  1. There are so many different types of acne. What works for me/mine is a mixture of about equal parts of JOJOBA OIL as it’s closest to our own natural oils and tends to eliminate excess production of our own, and a bit less of TEETREE OIL which helps with bacteria, a much smaller amount of LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL and the same of BERGAPTENE-FREE BERGAMOT ESSENTIAL OIL. I apply this pre-mix to a clean face and upper back/shoulder area as I used to have constant acne there, worse than on my face.

    All the best to you.
