Is it safe to use tea tree oil on incisions?

I just had an appendectomy last Monday and just took the bandages off the incisions today. I normally take baths with tea tree oil and I need to find out if it would be ok to do so tonight or should I wait?

Tea tree oil is natural antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-infection and also has wound-healing qualities. It helps the skin to heal by encouraging the formation of scar tissue. You can use it.
