The Best Essential Oils for the Face

September 08, 2017

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. 

Seed has the best essential oils for facial skincare

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.
Seed recommends lemon and grapefruit for dull skin
Essential Oils for 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.
Rosemary and Lemongrass for Combination and Oily Skin
Essential Oils for 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.
Essential Oils for 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.

Seed only uses 100% pure lavender essential oil in our plant-based lavender skin care products. This aromatherapy and wellness favorite boasts many aromatherapeutic and skincare benefits backed by sound scientific research.

Lavender, or Lavandula Angustifolia, is commonly grown throughout Europe, particularly in Bulgaria, France, and England. It has a sweet floral, fresh aroma, is herbaceous and may even be slightly camphorous. This slightly astringent essential oil works well on its own or can be used in blends to enhance its effects.

Jojoba Seed Oil has many skin care benefits. Why is Jojoba good for the skin? Let's learn more about this amazing ingredient.

 

What is Jojoba Seed Oil

First of all, the name Jojoba Oil is a little bit misleading. Jojoba Oil is not really
an oil in the traditional sense. It is actually a wax ester. In science speak, a wax ester is an ester of a fatty acid and a fatty alcohol. There are many naturally occurring wax esters. Beeswax, for example, is comprised of around 75% wax esters. Jojoba Seed Oil is 97% wax esters.

Mother's Day is not about big ticket gifts or an elaborate arrangement sent from the florist. The greatest gift you can give a person is your gratitude. Making someone feel loved and appreciated is not something that can be ordered online and shipped through Amazon Prime. Don’t wait for “later” or a “more convenient time” to show your gratitude for the people you love.

What can you do? We have some ideas that we would like to share today.
