Skin Care: Aromatherapy Style

The translation of the word aromatherapy truly means ‘fragrant remedy’, allowing the healing properties of plants for the body and the senses. The essential oils of nature’s plants bring fragrant pleasures as well as the vitamins, antibodies, hormones, nutrients and antibacterial abilities. Some of the best aromatherapies can be used for skin care with refreshing and surprising results for all skin types.


Make sure you are using only pure essential oils for your skin care. These will assist in regenerating skin cell development by permeating into the skin’s dermal layer. They will produce healthy skin cells, even if there is damage. The essential oils can soothe inflamed and sensitive skin as well as help to balance oily or dry skin. Essentials oils reduce bacterial and fungal infections and encourage the reduction of the skin toxins. Make sure you use 100% natural essential oils. Check the label, as some may misrepresent and include synthetic preservatives. Storage should be away from heat and light and if you follow the guidelines, depending upon the oil, it should last a few years.

Some of the most popular essential oils for aromatherapy skin care include:

Lavender: Highly used because it can be combined with other essential oils and is known for increasing the production of healthy white blood cells in the body. Readily used for skin balance in situations where there is acne or other skin irritations.

Orange: A wonderful uplifting scent, this is high in vitamins C and A and stimulates circulation. When combined with cypress oil it has been known to assist in the release of toxins and excess water.

Peppermint: The clean, fresh and cool scent stimulates the hippocampus portion of the brain and helps in focus and memory. It also acts as a detoxifier and cleanser as well as a disinfectant. Peppermint helps the natural defenses of the skin and assists in lymph drainage.
