5 Flowers for Soothing Skin and Improving Mood

When it comes to florals, options abound. To narrow the flower field, holistic health practitioner Hope Gillerman recommends starting with these five oils.


| July/August 2016


Geranium: One of the most celebrated oils in aromatherapy, geranium boasts olfactory and topical benefits. It’s naturally antibacterial and often used to promote emotional stability.

Helichrysum: A healing oil, helichrysum is reported to help fade scars and regenerate skin tissue. Helichrysum essential oil is often referred to as “immortelle” and may be effective at treating acne.

Lavender: This powerhouse oil is reported to treat skin and calm the mind. Research confirms that the scent of lavender produces mild calming effects. Use it at bedtime and keep a roller oil at work to help relieve stress.

Neroli: Essential oil of neroli comes from the blossoms of orange trees. Used to  calm the mind and support skin regeneration, neroli is known for its reported skin- and mood-brightening effects. It’s also a wonderful astringent. Neroli should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women. Some also caution against using it when you need to be alert, such as when driving.

Rose: As the queen of flowers, rose owns total-body healing. Topically, it may contribute to capillary health and help reduce redness while nourishing dry skin. For the mind, the scent of rose offers a sense of calm.

These flower-infused companies create organic, wildcrafted self-care solutions:

The article refers to floral essential oils, but many of the links are to companies that make flower essences. These are entirely different things. For those who are not familiar, this is confusing. In an article about flower healing, certainly the differences should be explained, or at least resources offered to sites or experts who explain this.
