As someone who has not used skincare products with essential oils before, or someone who knows little about essential oils, you may not care if you daily moisturizer contains tea tree oil. Alternatively, you may have sensitive or oily skin, and the thought of putting chemicals or more oil on your skin is a big no-no.
We are here to tell you that essential oils are not your skin’s worst nightmare, but can be beneficial to you no matter your skin type or condition. All natural, botanical essential oils are nature’s own remedies for skin conditions from acne to wrinkles.
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are essentially the essence of a plant. Botanical compounds are extracted from certain plants through a distillation process or by using a cold press. Once the aromatic compounds have been extracted, they are added to what is called a carrier oil, which is a base oil that dilutes the concentrated plant extracts. Examples of carrier oils are olive oil, grape seed oil or sweet almond oil. Without the carrier oil, the plant extracts would be too concentrated to apply to the skin.
How Do Essential Oils Work?
Essential oils in our skincare products are absorbed by the skin to provide a number of medicinal and cosmetic benefits. There are more than 90 different types of essential oils, each with its own unique smell and potential health benefits.
Here’s a list of essential oils used in some of our products and the health benefits associated with them:
Lavender – Aids in the treatment of acne and eczema, heals burns and detoxifies the skin.
Frankincense – Heals dry or cracked skin, reduces the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks, and prevents the signs of aging.
Orange – Antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties treat acne, increases collagen production, and can smooth out wrinkles over time.
Cedarwood – Reduces the inflammation and dryness associated with eczema.
Geranium – Slows down the effects of aging, boosts overall skin health, and aids in the treatment of dry skin and acne.
Globe Daisy Flower – Anti-aging properties, anti-inflammatory properties and improves one’s complexion.
