magical benefits of essential oils for skin & hair
What Is Essential Oil?
Essential oils are extracted from plants through methods like distillation or evaporation. While essential oils are most famous for their aromatic capabilities, they also contain strong chemical properties that can be beneficial for health. Essential oils have long been used in alternative, Eastern, and homeopathic medicines thanks to their effectiveness and low risk of side effects. These vital oils also contain a wide range of medicinal and therapeutic properties that make them perfect for improving skin and hair health. While there are hundreds of essential oils to choose from, with benefits ranging from reducing wrinkles, exfoliating skin, healing scars, clearing acne to helping hair growth with strength and shine, the key is to use them properly. It can be either added to your skincare routine by mixing drops of essential oils with a cream, moisturizer, or a carrier oil like jojoba, coconut or argan oil.
Not every plant produces an essential oil, and not every essential oil found within a plant has significant benefits. But if you consider how many different plant types exist (and are still being discovered), there are plenty of powerful essential oils to go around. Just as plants use essential oils to protect themselves, we too can use the powerful, natural properties of essential oils to protect ourselves and promote a healthy body.

Common Benefits Of Essential Oils
For Topical Application
Essential Oils should be diluted when applied topically and should never be applied directly to the skin. All essential oils available through Skinluv should be diluted with a Carrier Oil (often referred to as ‘Base Oils’) of your choice. Carrier Oils are essential oils that ‘carry’ them to your skin and typically safe for direct, topical application on the skin. They are sometimes vegetable oils, such as Coconut Oil or Avocado Oil while others are derived from the seeds, kernels or nuts of a plant and are often developed through a process called cold pressing. Not all Carrier Oils are the same as some have a distinct aroma from their source while others are almost unscented. They also can differ in color, viscosity, and penetration speed.
Aromatherapy involves smelling essential oils to improve health. It’s a great way to change your mood quickly. As you breathe in, the oil’s aroma immediately stimulates your central nervous system, triggering an emotional response. There are several aromatherapy methods. Whichever method you choose, avoid direct contact with the essential oil and dilute it first.
