4 Essential Oils For Your Face & Hair We Love

Essential oils are a great way to replace the natural oils we produce that get lost through routine activities like spending time in the sun, washing, and styling.

To use essential oils in your face and hair, just put a few drops in your hands, rub them together and apply. You can also use essential oils to relieve stress.

1. For anti-aging, use argan oil.

You’ve probably heard of someone using argan oil in their hair, but did you know you can use it for your face, too? This oil is made from seeds of argan trees and is high in Vitamin E and fatty acids, so it’s more stable in the sun than other types of antioxidants.

That means that you’ll protect your skin and hair from the sun while nourishing it at the same time. Be careful though – if it doesn’t come in a glass bottle, it’s not really argan oil.

2. For firming, use dilo oil.

Dilo oil comes from Fiji and is rich in omegas 3, 6 and 9. Our bodies don’t naturally produce these fatty acids, so it’s important to replace them.

These fatty acids help your skin regulate oil production, so apply dilo oil to your skin and hair to stop any dryness or flaking. Dilo oil also has the added benefit of filling in fine lines by plumping up skin cells.

3. For acne, use tea tree oil.

We’ve all had those mornings in our adult life where we wake up and look in the mirror, only to discover a zit that seemingly time traveled to our face from our teenage years! Unfortunately, the idea that acne only affects teens is 100% incorrect. Adult acne happens, and tea tree oil can help!

Generally, instead of applying to your entire face, you use it with a q-tip as a spot treatment. Remember to dilute this very potent oil with water! Read more about tea tree oil.

4. For damage control, use black currant oil.

If you’ve done some kind of damage to your skin, black currant oil should be your go-to treatment for gentle nourishment.

From spending too much time in the sun to constantly being exposed to indoor and outdoor pollution, an anti-inflammatory oil like black currant oil is critical to skin and hair maintenance.

    Thank you for the tips I didn’t know about the Dilo oil and Black Currant oils. I make a face serum but these got away from me.
