We've discussed the many benefits of essential oils over the years here on the Seed blog. We haven't really talked about their different facial care benefits, though. We offer different types of facial care formulas, as skin is never one size fits all.
You may have noticed that we offer essential oil blends in addition to our ultra gentle fragrance free cleansers and moisturizers. In addition to adding a light and natural aroma, the essential oils serve a purpose. Today, we're going to talk about our favorite essential oils for the face here at Seed.
When selecting your Advanced Botanicals Facial Cleanser and Advanced Botanicals Facial Moisturizer, we are pleased to offer these options:
Fragrance Free, for those with very sensitive skin
If you are not very sensitive, we really recommend our Essential Oils blends. Choose these based on your main skin concerns.
Dull Skin -- It happens to all of us. As we age, our skin tends to lack the same clarity and even glow associated with our youth. In fact, you told us that this is one of your main skin concerns. There are two essential oils we have chosen in our brightening formula for duller skin: Lemon and Grapefruit. In addition to providing the skin with a more radiant appearance, lemon may help to gradually fade brown spots, while grapefruit oil contains a natural source of alpha hydroxy acids to give skin new life.
Combination and Oily Skin -- You want moisturized, healthy and soft skin. You do not want an oil slick. We totally understand that! Lemongrass and Rosemary essential oils are the perfect blend for combination/oily skin types. Lemongrass has natural astringent and skin healing properties, while rosemary is antibacterial and helps control excess sebum.
Dry Skin Types -- Whether your skin is just slightly dry or whether it is parched, Palmarosa essential oil can help. Known for being a skin balancing oil, it is ideal for caring for skin concerns such as eczema and psoriasis. Palmarosa is also nourishing and many believe it has cell renewal benefits.
