Tea Tree essential oil has a reputation for being one of the most powerful broad spectrum antimicrobial ingredients that nature has to offer. The essential oil has also been shown effective against acne causing bacteria. Additionally, the anti inflammatory properties successfully reduce inflammation associated with acne.
Frankincense essential oil exhibits antibacterial activities and can help to soothe skin inflammation.
Rosemary is useful for reducing oil production and inflammation, swelling and redness. It also has antibacterial properties, and has been shown to effectively counteract the inflammatory response induced by P. acnes. [4,5]
Eucalyptus helps control the spread of acne through its antimicrobial properties coupled with its ability to reduce the amount of oil that sebaceous glands produce.
Sweet Basil has been shown to kill P. acnes bacteria, thus being a suitable topical acne treatment.
Lavender is well known for its anti inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
Wintergreen is a natural source of methyl salicylate, an analgesic compound. The body further breaks it down into salicylic acid which is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID).
