I’ve already blabbed on and on to you about my obsession with face oils and how they have helped me attain and maintain a clear, (as-close-to-)flawless(-as-I’ve-come-since-infancy) complexion. The following ten essential oils help remedy a number of skin conditions — from acne to aging, dryness to oiliness. Frankincense essential oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin, making it ideal for acne-prone skin.
Lavender essential oil is one I suggest no one goes without — it smells amazing, helps you relax and your body adapt to stress, and has great benefits for the skin. May 30, 2015 update: I have decided to remove lemon essential oil from my top 10 list (and replace it with rose below) because of phototoxicity concerns (that is, it can make your skin sensitive to the sun).
Ylang ylang essential oil is one of my favorite essential oils because of its rich, floral fragrance.
Essential oils should be diluted in a carrier oil to a maximum of 5% (see these 5 face oils for naturally clear, flawless skin). Additionally, certain essential oils should be avoided by pregnant women, infants, and young children, so be sure to do your homework beforehand. I am having amazing results with essential oils and carrier oils — my skin in clearer and brighter than it has ever been, and my acne scars and sun spots are slowly but surely fading. Disclaimer: The content of Body Unburdened either through this website, social media pages, or any other materials distributed by Body Unburdened is intended to provide helpful and informative material. I keep seeing more and more articles about the use of EO’s for acne but I must say I am very nervous. I don’t think I saw it mentioned that lemon essential oil is phototoxic and should not be used on the skin if one will be exposed to sunlight, as it can alter skin pigmentation.
At night what are your exact steps on cleaning your face with these oils I’m 27 and literally just started getting acne on my chin. As long as you dilute your EOs properly, you can mix and match to your heart’s content!
I forget which ones, but yoy’re not supposed to mix certain oils, it changed there constitutions.
Which oils are best as someone told me get ones that are from pure plants, others are useless as they are fragranced only, is this true ? I always suggest diluting EOs to a maximum of 5% (since 1 ml is 20 drops, for every 1 ml of carrier oil you would add 1 drop of EO).
I have just started using emu oil as its one oil that penetrates through all 7 layers of skin (not just sit on the top like most) im waiting to see some results as i suffer with real oily skin, large pores all over my cheeks nose and chin and got mild acne on my chin, i seen a really good review of a woman who suffered with large pores after using retinol and she only used emu oil and just raw honey everyday to try and heal her skin it seemed to of worked for her but I’m still slightly sceptical of that!! I Love using EO’s for beauty but wanted to remind everyone that what you put into your body is also important. Is it wrong not to dilute the oils that I use on my face ( lavender, geranium, mirth )???? Hi Nadia, I read your post and the links as well as all the questions and replies and I think they are a little over my head for my question. Ohh some people say carrot seed oils had SPF properties but I’m not sure any studies have been done or whatnot. Hi Nadia, I am 61 with extremely dry skin, I use YL and want to make all my own face products any oil suggestions, was thinking of using avocado butter and or avocado oil and rosehip oil as a carrier oils.
Hi Nadia, I want to do a mixture of avocado oil, patchouli and neroli essential oils for a moisturizer. I was wondering if I could mix use lavender oil and Olive oil as carrier oil and apply on face?
Native American Nutritionals (NAN) are great quality oils and good alternative if you don’t want to get involved with a multi-level marketing company.
Could you help clarify something for me please… You suggested 1 ml is 20 drops, so for every 1 ml of carrier oil, you would add 1 drop of EO. I want to mix Myrrh, ylang ylang, carrot seed, frankincense, and Lavender together for a facial moisturizer.
Is it possible to apply anti-acne oil first and then another type of oil that helps to rejuvenate the skin? I now use Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, such as Young Living, who has a Seed to Seal system that gives you the most potent & pure, better than organic, EO on the earth. I see your recipe for oily skin but what would you recommend for moisturizing dry skin daily? This won’t happen for many but I swear this works wonders for many skin problems and types.
Hi, I want to make a facial oil blend and want to know if i need to add vitamin e to it as a preservative and if so how much.
Hi, I heard mixing castor oil, glycerine, olive oil, coconut oil and magnolia oil can improve the scarring on my legs.
Never used face oil before, and I have a chronic acne problem (even at the age of 33), just can not wait to use geranium to see the result. If I have 20 ml of carrier then I would need to have just 20 drops total of essential oils. Dear Nadia, I just recently decided to incorporate essential oils in my life and beauty regimen. Anyway, on your website I read that lavender has lightening properties… Do you think it will do the trick?
