    It's true, tea tree oil is good for blepharitis. Because tea tree oil can allay inflammation ,disinfect the eyes and relieve itching. Most importantly, it's green.So you needn't worry about the side effect too much. However, it do have side effect but not too serious. If you use too much oil for too long,you may get fat granule after blepharitis. So control the amount and stop using it once your eyes get better.
