Essential Oils

 

 

Essential Oils have been used by the ancients for thousands of years for medicinal purposes as well as cosmetic. Cleopatra used essential oils in her beauty routine daily, and Egyptian mummification processes used specific oils such as , myrrh, camphor, beeswax,pine trees and fir for their drying and anti- bacterial properties.

 

 

Modern naturalists use these same essential oils in skin care today. There are 4  essential oils that when used on the skin rebuild and restore function naturally.

 

These oils have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, renewal , restoring and calming effects on the skin. No matter what your skin concern is, these oils can help balance and improve overall skin function.

 

When using essential oils always mix them with a “carrier oil” such as a  cold pressed vegetable oil or base oil such as coconut, vitamin E, apricot, safflower,  flax or jojoba.

 

 

 

Camomile

The Calming  Oil

 

Camomile is great for skin that is sensitive. If your skin is red, irritated, dry and flaky, Camomile soothes and calms. Camomile is a treatment for eczema and psoriasis. Roman Camomile is excellent for reducing inflammation, skin abrasion and promotes healing.

 

 

 

Geranium

The Oil Of Balance

 

Geranium is  used as an astringent and antiseptic and balances sebaceous oil flow helping control excessive oily, dry or combination skins. Geranium is an aromatic anti inflammatory. Less is more when it comes to using Geranium, it can be very overpowering, balance it out with other essential oils such as clary sage, basil, grapefruit, lavender, lemon and lime.

 

 

 

Sandalwood

The Precious Oil

This oil has become closely controlled by the government of East India. The tree’s oil cannot be expelled until the heartwood tree is 30 years old. This has caused a shortage of this precious oil world-wide.

Sandalwood is a great healer to the skin as well as being valued for it’s anti- inflammatory and anti- infectious properties .Once made into an emollient  Sandalwood is perfect in treating mature dry skin, dehydration, itching, dermatitis, irritation, rosacea and sensitive skin.

Frankincense

The Anti-Aging Oil

Frankincense promotes skin renewal of damaged human cells and skin tissue. Frankincense is the “go to” essential oil for mature skin, alleviating fine lines and wrinkles along with lifting and firming the skin. As a mild astringent, is also constricts and contracts the skin.

 

“The skin provides and interface to the world. It reflects a person’s emotional state and can indicate levels of stress, anxiety, lost love and spiritual crisis.”

Adding essential oils to your skin care routine not only effects your skin , these oils will directly effect mood and well being. ~~~

    I love essential oils. I used carrot seed oil in my sunscreen and moisturizer. It’s nice stuff 🙂 I’ve heard really good things about frankincense, I’ll have to give that a shot.

      Hi Bekah, I never heard of carrot seed in sunscreen and moisturizer, great idea!!!! Frankincense is an amazing scared oil. You can use Frankincense as an anti-inflammatory, anti- depressant,antiseptic, anti-tumor- expectorant, immune stimulant and sedative. It works with EmotionalBalance, Immune and Nervous Systems and the skin. Thanks!!