What oil and routine would be best if I have broken capillaries on cheeks can barely see right now, uneven skin tone and fine lines around mouth and start of sagging facial skin causing slight jowls. The essential oils we carry can be used for spa treatments, hair care, natural remedies, henna body art, and more. Bruises give us an indication that there’s some underlying damage to tissue beneath the skin. And then there are some health issues that lead to having a higher likelyhood of bruising as well – anemia, kidney problems, obesity, extremely low body fat levels, skin disorders and joint problems like depleted tissue elasticity. But chances are you are in the first category – you just suffered a quick bruise and are looking for a quick fix.
So without further adieu – here are five DIY recipes that include bruise healing essential oils.


If you have a child that got a bruise it’s recommended that you wrap some ice cubes in a towel and hold them against the bruised area. Follow this with an oil made with 30 drops of hyssop diluted into 2 tablespoons carrier oil. Essential oil based treatments work well for bruises, but there are some other notable natural remedies as well.
Aloe helps bruises heal by supporting blood vessel rehabilitation and limiting inflammation. To use parsley simply take a handful of fresh leaves, crush them, spread them over the bruise and wrap the area with an elastic bandage. Your bruises will heal and resolve themselves the quickest if you take it easy and nourish your body.
These include blood-thinning medications like coumadin and warfarin, anti-clotting drops like Plavix, corticosteriods and NSAIDS (Aspirin, Ibuprofen).
Common vitamin and mineral deficiencies that increase the likelihood of bruising are vitamin C and vitamin K deficiency. And when combined with the right carrier oils (be sure to see the important essential oil guidelines at the end of the post), you will see absolutely amazing results.
It is also a natural toner, decreasing the appearance of pores and evening skin-tone. It is cytophylactic, which means that it helps protect existing cells and encourage new cell growth.
It also helps improve skin elasticity and tighten skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. I do still use it in my skincare regimen, though, and advise anyone else doing so to be sure to use a sunblock during the day. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties that help improve skin tone, firmness, and skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Researchers have found that it contains several therapeutic compounds known to promote healing, especially antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory compounds. However, I only support and endorse products that I use personally and feel would benefit readers.
I am not a doctor or a “registered dietitian,” and I do not provide medical advice or treat diseases. Do you wash your face with them like in an oil cleansing method or do you mositurizer after cleansing with them? Most citrus oils as well as Bergamot, which ironically used to be added to sun screen products, are also phototoxic.
I’ll definitely edit the post to include a warning about lemon EO and sun protection.
I recently started using the OCM, and like you I’m not sure I think the oils clean my skin. For example could I mix frankincense, lavender and lemon with a carrier to spot treat acne? So I googled and found your article on EOs and you mentioned here that pregnant woman, infants and young children should avoid it. I’m wondering if its a good mixture and is it best to mix jojoba oil to neroli and patchouli oil to make more than make my moisturizer using the avocado oil?
I have been reading a lot and experimenting w the oils for relief of primarily for aches and pains.
Theoretically, you can apply these two EOs neat to the skin, but I like to play it safe and suggest a carrier oil in case. I researched for months and they came out as top pick by about 90% of the sites I looked at. It is just easier to make a blend then try to apply everything separately (plus, the EOs would be too string and likely irritate your skin).
They are slightly more expensive than Whole Foods EOs, but they offer a great membership discount, which costs nothing, and your oils get delivered straight to your home!
The acne and redness is still present however on a scale of 1-10 I would say it’s only a 6 now. I often use peppermint oil to cure sinusitis, whether essential oils for skin that contains peppermint? Also i have read that wheatgerm acts as a preservative and would this be better than the natural vitamin e. And as long as you avoid contact WITH the eye and don’t have a sensitivity to any of the oils, you should be OK to apply it around the eye area. I’m in the process of updating it with rose instead of lemon (not sure if you saw my update within the post) – it will be back up by this evening! Can it be effective and help me get rid of my spots… Can I have a breakthrough using it? I would like to ask for your help to properly dilute to make a homemade lotion for myself and shea butter.
They are sold in amber glass bottles for freshness, and to protect the oils from exposure to light. Please read more about our essential oil usage for hair care, and for using essential oils in our henna body art recipe.
Everyone does this at some point and no matter how resilient you are at some point you’ll bruise.
For example, they might have a family history of weak blood vessels or a propensity for blood clotting. We’ll start off with the most quick and simple applications and then progress towards some more involved and thorough procedures. Internally it can support immune health and tonify the internal systems, and externally it can decrease inflammation, reduce pain and make skin conditions heal at a faster rate. Make sure you are getting rest, are partaking in relaxing activities and eating nourishing (non-stimulating) foods if you want to see your bruises fade quickly. If you have any questions, comments or recommendations of your own please let us know in the comment section below! For this reason, it helps reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of scars.


