Essential Oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural smell and essence of the plant.
When used on the skin, essential oils kill bacteria and fungi, as well as stimulate new cell growth by energizing the skin cells. This draws moisture deep into the skin, perpetuating a natural glow. Essential oils also increase circulation, creating a healthy blood flow that makes your skin look young and radiant.
I use essential oils in the formulation of all of my products, not only to restore your skin, but also as a natural fragrance instead of artificial fragrance. Each specific product that I have developed with essential oils has a specific formulation to target the skin.
Here are some of the benefits of our favorite essential oils:
