I completely agree, Lavender or Rosemary would be the way to go. I personally like lavender, although some people dislike the smell. Applying essential oil neat (without a base) is too strong for me, so I usually add two drops per tablespoon of base.lavender oil is really great for oily skin. it kills bacteria and i use it a lot in my own skin care. you can either use it straight or even added to an unscented face wash or add a few drops to distilled water to use as a toner. although, make sure you aren't sensitive to essential oils first.
