I am still getting rid of old products I no longer use and came across a tube of Burt's Bee's Herbal Blemish remedy, and I decided to ditch it and DIY it with my YLEO! Based on the ingredient list, I added some oil I wouldn't have thought to add...
I started with a glass roller bottle (this one has a stainless steel roller ball) and added 4 drops Young Living Therapeutic Grade Clary Sage, and 2 drops each Fennel, Tea Tree and Juniper and topped off the with Humphrey's Organic Witch Hazel.
My skin is pretty good right now but I know I have a forehead in this house that could try out a product like this. I LOVE when my kids are open to the oils. Chances are if I involve them, they teach ME something. LOL. So I asked my my teenage son to try a little and he rolled it on and kept rolling, and rolling and rolling. I told him, "You only need a little bit" and he said with a sheepish grin, "I know, but it smells so good right now." :-)
It's pretty typical to get blemishes on our faces during the holidays. Usually I'll have at least one event I'm looking forward to, and miraculously, that's when they show up. I'm glad I have this on hand.

Essential Oil Ingredient Benefit List:
- Clary Sage can help to regulate excess sebum production and prevent acne from forming.
- Fennel has anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties that are effective in keeping the acne away. Fennel is also a natural astringent with skin-firming properties that helps maintain the elasticity of skin. Astringents help tighten pores and reduce oiliness.
- Juniper oil has naturally occurring antiseptic properties and is known for promoting healthy circulation. Dr Axe has this to say about Juniper Oil: With natural antibacterial and antimicrobial abilities, juniper berry essential oil is one of the most popular natural remedies for fighting skin irritations and infections. It can serve as a home remedy for acne and supports beautiful skin, reducing stretch marks and helping heal conditions caused by hormone imbalances. Use one to two drops mixed with a carrier oil as a gentle astringent or moisturizer after washing your face. You can also add some to your shower to help fight back or treat blemishes and foot odors and fungus.
- Tea tree oil has a reputation that precedes it. It is very well known. I suggest googling 'tea tree skin benefits' and take a look at a site you trust to see what I am not allowed to put in writing! It is all so good I don't think you'd believe it, anyway!
