Recipes for natural essential oil mixture for face

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello all. I am currently trying to switch out all of my beauty products for natural ones. I am looking for a replacement for my neutrogena salicylic acid face lotion. I have pretty much been using this since i was a teenager and, well, I am far from a teenager now (I am 31). So I may not any longer need a "pimple product" per se, but unfortunately I still do get the occasional hormonal break out. So Something that is gentle on skin, has some antibacterial and moisturizing properties would be great! I also was wondering about proper dilution for essential oils to be safe on the face. Also I am pregnant, so I know certain oils are off limit. Thanks for any suggestions:)

Lavender EO straight on a zit or added to a carrier of jojoba or argan oil as a daily moisturizer.  Been doing for 15 years and I get compliments on my skin all the time.  :)

Awesome! Thank you! Do you know the ratio of lavendar eo to carrier oil? Also do you put it on once a day or twice?

Hi!  I've started a monthly newsletter on therapeutic grade essential oils.  I talk about most common oils and uses, how to dilute, how to determine purity of an oil, how to use them for effective and non-toxic cleaning solutions, and much more!  Please message me with your email address if you would like me to add you to my mailing list!
