In this blog post, we will talk about all the ways that essential oils can be used in your skincare routine.

I’m a firm believer in the power of essential oils. I use them for everything – from cleaning to cooking, and now they’re also a staple in my skincare routine! I love how easy it is to incorporate them into my daily beauty regimen because they make skin feel good.

Which essential oil is best for the skin?

I have been using oils for a while now. I find that the smell is soothing, and it’s nice to use them in my diffuser at night or take some deep breaths of lavender oil before bed. But, every once in a while, I get asked about which one is best for the skin. So, here are some great ways you can incorporate these oils into your beauty routine:

  • Lavender oil can be used as a face mask by mixing with honey and applying it over your face for 20 minutes. You’ll want to avoid this if you’re allergic to bee stings because honey does come from bees!
  • Lemon essential oil mixed with water makes an effective eye makeup remover.
  • Tea tree oil can also be used as an eye makeup remover.

Why can essential oils be harmful to my skin?

I’m sure you’ve heard that essential oils are good for your health in many ways, so why would they be bad for your skin? Along with the benefits of using them to support physical and emotional well-being, there’s also a downside. Essential oils are often made from plants. Plants contain natural chemicals that can’t always react well with our skin or other body tissue – think poison ivy.

It’s important to know that not all essential oils are safe for your skin. If you’re using them regularly, it can dry out your skin or even cause an allergic reaction.

We have all seen essential oils touted as the cure-all for everything from weight loss to stress. But what about when they are bad for your skin? Essential oils can be a massive problem if you’re prone to acne or other skin sensitivities because they often cause inflammation and breakouts on your face.

Do you love the smell of lavender? Or do citrus oils make your day brighter? There are so many different scents to choose from, like eucalyptus and rosemary. Essential oils have been used throughout history for a variety of purposes. Today, they’re seen as an all-natural beauty product that can help with skin conditions such as acne or eczema. So what are some ways you can use essential oils in your skincare routine?

One way is by adding them to homemade sugar scrubs! Add about ten drops of lemon oil and 20 drops of tea tree oil into 1/2 cup coarse brown sugar (or coconut sugar) and stir until no clumps are left. Rub this onto your skin.

You may not know it, but essential oils can be used in all sorts of ways. Not only are they great for making your home smell nice (think: lavender and lemon), but they also have a ton of benefits when it comes to your skin.
