What is acne?

Acne is the most common disorder of the skin. It is due to over activity of the sebaceous glands in the skin combined with bacterial infection. Too much of the oily substance, sebum, is poured onto the surface of the skin. There, dirt from the environment, particles from clothing, and dead cells stick to the sebum and facilitates growth of bacteria. Pores become blocked, forming blackheads, and the congested hair follicles become infected, giving rise to the familiar pots

It is commonest in adolescents, but sometimes persisting well into the twenties. Women using birth control pills may be subject to acne due to hormonesimbalance. Alcohol and cigarettes can also affect the skin as well as poor or unbalanced diet.

Useful essential oils for acne

Certain essential oils can be applied pure to individual spots. For example:

  • Tea tree oil
  • Lavender oil

Yet, you must check that you do not have allergy to these oils before using them on your face! Then you can apply very sparingly at night after cleaning, using a cotton bud, until the mark/spot has completely disappeared.

Treatment may need to be continued for many weeks, or even months. Therefore, for a more global and long-term use (and to prevent acne to appear or re-appear), you can do a face lotion by diluting these oils into carrier oil:

  • Geranium
  • Lavender
  • Bergamot
  • Rosemary
  • Tea tree oil

You may wonder why these 5 oils. Below are some explanations:

  • Tea Tree oil, Lavender oil and Bergamot oil are all bactericidal.
  • Lavender is also soothing and healing, and promotes the growth of healthy new cells.
  • Bergamot is astringent, as well as anti-depressant (useful, because many young people become understandably depressed about their acne, and the depression may even make the condition worse).
  • Geranium can be used to balance the secretion of sebum.
  • Rosemary and Geranium, among other oils, are used for body massage to stimulate the lymphatic system, and so help dear the body of toxins.

How to use? What is the recommended dosage?

A 2% dilution is a maximum. start with 1% and increase in case you need a stronger effect. when ordering oil with us, we send you a small guide detailing how to check you are not allergic to an oil, and how to know the number of drops to use to get a certain percentage of dilution.
