Take a look at the labels of your favorite beauty products and you will find that they use one or more essential oils in them. We are going to give you an idea of how to use the essential oils directly without spending excess money:
1. Draw up a sweet smelling bath
We cannot stress the benefits of a sweet smelling hot bath enough? You just have to pour your favorite essential oil to your bath water and relax in it for as long as you want. Jasmine, chamomile and rose essential oils will be our picks!
2. Forget acne
Don’t let the beauty companies fool you into thinking that their magical products would cure your acne overnight. Instead, when you start making a face pack at home, add some drop of thyme, tea tree or calendula oil to it so that bacteria gets killed and your pimples don’t recur again.
3. Ensure your hair grows faster
If you are suffering from hair loss due to seasonal changes, add some drops of argan, castor or avocado oil to your shampoo and conditioner bottles and you will start seeing the difference within a month.
4. Make your own body mist
Fill one third of a spray bottle with distilled water and add lemon or rose essential oil to it. Take a little bit on the solution on your fingertip and smell to see if the fragrance is strong enough. Once you are satisfied, carry the bottle with you to feel refreshed at any time of the day.
5. Exfoliate your skin
Exfoliating your skin get rid of the sebum and dead skin cells which have been blocking your pores and stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin. Melt your bar of soap and add sugar, shea butter, glycerin and a few drops of lavender or almond essential oil to the mixture. Freeze until oil and cut into small cubes to use when you are taking your bath.
6. Avail Aromatherapy
You don’t have to own a diffuser to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy. Just make sure your surroundings are comfortable and then take a tablespoon of coconut oil or peppermint oil and apply it to your neck, chest and forehead. You will wake up feeling invigorated
Head to the market to buy small bottles of essential oils and they will take care of all your beauty needs for one whole year.
