How should I mix lavender oil and tea tree oil to get rid of acne?

Don't bother. I see patients all the time who have tried tea tree oil + various other oils; their acne is no better, but they do complain of dryness, itching, stinging, burning, and redness. At least 1 published study showed that tea tree oil can cause abnormal breast growth (gynecomastia) in boys. So don't waste your time & money; let a dermatologist prescribe legitimate acne remedies for you.

Tea tree oil may sting. If the area is already irritated, using tea tree oil may sting, burn, or irritate the skin. So it may make the area more red and inflamed. You're better off using something that's much more mild and less stinging.
