Most of the skin care products which are known to benefit contain essential oils. A wide range of aromatherapy oils are known to cure a variety of ailments, specified numbers are good for enriching the skin. Some beneficial essential oils are known to rejuvenate tissue and enhance metabolic functions of the skin. Blending therapeutic oils according to skin type has yielded good results.

You can easily blend some extracts at home for better results, but how do these oils help your skin? These aromatic liquid derivatives are nature's treasure chest of healing wonders. All you need to do is mix a few drops in pure oils like almond, olive and even avocado oil for your personalized home remedy to be ready.

These base or carrier oils are cold pressed from seeds, nuts, and fruits, while essential oils are called 'active ingredients'. Foraging mature skin, essential oils that are enhanced with estrogen, have shown good results in reducing aging signs and wrinkles. Fennel and Clary Sage are known to have anti-aging symptoms. Some effective ones are Sea Buckthorn and Cistus, which have a concentrated Vitamin A and astringent qualities that help firm up the skin.

The quality and purity of base liquids are essential as they should be able to moisturize and nourish the skin. Apricot derivative is excellent carrier oil for dry to normal skin and is nonirritant, even on sensitive skin. Hazelnut, Walnut extracts are slightly astringent and work well on oily skin but can be used on all skin types. Almond oil is full of ketones that help in cell rejuvenation and rebuilding of tissues, leading to increased elasticity.

It is fun creating your own blends that suit your skin. Just take the essential oils that you require and the base oil, add equal amounts of base oil with aromatic oils, mix them well and use it the way you desire- spas, face mask or even a diluted direct application on your body.

However, as these are highly potent, it is best to mix only 30 drops per ounce of base oil.
These tips are not restricted to use but works well for both men and women. Some essential oils can make the skin extra sensitive to sunlight, so avoid using them on the face- lemon, orange, clove, thyme, and cinnamon. Generally, these are safe for all types of skins.
