Essential oils have long been touted for their therapeutic properties and numerous health benefits. The use of essential oils has its roots in ancient beauty rituals and the popularity of natural scented oils has continued to skyrocket since then.
While most of us consider essential oils the perfect component for a relaxing session of aromatherapy, the fragrant little bottles are also quite beneficial for your skin.
However, it’s important to do your research before using essential oils as not all of them will suit your skin. It is also essential to dilute them with a carrier oil before using them directly on the skin.
You can also choose products that contain natural essential oils that have been derived from organic ingredients such as those offered by Nosh Body.
Here are our top picks for beneficial essential oils that should be an essential part of your skincare routine:
Rose Hip Seed Oil
As Shakespeare so eloquently put it, ‘A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.’ The sweet-smelling rosehip seed oil is derived from a specific rose bush called the Rosa Canina. It is extracted from the seeds and fruit of the rose plant instead of the petals and is rich in various vitamins and minerals.
It protects the skin from premature aging. The wonderfully rich fatty acids present in the oil improve the hydration levels and the overall texture of the skin. Our Rose Goddess Retinol Serum contains a healthy amount of pure rosehip seed oil and has wonderful anti-aging benefits!
Organic Lavender Oil
Who doesn’t like the sweet calming smell of lavender? The plant is commonly used in numerous products, including lotions such as the Nosh Body’s Botanical Body Teapot In spa lavender scent, perfumes, and even teas. Research shows that the smell of lavender helps alleviate the mood and increases the feelings of positivity. It is also quite good for decreasing stress and improving the quality of your sleep.
Lavender oil is also believed to have powerful anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that protect the skin from inflammation and common irritants. It can also be used to heal bug bites and minor burns.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is full of anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that are great for treating irritating skin conditions such as acne. The components of tea tree oil are quite effective in eliminating viruses, fungus, and bacteria from the skin’s surface.
It calms down any inflammation, swelling, and redness and can reduce the appearance of acne scars. It also promoted healthier cell regeneration giving the appearance of smoother and clearer looking skin.
However, applying tea tree oil directly to the skin can cause dryness. Experts recommend using facial serums and cleansing foams that contain a blend of natural oils, including tea tree oil, to counteract dryness and encourage healthy glowing skin.
