Post Carrier for eo's other than oil?
I have skin that is very prone to clogged pores and acne. I have not had great luck using any oils on my skin. I am wondering if there are other effective carriers for my essential oils such as a vinegar or aloe or even water? Would this change the properties of the eo's?
Working up the courage to use oil on my face again, but in the mean time...

Hi,

Have you used either grapeseed or hazelnut - the oils with astringent properties most commonly used for acne?

Otherwise, vodka may be the best choice!

I used hazelnut oil years ago and got some clogged pores. It may be time to try it again though. Are water bases like hydrosols poor carriers for eo's? I guess they don't really disperse...
