Essential Oils are important when creating skin care products. Over the weekend, I have been creating some of my products that I will be selling. One of the ingredients that I thought that were secondary are the essential oils. I have about twenty plus essential oils that I will be using amongst my products. The first product that I created successfully was a body butter. When I used the raw unrefined coco butter, the smell was so overpowering, I had to use some essential oils to die it down a bit.

When I went to open one of the boxes of the essential oils, I noticed that on the box, it showed the benefits of each of the essential oils. Legally, I am not allowed to make claims on my labeling when I go to label my products. Following FDA regulations, I have to state what’s in the products. I think knowing the importance of each ingredient, will help potential buyers know and understand what each product is for.

I will say one of the essential oils that I will be using is tea tree oil. This oil is great for treating acne because of the anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Lavender oil is a popular one that a lot of people use because of the health benefits that is produces. The antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties can help heal minor burns and bug bites. Also, it’s useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness. Another popular essential oil that has great benefits is geranium. This oil promotes beautiful and radiant skin. It can also treat acne, reduce inflammation, alleviate anxiety, and balance hormones in the body. The sweet smell in this oil can uplift your mood, lessen fatigue, and promote emotional wellness. Those are the most popular plant based and aromatherapy essential oils that are commonly used to treat the skin and promote greatness.

Some of the fruity essential oils also help your skin heal and become healthy as well. Lemon is an awesome essential oil to use. Lemon oil is a natural astringent. It has an anti-infection, detoxifying, antiseptic, disinfectant, and antifungal properties. Another good one to use is sweet orange oil. This can be considered an aromatherapy as well. This can be used to decreased to depression and used as a sedative. It’s also a diuretic and an antispasmodic.

There are several other essential oils that are beneficial to the skin, but I felt like these were some of the most popular ones that are very useful. Some other ones that are popular are turmeric oil because of it health benefits such as its ability to help fight some cancers, and tamanu oil because its ability to reduce the appearance of acne scars, eczema, stretch marks, skin rashes, and many other skin conditions.

Knowing what the ingredients in the products do for your body is important when your trying to figure out what to buy and what’s going to be beneficial for your skin.
