I don't know. I assumed it was and I use it in my household cleaners. I guess it'd be good to check!

It's safe for topical use. A lot of ladies use it to replace less-safe acne treatments during pregnancy. :)

I use it topically for pimples and have done so for both pregnancies. You'll get mixed info from google.

Hello there,
Tea tree oil has proven very beneficial for the health of your hair and scalp. Like coconut oil for hair, tea tree oil has the ability to soothe dry flaking skin, remove dandruff and even can be used for the treatment of lice. To make homemade tea tree oil shampoo, mix several drops of tea tree essential oil with aloe vera gel, coconut milk and other essential oils like lavender oil.
Thanks

Hello,

Tea tree oil is likely safe when applied to the skin in recommended doses and durations in non-allergic people.
