Did you know that essential oils can be great for your skin?
Essential oils are highly concentrated vegetable oils extracted from plants. Depending on the plant they come from, essential oils can have different functions. That's right, they are incredible!
There are many types of oils available and, when combined, they can bring synergistic benefits among them.
In cosmetic applications, essential oils aid in the manutention of the skin.
Because they are highly concentrated, you absolutely can't apply these oils directly to your skin.
The right way of using essential oils is by adding a small amount of them to natural vegetable oil, moisturizer, masks, or clay.
If your skin is dry, bet on patchouli, chamomile, jasmine, and rose oil. But, if you are on the oily side, go for lavender, sandalwood, cedarwood, cypress, sage, or anything with an astringent and drying action.
If your skin has spots, vetiver works as an anti-inflammatory and is the most indicated oil for lightening dark spots of melasma, chloasma, and general hyperpigmentation.
Frankincense oil acts as an antioxidant, fighting free radicals and premature aging, which slows down the appearance of skin spots.
