Oil of oregano is a strong disinfectant. Because of this, using it directly on the skin can lead to irritation. Although some manufacturers of the oil will advise you to dilute the oil in a “carrier oil” such as olive oil, this is not a good solution for acne treatment. Oils can clog the pores and actually contribute to your acne problem.  Instead, it is best to dilute it before use. Put two to three drops in a glass of water and dab on your acne with a cotton ball. If you develop redness in your skin, discontinue using it for a few days. Then when you resume using it, mix fewer drops of the oil of oregano with water.

Oregano oil is a fantastic antimicrobial and therefore can be effectively used for treating acne, among other skin infections. Find out from the following article, how you can use oregano oil for acne.  Oregano oil and the chemicals in the oil produce antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal properties that are capable of destroying the free radicals that damage healthy cells. Acne, canker sores, and nail fungus begin to disappear when the  oregano oil used in spa treatments  is blended and used internally and externally. Asthma, gum disease, and skin infections respond to oregano oil so medical researchers are changing their opinion of this ancient oil.

The  oil of  Oregano is a powerful antiseptic. Its main ingredient is carvacrol, which many have cited for its excellent antimicrobial properties (See  this ). The Cure is in the Cupboard author Dr. Cass Ingram says “oil of oregano’s antiseptic powers are immense . . . it inhibits the growth of the majority of bacteria, something that prescription antibiotics fail to accomplish”. Its anti-inflammatory effects (Landa, et al., 2009) may also reduce the swelling in cystic acne  Oregano oil may also eradicate the fungi that target fingernails and toenails. Herbalists have long recommended oregano oil for nails afflicted by stubborn fungal infections. Even mainstream manicurists tell their clients who sport acrylic nails to dilute 1 teaspoon of oregano oil in 2 teaspoons of olive oil and apply it up to three times a day to prevent fungal growth between their real nails and the fake ones.

Lavender oil and tea tree oil are staples in my beauty kit. Lavender oil soothes the skin and heals while tea tree oil sanitizes and helps heal. I don’t know what you mean by “how long do they take to last”. You can use it in the morning at night and it should be enough. If you are asking if the oils can go bad, it would be unlikely they would go bad before you finish using up the bottles.. they last for a long time.

Tea tree oil, on the other hand, has been studied probably more than any other essential oil, as far as treating acne goes.  A few studies have shown it is as effective as benzoyl peroxide, although it takes much longer to see improvement.

Tea Tree Oil is highly recommended not just as herbal acne treatment but also for treating scratches and shallow wounds. Tea tree oil has antiseptic, and antibacterial properties which come in useful in treating acne, but since your dad has bad sinuses… then the next best thing would be Aloe Vera gel. It’s also an herbal acne treatment and can be used for its antibacterial and astringent properties too..

Tea tree oil.  It’s great.  We use it for just about everything, just be careful though, it can be quite strong.
For me, personally, Oil of Oregano has proven to be one of my most trusted and effective household remedies. I make my believe body oils and add a few drops of Oil of Oregano for topical treatments. We have used it to cure yeast infections, athletes foot, and acne. It has also done a amazing job of keeping infections at bay from a nick. We spend it instead of Neosporin. It is very important to remember to make sure it is diluted when using it on an abrasion because it will burn at first, and then numbs the spot.  You can use basil and oil of oregano topically for acne that has not responded to other remedies. For Basil, brew 2 to 3 tsp. dried leaves in 1 cup of boiling water. Keep it on heat for 20 minutes before letting it cool and applying it to areas of acne. Utilize oregano oil  by putting two drops in a glass of water. Mix and apply to acne with a cotton ball. Oregano is strong disinfectant, advises Health 911, so if your skin turns red, you need to stop using it for two or three days, then try again with a more diluted solution.  Never use pure oregano oil undiluted either internally or externally. Also do not forget to do a patch test on the inner aspect of your skin to make sure you’re not allergic to it.
