4. Cypress

Cypress oil is another one that has both antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties which can help clear and prevent breakouts.  Because of its ability to stimulate blood flow, cypress is good for strengthening the blood vessels and help to promote a clear and blotch and stress-free complexion.
