Aromatherapy Skin Care Advice For Acne Skin

Because of the bacterial, anti-inflammatory and rebalancing properties of essential oils, aromatherapy skin care is an ideal treatment for acne.


If you suffer from acne, a daily massage with essential oils will help cleanse and soothe your skin.

50ml base of apricot oil
10 drops lemon oil
10 drops cypress oil
5 drops lavender oil

Combine the oils and massage well into the lymph glands (down the sides of the neck), sinus region and forehead.

Lavender oil is also good for treating acne because of its antiseptic qualities.  Dilute the oil with witch hazel and dab onto the affected areas.

Opt for a deeper clay mask treatment once a week, adding 2 drops of juniper, which is stimulating and antiseptic.
