Re: Advice pls
Jun 16, 2003
I have been battling adult acne for about 7 years now. I have tried EVERYTHING, including Proactiv, every over the counter thing you can buy, doctor prescribed medication and nothing seemed to work.

This is going to sound crazy but I have been doing aromatherapy for a while and I decided to take it a step further....I started making some essential oil mixtures for friends for sore muscles, etc. I made some mosquito repellent oil and everyone was telling me how they work so well and people are now paying me for the stuff...

Anyway, back to the subject on hand, I had been tossing around the idea of making an oil for my face and neck for my acne. For a while I thought that it would be crazy to put OIL on my oily face. But finally I had had enough and figured it couldn't hurt anything. I used jojoba oil as my base oil (jojoba is the same density as sebum, the stuff that clogs your pores, and therefore is suppose to pull the sebum on your face out of your pores and really clean them good) and I used tea tree essential oil which is known to help acne and other sking problems such as eczema, etc.

So I mixed 2 tsp of jojoba oil to 2-3 DROPS of tea tree. I started last Sunday night 6/8 - I washed my face with Dove soap before going to bed and then patted it dry and then applied a thin layer of the oil all over my face and neck and went to bed. I had nightmares all night that I was going to wake up worse. BUT when I awoke, my skin was already WAY clearer than it had been in a long time, the pimples I still had were smaller and less red.... my skin was sooo smooth feeling, i didn't feel all the little bumps like I normally do.

When I got to work, people actually commented on how different my face looked, they asked if I was wearing makeup because my skin looked brighter and more even toned and that was after JUST ONE USE. I used it again that night and then also the next morning, after I washed I applied it for day wear. It has been a week and my face is almost completely clear, its soft, its not blotchy red. I have way more confidence. I'm not trying to hide my face anymore. I'm actually going to get my waist length hair cut to my chin because now I want to show off my face versus hiding it behind my hair!

I know this sounds unbelievable but this worked for me!! I don't know why I didn't know about this earlier or why someone hasn't marketed this yet! It would have saved me alot of years of hiding at home!

I hope some of you try it. I would love to hear how it works for others! and i really hope it works as well for you as it did for me.

Work to live....don't live to work.
