Occasional pimples or problematic acne affects people of all ages. The main causes include clogged pores, hormonal changes, stress, excess oil production and bacteria. Other factors such as diet, birth control pills, corticosteroids and androgens can worsen the problem. Essential oils like Clary Sage and Tea Tree are an effective and natural way to combat pimples or acne and balance hormones.


Try this at home: 
Wash and dry your face, combine Clary Sage and Tea Tree essential oils in equal amounts in the palm of your hand (approximately 2 drops of each), using a cotton ball, apply the blend to affected areas (do not apply all over the face, dab only onto affected areas). If your skin is sensitive, then add the essential oils to 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil, blend well and then apply.


Clary Sage; contains an important ester called linalyl acetate which aids in reducing inflammation, calms irritated skin, halts the growth of bacteria and helps balance hormones.  

Tip: Try massaging Clary Sage onto the lower abdomen or use in your BlueStone Essentials Diffuser to help keep hormones balanced.

Tea Tree; has strong antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties, just a small amount will penetrate the skin to unblock sebaceous glands, disinfect pores and dry out pimples and black heads.  

Tip: Tea Tree can be added to a spray bottle filled with water and spritzed onto the face and or body to help curb break outs.
