What can essential oils do for someone with acne? Essential oils are a natural alternative to things with harsh chemicals. Doterra’s ClearSkin blend and face wash are an easy fix for someone looking for a quick and effective way to get rid of pimples. Another way to banish acne is to make a blend of essential oils yourself. You can combine melalueca (for its antibacterial properties) with frankincense (promotes cellular health and reduces the look of scars) and lavender (for its soothing and calming effects). You can adjust this depending on your needs and skin type, but an even amount of each oil in a small rollerball will get rid of blemishes in no time.
