Ahh, there is nothing more relaxing than inhaling essential oils that are being diffused into the air. While you’re probably aware of all the health benefits aromatherapy has on your body, such as treating respiratory infections, anxiety, and insomnia, did you know essential oils can also be used topically to treat several beauty concerns?
These concentrated natural oils, which are derived from trees, plants, or flowers, have loads of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties that offer a wide variety of benefits for different skin issues. Whether you’re looking to banish your pimples or need help bringing your dehydrated skin back to life, we did the research and narrowed it down to nine essential oils that you might want to consider incorporating into your beauty routine.
But take note! Due to their high concentration, applying essential oils directly to the skin can cause an allergic reaction or skin irritation in some people. Therefore, always dilute essential oils with a carrier oil like jojoba, argan, coconut, or your go-to moisturizer. We recommend applying the blend in a small patch on skin to test sensitivity before applying all over body.
