Most of us have experienced it at one point or another: dry, flaky and itchy skin. It’s not only uncomfortable, but it can also be unflattering. Fortunately, natural skin care alternatives like moisturizers made with essential oils are a great alternative for keeping dry skin healthy. 

 

Want to learn how to make DIY moisturizers or simply incorporate them into your daily skin care regime? Read on to learn more about these natural alternatives so that you can look, feel and smell fresh and ready to take on the world.

 

Essential Oil Safety Notes

 

If you’re new to the world of essential oils, there are a few things you should know. Though for the most part essential oils are very safe, do proceed with caution when using them topically.

 

  • Always dilute them with a natural carrier oil before using them topically.
  • When trying a new oil, first do test a patch on your skin to make sure you are not causing irritation. 
  • Use pure therapeutic grade organic oils when possible.
  • Don’t use essential oils if you have a serious skin condition, other health conditions, or are pregnant or nursing, without express direction from a professional.
  • Don’t ingest essential oils unless directed by a health care professional.

 

Carrier Oils

 

There are many different kinds of natural carrier oils which you can use as a base to dilute your essential oils with — coconut oil, Argan oil and jojoba oil are just a few of many options.

 

Start with2-3 drops per tablespoon or so and blend out until you have your desired strength. Experiment with different base and oil combinations until you find your perfect blend.

 

The Best Aromatherapy Essential Oils for Dry Skin

 

Chamomile Essential Oil

 

Chamomile is soothing and calming no matter which way you use it. When it comes to your skin, you’ll find that it’s a gentle natural anti-inflammatory. Plus, its gentle scent is easy to tolerate if you are sensitive to stronger smells. 

 

Cedarwood Essential Oil

 

Cedarwood can help to soothe skin inflammation and even reduce the severity of dry scalp and dry skin conditions like eczema.  As a natural antiseptic, it may also help to fight acne. 

 

Frankincense Essential Oil

 

Frankincense is an extremely beneficial oil for brightening the skin, and it has plenty of anti-aging properties too. It will soothe inflammation and minimize imperfections. Consider using a few drops as a part of your regular cleansing regime.

 

Geranium Essential Oil

 

Geranium oil has so many amazing uses and can be used on dry or combination skin for balance. It can tone and firm the skin, as well as reduce redness and irritation.

 

Lavender Essential Oil

 

Lavender is a great multi-purpose oil that is gentle and moisturizing. Not only does it smell great, it has anti-aging and healing properties.

 

Helichrysum Essential Oil

 

The best oil that you’ve never heard of, helichrysum is excellent for anti-aging and hydrating, and it may even protect your skin from ultraviolet rays.

 

 

Why choose essential oils for beauty and health?

Hi there, I’m very interested in your oils and using them for products I’m making here in Boulder to sell. I found your oils at refill revolution. Do you carry geranium or rose Otto oils? Also how do I learn more about wholesale options? I’m here in Boulder and would love the opportunity to visit you in gunbarrel. Thank you! Shelby Gray
