Blackhead Remedies

Many Essential Oils can be used in effective and natural blackhead remedies in an overnight treatment that will kill bacteria and remove blackheads.

You shouldn't have to resort to the expensive, super harsh and chemical-laden skin products commercially available. For example, Tea Tree oil works as well as benzoyl peroxide (a common over the counter treatment) but without the corresponding skin irritation.

Warning - Don't Go Cheap

When it comes to essential oils, cheap usually means chemically made. Check out my page on Essential Oil Quality.
