The 10 Best Essential Oils for Blackheads

Before using the below essential oils, it’s important to know the best way to apply them. Panton recommends following these steps for the proper application: 

1. Begin with an oil cleanser. “It might seem counterintuitive, but using oil to clean away oily skin is actually an incredibly effective method for cleansing pores, especially blackheads,” explains Panton. “Add one drop of geranium essential oil and one drop of tea tree essential oil to one tablespoon of coconut oil, massage into the skin (avoiding the eyes), and wipe clean with a warm face cloth.” 

2. Steam your skin. “In a large bowl, add steaming hot water and three drops of lavender essential oil with two drops of sweet orange essential oil,” instructs Panton. “Place your head over the bowl and towel over your head. Close your eyes and take five deep breaths. Keep your face over the bowl for one to four minutes, depending on what feels best. The heat from the steam will help open the pores and loosen dirt and oil associated with blackheads. Opening up the pores helps remove pore buildup more effectively as well.” 

3. Apply a toner. “Using an organic cotton pad, mix warm water with one drop of grapefruit essential oil and one drop lavender essential oil to wipe the face clean after cleansing,” says Panton. “This helps remove any oil and dirt from the pores that was loosened during steaming and also helps prevent inflammation and further buildup of bacteria in the skin. Use one to three cotton pads to ensure the face remains clean and fresh and ensure to wipe around the nose, chin, and forehead where blackheads are most common.”
