Blackheads are caused when sebum (the oil produced by the sebaceous glands that lubricates the skin) combine with skin pigment and clog the pores. Factors that contribute to the condition are stress, heredity, oily skin, the use of cosmetics and overwashing or repeated rubbing of the skin.

Essential Oils Suggested for Treatment:

Eucalyptus, Lavender

Suggestions for Use:
  • A facial steam, using several drops of essential oil, is particularly helpful for blackheads

If the areas are badly inflamed, do not use steam treatments as this may worsen the condition.
