What are the best essential oils for skin?

 

You might notice a few oils that land on more than one list. Essential oils are pretty awesome! Their skin-supporting properties can sometimes be used to help different skin types.

 

The best essential oils for skin are:

These oils have properties that tend to regulate and normalize oil production:

Melaleuca Alternifolia (tea tree)

 

Geranium

For Dry, Chapped Skin:

 

If your skin tends to be dry and chapped, a deeply moisturizing oil like shea butter or cocoa butter is a good base.

Argan oil and rose hip oil are also good facial oils for deep moisture.
