I have read from other sources about the benefits of sea salt for acne. I have always had really oily skin and acne, always. Have tried everything short of accutane. About two weeks ago I made a mixture of sea salt, water, lavender and rosemary oils and a touch of vegetable glycerine, and put it into a spray bottle. I have been spraying this on my face and upper back consistently and have noticed a very significant improvement. I use the spray before I apply make up, after I apply make up after I wash my face, after the shower, whenever I can.

My face seems to look a bit "glowy", my oiliness has diminished and my back is about 90% more clear. I have experienced a few zits since using this, but just the ones that come to a head right away and go away by the next day.

The only side effect I have noticed is an increased thirst.

I am just guestimating.. but I think I used about--1 tblsp of sea salt dissolved in about 4 ounces of water, and added maybe 5 drops of each oil and a drop or two of the glycerine to bind things.

Hope this helps someone!
