Bay Leaf essential oil would be an excellent addition to salves, balms and acne treatment products. You can add Bay at a small percentage, 1% or so, and still reap all the benefits. Bay Leaf essential oil is a natural astringent, which means it is effective a combatting sebum production without drying out the skin.

Create a bath soak blend using these two, add in a hydration oil like Oregon Hazelnut oil, and a powerful essential oil blend of Bay Leaf, Lavender, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile, and Rosemary. You could even add some Bentonite Clay to pull out impurities.
