Essential oils are from many different sources, typically plants or herbs. They are good for your health as well as helping with your skin and beauty needs. Take a look at some of these essential oils that will help to protect your skin from UV rays, get rid of acne and breakouts, and moisturize your skin naturally.
5 Essential Oils For Skin and Beauty Needs
While there are many different essential oils that you can use for skin and beauty needs, these are some of the top choices.
Essential Oils For Skin and Beauty: Ylang Ylang
When you are making your own skin or beauty products, a lot of recipes will call for Ylang Ylang. Aside from its properties, the floral scent is a favorite of many women.
This is an essential oil that is great for reducing the signs of aging. It is often found in face and hand creams, and elixirs that are supposed to help to naturally remove fine lines and wrinkles.
Individuals with acne or oily skin find it helpful as well.
Always use a carrier, e.g. almond oil, when applying the essential oil directly to your skin. Alternatively, you can add it to a fragrance-free face or hand cream.
Essential Oils For Skin and Beauty: Lemongrass
Another essential oil that is really good for your skin is lemongrass oil. Jojoba, coconut, and grapeseed oil are great options for a carrier to dilute the lemongrass essential oil.
A primary usage of lemongrass is as a skin toner for people with acne or large pores. Many store-bought skin toner products are much too harsh for your skin. Making your own with lemongrass helps with the natural skin glow without causing irritation.
Essential Oils For Skin and Beauty: Lavender
If you have skin irritation, bug bites, or burns and scrapes, try using lavender essential oil on your skin.
While some people I know will apply it ‘neat’, I highly recommend using it with a carrier oil. Alternatively, you can use witch hazel to make your own lavender body spray that is soothing and cooling.
There are a lot of recipes for making your own spritzes and sprays that use lavender to help soothe your skin and reduce the itching and soreness of burns, cuts, and scrapes.
Essential Oils For Skin and Beauty: Geranium
This essential oil is highly underrated!
Geranium oil is good for all skin types, is soothing, and is very moisturizing. It is good for skin that is sensitive or already irritated and won’t add to the irritation.
If the oil balance in your skin is keeping from a good glow and proper hydration, then geranium essential oil will be great.
You can also create a face mist by adding a few drops to a spray bottle with mineral water inside.
Essential Oils For Skin and Beauty: Frankincense
Frankincense essential oil is great for regular skin care. Those individuals with mature, prematurely aging, and environmentally challenged skin find it works wonderfully to tone and lift their skin.
Many of my friends add this essential oil to a favorite moisturizing cream. Depending upon their preferences, they often mix in a few other essential oils at the same time.
Typically 4 to 6 drops of Frankincense per ounce of carrier oil or cream is a good amount to start with, adjusting as desired. If using other essential oils at the same time, you can reduce the amount.
Recipes Using Essential Oils For Skin and Beauty Needs
When purchasing essential oils, make sure you are confident about their quality. It makes a difference. I’m always willing to talk about which company I use and how to get your own ‘wholesale’ account.
This serum takes minutes to make and costs far less than many store-bought options.
2 ounces of argan oil
4 drops of frankincense essential oil
3 drops of lavender essential oil
3 drops of geranium essential oil
Use a dark glass bottle to mix and store the serum.
When you are ready to use, just put a few drops on your clean hand and gently rub on your face using fingertips. This is best applied at night to allow it to soak in while you sleep.
Skin Toner for Oily Skin
Even some of us with ‘mature’ skin suffer from acne outbreaks. This toner can help!
1 cup Witch Hazel
3 drops Lemongrass essential oil
3 drops Tea Tree essential oil
1 drop Geranium essential oil
Mix in a dark glass bottle. You can either get a spray bottle to spritz when you use or apply to trouble spots with a cotton ball.
