An anti-blemish oil is a skin care product used to treat skin problems such as pimples, blackheads and excess oil.
Black cumin oil is extracted from the seeds of the Nigella sativa plant, commonly known as black cumin. It has been used in traditional medicine for centuries for its therapeutic properties. It contains fatty acids, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that can help protect and nourish the skin. It is used to treat different skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, age spots and burns. It has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which can help reduce skin blemishes such as acne. It can be combined with ingredients such as tea tree oil, neem oil, rosemary and tea tree which have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties to help reduce skin blemishes. It is generally used in combination with other skin care products for a complete treatment of acne.
Here is a simple recipe for a homemade anti-blemish oil:
- 10 drops of tea tree essential oil
- 10 drops of lavender essential oil
- 10 drops of rosemary essential oil
- 30 ml of black cumin oil
- 30ml jojoba oil
- In a clean, dark glass bottle, add the tea tree, lavender, and rosemary essential oils.
- Add the nigella and jojoba oils.
- Shake the bottle well to mix the ingredients.
- Apply a few drops to clean, dry skin before sleeping.
It is important to remember that the essential oil must be diluted before being used on the skin. It is also important to test a small area of skin before using it all over your face to make sure there is no irritation.
Finally, make sure of the dosage of Nigella oil in active ingredients. Indeed, depending on the origin and conservation, Nigella oil can be more or less dosed with Thymoquinone, a powerful anti-inflammatory!
