Essential oils can remedy and soothe a variety of skin issues.

1. Tea Tree

Great for clearing up acne, tea tree oil dries out blemishes. Apply it directly to the affected areas of the face with a q-tip. The swelling and redness of the acne will decrease with the use of this essential oil.

2. Jasmine Oil

Use Jasmine oil in combination with regular body or face lotion to treat dry or patchy skin. This oil can also be used to diminish the appearance of scarring and stretch marks on the body. Those with sensitive skin are safe to use jasmine oil.

3. Lemongrass

To minimize pores, use a few drops of lemongrass oil applied directly to the face. Lemongrass is also known to add firmness back into the skin. This oil will replace toner in the skincare routine.

4. Peppermint

Perfect for chapped skin caused by bug bites, plant allergies, or other irritants, peppermint oil creates a cooling effect on the skin. A combination of the cooling effect and clearing up rashes makes this oil a good standby product to have in the medicine cabinet.

5. Camomile

Like jasmine essential oils, camomile aids in the fading of scars and stretch marks. Beyond these benefits, however, it can also treat cuts and wounds when they happen because they act as barriers from infection.

6. Carrot Seed

Carrot seed oil has a plethora of benefits for your skin. Not only does it act as a mild sunscreen from UV rays, but it also has amazing rejuvenating effects, as well. It is the answer to tired, aging skin that needs mending.

7. Ylang-ylang

Ylang-ylang oil is great for your skin regardless of what skin type you have. It is known to balance overly oily and overly dry skin on the face, as well as stimulate hair growth when used on the scalp.

8. Sandalwood

One of the best essential oils to provide your skin with moisture is sandalwood. Known to hydrate the skin and therefore, treat wrinkles, aging women will love their results after using this oil.

9. Coriander

If blackheads are a concern when choosing skincare, try coriander essential oil paired with turmeric powder. The paste will aid in the treatment of these stubborn pimples found on and around the nose.

10. Rose

Rose essential oil is a great alternative to lemon, which can cause skin sensitivity to light. Rose oil acts as a natural toner for the skin and evens out texture with continued use.

Other Important Tips

  1. Many essential oils are too concentrated to apply directly to the skin, so consider combining the oils with lotion, water, or a powder to dilute them.
  2. Combine a half a teaspoon of olive oil with one drop of essential oil and place on the inside of your upper arm to test your tolerance of essential oils as a whole.
