Aromatherapy for Aging Skin – More Essential Oils for Rejuvenating and Smoothening Your Skin
Is your skin getting wrinkly? Would you like to reclaim your more youthful and elastic skin? If so, chances are you’re using all sorts of fancy and expensive potions and lotions to liven it up. And most of those creams have more chemicals than you even want to know. How about adding all-natural aromatherapy to your arsenal? Read on for how to get started.
Aromatherapy for younger skin? It seems a bit far-fetched, but if it can work for colds, constipation, cellulite, arthritis, and bronchitis, why not for making your skin look younger?
All you need is select some of your favorite scents from those that are designed to help your skin health, and start putting them to use.
Here are some of the best known skin helpers:
1) Carrot seed
You know that carrots are good for eye sight, and for skin health as well, so why not carrot seeds. Get some carrot seed aromatherapy essential oil and add it to creams and carrier oils. It’s known to help restore elasticity as well as tone to skin that has become wrinkly, sagging, or sun damaged. How does it do that? One of its functions is that it helps detoxify the liver. For more powerful results, add some of the following essential oils and try the recipe below.
Frankincense reduces tension and anxiety, and has a reputation for rejuvenating skin, smoothening wrinkles, and even helping skin blemishes heal.
Elemi has effects that are similar to those of Frankincense. It is used for rejuvenating wrinkled skin as well. You can either use them together or replace the more expensive frankincense with elemi. In fact, elemi is often referred to as the “poor man’s frankincense.”
If you want to go all out, add neroli to the mix. It’s among the most expensive essential oils, so you may choose to skip it for the moment — or not.
It is excellent for lifting your spirit, which by itself already has a rejuvenating effect. But it also is said to promote cell regeneration and skin elasticity when you apply it to your skin — in a carrier oil of course.
Here’s the recipe if you want to use the above essential oils for rejuvenating your skin: Just blend 2 drops of two or more of the above oils with 2 teaspoons each of Jojoba and sweet almond oil (or use 4 teaspoons of Jojoba oil instead). Apply the mixture to your clean face every evening, and watch for results.
And to make the aromatherapy treatments even more powerful, consider combining them with EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).
