Fighting Early Signs of Aging with Essential Oils

essential oils

You may enjoy using your facial and skin care products, but have you checked to see how many ingredients listed on there that are not natural? Essential oils are minuscule in molecular size, which means they are absorbed well by the skin making them perfect to heal, soften, and nourish. If you’re new to using oils, do research to make sure you know the best way to apply them. For example, be sure to dilute the oils because when used at their full strength, they can possibly cause irritation. When used properly, these oils will give you luminous skin!

Top 7 Essential Oils for Glowing Skin


Lemongrass oil is a good choice in essential oils to increase your skin’s glowing appearance, because it has detoxifying and regenerative qualities. This oil will help minimize bacterial or microbial growth on your skin. It can be used as a fungicidal, astringent, and a way to minimize pores.


If you’re looking for good and unique skin care oil, look no further than rosehip oil! This essential oil contains Omega 3,6 and 9, vitamin C, lycopene and linoleic acids.

You might not think of eucalyptus as skin care oil, but it has lots of benefits. Eucalyptus works similar to tea tree oil, where it can help with acne. This anti microbial and anti bacterial oil can help relieve redness, irritation and swelling associated with adult acne.

Apricot Kernel

Rich in omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid, Apricot Kernel oil helps to hydrate and nourish skin while vitamins A and E contained in the oil encourage regeneration of skin cells and collagen production to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This oil is especially helpful for hydrating and healing very dry skin.

Carrot Seed

Carrot Seed oil is full of antioxidant carotenoids which boost the body’s immune response to UV rays, helping to prevent sun damage. Carotenoids also stimulate the rejuvenation of skin cells, aid in the detoxification process, and can help to heal chronic skin conditions like #eczema and #psoriasis.

Pomegranate Seed

Pomegranate Seed oil contains very high concentrations of antioxidants which help to prevent free radical damage and slow the aging process. Punicic and ellagic acids contained in this essential oil help to nourish skin, enhance elasticity, and promote cell regeneration. Pomegranate Seed oil also protects and heals dry, irritated, burned, or damaged skin such as that affected by #eczema or #psoriasis.
