One of the most commonly suggested essential oils for acne is tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia). The Medical Journal of Australia published a study that found a gel containing five percent tea tree oil treated acne as effectively as a lotion containing five percent benzoyl peroxide (a standard medical treatment), with far fewer side effects.
Most people can dab a little tea tree oil directly onto pimples. However, if you have never used tea tree, spot test first to make sure you don't have a bad reaction, especially if your skin is very sensitive. You can also dilute tea tree in a carrier oil for use on acne.
Mix ingredients in small, dark bottle. Every night, massage a little of the mixture around your pimples.
