Essential oils, as we all know, have a myriad uses. While some are used for aromatherapy, others can be applied to your skin to deliver mega-moisture or soothe blemishes. Note that pure formulations are very powerful, so it's important to heavily dilute them with carrier oils before topical application (ideally, mix 2-3 drops of any essential oil with a carrier oil like almond or argan oil. Here are the best essential oils, essential oil blends and essential oil bases in the market that you can try.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil is one of the best essential oils for blemish-prone skin. Derived from the eponymous tea tree, it's best known for fighting acne and fungal infections. For clearer skin in just a few days, you can apply it to problem areas directly without any dilution.
The Plant Therapy Synergy Essential Oil Blend is a multi-use formulation that contains Lavender, Frankincense Serrata, Lemon, Petitgrain, Coriander, Turmeric, and Rose extracts. Use it in an aroma diffuser for stress/headache relief, or apply it to your skin after diluting it to 2% with your favourite creams or carrier oils. (Do not use this one undiluted.)
