Got Zits? Get rid of em!
Did you know those expensive zit sticks & creams can easily & cheaply be made at home?
Thats right for pennies you can easily make a remedy for your zits that works., all you need is some coconut oil & some essential oils & maybe a few other thing if you desire.
Essential oils: For these zit remedies I will be using Tea tree oil & Lavender essential oil because they both are great for healing & preventing blackheads & pimples but not only that they are both great for skin, disinfecting & both dry blemishes, but these essential oils can be optional if you prefer. If you would like you can also add about a few drops of Rosemary essential oil if desired or a few drops of your homemade thieves essential oil blend.
Zit cream: I like to add 1/2 cup of raw coconut oil to a small jar with 10 to 30 drops each of the 2 essential oils & use one beater on my hand mixer & mix right in the jar (Directions here). Then simply store in the jar and add a dab to blemishes & rub in as needed Optional: Add a tbsp of shea butter or another healthy oil, add a pinch or 2 of baking soda &/or corn starch, do not add to much even though they are great for drying up pimples they can leave a powder residue if you add to much, simply mix with beater.
Zit stick: I save empty chapstick containers (like these) to add the ingredients for the zit stick to. This recipe makes 3 to 2 to 3 sticks so it may take a bit of trial & error or you can just let it cool in a chunk & use that way (similar to Madeon Hard lotion). in a small pot on med/low heat melt 2 tbsp of raw coconut oil & 1 tbsp beeswax (you can buy the beeswax pelts that melt easier or grate yourself) then remove from heat & add about 15 to 20 drops of essential oil, stir allow to cool only & bit & add to tubs or on a non stick surface to dry (or even to a small jar.container). You might adjust the amounts up or down for your own desired consistency. Add a 1/8 tsp shea butter or another healthy oil, add a pinch of baking soda &/or corn starch, do not add to much even though they are great for drying up pimples they can leave a powder residue if you add to much, simply add in while mixture is still hot.

Other ways to combat zits:
Make an colloidal silver, activated charcoal & bentonite clay mask. add equal parts clay & charcoal with enough colloidal silver (or distilled water) to create a paste, apply to freshly washed damp face & allow to stay on 15 to 30 minutes & wash of with warm water & a baking soda paste if needed. You can also add any of the above essential oils or add Fixaderm.
