When using essential oils for skin applications, it is important to dilute them with a carrier oil or a seed oil, such as Rosehip Seed Oil, Avocado Seed or Argan Oil. Each carrier oil has properties that also benefit skin. For example, Rosehip is a non-comedogenic oil packed with rehydrating fatty acids and anti-inflammatory benefits and Argan Oil protects the skin’s barrier and improves overall texture.
Essential oils also have skin benefits, but essential oils can be too strong and potentially irritate the skin. Here are some of skin types and the oils used in them:
Oily Skin: Tea Tree, Rosemary, Manuka and Lemongrass oils are good options for oily skin, as they have astringent properties that help to reduce excess oil production. Rosehip Seed Oil or Hazelnut Seed Oil would be perfect carrier oils with these essential oils because they are drier oils that will not clog pores.
Dry Skin: Lavender, Geranium, and Sandalwood oils are good choices for dry skin, as they are hydrating and nourishing, helping to soothe and moisturize the skin. Rosehip Seed or Argan Oil are good carrier oils with these essential oils because they both have intense moisturizing and regenerative features.
Combination Skin: Geranium and Neroli oils are great for combination skin, as they help to balance both oily and dry areas of the skin. Hazelnut Seed Oil is likely the best, as it has natural astringent properties which help remove oil and bacteria, but also puts moisture back into the skin.
Sensitive Skin: Lavender, Rose, Peppermint and Neroli oils are gentle and soothing, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin and should be combined with Rosehip Seed Oil because it combats inflammation and calms the skin.
Acne: Tea tree, Lavender and Clary Sage essential oils have antibacterial properties that can help reduce inflammation and clear up acne-prone skin. These essential oils combine perfectly with Rosehip Seed and Hazelnut Seed Oil to create acne formulations.
Aging: Rose and Neroli essential oils have anti-aging properties that can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a more youthful-looking complexion. When combined with the moisturizing carrier oils, Rosehip Seed Oil or Argan Oil, the benefits of these essential oils are amplified.
Hyperpigmentation: Lemongrass and Sandalwood essential oils can help to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
Scarring: Lavender and Neroli essential oils can help to reduce the appearance of scars and promote healing in the skin, but should be combined with a carrier oil, such as Rosehip Seed Oil. Rosehip Seed Oil has antioxidants that will stimulate your skin to repair itself naturally.
