There are more than one hundred beautiful essential oils to choose from when you are considering either adding them to your skin care regime of adding them to your own DIY skin care recipes.  Perhaps some of the best are Rosewood, Frankincense and Neroli, and there are the ones we will be looking at today.

Rosewood essential oil can help improve the skins elasticity and firmness, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and brown age spots on the face. Rosewood encourages the regeneration of new skin cells which helps to diminishes scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. It’s a relaxing oil that improves dull and dry skin.  Rosewood oil is effective for the treatment of acne and helps keep the skin healthy, firm and young.

Frankincense essential oil helps to protect existing skin cells and encourage new cell growth. It has anti aging properties used for reducing wrinkles and tightening loose sagging skin. It also reduces dry chapped skin, and removes scars and stretch marks. Frankincense oil is best used diluted down to 1% to 2% in a carrier oil or cream before using. It’s an effective oil for restoring elasticity to the skin, particularly around the eye area.  It’s used to tighten loose sagging skin under eyes, and reduce under eye wrinkles and crow’s feet. 

Neroli essential oil is a rejuvenating oil that contains citral that stimulates the growth of new skin cells.   It is a powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory oil that’s great for soothing irritated and damaged skin, improving circulation, reducing scarring and fading stretch marks and broken capillaries.   Its moisturising effect helps to tone and tighten the face and neck, and improves skin elasticity. It is especially beneficial for improving the appearance of crepey looking skin on the neck.  Its antibacterial properties reduce sebum production and shrink enlarged pores without overly drying the skin.  Add three drops of neroli essential oil to your favourite facial cream for added anti-ageing benefits.

Aromatherapy essential oils are great skin care products, however for safety reasons, always apply essential oils to the skin in a carrier oil base such as jojoba oil, a lotion base, or add to your favourite skin care cream.
