Acne Soap Recipe I’ve suffered with acne for decades, my husband has had cystic acne and 5 of our kids have dealt with acne in varying degrees. I make a lot of acne stuff. My can’t-live-without-it item is my acne serum which is very simple.

I add a few drops of helichrysm EO and a few drops of galbanum EO to an Emu oil/Jojoba blend. This blend is gentle yet very healing. I use it every morning and evening.

Here are my “acne-safe” ingredients:


  • Kokum (I can use cocoa and shea on my body but both make my face break out. Kokum is the only butter that is safe for my face.)


  • Emu
  • Coconut
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Hazelnut
  • Jojoba
  • Neem

Essential Oils:

  • Helichrysm*
  • Galbanum*
  • Tea Tree
  • Lavender
  • Thyme Linalool


  • Helichrysm
  • Clove
  • Cornflower
  • Frankensense
  • Witch Hazel

Herbs and/or extracts:

  • White willow bark
  • Black willow bark
  • Neem
  • Tomato powder
  • Jaborandi leaf
  • Strawberry leaf

For the record, Neem oil stinks. If you can put up with the smell, it’s really a great oil. I’ve never found anything that masks the smell, though. The dried herb isn’t quite as bad but it still has an odor.
