Have you ever wonder about the benefits of body oils?

 I love using oils in the summer and I feel that it absorbs into the skin easier. I have over the years wonder about oils and found some information that I will love to share. I also have been using most of these oils for as long as I can remember.
The chart below offers simple benefits and explanations for essential oils that one might find helpful. I am sure there is a whole lot more to know about these oils since they have been used since the beginning of time for centuries. Even today many beauty products use these oils to enhance its effects on the skin and also smells good too. I hope this information is helpful.

Carrot seed essential oil


Carrot seed essential oil has a rejuvenating effect on the skin. It not only works to
 help smooth skin, but assists with cell regeneration. For this reason, it can help to fade
 scars and improve the tone of aging skin. I am not sure about the smell personally but everyone is different.

Frankincense Essential Oil


Frankincense essential oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin,
making it ideal for acne-prone skin. It is also a natural toner, decreasing the appearance
of pores and evening skin-tone. It is cytophylactic, which means that it helps protect
existing cells and encourage new cell growth. For this reason, it helps reduce wrinkles,
tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of scars. It also helps soothe chapped, dry skin. The smell is a bit strong but its ok when mixed with a carrier oil like olive oil, jojoba or grape-seed oil.

Geranium Essential Oil


Geranium essential oil helps regulate oil production and reduces acne breakouts. It also
 helps improve skin elasticity and tighten skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
It also promotes blood circulation to the areas where it is applied, helping to heal
bruises, broken capillaries, burns, cuts, dermatitis, eczema, ringworm, and other
skin conditions. Personally I feel this oil also smells a bit strong.

Lavender Essential Oil


Lavender essential oil helps lighten the appearance of age spots and scars. It is helps
 regenerate skin cells so is great for mature skin, sun spots, and scarring. Another great
 oil for all skin types and needs. The smell is great, light and almost everyone like this smell, I love using it at night before bed as a roomspray.

Lemon Essential Oil


Lemon essential oil is a wonderful natural astringent and antibacterial agent. As such,
it is extremely beneficial to those with oily and acne. Be careful when using it and the amount of sun you are exposed it daily.

Myrrh Essential Oil


Myrrh essential oil greatly benefits aging skin. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties
 that help improve skin tone, firmness, and skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of
 fine lines and wrinkles. Myrrh can also help heal sun damage, chapped skin, rashes,
and eczema. Smells a bit strong personally, but as I said before everyone is different

Neroli Essential Oil


Neroli essential oil is great for oily, sensitive, and mature skin. It helps to smooth fine
lines and tone sagging skin. This rejuvenating oil contains a natural chemical called citral,
which helps regenerate cells. For this reason, it is said to be very good at preventing and
 healing stretch marks, as well. Its antiseptic properties also balance oil production and
shrink the appearance of pores without drying skin. I love the smell personally.

Patchouli Essential Oil


Patchouli essential oil is particularly great for aging skin. It promotes new cell growth
and smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because it also has antiseptic,
antifungal, and antibacterial properties, it can also benefit skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne.

Tea Tree Essential Oil


Tea tree essential oil is one of the more well-known essential oils for acne-prone skin. It’s antibacterial properties help ward off acne-causing bacteria. It also helps to regulate oil
production, which can decrease the severity and incidence of breakouts. I use this when I have the spot breakouts and it actually works.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil


Ylang ylang essential oil is one of my favorite essential oils because of its rich, floral fragrance.
 It is helps to control oil production and minimize breakouts. It also helps regenerate skin cells, smoothing fine lines and improving skin elasticity. Another great essential oil for every skin type. I also love this smell.
