Skin clearing DIY essential oil blend.

Did you know that essential oils can be super effective in helping with breakouts? Because the right essential oils contain a number of antibacterial and antiseptic qualities, killing the bacteria that often cause outbreaks.

So whenever an unexpected breakout flares up, I immediately whip up a batch of this super easy to make skin-clearing blend.


I found this recipe in a book, titled Oil + Glass: The Essential Collective, and I can honestly say it’s my go-to resource for essential oil recipes and potions. For everything from skin care and home cleaning products to health blends and aromatherapy tips.

The book explains that the oils used in this recipe (tea tree, frankincense, and lavender) are perfect for clearing problem skin because of their anti-bacterial, soothing and regenerative properties.
