Tea tree oil is an absolute lifesaver for many purposes including acne, bacterial and hygiene issues (including household purposes). This one is excellent - pure and great quality. Mix a few drops with water or a carrier oil (like olive oil or sunflower oil) to use it, as it is a lot more effective when diluted. Can be too potent/harsh on skin if used neat.
For acne prone areas, mix a cup of water with 6-10 drops tea tree oil, shake the mixture and apply like a toner (spray some onto a cotton pad and wipe over skin). Moisturise lightly afterwards, as it can be drying.
For spot treatment, dilute 1-2 drops in 1/2 a teaspoon of water and dab on the spot. Leave it to dry out.
To use it as an anti-bacterial surface cleaner, you can just dilute it with some water, spray it onto the surface and wipe with a damp cloth.
You can even use it as an air purifier - just mix a few drops in with steaming hot water (or use an oil burner), and let it diffuse into the air.
