Top 10 Essential Oils for Great Skin

Scented Holistic Skincare Top 10 Essential Oils

Essential oils are so good for the skin that they have been used for over 5000 years.  Can you believe that?  There is evidence of essential oils back to 3000B.C. in Egypt.

Depending on your skin type, a sure-fire way to move towards great skin is to use one or more of the essential oils below in your skincare ritual.

The easiest way to do this is to use products that already contain them.  Like my Scented Holistic Skincare range (shameless plug).

If you are new to using Essential Oils please don’t use them straight out of the bottle on your skin.  They should be properly diluted to be safe and effective.

Here are my Top 10 in no particular order.  I couldn’t rank them, I love them all too much:

Top 10 Essential oils for great skin

1. Sandalwood Essential Oil

A fabulous skin moisturiser that locks in moisture and keeps skin soft and supple.
Helps: DRY, OVER 35 Skin

2. Carrot Essential Oil

Rich in Vitamin A, Carrot is highly revitalising, adds tone and elasticity and is said to reduce wrinkles.  I wouldn’t use an anti-aging product that didn’t contain this.
Helps: DRY, SENSITIVE, OVER 35 Skin

3. Rose Essential Oil

Rose is an excellent all round skin softener and toner.  It strengthens capillaries leading to better blood flow and colour.
Helps: ALL Skin Types

4. Rosemary Essential Oil

Eases congestion of the skin and tightens pores to create finer smoother looking skin.
Helps: OILY, BREAKOUT Skin

5. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

This oil balances the production of natural oils to reduce oiliness and soothe skin.
Helps: OILY, BREAKOUT Skin

6. Immortelle Essential Oil

The name kind of says it all.  Immortelle is a supreme skin rejuvenator.  It encourages healthy blood flow and is reported to be amazing at reducing dark circles under eyes.
Helps: DRY, OVER 35 Skin

7. Chamomile Essential Oil

The ultimate in calming and soothing.  Both Roman and German Chamomile are anti-inflammatory and promote repair of damaged, aging or irritated skin.
Helps: DRY, RED, SENSITIVE, OVER 35 Skin

8. Patchouli Essential Oil

Very helpful in cooling inflamed, red or irritated skin.  Patchouli is also said to tone and tighten the skin.
Helps: RED, SENSITIVE  Skin

9. Geranium Essential Oil

A perfect all rounder.  Geranium is great if your skin is too oily or to dry or a little of both (combination).  It balances natural oil production and keeps the skin smooth and  supple.
Helps: DRY, SENSITIVE, OILY Skin

10. Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is very traditional but so so good.  It aids in skin repair for anything ranging from sunburn to sensitivity to pimples.  It is incredibly soothing and health promoting.
Helps: ALL Skin Types
