Who doesn't love the smell of a beautiful scent? Not only do great products help us look good, they make us feel good. Aromatherapy can invoke feelings of a calm, relaxing mood or excite us with a delightful scent.
At Skin Perfection, we have been developing natural and organic aromatherapy and spa oil products that have a lovely scent to enjoy. As much as possible, we use essential oils from nature instead of synthetic fragrance.
Essential oils are concentrated extracts of plants. Our natural and organic aromatherapy and spa oils are derived from nature, and our scents are DPG, Phthalate, and Alcohol-free.
Organic skincare is about more than just looking at your best. It’s much more holistic than that. Your complexion’s health and beauty are highly dependent on your overall health and wellness.
If you feel pleasant and relaxed, it shows on your face. If your immune system is suffering and you’re stressed out, that shows on your face, too.
This is why essential oils are such a significant factor in natural and organic skincare. Just by applying a product infused with the right essential oil, you’ll breathe it in throughout the day and night. In addition to vitamins and nutrients, essential oils provide aromatherapy.
They can allow you to feel calmer, more centered, and more relaxed with each deep, cleansing breath you take. You can experience the significant (and very noticeable) effects of essential oils and aromatherapy in many ways.

All aromas are DPG, Phthalate, and Alcohol-free!
Caring for your skin can be tricky sometimes. There are so many products on the market that come with claims of being the best at getting rid of wrinkles or other desired results. But you have to wonder, do they really work, and what’s even in them if they do?
Or do you?
Here’s the thing, if you use something all-natural rather than something that has all kinds of fillers, you don't have to worry or wonder what you're putting on your skin. There are so many ingredients that most of us can't even pronounce. So, why don’t we spend a little time talking about the top 7 essential oils for wrinkles, so you know what you need to add to your skincare routine?
Now we’re going to go over the best oils for combating wrinkles and what they do for your skin. And after, take a brief look at what carrier oils are the best for skin and anti-aging.
If you don’t already have this essential oil in your medicine cabinet, then you should go pick some up. Frankincense has many practical uses and benefits, but the one we’re talking about right here is fighting wrinkles.
This oil helps with wrinkles by reducing their appearance altogether. Studies are showing that it aids in the production of new skin cells. So, not only does it help to reduce wrinkle and line appearance, but it also helps brighten up your skin tone.
Rose oil has properties like antioxidants and antibacterial that help the skin look more vibrant. This oil helps the skin rejuvenate itself faster. Your skin will be able to renew itself more efficiently, so it doesn’t look dulled out.
Rose is also an anti-inflammatory. When you use it regularly, you’ll start seeing skin that doesn’t look so stressed and tired. Your skin will look bouncier and tighter.
This oil helps renew your complexion by generating new skin cells reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's excellent for mature complexions and anyone with hormonal imbalances. Clary sage balances out the oil production and other functions of the skin, so it looks clearer, tighter, and more youthful.
Myrrh is both an antiseptic and an antioxidant, so it has healing powers. It’s also good at adding moisture back to the skin. Dryness can lead to our skin looking very tired and older. When your skin is adequately hydrated, it retains some of its elasticity, which helps prevent and fight wrinkles and a general loosening of the skin.
The level of antioxidants in this oil is higher than most others. That means it’s perfect for anti-aging purposes. Carrot seed oil helps to tighten and tone your skin. You'll love the effect of lines and wrinkles being diminished. This oil will work well for any skin type. Your skin will look more balanced, brighter, and smoothed out.
Which comes from the coastal regions of Asia. While it’s relatively new to the skincare industry, it has been recently found to have antioxidant properties that combat against signs of aging. Ylang-ylang helps to regenerate skin cells, so wrinkles aren’t as pronounced.
This oil was found to repair lipids and proteins contained within the skin. By doing this, free-radicals get eliminated, and your skin looks smoother and younger.
Pomegranate oil is another one that’s good for renewing skin cells. It aids in skin-cell turnover by helping to create new ones. Drinking pomegranate juice can help with anti-aging. But, you can also use it topically with a carrier oil.
