They can heal, soothe and protect your skin; reduce scarring; repel insects; stop itching due to dry skin, insect bites, or certain skin disorders; and much more. There are many oils that are useful in skin-care, but these five have the widest range of usefulness: CAUTION: Essential oils should never be applied to the skin full strength, and even diluted, they should be kept well away from the eyes and mucus membranes. Most are so concentrated that unless diluted with a “carrier oil,” (sometimes called a “fixed oil”) they can cause severe chemical type burns and scarring. If you accidentally get full-strength essential oil on your skin, immediately apply a vegetable oil like olive oil and see your doctor if the burning sensation is severe. Essential oils are not recommended for internal use. The majority are highly toxic if swallowed, and totally unsafe internally, unless supervised by an expert.
Clary SageClary sage is used to treat acne, boils, dandruff, hair loss, and skin inflammations or ulcers. It is also helpful in reducing oiliness and wrinkles. (Note: Do not use clary sage while pregnant, as it can cause miscarriage. In addition, you should never drink alcohol when using it, as the interaction can be dangerous.)
GeraniumGeranium has many uses in skin-care, being helpful in the treatment of acne, bruises, broken capillaries, burns, congested skin, cuts, dermatitis, eczema, lice, ringworm, ulcerated skin, and wounds. It’s excellent for oily or mature skin, tightens loose skin, and may help prevent varicose veins. (Note: There is a slight chance that frequent or long-term use might lead to contact dermatitis. If sensitivity develops, discontinue use.)
