I absolutely love using essential oils to improve the health and appearance of my skin. One reason is because I know the huge improvements I’ve seen are a result of nature’s healing power. The second reason, my wallet! The price of a few drops of essential oils added to a carrier oil is teeny-tiny when compared to the small fortune I have spent on expensive products that upset my skin and didn’t provide the desired results.
After working as a skincare professional for the last 14 years, I’ve found that the pure therapeutic quality essential oils provide the results I am looking for without the skin irritation and hefty price tag, and I walk around all day smelling amazing!
Their are so many spectacular skin benefits packed into these 3 oils that I thought I better provide some basic information on each of the oils included, why we chose them and a few practical uses and recipes for each oil. So, let’s get glowing!
For thousands of years, people have used Frankincense oil to lift, tone and tighten their skin, prevent wrinkles, correct uneven pigmentation, reduce dark spots and pore size, heal and prevent acne and slow the signs of aging. Others used it to strengthen and add shine to their hair. Others used Frankincense for its power to heal wounds, rash, eczema, burns, cuts and scrapes as well as soothe dry and chapped skin. It’s even used to reduce new and old scars and stretch marks.
Not only that, but Frankincense is a natural astringent that helps regenerate healthy cells and keep existing tissue healthy and strong. It is this power to protect and repair skin cells that makes Frankincense your most powerful anti-aging essential oil, and it’s so easy to use!
Frankincense essential oil not only has a gorgeous woody aroma, it has powerful anti-aging and skin rejuvenating effects! Simply adding a few drops of Frankincense essential oil to your existing moisturizer, shampoo, body lotion, or virtually any other beauty product, is all you need to reap the countless benefits of this ancient healing oil.
Most people know Lavender because of its soothing and uplifting fragrance, but most are unaware that Lavender is an extremely powerful healing and cleansing oil. Packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to regenerate skin cells, Lavender is truly a healing oil.
Acne is no match for Lavender, as it is an antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial oil. Lavender oil inhibits the bacteria that causes acne, calms inflammation, regulates oil production, reduces redness and helps the skin to heal free of scars. Eczema, Psoriasis and burns also benefit from these healing qualities of Lavender.
Detoxify, heal and revitalize your skin by simply adding a few drops to your skincare products or to a carrier oil and keep a glass container or in the first aide kit for minor cuts and scrapes. Lavender essential oil is safe for all skin types to use and smells amazing!
Behold, the power of Tea Tree!
This therapeutic quality essential oil is a powerhouse of antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties, ready to remedy some of the most stubborn of skin issues.
Tea Tree oil’s ability to destroy bacteria on contact makes it a very effective acne spot treatment, cut and scrape cleanser and makeup remover, but it also has the power to zap warts, corns and cold sores (but avoid ingesting it, as it can give you a wicked stomach ache).
Tea Tree oil is especially handy to have around because it can be used from head to toe. It can combat foot odor, kill athlete’s foot or treat nail fungus as well as heal dry scalp, dandruff and psoriasis. Tea Tree is truly a full body oil that heals and nourishes your skin and hair, leaving you smelling like you just left the day spa.
Simply dilute a few drops of Tea Tree oil into your hair and skincare products, or mix up one of these super easy and effective skincare recipes to experience the amazing benefits of Tea Tree.
Note: Tea Tree oil is very strong. Perform a patch test and dilute in a carrier oil if necessary
1% dilution (1 drop per teaspoon of carrier oil; 5-6 drops per ounce) – for children over age 6, pregnant women, elderly adults, those with sensitive skin, compromised immune systems, or other serious health issues. This is also the dilution you want when you are making an massage lotion or spreading oil over a large area of the body.
