How To Apply Essential Oils
Applying essential oils is simple. First, buy a small bottle of each of the above mentioned essential oils and prepare an essential oil blend that suits your skin’s special needs. These oils can be found in health food stores and on the internet. When preparing the blend, put between two and four drops of each essential oil in the mix. Be sure to use essential oils that are 100% pure for the best and fastest results.
Because of how potent essential oils are, some oils may cause skin sensitivity. To avoid this, dilute the mixture by adding a carrier oil (such as olive or coconut oil). Apply the essential oil blend by gently massaging your face and neck. I recommend doing this 2-3 times per day. You will start seeing results in about a few days to about a week. Essential oils work quickly and effectively.
This is the perfect natural remedy and is free from drug-like side effects. The properties that are found in essential oils are so potent and effective that it truly makes them the simple secret to keeping your skin youthful and beautiful.
