Your Ultimate Beauty Regimen Using Essential Oils
Okay ladies, we all want to look our best, feel our best, and be at our best and honestly at times that can be darn challenging! We work all day and then come home and work all night and then wonder why our complexion isn’t peaches and cream. We wonder why our skin is chapped and why our hair just never seems to look as great as the ladies in those shampoo commercials. Well ladies, here it is! Your ultimate beauty regimen custom made for you! By the way, it’s custom because you decide which essential oils to use.
Water sprays with a few drops of essential oils are handy for that quick pick-me-ups needed throughout the day.
The sprays are easy to make and it’s a good idea to keep several different ones available for whatever need might arise. The rosemary mist is an invigorating post-shower spray that you can apply after you’ve towel dried. Combine 6 drops of rosemary essential oil and a rosemary sprig with one teaspoon of olive in 5 ounces of water. You can also create other sprays using 6 drops of essential oil in 5 ounces water. The grapefruit essential oil is also known to promote feelings of happiness and peace and to combat feelings of fatigue and exhaustion.
At least once a month or whenever needed, make a bath mush and rejuvenate your skin.
Use 1/4 cup aloe gel, 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cup sea or rock salt, 1/4 cup heavy cream or powdered milk, 2 teaspoons jojoba oil, and 5 drops of essential oil. Mix the ingredients right before using and pour it into your bath water. Your skin will thank you for it!
Keep a massage oil and lotion made using your favorite essential oil handy.
Our bodies are sensitive to touch and massaging affected areas with the oils or lotions helps promote circulation. The massage oil and lotion not only help our emotional well-being, but it can also help to keep our skin feeling it’s best. For an energizing massage oil blend, mix 6 drops grapefruit oil with 4 drops of ginger essential oil in 1 ounce of carrier oil like sweet almond. Should you ever need it, here’s a great recipe for headaches. Mix 5 drops of lavender and 1 drop of peppermint essential oil into 1 tablespoon carrier oil.
One of the best things about this regimen is that the effects of the aromatherapy help to keep our emotions in a positive state.
So not only do we have our skin and body cared for, we have our minds cared for too! We’ll not only look great but feel great too! Keeping a positive mindset about the way we view ourselves is an important part of looking great and feeling great.
It is also important to note that the use of essential oils varies from person to person.
If we experience any type of redness or itching after the application of the essential oil, wash the area immediately. Also important is that aromatherapy does not replace proper medical treatment. Consult with your doctor or aromatherapy practitioner before starting any aromatherapy regimen.
