Basic Essential Oils and Skin Care

Identify your skin type and choose the blends that will be most suitable for you.

Cleanse

One of the best all-round skin treatment cleansers is jojoba oil. This wax is very similar to the skin's own oils and literally dissolves dirt out of the pores. Even a greasy skin can benefit, and jojoba is a wonderful skin conditioner...

essential oils and skin care

Choose one of the following blends and add to 20 ml jojoba oil. Use a small amount on a cotton pad...

  • Normal/dry/mature skin
    2 drops frankincense, 4 drops sandalwood, 4 drops orange
  • Oily/combination skin
    2 drops juniper, 3 drops cypress, 5 drops lemon
  • Sensitive skin(half the proportions)
    2 drops roman camomile, 3 drops lavender

Keep these blends in the fridge and they will be good for up to four weeks.

Tone

Treat yourself to a good quality floral water from an essential oil supplier or drug store and give yourself a perfect skin toner treatment. Once again, choose for your skin type and use on a cotton wool pad to freshen your skin before moisturising.
