DIY All-Natural Blemish Eraser Herbal Spot Treatment

Nothing ruins a perfectly good morning like noticing that a zit has made a home of your face overnight.

Ugh. Go Away!

Now while I’ve been able to eliminate 99% of my adult-acne with a properly balanced diet (including a lot of necessary gut healing) and my natural skincare routine, I still get the occasional blemish (typically right before my period). Such is life.

DIY all-natural blemish eraser spot treatment to the rescue!

While I believe a gentle, nourishing approach to skincare is best to strengthen skin and prevent breakouts, once a zit has reared its head it needs to be zapped!

This is an ultra-concentrated recipe that is meant to apply directly to blemishes as a spot treatment. It is not meant to be applied to your entire face or a large area of skin.

Ingredients:

  • ½ teaspoon organic tea tree oil — helps fight bacteria
  • ½ teaspoon organic tamanu oil — an extremely hardworking healing oil that reduces inflammation, fights bacteria, and regenerates skin to reduce the appearance of scars
  • 4 drops lavender essential oil — helps fight bacteria and reduce inflammation

*While this would typically be a high concentration of essential oil, tea tree oil is one of the few essential oils that can safely be applied to the skin neat (i.e. undiluted)

Directions:

Add all of the ingredients to a 5 ml glass roller bottle.* Shake the bottle and apply to blemishes after washing your face and before applying moisturizer/face oil.

*A roller bottle is the perfect way to apply the spot treatment since you can rub it right on your blemishes — so convenient! Plus 5 ml is about 1 teaspoon so that’s the perfect size for this recipe.

  1. Any suggestions for stubborn large brown spots on the face? I’ve tried Neroli, Myrrh, Lavender, Geranium, and Helicrysum, to name a few…no luck :/

  2. Hi there!
    What can you recommend in lieu of Lavender essential oil? It turns out I am allergic to Lavender essential oil..it’s not pretty 🙂

    Thank you!
