Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I have been dealing with acne since high school, nothing terrible, minor blemishes here and there. Yet, about a year after I had my son my face started erupting in cystic acne. I have always ate healthy, took vitamins, and worked out so I didn't understand what the deal was.

I went to the OB/GYNO and had them test me for a hormonal imblance which I hear can happen after the birth of a child, and it came back negative. I went to the dermatologist and she said well all that can help you is Accutane. So not taking that road, I decided to turn to the oils.

After about 8 months of tweeking and lots of $$ spent on oils (not wasted though!) I have found my "light at the end of the tunnel", although it may not work for everyone. I stopped using all harsh face washes and acne products. I went all natural, I wash with coconut oil, then I put on organic Manuka honey for 10-30 minutes, then I use a 50/50 of distilled water and apple cider vinegar.

After that dries, I use the Young Living Essential Beauty Serum (acne prone) After that soaks in I use a drop of Vitamin E oil and a few drops of coconut oil with 2 drops of Frankincense, 2 of Cedarwood and 2 of Lavender.

Then in a capsule I use 4 drops of Juniper (good for the kidneys), 2 of Longevity (overall health) , 2 or 3 of Copaiba (inflammation) , 2 of Peppermint (in case the Thyme bothers my stomach) and 3 of Thyme (good for acne) Sometimes I will add a little citrus.

Within a few days everything started drying up and my face was looking clearer everyday! Hope this can help someone else!
