Post Hormones & Acne
I know that hormonal imbalance is one of the main causes of acne. Do you have any suggestions as to which oils to take to fix this imbalance? Also, is it better to balance hormones through applying oils topically or taking them internally? Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi,

Sometimes Clary Sage is used to balance estrogen deficiency by women for 'mature' skin, but that's as far as is generally found in the literature. EO's are most often used for their anti-bacterial qualities for acne treatment, for which we would recommend 5% 'Benchmark' Thyme in Grapeseed oil (a mildly-astringent carrier) and/or Coconut oil (with its own anti-bacterial properties - though needs to be above 70degF to be liquid).

Cheers,
Eric
