This is a common additive for gum, toothpastes, and foods, but the menthol that is contained in peppermint actually helps the skin! It leaves a cooling effect along with preventing microorganism growth and bacterial growth and helps with increasing the oil production of the skin.

    JASMINE

    Known for its romantic scent and calming properties, Jasmine is great to ‘put you in the mood’, but it’s also incredibly useful for dry skin as it provides lots of moisture and hydration for your skin.

    Using it as a massage lotion is greatly beneficial for emotional well being and skin hydration. It is known as the most calming scent there is.

    It is also beneficial for those who are in labor, because it promotes uterine contractions and speed up delivery – thus those who are pregnant should only use it when in labor! You only need 5-6 drops for your bath.

    You can even combine the oils to your liking to make the perfect soothing bath. Jasmine with Lavender is an ideal relaxing winter bath.

  • For Your Beloved Wrinkles




    NEROLI

    Rosehip Seed Oil is incredibly moisturizing and is one of the only essential oils that you can apply directly to your skin without a carrier oil.

    It helps to reduce scarring, even out skin tone. It has a high amount of fatty acids which promote healing of the skin and prevents keloid scarring.


    PATCHOULI

    Patchouli Oil helps to tone the skin and muscles, it also allows nutrients to be absorbed quickly and easily into the skin.

    It also has Cytophylactic which means it helps promote the growth of new skin cells and red blood cells - meaning your skin actually starts to grow back and look younger.

    CONCLUSION

    There you have it! A few more essential oils to help you with your home remedies and natural skin care.


    What Should I Buy

    Most essential oils have multiple recipes you can use them in.

    You will only use a small amount at a time so it is best to buy regularly and fresh rather than have a large quantity sitting for a long time opened and half used.


    Special Note: I use Amazon online to purchase ready to go products so I can maintain my natural skin care regime at all times, e.g travelling, working long hours, unable to get to the store... It is a good alternative without compromising my ideals.