Why These Work
Free radicals are things that get to our skin and cause harm that can lead to aging, lines, and wrinkles. Antioxidants found in these oils fight off the free radicals. Essential oils also have other properties like anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antiseptic, helping with regenerating new cells and brightening your complexion.
We’ll start by looking at how you use essential oils when targeting existing wrinkles or preventing them in the future. Because these oils are all-natural, people can use them in different ways. They are typically either diffused into the air, rubbed on topically, or ingested.
When you’re using them to treat or prevent wrinkles, you’ll be applying them to your skin topically. Pure essential oils aren’t full of fillers, so you’ll want to dilute them. The oils are very potent. You can dilute them with a carrier oil. You’ll do this by mixing them in a separate bottle, or you can add drops of the desired oil to the container the carrier oil comes in.
The recommended general rule is to add ten drops of essential oil for every ½ oz. of carrier oil. Keep in mind that certain essential oils pair better with specific carrier oils. We’ll be touching on those as we go through the top 7 oils for wrinkles in just a moment.
Once you’ve made your mixture, this can now be used as a serum to be dabbed and rubbed into the skin. You can also get a roll-on bottle to make it easier to apply. It would be best if you used your serum twice a day for the best results.
Best Carrier Oils for Skin Care
These carrier oils have properties that provide benefits like increased absorption, moisturizing, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cells' rejuvenation. These are the best for pairing with essential oils used in skincare:
Using these natural oils for your skincare routine allows you to reap significant benefits while exactly knowing what we’re putting on our bodies. Pick one, or use a combination of these, and you’re sure to see results very soon.
Have you started following any of our recipes for creating homemade skin care recipes? You’ve likely noticed that we often include essential oils in them. Your preferred essential oil, added to the water phase of the lotion-making or serum-making process, can boost the effectiveness of your final product while adding a soothing or revitalizing scent. If you are a beginner, one rule of essential oils is to add a small amount first. Then, you can build on that scent until you get the right amount. You can always add more fragrance if needed, but you can't take away.
Conventional essential oils to avoid if you are typically sensitive as they may irritate:
If you have sensitive skin, you probably avoid scented skincare products as much as humanly possible. The chemically-laden fragrance is in abundance. You can find cosmetics and skincare products at boutiques and department stores chalked full of chemicals and synthetic ingredients. Any perfume or fragrance can do a number on sensitive skin. But aromas and essential oils can too. A scent can cause issues and inflame the skin. From redness to tiny bumps, it's usually best to avoid them at all costs.
Does that mean you have to go through your whole life without a pleasant scent to put on for special occasions or just when you’d like to feel a little bit fancy? Not. You can add essential oils to your unscented skincare products. Just follow the instructions in our video tutorial for adding a serum boosterto your serums, lotions, or creams.
Because essential oils are natural and organic, they help restore aging skin, fight free radicals, and assist age-defying products in rejuvenating your skin. They’re much less likely to react with sensitive skin and cause any side effects than synthetic scents. They’re much more apt to improve the condition of your complexion while giving you the benefits of aromatherapy at the same time.
When you clean your house with chemical-heavy cleansers, how do you feel? After breathing in all of those harmful chemicals, your head starts to spin and ache. Your skin feels like it’s coated with a film of toxins. However, if you trade in those harsh chemicals for a lighter, more natural cleanser and a natural air freshener, you’ll be amazed at how great you feel.
Instead of using many expensive and harmful chemical cleaners, dilute apple cider vinegar with water and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. The hardly noticeable odor of the vinegar will disappear as soon as it evaporates, leaving behind only the light, healthy, and therapeutic scent of the essential oil.
For a fresh homemade air freshener, add seven or eight drops of natural and organic essential oils to eight ounces of water in a spray bottle. Spray a mist wherever your house isn’t smelling its freshest. And you can use this same spray on smelly shoes, too.
