DIY Herbal Acne Remedy

Herbal Acne Remedy

Acne has been a problem for so many people.   In fact, there are so many acne remedies on the market that many don’t know where to start.   There are commercials with celebrities endorsing acne medicines that are so costly, and from what people I know have told me, they only have marginal success.   Acne is painful and to many people suffer with it.

DIY Herbal Acne Remedy
Echinacea Purpurea Root Is Part Of This Acne Remedy

I developed this DIY Herbal Acne remedy with cooling in mind.   I have seen it work very well for people who have painful acne where they were not able to get results with other acne products.   In shamanistic terms, I would say that it is designed to “Put out the fire” for those who have infected acne and feel that their face is literally on fire.

Of course, all of this is according to herbal folklore, and you should always consult your doctor before taking any herbal or pharmaceutical medicine.

Herbs For Acne

The components of this remedy are Echinacea Purpurea root, Chamomile flowers and Stinging Nettles leaves.   As with anything, some folks are allergic to these herbs and if you are, you will need to find something else.   When in doubt, ask your doctor.  Echinacea and Chamomile are both part of the Asteraceae family.   If you are allergic to Asteraceae, don’t use this.

You will need a ¼ cup of each herb for my DIY Herbal Acne Remedy.

Here is my video on how to make this DIY Herbal Acne Remedy:


Take the Echinacea root and add it to a pot with 1 ½ cups of water.    Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

After the 30 Minutes, remove the pot from the heat and stir in the Chamomile and Stinging Nettles.

Cover and let the mixture infuse for at least 4 hours, over night preferred.
The next morning, strain your Herbal Acne Remedy into a bowl, retaining the liquid.  I like to use a cheese cloth or jelly bag.    Then, squeeze every drop of your Acne Remedy out .

Compost the herbs and give thanks for their contribution to your herbal healing.

Now, the liquid will last up to 3 days.   You should have around a cup of liquid.   What I recommend is taking an Ice Cube tray and filling the tray half full with the Acne Remedy.   After freezing, remove the ice cube from the tray and store in a ziplock in your freezer.  Defrost one every three days, and you will be good to go for a longer period of time.

I recommend using this herbal medicine for acne by using it topically, as you would a toner.   Use a cotton ball and wet it with your homemade herbal acne medicine and put it on the infected area.   You can also mix it with some clay powder to make an herbal acne mask.  Please refer to my video for details.

I wish you the greatest success with this DIY herbal acne remedy.  Please take the time to teach these herbalism skills to your children and friends.  Sharing is caring.   Help and teach others how to heal themselves.
