• Make Your Own Acne Treatment Stick

    Make your own acne treatment stick - Biome Naked Beauty Bar - DIY skin careOur DIY acne treatment stick, which combines healing beeswax, calming shea butter, and antibacterial coconut oil and essential oils, can be applied on any pimple or breakout-prone area to naturally soothe and heal.

    Below we’ve outlined the benefits of each of the ingredients used.

    Beeswax is healing and high in Vitamin A.

    Shea Butter reduces inflammation that occurs with pimples.

    Coconut Oil is antifungal and antibacterial, reducing redness and puffiness.

    Tea Tree has been clinically shown to reduce the number and severity of pimples when applied daily for 45 days.

    Lavender Oil has antibacterial, antiseptic, and scar-lessening properties.

    Eucalyptus Oil can eliminate P. acnes, the bacteria responsible for most kinds of acne.

    Rosemary Oil has pain relieving properties, which sometimes occurs with large pimples.

    Make Your Own Acne Treatment Stick



    1. Melt the beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil together in a glass jug over a simmering saucepan of water.
    2. Once melted, add your essential oils and mix quickly.
    3. Pour the mixture into lip balm containers or kraft tubes for ease of use. Allow to cool and set.

    How To Use

    Simply apply every time a pimple appears.

    Tip: Make up a few to have on hand at home, school or work.

    This recipe makes enough to fill two large kraft tubes (pictured).


    As with all our DIY recipes, you can experiment to suit your preferences. Many factors can change the end result, including temperature, humidity, light, ingredient quality. Some DIYs can be amended by remelting or adding ingredients, but some cannot. Please read the whole recipe before beginning and remember to have fun!

    Biome cannot issue a refund if the DIY skin care product, DIY hair care product or DIY body care product you make using our raw DIY ingredients do not perform as you’d hoped. We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off’.

    Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient’s potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.

    If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you’ve made yourself, or commercially formulated product.

    Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
