Natural Essential Oils for Your Skin

Natural Essential Oils for Your Skin

It is highly likely that you, or someone you know, have at one point regretted buying a skin care product, even though it worked perfectly. Why? Because the scent was too overwhelming or one that you were sensitive to. This is a common problem with commercially produced skin care products. There’s more than one reason why one should avoid these kinds of products, and opt for organic skin care instead. Not only do they perform better, but they are also healthier for your skin and your overall health. Unlike commercial skin care products with irritating smells, organic skin care products employ natural essential oils and give off scents that are pleasant and have therapeutic effects as well.

Aromatherapy is an alternative treatment methodology that utilizes natural essential oils and their healing properties. These oils can be either be absorbed into the skin or their aromas inhaled for pleasant and therapeutic effects. Hence, organic skin care products, which usually contain these oils as ingredients, pack two benefits into one.

Some Popular Natural Essential Oils

There are over 40 different natural essential oils that can be found and purchased today, but the most popular ones, commonly found in organic skincare products, have been discussed below. While some of these scents are also found in commercially produced products, the scents in those cases are artificially enhanced which reduces or neutralizes the therapeutic and healing benefits they carry.

Lavender

Lavender is a very popular essential oil. Its stress relieving properties are an added benefit on top of its lovely scent. Organic skin care products made with lavender oil can be great for combatting stress and anxiety. Lavender’s stress relieving properties help in relaxation, in turn allowing one to get a good night’s sleep. It is also used by massage therapists to help their clients relax.

Rosemary

Rosemary has numerous benefits for the skin. It has antimicrobial and antibacterial qualities, which make it helpful in efforts to battle many skin problems, including eczema, acne, and dermatitis. It stimulates mental activity and reduces stress, tiredness, and absent-mindedness.

Eucalyptus

Organic skin care products with eucalyptus extracts are good for people with respiratory issues. Its chief aromatherapy benefits include relieving congestion and enhancing focus and attentiveness. Its cooling properties are a great help against fevers and migraines, and also help relieve muscle aches and pains.

Green Tea

Green tea essential oil is widely used in skin care products. Its aromatherapy benefits include soothing effects, which make it popular with massage therapists.

Citrus

Citrus natural essential oils have a very fresh, uplifting, and energizing scent. Their calming and stress relieving aromatherapy benefits can revitalize the spirit.

When you go for organic skin care, you make the decision to protect your skin, nervous system, and immune system from harmful chemicals. You also reduce the chances of developing many fatal diseases, while opening your doors to the benefits of all things organic, and the healing properties of aromatherapy.
