Here are our top 5 essential oil skin saviours:
This native Aotearoa New Zealand plant distillation has a warm, fresh, and gentle aroma. Mānuka oil gently enhances circulation, detoxing of the skin and stimulates lymphatic drainage, which is why it’s such a skin saviour. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antiviral with cleansing properties that are soothing to dry, itchy, eczema-prone skin. It’s great for clearing up acne and other skin blemishes, and it’s also a marvellous wound healer, making it a fantastic addition to your first aid kit.
2. Immortella / Everlasting
This flower distillation won’t make you immortal, but its anti-oxidants will help regenerate and preserve your skin. It has potent anti-inflammatory properties, making it very effective on blemished skin. In addition, its gentle antihistamine quality promotes a natural defence against skin allergies. With an aroma reminiscent of maple syrup with a hint of tobacco and wood smoke, you won’t only look younger, you’ll also smell great.
3. Rose Damask
Rose oil is a very fine, rich, and gentle flower distillation with cooling and astringent properties. It’s super effective at reducing wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes and calms dry skin conditions such as eczema. It’s highly beneficial for mature skin as it’s rich in antioxidants and has rejuvenating properties that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and promote a more youthful complexion. A must-have for everyone looking for an anti-ageing miracle oil!
4. Chamomile Roman
One of the most healing and soothing oils we know. It is perfect for calming irritated, red skin. The sweet, heady aroma with undertones of green herbs and apple is wonderfully balancing to the skin, mind, and body.
5. Geranium Rose
This skin-friendly oil has astringent properties, which help tighten and tone the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, its balancing effect on both oily and dry skin types makes it versatile for promoting a healthier complexion.
