Essential Oils For Beauty



When using essential oils to moisturize the skin, simply add to a carrier oil such as Jojoba. Another good tip is to purchase fragrance and lanolin free creams or lotions, from which you can create your own skin care products by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil.

The key to developing your own products is to determine what you want them to do. Are you trying to fight cellulite? Then add some Lemon oil to your cream. Are you trying to minimize the appearance of scar tissue? Patchouli is your answer here. See our for the body listings to find out more about the properties and effects of each essential oil.

  1. Yes, essential oils are some of the most powerful healing substances in skin care as they penetrate deep into the skin and also affect our organs. They help heal the skin much deeper than just superficially. I wish more people would understand how synthetic skin care lotions and creams only help ruin our skin and ultimately also our health.
