Essential oils have always been used in beauty and skin-care products. In fact, they were used in medicine as natural remedies for skin ailments and rashes long before over-the-counter lotions came onto the market. Today, some of the top, natural, anti-aging skin-care products bring the benefits of these oils to the consumer by including them as ingredients in their products.

Essential oils have the reputation for being safe and can be used as homemade skin care products. They may be extracted from various parts of the plant, including the fruit, leaf, skin, roots, or peels. Here is a look at the most effective ones:

Lavender Essential Oil

This is recommended for those with dry skin and rashes, inflamed skin, skin irritations like acne, psoriasis, and insect stings. Its heady fragrance makes lavender a good remedy for insomnia and it is also used to relieve headaches, fever, and hair problems. Because it is strong, it is usually mixed with a carrier oil before it is used on skin.

Violet Essential Oil

Suitable for sensitive skin, the gentle aroma of violet can be found in many skin lotions. Violet is also used in herbal medicine and treats a number of skin conditions by soothing dry and itchy skin. It is an effective moisturizer and its antiseptic properties heal acne while tightening the pores.

Geranium Essential Oil

Usually used for dry skin, geranium is versatile and is derived from the stem, leaves, and flowers. It is used in anti-aging products for its ability to make the skin supple. It also treats itchy scalp and skin and is mild, making it ideal for sensitive skin.

Neroli Essential Oil

Sweet-scented neroli essential oil comes from the orange blossom and has the unique ability to cure stretch marks and scars on the skin. It is also used in anti-aging products and has a remarkable calming effect while relieving anxiety.

Rose Essential Oil

Commonly used to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, rose is also a stress reliever besides treating dry skin, and it smells great.

Myrrh Essential Oil

This treats oily skin and can also get rid of acne, scars, and skin infections while slowing down aging.

Rosewood Essential Oil

This is effective for dull, lifeless skin. It has a unique fragrance, moisturizes the skin, and treats minor skin infections. It is used with other oils to enhance its action.

Essential oils are reliable and effective and often are used blended with others depending on its fragrance and their specific properties. Other common essential oils in addition to those already listed are lemon oil, basil oil, cinnamon oil, clove oil, peppermint, tea tree oil, and more.

Choosing the right essential oil for your needs can be challenging. Look for safe, tested, and proven natural skin-care products.
