The use of essential oils as treatments for various illnesses has a long history. They have been used in treating stomachache, muscular pain, and even psychological disorders like depression and anxiety. Still, in this article, we will focus on 7 of the best essential oils for skin that can be used to soothe and freshen your complexion.
- Chamomile oil
Chamomile oil holds off the infections of skin imperfections like wounds, scratches, eczema, and scars. It also moisturizes the skin, keeping it supple and gives it a discreet polished shine.
- Rose oil
Apart from the fabulous odor it spreads, rose oil also acts as a tonic for the skin. It contains Citral, an antimicrobial compound that keeps your skin clear and Nerol, a natural antibiotic.
As if that wasn’t enough, it has been proven that it opens up the pores of your skin so it can get its valuable nutrients easier.
- Peppermint oil
Peppermint oil soothes the skin that has been affected by rashes, irritations, and allergies. It also has a gentle cooling effect on the skin due to its concentration of menthol. You can use it to treat your acne, too.
- Sandalwood oil
Sandalwood oil is, first of all, an excellent antiseptic and anti-inflammatory substance. Second, it disinfects and hydrates aged skin, giving it a fresh look.
Another great advantage of sandalwood oil is that it repairs the lines that appear on your face and makes your skin looks younger.
- Lemongrass oil
Just like rose oil, lemongrass oil is a skin tonic. It also prevents and treats the large, ugly pores, making your skin more elastic and graceful.
You can use it as an antioxidant and insect repellent, as well, to avoid those itchy bug and mosquito bites that produce painful rashes on your skin.
- Ylang-ylang oil
Although it’s rather hard to get your hands on it, you should definitely try to. It rejuvenates and balances the skin by adjusting it, so it’s not too oily, nor too dry.
It also functions as a healing agent by accelerating the skin’s ability to repair wounds, scratches and any other imperfections that might sabotage its overall health.
- Coriander oil
Coriander oil is a fantastic fungicidal, which means that it will prevent the inception of fungus and, subsequently, fungal infections.
It is extremely useful in treating sunburns, itchy, dry skin and in removing blackheads, as well, freshening your skin afterward.
A great advantage of these oils is that they can replace all the expensive and inefficient beauty products on your shelves. As you already know, these essential oils are 100% natural, and they come from the plants that give their name, so you shouldn’t have any doubts when it comes to their properties for your skin. Still, you should check out the sensitivity of your skin, because you might need to dilute some of these oils before using them.
