Is a blend of witch hazel, tea tree oil and lavender oil worth a try?

Do you think a blend of witch hazel, tea tree oil and lavender oil sounds good? What sort of concentrations? I was thinking of mixing in 10 drops of lavender oil and 6 drops of tea tree oil for every teaspoon of witch hazel...

I mixed 50ml of Witch Hazel in an amber bottle with 60 drops of lavender, 40 drops of tea tree oil and 20 drops of geranium.
On the first application after about ten minutes my skin was a lot less red! It also felt really smooth. This morning my existing spots are slightly reduced and only one tiny white head formed over night (usually i wake up with a few).
So far so good!
It might just be a fluke, so I will keep you all updated on the progress in case anyone else is thinking of trying.

Well its only the second day of using this stuff and i must say my skin hasn't looked so even for a long time! My existing spots look a lot better and i can't feel any new ones... i will start trying it on my back tonight, i will ask my partner to apply it. Its always a problem getting to spots on your back to treat them hey?

Just an update, my skin is looking pretty good today (day 3) with one new spot and rapidly reducing old spots. I bought some topical 5% ibuprofen gel as per Temp123 so hopefully this new acne fighting kit will work for me long term Fighting the bacteria, inflammation, scarring and skin tone seems like a sensible approach, can anyone think of anything i might be missing?

I bought mine from Boots in the UK, but you should be able to get it at any health store, chemist, or 'hippy' type shop - just make sure its 100% pure essential oil and not the cheap fragrance stuff for oil burners!
