Essential oils and its beauty benefits

This is the continuation of my previous post. Here the beauty benefits of rosewood oil and bergamot oil are discussed. It is recommended that the essential oil should not be taken internally and it should be used in diluted form.

Rosewood oil:
It is natural oil extracted from rosewood. As it contains anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, it has both medicinal and beauty benefits. It boosts the immune system and it cures the fever, cold, nausea and headaches. It regenerates the skin and it is suitable for dry & oily skin. It can used regularly to combat the premature aging. Also it helps to make the skin smooth and excellent in removing the scars, stretch marks and fine lines.

Beauty tips with Rosewood oil:
1. Mix it with almond oil or jojoba oil and massage the face and body with it to remove the toxins from the skin.
2. Mix it with safflower oil and apply it on the skin after bath to get blemish free and flawless skin.
3. Just mix 20 drops of rosewood oil with your regular skin lotion to get clean, soft, bright and smooth skin. Use it regularly to get better result.
4. Apply rosewood oil to the face to clear unnecessary sebum and to cure acne breakouts. This tip is not suitable for sensitive skin type.
5. Add few drops of it to mild shampoo and shake it well. Use this to wash the hair, so that the fragrance remains even after the hair wash.

Bergamot oil:
This is fresh and rich aroma oil named after the Italian city, Bergamo. It has excellent uplifting and stimulating fragrance. It contains anti-depressant properties and so it is excellent in relieving mental tension. Moreover it has anti-biotic & disinfectant properties which help to treat the problems related to stomach, kidney and liver. It is recommended not to use this essential oil while stepping out in the sun.

Beauty tips with Bergamot oil:
1. Mix it with the aloe-Vera gel into ratio 1:5 and use this mixture to treat the acne on the skin.
2. Add 5 drops of it to the warm water and take bath with it to get the soothing and blemish free skin.
3. Apply this oil on the hair to get a clean and infection free scalp. It can be added to the shampoo to wash the hair to get shiny and dense hair.
4. Apply this on the feet to treat the cracked heels. It can also be used to cure the psoriasis and eczema.
5. Steam the face with few drops of Bergamot oil to fight acne. This would also prevent the aging of skin.

I am suggesting that the above discussed essential oils should be used in diluted form or mix with carrier oils to avoid adverse effects. Please read how to use the essential oils from my previous post to get good result. Follow simple beauty secrets and stay with natural beauty forever.
