops as well. I wonder why? The assumption that if I buy this much as a time I must use larger quantities at once?Do some research on its properties and uses if you haven’t already. This oil is absolutely incredible! Being antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral, it has myriad applications. I wont go through them all, as other reviewers have named several, but I can list some of the unnamed uses for it.MY unique uses: I mix it in a spray bottle with distilled water, and have several uses for this. It’s effective in keeping my dog away from plants, and the garbage can, as it’s very unappealing to them. As an added bonus, it’s disinfecting the garbage can when I use it this way. BEWARE, however, because the oil is TOXIC if ingested, and if I’m not mistaken, I believe I read it shouldn’t be used anywhere near cats. Double-check on that before use. I don’t own any cats.You can also use this spray in a travel size spray bottle for a hand sanitizer. No more alcohol, and tea tree is superior. It’s even effective at killing MRSA, which is pretty impressive!I’ve mixed the oil with my shampoo, made homemade vinegar rinses with it, put it in homemade balms, sugar scrubs, the list goes on. It’s great for an ointment for small scratches or bites, applied to ingrown hairs to prevent infection, used in a soak for any fungus on the feet, etc. etc. Some people DO react if it’s applied undiluted, though my husband and I have not. This is probably prevented because if I apply it this way, it’s only on a tiny spot like an ingrown hair, and applied with a cotton swab. Diluted with a carrier oil, in a balm or scrub, it makes a pretty impressive difference on eczema.I made a sugar scrub with this (and carrier oils) for my cousin for Christmas. She immediately raved to me about the effect she saw and felt on her psoriasis! :D It is also ASTONISHINGLY effective at killing mold. I had a pretty bad outbreak of mold in my house once, and as I’m allergic, it was serious. This was my first use for tea tree oil, after research on how to be rid of mold naturally. Even disgusting chemical cleaners and disinfectants didn’t rid my house of it, and I’d nearly given up. Suited up with mask and protection, I attacked all the mold with tea tree oil, and it NEVER came back. Careful when spraying in large quantities, however, and wear a mask. This can be very irritating if inhaling the mist or if you get it into your eyes.

    Quality Oil. I was concerned this might be diluted given the price (although NOW is a very good brand for nutrition supplements, good price and quality, I had not bought any of their essential oils before). This smells pure, clean and strong, works medicinally as well as it should.
