Essential oils in cosmetics.

Essential oils have been used in cosmetics for centuries. The benefits for the skin are well known and used depending on the skintype or treatment required.

If you want to have a smooth start on personalising your skincare start with adding a few drops of essential oils to your face cream or buy a trusted natural or unscented cream and add your favourite essential oil to it.

If you like using oil on your skin choose a carrier oil like coconut oil, olive oil or jojoba.

Make your experience, natural skincare is a self discovery.

There are some things you have to know though.

Never apply essential oils directly on your skin, it might irritate as the oils are very concentrated.

Start with small samples.

Discover not only the medical treatment part of essential oils, also experience the scent and feel how they impact your mood.

Your nose is your guide.

You will know what is good for you.

Quantities.

How many drops of each oil.

General number. For 100 ml of cream or carrier oil use more or less 20 drops total of essential oils.

For a start do not mix more than 3 different type of essential oils so you can still distinguish between the different fragrances and effects.

Before using an oil take a moment to smell it. If you don’t like the scent don’t use it.
