“Other” essential oils to consider:
Myrrh oil is great for aging skin and has strong anti-inflammatory properties that help improve skin tone, firmness, and skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also help heal sun damage, chapped skin, rashes, and eczema.
Ylang ylang oil has a rich, floral fragrance and helps control oil production and minimize breakouts. It also helps regenerate skin cells, smoothing fine lines and improving skin elasticity.
Lavender oil I love to use especially in the spring due to its properties to help manage allergies. It helps you relax and adapt to stress, and regenerate skin cells so is great for mature skin, sunspots, sun burns and scarring.
Geranium oil helps regulate oil production and improves skin elasticity and tighten it, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It also promotes blood circulation, helps to heal bruises, broken capillaries, burns, cuts, dermatitis, eczema, ringworm, and other skin conditions.
