I have always believed that people walk into your life for a reason. One night, almost a year ago, when I was searching for natural products in India, one link through another, I stumbled across a site and was in love with the range of products almost instantly. Thus began a series of interaction with the person behind it and I picked up loads of products from her. Candles, gels, soaps, relaxing salts, name it and I have used it. I believe she is in my life for a reason, to heal and make my life more beautiful!
Easy to make acne gel
The summer is getting sweatier and stickier as we speak. Am not totally sure about you, but I just want to be under a shower till the sun goes down. At least I hope that will keep me skin safer. The harsh summer and the sweating also leads to acne! I am prone to getting acne ‘A LOT’ and my habit of squeezing them dry, loves leaving back scars. But since I have to come out of my watery comfort and face the sun, I came up with something else that sounded like it would help. AND IT DID!
My aroma therapy easy to make acne gel is a simple blend of five essential oils in a basic gel base. This helps to keep acne at bay and you can store it for a long time if handled correctly. The complexity level of this easy to make acne gel is low and the only time consuming thing is getting all the ingredients together!

What you need for the easy to make acne gel
- Water based Cucumber/witch-hazel/orange or all purpose gel
- German Chamomile Essential Oil – 1 drop
- Juniper Essential Oil – 3 drops
- Camphor Essential Oil – 3 drops
- Cedarwood/Rosewood Essential Oil – 6 drops
- Myrtle Essential Oil – 3 drops
- A clean glass container to store
Getting the easy to make acne gel ready
Put 50 ml of the gel of your choice in a clean and dry glass container. Add the amount of drops one by one according to the quantity specified. For example, add the German Chamomile oil and mix it with the gel. Next add the second EO and mix with the gel. Once you have added all the oils, use a tiny wooden spoon and stir the mixture well. The gel should reach a milky opaque consistency. If you are allergic to camphor, use rosewood oil. The idea is to have 5 oils in the acne gel.
How to use the easy to make acne gel
Wash your face with a natural facewash and pat it 75% dry. Use the tips of your clean fingers to dip in the acne gel and dab a bit on the affected areas. Use small circles to massage the affected areas. Use just a little bit because using it in excess can make your skin turn oil. If you feel there is excess gel on the face, use a damp tissue to clean the excess gel.
This gels not just helps heal acne but also helps to cure heat boils that one gets on the body. This easy to make acne gel can be stored in small jars as well and you can carry it in your purse and reapply as required. If you want to make a mix of this to use as a roll on, then use water as a base and shake it very well before every use. You get better results if you wash your face clean before evry application.
IMPORTANT: Essential Oils have a very strong effect on skin and are not to be used without a base of oil/gel/water. The number of drops to make this gel are very specific as they are used to balance the notes on the face. They are a different count for the body. Please stay safe while making these products.
