Do you, or someone you know, suffer from acne? If so, you (or they) aren’t alone. In fact, according to Brown University, approximately 17 million Americans suffer from acne. Knowing you’ve got company probably doesn’t make you feel much better about your acne… am I right? Well, what if I told you there was an incredible homemade acne spot treatment that could zap your zits like that (imagine me snapping my fingers right there 🙂 )? This article details how to make the best homemade acne treatment around.
You may be asking “why should I care about good homemade acne treatments when I can just pick something up at the store?” It’s true. The store shelves are lined with acne treatments all claiming to be the best at zapping zits and soothing skin. However, not only are these store bought goods expensive, they’re filled with unpronounceable ingredients that can be pretty rough on skin.
This recipe for the best homemade acne treatment is a great solution for any acne sufferer. It zaps zits without exposing your skin to the harsh chemicals found in many store bought varieties. It is easy to make (just 3 steps!) and doesn’t require any expensive or difficult to find ingredients, which is great because you may have an unexpected flare-up where a homemade acne spot treatment is a must-have.
Go ahead, give it a try! You’ll quickly realize why I labeled this the best homemade acne treatment.

1. Choose an airtight, glass jar to hold your zit zapper, these 4 oz. mason jars are a perfect size.
2. Soften coconut oil just slightly in jar (10 to 15 seconds in the microwave should do it).
3. Stir in essential oils.
4. Place in refrigerator to set.
To use: dab a cotton swab in zit zapper and apply a dab to acne in the morning and evening after washing and drying your face well.
If coconut oil is in a warm room it may soften, it is still good. You can keep it in refrigerator if you prefer a solid mixture.

Do you like to use homemade beauty products and homemade cleaners? I love the ability to make products to use in my home that are all natural and safe which is why I am a big fan of essential oils. Young Living essential oils are my favorite oils because they are some of the best essential oils on the market. I also appreciate that Young Living guarantees no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of their oils, and that they are the only company that has their own farms, so they can ensure the quality of their oils.
