The Essential Oils You Should Introduce to Your Beauty Regime Today

We’d be very surprised if you haven’t heard all about the benefits of essential oils, the majority of which have been used throughout the world for centuries to promote good health. When it comes to skincare, there are a number of oils that you should seriously consider making beauty cabinet staples. 

Jojoba Oil

This oil is extracted from the nut of shrubs that are found in North America and was even used by Native American tribes for skin and hair care. Unlike a lot of essential oils, jojoba has the consistency of wax meaning that it can easily produce or dissolve oil depending on what your skin needs. Using only a few drops of jojoba at night can help to moisturise and balance out your skin tone.

Coconut Oil

Some of the most popular uses for coconut oil include body butter, body oil and homemade deodorant but did you know it can also be used to help improve your oral health? Coconut oil pulling is one of the very best ways to get rid of bacteria and toxins in our mouths, promoting healthy gums and whiter teeth. Although it has been primarily used in Ayurvedic medicine, it has gained popularity in recent years because of increased importance in detoxing. 

Lavender Oil

It might come as a surprise to learn that the Ancient Egyptians used lavender oil not only as a perfume but in the mummification process too. Don’t let that put you off, however. Lavender oil is widely used today because it has many benefits for your whole body. Not only can it restore your skin to its natural complexion but it has been used to heal burns and wounds, alleviate headaches and in modern aromatherapy, it is used to reduce anxiety and stress.

Argan Oil

The oil from the Moroccan argan tree is a powerful moisturiser no matter your skin type. This is because it’s packed with vitamin E, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that can help with the treatment of skin conditions like eczema and rosacea. Those with oily skin can benefit from argan oil because it helps to control oil production and prevent the daily build-up of sebum. 

Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil is truly an all-rounder. Due to its proven antiseptic properties, you may have used it in the past to soothe a wound or an infection, but when it comes to skincare, it has been known to help with acne, psoriasis and cold sores. Adding a few drops of tea tree oil to your regular shampoo can also help to soothe your scalp and remove dandruff.

Rosehip Seed Oil

Arguably, this oil is lesser known than the others we’ve listed, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t as beneficial. Extracted from the seeds of a specific rose variety found in Chile, it is actually one of the best essential oils for anti-ageing and can be used alongside other oils as a moisturiser. The vitamins found in the rosehip seed can improve the appearance of dark circles and scars and increase your skin’s elasticity, giving your face an all-around, well-deserved glow.
