Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder caused by an over-production of sebum. The exact cause of acne is not known, but some factors include stress, diet, monthly menstrual cycles, and the use of cosmetics.

Essential Oils Suggested for Treatment:

Cajeput, Lavender, Tea Tree

Suggestions for Use:
  • Combine essential oil with a carrier oil such as grapeseed and apply to skin
  • Add a few drops of essential oil to a fragrance free and lanolin free cream or lotion and massage into skin
  • Add a few drops to rose flower water, for use as a toner

If your skin is sensitive, use the essential oils well diluted in the carrier oil, cream or lotion. If the skin is inflamed, do not massage.
