Homemade Spot Stopper Recipe

Essential Oils UK

Spot Stopper, as the name implies, is all about curbing the development of a spot before it can emerge as a very large, pulsating pustule!

The ingredients in Spot Stopper have been selected for their antiseptic, astringent and anti-bacterial actions, which, when combined, offer the body’s own defenses a significant boost.

Stop Spots With Spot Stopper

The Spot Stopper recipe has been created for you to make at home.

One drop should be massaged into the affected area and should ideally be used the moment the sensation of a pimple is felt, or when the first signs of reddening and skin elevation occur.

It is easier to eliminate the bacteria in a small pimple, than it is to deal with copious amounts of bacteria in a fully formed spot.

Spot Stopper Can Reduce Scarring

If pimples are allowed to grow to their full size, as opposed to being nipped in the bud by Spot Stopper, the chances of scarring are much greater. No0t only are the spots more evident on the outside when they reach their full potential, but they also go deeper into the infected pore or follicle, causing a much more intense infection that will inevitably leave the skin either pocked or with a certain amount of scar tissue.

Spot Stopper Ingredients

All of the essential oil ingredients are available individually from Wild As The Wind.

You can simplify the recipe by adding one single citrus essential oil instead of two; I recommend using Bergamot FCF Essential Oil instead of Lemon because unlike Lemon Essential Oil, Bergamot FCF Essential Oil is not photo-toxic.

Photo-toxicity means most citrus essential oils cannot be worn on the skin in direct sunlight.

The next optional ingredient is Tea Tree Essential Oil. There is so much antibacterial activity going on in this recipe that if you left the Tea Tree Essential Oil out it wouldn’t be the end of the world.

The final optional ingredient is Lavender Essential Oil, but because you are most likely to have Lavender Essential Oil and Tea Tree Essential Oil out of all the essential oils listed, feel free to add them.

Make sure that your overall essential oil content doesn’t exceed a 3% dilution.

*Some aromatherapists consider a 7% essential oil dilution, in your carrier oil of choice, completely safe, but most will not recommend a dilution higher than 5%.

A 3% dilution is still pretty strong and should do the job more than adequately, especially if you apply your mixture the moment you feel a spot beginning to form..

Why Do We Get Spots?

The root cause of spots is stress.

We experience stress in many ways. Sometimes the stress on the body is because we are not feeding it the nutrients it needs in order to function properly, or sometimes we are feeding it foods that it is allergic to, or intolerant of…

Quite often the stress is mental or emotional…

Other causes of stress in the body are the toxic substances found within our food and our environment.

These include:

Heavy metals

Hormone disrupting substances

As well as causing spots all of these toxic substances found within our food and our environment are also making us ill at a systemic / cellular level.

They also ensure weight gain, and resistant weight loss.

Applying Spot Stopper

As mentioned, I recommend applying Spot Stopper the moment you feel a spot brewing, or at the first sign of skin discolouration, which usually denotes the emergence of a pimple.

Wash hands before use, and dry them thoroughly.

Allow one drop of the Spot Stopper formula to drop onto the tip of your index finger and immediately apply it to the affected area.

Reapply twice daily.

Clarifying Your Skin

You can also apply Spot Stopper whilst the face is still hot, and the pores are still open, after steaming the face.

Place boiling water in a bowl and then hang your head, face down, above the steaming water with a towel over your head, extending the edges of the towel to reach down around the outside of the bowl.

The point of using the towel is to capture the steam within the tent created by the towel. This allows the steam to collect, and the heat levels to intensify, thereby opening up the pores of the face.

Keep your face as close to the bowl of hot water as is possible.

Keep your eyes shut!

It is helpful to place one or two drops of Spot Stopper to the bowl of boiled water before steaming the face.

After three to five minutes of steaming, when you feel as though your pores are fully open, remove the towel and apply a drop of Spot Stopper to your emerging pimples as quickly as possible.

*Spot Stopper is suitable for use on the face and on other areas of the body. It is also useful for arresting the development of boils.

Spot Stopper And Boils

Boils tend to occur when an individual is:

  • run down
  • addicted to sugar
  • inclined towards eating a nutrient deficient diet
  • or has been, exposed to high levels of toxins
  • susceptible to blocked hair follicles and pores
  • practicing poor levels of hygene
  • all of the above

Carrot Seed Oil Essential Oil is particularly efficient at dealing with boils, but the citrus essential oils, (Lemon Essential Oil and Bergamot FCF Essential Oil) are also excellent at dealing with boils as they emerge.

As with your pimples, apply as soon as a boil starts to make it’s presence felt, and reapply twice daily.

It is even more important to apply warmth to the boil to ensure Spot Stopper is absorbed fully.

It is, therefore, preferable to apply it immediately after bathing whilst the skin is very hot, or to place two or three drops of Spot Stopper to a damp cloth that is steaming hot. (Place your cloth in very hot water whilst wearing rubber gloves. Wring out the cloth thoroughly after keeping it submerged in the very hot water for twenty to thirty seconds.)
