do an EXCELLENT essential oil mix, called clarifying synergy
, which you can combine with hazelnut oil to make a calming antibacterial moisturiser...
Nature's Gift rocks! I've used the clarifying synergy too and it definitely brings down inflammation, however I stopped using it because I didn't want to put it in a carrier oil anymore. I need to buy glycerin or aloe vera gel or something so it's an oil-free base.
I buy all of my essential oils, hydrosols, etc. from Nature's Gift or New Directions (wholesale). I trust Nature's Gift for quality, but sometimes the New Directions prices just can't be beat. One thing to watch out for: if you ever buy a "flower water", make sure it's actually a hydrosol (the distillate from the essential oil making process) NOT water mixed with a few drops essential oil. Nature's Gif sells hydrosols, New Directions sells flower water. Hydrosols are more expensive, but they're the good stuff. No sense in paying for plain water anyway.
By the way, I totally agree everything in Paul's post. I'm currently eliminating dairy and wheat (all gluten actually, such as Barely), lowering my sugar intake, and doing almost all of the stuff on that list and I'm noticing a significant difference. I'm also noticing what kind of acne I get from eating different food, and which acne comes from certain topicals. Acne really is a complex beast, so unless you're one of those lucky few, don't expect one change to get rid of it completely. It could be a combination of 3-5 things (e.g. hormones, stress, candida, food allergies, vitamin deficiency, picking face, sebum overload, cleanser/topical irritation, dirty pillowcase, no exercise, etc.).
I've noticed that most people on acne.org who healed their acne holistically had to make lifestyle changes that addressed several things on that list.
