Essential Oils How To Use - Aromatherapy Skin Care

Filed under: General Aromatherapy Articles, Skincare — Administrator @ 8:43 am

Stumble it!

First, please remember that Essential Oils should never be applied neat (undiluted) to your skin. There are absolutely NO exceptions to this! This includes the soles of your feet or palms of your hands. When using oils neat for inhalation purposes please exercise care and dispense your oils on a tissue or cotton ball for direct inhalation.

AROMATHERAPY Skin Care METHODS FOR FACIAL CLEANSING AND CELLULAR RENEWAL:

FACIAL STEAM ~ As part of a deep cleansing routine disperse 3 to 5 drops of Essential Oil in a teaspoon of milk or honey and mix into a pint of steaming hot water.

Pour this “HOT” mixture into a stainless steel mixing bowl and lean with your face forward, over the bowl being sure to cover your head with a towel to catch the steam on your face.

Breath in the steam and relax, enjoying your facial steam until the waters cool.

Or you may use your oils in a facial steamer.

PLEASE NOTE: Essential Oils are not water soluble you must use a dispersant when adding them to a facial steam or bath. Water may cause the oils to penetrate your system more quickly or cause irritation to sensitive or damaged skin, i.e. blemishes, sores or rash.

FACIAL MASQUE ~ Add 2-3 drops of Essential Oils to moistened Clay, honey, mashed Avocado, or egg white.

Dampen your face lightly and apply your facial masque. Leave on for 10-15 minutes until your masque begins to dry and harden slightly.

Wash your facial masque thoroughly off your face. Your face will look and feel more toned, fresh and hydrated. Repeat once a week for healthy and toned skin!

FACIAL Oil Blend ~ Add up to 10 drops of Essential Oil blend, depending upon your skin type, to one ounce of your favorite Carrier Oil. I prefer Certified Organic Filtered and Unscented Jojoba oil which is most like your skin’s own natural sebum.

Frankincense is good for all skin types. German Chamomile is excellent for sensitive skin. Rose is wonderful for mature skin, as is Frankincense.

Apply your facial Oil Blend lightly to target areas for intensive therapy to nourish and heal facial skin.

SKIN BRUSHING ~ Invigorates your skin, and stimulates your lymphatic system.

Apply 1 drop of (Lavender, Frankincense, Rose or Geranium – all are excellent for Skin Care) in 1 Tablespoon of honey and apply mixture to your natural bristle skin brush and brush your skin.

Make sure your gentle, yet brisk brush strokes are upward, toward your heart. Brush your entire body from the tips of your toes and fingers to the top of your shoulders. Include the front and back sides of your body as you breathe deeply.

Enjoy the wonderful tingling sensations dancing across your skin. Always be sure to work from your extremities upwards, toward your heart. Gently, yet briskly, cover your entire body, omitting your face and neck in the process of this cleansing and uplifting ritual. Skin brushing is especially effective just before you shower.

Properly administered Essential Oils are a natural, safe and effective way to enhance your health and well-being and can produce satisfying results where other methods have failed. Please consult with your physician regarding your health concerns.

PLEASE NOTE: There are many cheap chemical copies of Essential Oils available, but these are not recommended for therapeutic use. For best results always use ethically wild crafted or pure, Organic Essential Oils that are pesticide free!

Summertime Skin Care

Filed under: Oil Blends For Beauty, Skincare — Administrator @ 8:39 am

Stumble it!

Skin Care in the summertime can be just as much of a challenge as other times of the year. Not only do we need to replenish the moisture, we need to keep it there. Typically your skin has enough sebum to keep the moisture in and your skin nice and soft. During the summer months we are exposed to many elements that can remove or limit the amount of our natural oils our body has available.

Sunlight is very important to our health. It helps our bodies function properly by stimulating our metabolism, hormonal systems and of course to make Vitamin D, just to name a few of its many pluses.

Over exposure and getting a sunburn is not good and can actually do a lot of damage to your skin. Sunburn can cause mild redness, all the way to blisters. Repeated sunburns can lead to scarring, discolorations, wrinkled skin as we age and worse yet, skin Cancer.

One way to protect your skin is to eat a very good diet high in Essential Fatty Acids – you know Omega 3’s. Please note that Essential Fatty Acids and Essential Oils are NOT the same!!

Now on to other ways to protect your skin. A good Carrier Oil for the summer months is Jojoba . It is the liquid wax that is most like our skins natural oil – sebum. Therefore, applying this after cleaning your skin is very important.

If you are a gardener or work outdoors, you know how many times your hands, knees, etc. get dirty in an hour and how many times you are washing your hands. (Okay, maybe you use gloves, unlike me that usually uses her bare hands!) Even if you do wear gloves your still have wear and tear on your skin. Applying a few drops to your clean hands before and after gardening will help preserve your skin.

Essential Oils that may help to stimulate your bodies own production of sebum are Geranium , Lavender and Sandalwood. Adding a drop of two of each of these oils to your daily face or hand cream or lotion may be all you need to do.

Jasmine, Neroli and Rose Otto are great Essential Oils for Skin Care. These are good for all types of skin but especially for mature and aging skin.

Other oils good Carrier Oils for your skin are Hazelnut oil, Sesame oil , Wheat germ oil and Vitamin E. The Wheat germ and Vitamin E should be mixed with other Carrier Oils as only minute amounts of these are needed.

If you have spent too much time out in the sun and do get sunburned a quick and easy help is to simply mix 5-10 drops of Lavender in to 1 ounce of Aloe Vera. Aloe is well known for its use with burns. Lavender helps to lessen the pain and to quickly heal the skin.

Remember to drink plenty of water during the summer. Hot, windy days evaporate the moisture from our skin quickly and so we need to replace the inner moisture often.

After bathing and swimming be sure to apply a good moisturizing lotion or cream to lock in and hold your skin moisture.

A good summertime blend that is good to help your skin stimulate its own natural production of sebum. This blend can be used everyday. You only need a few drops for your entire face.

Blend this well. Apply to face and exposed skin to help keep it from drying when exposed to the sun and wind. You will only need a few drops of this blend. If you feel there is too much Essential Oils and it makes the scent too strong simply add another tablespoon of Sunflower oil to dilute down, or cut the Essential Oils amounts in half.

Soothing Sun burn Bath

In a tub of cool water add

Place the oils in the tub of cool water. Soak for fifteen to twenty minutes. Do not rub the burned areas. You can repeat this bath every few hours until the pain subsides. Add a few ice cubes to the water if you want to keep the water cool. Use a small cup to gently poor water over hard to soak areas.

Essential Oil Blend For Acne

Filed under: Oil Blends For Beauty, Skincare — Administrator @ 11:13 am

Stumble it!

Ingredients:

or without bergamot:

Special Precaution: *Avoid exposure to the sun for at least 12 hours after applying this oil since Bergamot is a phototoxic oil. There is a special version of Bergamot that you can get called “bergaptene free” that eliminates the phototoxic properties of the oil.

Directions:

Pour the selected Carrier Oil into a very clean bottle (amber glass is best) and then add the Essential Oils and tightly close the bottle. Roll the bottle to gently mix the oils for a minute or two. Apply a small amount to the face, neck or back, but be certain to avoid the eyes, lips, nostrils and inside the ears. Gentle roll the bottle before each use to ensure the Essential Oils are properly mixed.
