Can tea tree oil evaporate through the skin

In order to evaporate through the skin you would have to ingest it and then systemically have it move to your epidermal layers and then through diffusion expel into the atmosphere.

But, if you are asking if the essential active ingredients of tea tree oil can be absorbed through the skin, the answer is yes.

Just to help you a little bit further: the essential oil of plai has 100 times more of the active ingredients than tea tree oil. It is available online through herbal warehouses and is expensive, but well worth the price. It comes from Thailand and I have been there on several occasions studying traditional therapies.
