Essential oils acne treatment

I’ve been working with essential oils since I was in high school and I enjoy making my own formulas that have evolved over the years. This mixture is designed to gently combat and heal acne blemishes.

Acne spot treatment


Bergamot essential oil can cause skin to become more sensitive to the sun (photosensitive). Avoid use before sun exposure.


Combine the following ingredients in a 10mL roller bottle:

  • 15 drops bergamot essential oil
  • 15 drops geranium essential oil
  • 15 drops lavender essential oil
  • 15 drops tea tree essential oil

Then, fill the rest of the bottle with a carrier oil of your choice, such as jojoba, grapeseed, almond, or calendula.

Apply mixture to blemishes nightly as needed.

      Hi Karen, I bought mine from Noah’s Natural Foods (specifically the one on Yonge north of Eglinton) and I think you may be able to get them at Big Carrot as well.
