Essential oils have fantastic benefits for the skin

The following essential oils help remedy a number of skin conditions — from acne to aging, dryness to oiliness.

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense essential oil is a powerful astringent, meaning it helps protect skin cells. It can be used to help reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, prevent wrinkles, and it even helps lift and tighten skin to naturally slow signs of aging. The oil can be used anywhere where the skin becomes saggy, such as the abdomen, jowls or under the eyes. Mix six drops of oil to one ounce of unscented oil and apply it directly to the skin. Be sure to always do a small patch area test first to test for possible allergic reactions.

LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL

The lavender essential oil smells amazing, helps you relax your body indulged in stress and has great benefits for the skin. This oil is suitable for all skin types and needs.

Add 10 drops per 1 ounce of aloe vera or carrier oil will sooth the worst sunburn and bring rapid healing to dry skin, minor cuts and scraps.

Want to reduce age spots?  Try mixing lavender oil with frankincense essential oil and put it on your skin first thing in the morning, right after you shower and right before bed.

ROSE ESSENTIAL OIL

There are many qualities of rose essential oil that make it beneficial for skin.  If you suffer from acne, try dabbing one drop of pure rose essential oil on blemishes three times a day.
