Essential oils have a direct healing action on the skin

Essentials oils play a leading part in natural skincare, acting as both fragrance and as active ingredients – these are the medicinal and therapeutic ingredients that are added to the product to give their skin-healing value. Because of their anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, detoxifying, antibacterial, and antiviral properties, essential oils can be intensely nourishing and balancing for the skin. They offer a variety of skin-beautifying properties to make a real difference to your skin.

Benefits of Using Essential Oils on the Skin

Essential oils are the highly concentrated, aromatic essences of trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, resins, and flowers. The plants’ natural defense and protective mechanisms work the same in our bodies as they do in nature. As natural chemical compounds, they are made up of chemical constituents which possess wide-ranging therapeutic properties that work with our skin to help it to heal, repair and regenerate healthy skin cells quickly and efficiently.

When applied to the skin, essential oils have direct healing actions on our skins. When applied by diluting using the carrier oil, the carrier substance can amplify the efficacy of the essential oils as the lipids in a carrier can drive it into the pores. When the essential oils absorbed into the skin, the chemicals of the essential oils help to maintain and improve the skin overall health and wellness as well as look and feel.
