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:

Butter:

  • 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.)

Oils:

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

Essential Oils:

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

Hydrosols:

  • 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.


Don't know where to start? (cold process basics)

If you're new to soapmaking, I highly recommend "Natural Soapmaking" by Jan Berry (from TheNerdyFarmWife.com). It's perfect for beginners. I wish I'd read it before my first batch! She manages to be thorough and yet keep it simple and to the point.

I specially like her suggestions on natural colorings and how to work with botanicals and infusions. For only $9.99, you'll learn:

natural-soap-making
  • the basics of cold process soap making
  • what terms like “gel phase” and “trace” really mean
  • how to color soaps naturally with botanicals and clays
  • all about adding beneficial herbs and flowers to your soaps
  • how to use a lye calculator (it's not as hard as it seems, promise!)

For those who feel they need some extra hand-holding, her complete package also includes:

  • » All-Natural Milk Soaps Companion Guide
  • » Natural Shampoo Bars Companion Guide
  • » Printable Soap Making Checklist
  • » Instructional Guide to Lining a Soap Mold
  • » Access to a Private Facebook Group << this is priceless, IMHO
