Essential Oils For The Skin-Treasures From The Earth!
Essential oils are one of the great natural treasures that Earth provides with reparative, medicinal, and therapeutic properties. The concentrated oils from various flowers, fruits, herbs, and plants have been used for centuries all over the world.
Scientific research has shown that essential oils are not only potent, but carry astounding medicinal properties. For instance, the essential oil of oregano is 26 times more powerful as an antiseptic than the commercial ingredient, phenol which is used in many popular cleansing products.
Essential oils are unique in that they do not remain in the body like chemical drugs and so therefore, don’t leave any toxins behind. In fact, many essential oils have cell-rejuvenating properties that are recognized by major beauty manufactures.
Currently there are around 300 known essential oils. Each single oil can be used for many diverse and specific purposes. Neroli, carrot, chamomile, and lavender are just a few examples of essential oils that have amazing anti-aging effects on the skin.
