Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My face would occasionally break out with acne no matter what soap, astringent or cleanser I used.Eventually I was at a complete loss and had the revelation that less is more.

So I simply used an almond or Peppermint castille soap and followed up by massaging a few drops of Cedarwood essential oil all over my face. I did this once in the morning and once in the evening. I learned that it is good to use other oils so I would also use Lavender, Patchouli, galbanum and spikenard.

For the past few months my skin has looked incredibly smooth and the few breakouts I've had are very small in size.
