Healthy glowing skin, we all want it! BUT HOW?

 At well:body Tribe we know addressing the root cause is the only way to create real, lasting change. Often when our skin is out of balance it’s our bodies way of speaking to us and telling us that there’s something going on internally, but we can also use our essential oils to nourish our skin as we work on internal healing.

Essential Oils For the Face

Lavender

A great starter oil, generally very gentle, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. Useful for many skin types.

Carrot Seed Oil

Minimizes wrinkles and helps smooth scars.

Frankincense

Anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, reduces scars and wrinkles. This is an endangered plant so be sure to purchase from sustainable sources.

Geranium

Astringent and balances the skin’s sebum.

Rose Otto

Regenerate mature skin.

Citrus oils are generally photo-toxic with the exception of sweet orange oil. This is not the same as bitter orange or wild orange. Using citrus oils on the skin before sun exposure can cause extreme burning, so it’s not recommended to use them for a daytime facial serum.
