So you're lookin' for something to help keep your skin clear but you're not into all those icky creams and messy cover ups? There's a natural solution that can end or curb the regular teen break-outs - tea tree oil.

Tea tree oil comes from the tea tree - duh! The tree only grows in Northern New South Wales and Australia. The oil is found in the cells of the leaves. Aboriginals have been using the oil for thousands of years and there are stories of a "magical lagoon" where tea tree leaves have fallen and collected. Nowadays, there isn't a household in Australia that doesn't have tea tree oil. It can help with everything from bad breath to acne to athlete's foot.

Tea Tree Tidbits

1 Tea Tree oil is a great anti-bacterial which kills a broad spectrum of bacteria and a range of stubborn fungi like athlete's foot.
1 It's totally safe for all skin types (dry, sensitive, oily, etc.) and does not mess with normal cell growth and rejuvenation.
1 Tea tree oil is a powerful organic solvent and will actually dissolve the lumps of white blood cells which make pus (in other words - less nasty whiteheads.)

Tea Tree Oil Remedies


Blemishes (Acne)

Dab pure tea tree oil on blemishes three times per day, or add three to six drops of pure tea tree oil to warm water and rinse affected area. Apply tea tree antiseptic cream for day-time treatment. Some suggested products - Body Shop has a killer line of tea tree stuff that zaps zits. Try their antiseptic, their facial scrub and their dab-on gel.

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

    Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

    This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
