Sure, over-the-counter and prescription treatments are available for acne, but they’re oftentimes too strong for sensitive skin, causing peeling and redness, not to mention they’re filled with chemicals I definitely don’t want in my body!! This antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory essential oil blend is plenty strong to knock out most acne and keep new pimples from appearing. Castor oil helps draw impurities out of your pores, and jojoba oil (which is actually a plant wax!) is very similar to our skin’s own sebum, keeping your skin from overproducing oil.
1 T castor oil
1 T jojoba oil
10 drops tea tree oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops clove essential oil
5 drops eucalyptus essential oil
5 drops frankincense essential oil
5 drops rosemary essential oil
2 drops vetiver essential oil (optional; helps with scarring)
4 drops vitamin E oil
Combine all ingredients in a small, sterilized roll top glass bottle, a reducer-top bottle, or a tincture bottle. Shake before use. Apply morning and evening after cleansing and toning. Let dry before applying moisturizer. Don’t forget to keep essential oils out of direct sunlight!
