Yes it's safe to apply tea tree oil directly to the skin and tea tree oil is good for getting rid of acne and treating other skin conditions.

Some people have reported that tea tree oil directly applied to their skin caused irritation of their skin but that just means that they're probably allergic to the tea tree oil or their skin is more sensitive than others.

You can also dilute the tea tree oil with olive oil, vegetable oil or some almond oil.
