The top 8 essential oils for skincare:
Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense essential is soothes and beautifies skin. It rejuvenates and helps reduce the appearance of imperfections. As the king of oils, Frankincense is known to support healthy cellular function. It is also a natural toner, decreasing the appearance of pores and evening skin-tone. It is cytophylactic, which means that it helps protect existing cells and encourages new cell growth. For this reason, it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Geranium Essential Oil
Geranium essential oil helps support proper oil production, which may reduce breakouts. It also helps support skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It also promotes blood circulation to the areas where it is applied. Geranium promotes the appearance of clear skin and healthy hair.
Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender essential oil is one I suggest no one goes without — it smells amazing, helps you relax and your body adapt to stress, and has great benefits for the skin. It helps support the regenerate of skin cells so is great for infant to mature skin. Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and to soothe occasional skin irritations.
Myrrh Essential Oil
Myrrh essential oil greatly benefits aging skin. It helps support skin tone, firmness, and skin elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also soothing to the skin—promoting a smooth, youthful-looking complexion—especially after long hours in the sun.
Patchouli Essential Oil
Patchouli essential oil is particularly great for aging skin. It supports the production of new cell growth and it is often used to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, and minor skin imperfections and to promote a smooth, glowing complexion.
Melaleuca Essential Oil
Melaleuca essential oil is one of the more well-known essential oils for problem skin. It can be used to cleanse and purify the skin and nails and to support a healthy complexion. It also helps support proper oil production, which may minimize breakouts.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Ylang Ylang is often used to support healthy skin and hair, while simultaneously providing a calming effect and promoting a positive outlook. It is helps support proper oil production, which can minimize breakouts. It also helps supports regeneration of skin cells, smooths the appearance of fine lines and skin elasticity. Another great essential oil for every skin type.
HD Clear Essential Oil Blend
This potent formula can be applied to targeted areas on the face and body. The essential oils in HD Clear are not only used for their well-known benefits, they are also soluble through lipids in the skin, allowing for perfect absorption and effectiveness. HD Clear Topical Blend promotes a clear, smooth complexion for skin of all ages. Apply a thin layer to targeted areas on the skin, or use as a spot treatment. Dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
Some important essential oil guidelines to remember:
Essential oils may be diluted in a carrier oil to a maximize their benefits. I love Fractionated Coconut Oil, dilute about 1 teaspoon to 1-3 drops essential oil. Be sure to do a patch test to make sure your skin does not have an adverse reaction to the oils (highly unlikely). The inner forearm is a great place to do a test since the skin is delicate, similar to facial skin.