It also promotes blood circulation to the areas where it is applied, helping to heal bruises, broken capillaries, burns, cuts, dermatitis, eczema, ringworm, and other skin conditions.
This rejuvenating oil contains a natural chemical called citral, which helps regenerate cells.
Because it also has antiseptic, antifungal, and antibacterial properties, it can also benefit skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne. As a result, rose essential oil helps refine skin texture and tone, and can be helpful with managing skin conditions such as psoriasis and dermatitis. It also helps to regulate oil production, which can decrease the severity and incidence of breakouts. Be sure to do a patch test to make sure your skin does not have an adverse reaction to the oils. If not and you decide to try one or two (or more!), please give us an update on how they are working for you! Thank you for supporting Body Unburdened and the work I do to help readers live non-toxic, healthy lives! Just as an aside, having been working with essential oils for 30 years now, my personal recommendation is to limit face oils to 3% (3 drops to every 100 drops of carrier oil, which is 1 tsp) which is a better ratio for more sensitive skins…and with essential oils, unlike how we are conditioned to think with mass market consumer goods, less is more! Is one allowed to mix a few oils together (such as germanium, lavendar, tea tree, jojoba) or are they generally to be used separately? I have the Frankincense right now but was thinking of adding the Geranium and Lavender with it. What I would like to do is begin using more oils as moisturizers for my body ( the whole family). I want to experiment with these oils as I have lost some weight but I want to tighten and fade my stretch marks and clear my face. I then found out that even certified 100% organic EOs are not always 100% oil, or are distilled in large batches at very high heat, ruining the therapeutic chemical makeup of the plant. It’s good to see more and more people using and enjoying the benefits of this natural product. And add Carrot Seed, Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli and Ylang EO’s how would I mix all that together (quantities). My purpose to buy these oils was to use it as a substitute of anti-aging cream and lightening the pigmentation on my cheek.
Essential oils can evaporate, so we pour our essential oils only when they are ordered, on demand. Note: If you are taking blood thinners consult your doctor if you thinking of supplement vitamin K.
For this reason, it is said to be very good at preventing and healing stretch marks, as well.
Interestingly, one study even found that inhaling rose essential oil inhibits water loss in the skin and lowers the concentration of the stress hormone cortisol in the body (stress has a profound impact on your skin!).
The inner forearm is a great place to do a test since the skin is delicate, similar to facial skin. I mixed up 2 serums for spot treatment-1 has Tea Tree, Lemongrass, Lavender and Ylang Ylang to 2Tbsp Jojoba and the other is Lemon, Ylang Ylang and Frankincense to 2 Tbsp Jojoba. I recommend paying attention the species and choosing Helichrysum italicum because it is apparently the most potent. It’s antibacterial and says it has moisturizers, however my skin gets so dry between the winter weather and certain medications, that it will actually crack and bleed. I know you need a carrier oil to mix with the EO, but sm not sure which EO blend well with different carriers. So, while they may smell similar, they have been genetically altered, leaving them with little to no therapeutic benefits.
Can you let me know if these oils can be mixed and used or is there any other way to use them which can give results? I already have the lemongrass, but looking to see if I needed to invest in the lemon as well. However, I think that after having a drastic cosmetic treatment those brown spots will return… and I just waste time and money. Its antiseptic properties also balance oil production and shrink the appearance of pores without drying skin. Unfortunately this stuff is super pricey and I pay $26.00 for 2 ml (organic Simpers Botanicals), but once properly diluted it works wonders and lasts ages. I was hoping there is one essential oil that is best for extremely dry skin that I could perhaps just add into my liquid hand soap. I have coconut oil at home what could I do w that and combine an Ezi for a skin moisturizer?
I have several that I use in my humidifier that help keep the dryness away from my skin overall, but the hands are still a problem. I personally like geranium, myrrh, rose, patchouli, and frankincense combo or just 2 or 3 of these. I just cleanse with my mix and I don’t have to moisturize, so wondering if I would just add to my mix? All people should consult their licensed health care provider, before taking any herbal product.
In particular, women who are pregnant or nursing, and persons with known medical conditions, should consult their licensed health care provider before taking any herbal product. Not a wrinkle on my 50 yr old face and i only breakout when i get lazy and forget to use my oils, which takes about two weeks to see a pimple. Massage about 2 tablespoons on a clean well rinsed face and throat.*** Dry rinsed skin by patting skin- not scrubbing or rubbing prior to massage.
