Thanks for the info. I heard Rosewood EO is great for acne, too. I just ordered some. Once I get it I plan to use it, Raw goat milk along with some of the carrier oils suggested; maybe oatmeal or some other gentle exfoliant. Depending on the strength of the Rosewood, I may have to use a tree tree or some other stronger EO to help cover the odor of the sulfur.
I actually have white willow bark and could have used it . . . but I already purchased the salicylic acid, too. I guess I have to hurry up and finish creating the list of ingredients and their benefits
I was hoping to find a tried & true recipe on-line but couldn't. So I'll have to sit and really think about this recipe. There are many natural ingredients that control acne, oily skin, soothe outbreaks, and help with blemishes. You've mentioned some, then there are honey, oatmeal, jojoba, and a host of others. I love making a nature-filled batch and I want this to be a great one, too; but I don't want to put too many things in it. Since just about every ingredient used will help with acne & oily skin, I really want to make sure I use just the right amounts of sulfur and salicylic acid . . . which I want to highlight since those with acne & oily skin will identify as ingredients good for their skin!
I want this batch to go under the heading of soaps that, "work" or "do something"!
All suggestions are welcome!
