From skin to hair: These powerful essential oils can do wonders for your health
Essential oils are good for several beauty remedies. They are highly therapeutic and can be used for aromatherapy.
Most people underestimate the power of essential oils and their uses. Not only are essential oils highly therapeutic, but they are also good for several beauty remedies. Many often use them when teaching aromatherapy meditation to corporates, but they can be used in a variety of beauty potions too.
The most important thing to remember is that all essential oils require a carrier oil and that means that you can use a heavy oil to massage the essential oils into the skin as they cannot be used directly. Coconut, almond, sesame, castor and even rice bran oil can be used as carrier oils. Let’s start with some basic skin problems and how to tackle them with the use of essential oils.
Tea tree oil to get rid of pimples and acne: Take about 2 drops of Tea Tree oil and mix it with 1 tsp of Fuller’s Earth (multani mitti) and some spring water. Make a smooth paste and apply this on acne and pimples on the face. This oil naturally kills bacteria that leads to pimples.
Rose Hip Oil to rejuvenate dull skin: For this take 2 tsp of almond oil and add 2 drops of RoseHip oil and massage into the skin to see the most amazing and rejuvenated skin in no time at all. This just wakes up the skin as it contains Vitamin C and Lycopene.
Jasmine Oil to fade away stretch marks: If you are suffering from stretch marks and loose skin that has lost its elasticity, then you should massage your skin with a mix of coconut oil and Jasmine oil. Take approximately 50ml of pure coconut oil and mix these 5 drops of Jasmine oil. The stretch marks will fade with regular use.
Ylang Ylang Oil to nourish and fight against hair thinning: If you have damaged or parched hair that is thinning and requires nourishment then I suggest that you massage your hair with castor oil to which you have added 4-5drops of Ylang Ylang oil. This also helps hair to grow and thicken hair. It is also known to protect the hair from salt water and chlorine.
Most people are afraid to start their journey with aroma oils but once you start you cannot go wrong. There are a lot of poor-quality essential oils available in the market so be careful when you are picking them up for packs and peels to be used at home. The good quality ones may be a little more expensive but it is better to buy pure essential oils that you would eventually be using on your face and hair.
