Our Blemish Treatment is designed to address cystic acne and breakouts in two different ways: first, by effectively healing and treating the breakout and second, by aromatically reducing stress, a primary cause of inflammation and skin flare ups. Each plant featured in the Blemish Treatment was carefully chosen to reduce inflammation and swelling in order to support healthy skin functioning, create a healthy flora/microbe balance, and prevent scarring.
– All skin types - especially blemish prone skin.
– 100% Whole Plant Organic
– 7 Beneficial Active Ingredients
– Size: 10ml
First, cleanse, tone, and moisturize skin normally. Then, apply 1 drop to fingertip and use that solitary drop amongst all skin blemishes, irritations, and breakouts. While this product is safe to use during the daytime, we recommend using this product at night for best results.
Use within 6 months of opening and within 18 months of the manufacture date, found on the bottom of the bottle.
* This product does contain a very high percentage of essential oils. Keep in mind our 1 drop recommendation, because it is truly all that is needed to be effective. Depending on one’s own comfort level with essential oil usage, it’s good to keep in mind that high levels of most essential oils are often not recommended during pregnancy.
Science: There are many different types of breakouts, and most are not really ‘acne’. The term acne, commonly used to address all forms of breakouts, pimples, cysts, etc., actually stems from a bacterial strain called Propionibacterium acnes. There are so many anti-bacterial cleansers and toners out there that are made to kill this bacteria (and any other strain) on contact, and yet so many have ‘acne’ that doesn’t improve. We actually have beneficial flora living on our skin which helps to keep any harmful bacteria balanced, so wiping all of it out with anti-bacterial products can be harmful. The real root cause of all breakouts is inflammation, so digging deep to discover why we are inflamed is essential in improving skin health.
For more surface level breakouts, while our Blemish Treatment definitely does inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, we instead recommend a product to simply dry or draw them out. Our Detox Mask is an excellent choice and can also be used as a spot treatment. But for those of you suffering from deeper cystic acne, this Blemish Treatment is everything. It dramatically reduces swelling, redness, and inflammation, deeply accelerating the healing process.
Ritual: Stress and acne. Self-love and acne. These are real! Breathe deeply. Make time for valiant acts of self-love. As cheesy as it may sound it is a real thing that if you seek out your flaws in a mirror and reflect back self-hatred that cannot lead to anything good. Accept where you are now, breakouts and all. Treasure your skin, treasure your body; and look after them with great care. Give yourself all the love and it will help more than anything else possibly can.
Black Cumin Seed Oil – This uniquely nutritious oil is very effective against acne bacterial strains, while also being highly anti-inflammatory. Its anti-inflammatory benefits are specific to acne and even allergies (which often also play a role in acne formation).
Tamanu Oil – There is no replacement for the deep cool green Tamanu oil, which is a sacred ancient plant medicine of the tropics. It is anti-inflammatory, wound healing, antibacterial, stimulates skin immunity, and has a unique phytonutrient profile specific to skin healing and scar prevention and repair.
Thyme – Earthy Thyme essential oil has been proven to be more effective at treating acne than Benzoyl Peroxide without harming healthy skin flora. It restores balance to our delicate microbiome.
German Blue Chamomile – Azulene rich German Chamomile is a cooling and potent anti-inflammatory plant. It calms and soothes the skin and offers instant relief.
Helichrysum – This little yellow flower is as gentle as it is potent. It reduces redness and swelling. It strengthens tissues and supports cellular healing activity, and prevents and reduces the appearance of scars.

Laurel Whole Plant Organics is a flower and herb based facial care line, firmly rooted in mindful beauty rituals, taking purity and efficacy to a new level by using the highest quality, artisan ingredients. A 100% organic, raw, unrefined, whole plant line, Laurel sources directly from bio-dynamic farms, handcrafting each product with love, integrity and unparalleled purity. Every formula is alcohol and water free, and made using the purest, most effective vibrant plants. Whether in spa or at home, Laurel Whole Plant Organics believes beauty should be a loving ritualistic practice that begins with nurturing self-care.
Our promise to our customers and ourselves is to never use parabens, synthetic fragrances, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, GMOs, non-organically grown plants, or any toxic chemical of any kind. Laurel WPO is committed to your health, well-being and your beautiful skin. It is a common misconception that putting toxins on your face is actually good for your skin – we beg to differ. A synthetic antioxidant in the presence of an abundance of carcinogens isn’t even remotely as powerful as pure antioxidants found in whole plants. Your skin can only handle so much harsh chemical treatment, before it starts to become harmful to your skin.
The Laurel line is also about taking time to care for yourself. We are strongly rooted in the spa and resort industry, which has taught us that slowing down and taking time to have a cup of tea and take a bath, really does take years off for the mind, body, and spirit. Everything we do is done with love; from the season it takes to grow our plants, to the months our handmade blends sit steeping, to the minutes we spend bottling a batch. From the farm to the lab – the whole making process is done with love and care, and you will feel that when you use our products. Make your skin care routine something you take time to do for yourself and it will be that much more powerful.
