Magic of Aroma Oils on Your Skin

Essential Oils are my MUST HAVE products. I’ve learned about beauty and purpose of its use when I went on vacation to Greece.  What a relaxation time I had!  Million thanks to all those old Greek ladies who were generous enough to share their knowledge of beauty secrets with me. For centuries Greeks are using these in every aspect of their lives, same as Egyptians and Indians.  It is interesting, but I found out, that when I was not into essential oils, I only knew about a few of them like jojoba   and jasmine.  Though, once I was introduced to the magical effects of oils, I felt completely lost in a variety and different purpose of each. Now, after being an Essential fan for a few years, I’ve decided to share my knowledge with you dear.
 For starters, it is important for you to determine your skin type, whether it’s dry, oily, normal, or a combination.

Dry skin is very sensitive to sun rays and freezing cold temperatures. Dry skin is often shelled and inflamed, and inclined to early occurrence of wrinkles.
Cosmeticians recommend using aroma oils for stimulation of the metabolic processes, an improved neogenesis of skin, and an improvement of a blood circulation at the skin. By the way, cosmeticians also advise that after 30, it is good for women to use dry skin products, as they have provide a rejuvenating effect.
Oils of a chamomile, jasmine, geranium, orange, and grapefruit will have a calming effect on your skin.
The more aromatic oils of rose, tea tree, lavender, and geranium provide a smoothing effect on your skin. Oils of sandal-wood tree, chamomile, and lemon will help to tone your skin.

Oily skin. The most distinctive feature of oily skin is shine. Pores clog very quickly, making it very difficult for the skin to breathe. As a direct result of clogged pores, the immunity of the skin decreases and often inflammatory processes are observed. Essential oils can promote the narrowing of pores, and strengthening of the immunity of the skin. One of the most effective methods to improve metabolic process at cellular level, while supplying oily skin with oxygen and nutrients, is a massage. Please don’t be scared if after sever times of massaging your face with essential oils you will notice little ripen pimples. That simply means that there is an active excision of hypodermic fat from the pores.
Essential Oils of mint, lemon, ginger, geranium, and juniper can tone your oily skin, while essential oils of
Chamomile, lavender and ylang ylang are used primarily to calm your skin. Oil of grapefruit, bergamot, and lemon will improve metabolic processes.

The Normal type of skin has a healthy look which will last forever if you support and maintain its vibrancy. Oils of geranium, juniper, and lemon will act as toning stimulators. For help relaxing of your skin, try oils of mint, chamomile, and lavender. Little, tiny wrinkles can be smoothed away with the help of lemon, orange and/or tea tree oils.

Combo skin. This type of skin combines both features of dry and oily skin. Usually this type of skin has an oily shine and doesn’t take washing well. In order to achieve the proper aroma care for this type of skin, I would recommend consulting an aroma-cosmetologist. Generally, mint oil, lemon and a tea tree oils can be used for a refreshing, toning purposes.

I hope I was a little helpful,
