9 Best Essential Oils for Beauty
Essential oils are basically natural oils that are distilled from plants that have its fragrance. Essential oils are not fragrance oils.
Fragrance oils are typically man-made and do not have the healing properties that essential oils have. These are the best essential oils for beauty that I’ve found.
Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense Essential Oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. So, this makes it the perfect choice for those that suffer from acne. It is also a natural toner which means it can help shrink pores, tighten skin and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender Essential Oil works wonderfully for stress. The smell is truly amazing and it’s a great add-in to homemade scrubs and bath salts. It also helps regenerate skin which makes it perfect for those of us who are aging and is my favorite essential oil for skin repair. I use it in my homemade night cream.
Tea Tree Essential Oil
Tea Tree Essential Oil is another essential oil with antibacterial properties. So, this is a wonderful choice for those who suffer from acne and oily skin.
Chamomile Essential Oil
Chamomile Essential Oil is one of my favorites. And, chamomile is very calming to irritated skin. Since I suffer from rosacea, I keep this one on hand all the time.
Rose Essential Oil
Rose essential oil can be on the expensive side but it is very beneficial for fading scars from acne and even stretch marks. Plus, it smells amazing!
Sandalwood Essential Oil
Sandalwood essential oil has been known to restore shine and moisture to your hair as well as revitalize tired skin.
Basil Essential Oil
Basil essential oil can soothe bug bites and irritation suffered by those with sensitive skin.

Neroli Essential Oil
For those of us that are aging a bit faster than we like, Neroli Essential Oil is an effective toner for mature skin.
Cypress Essential Oil
If you have rosacea, cypress essential oil can help reduce capillary inflammation around the nose.
These essential oils must be diluted before using. They can be added to a carrier oil like sweet almond oil or coconut oil. They can also be used in homemade beauty products like my homemade salt scrub.
