The Magic of Essential Oils

From the Trianon Health and Beauty Blog:
And here is a quote from another article about natural and healthy ways to care for aging skin, from Balance Me Beautiful:
 Essential oils are a must have for older skin because they can help  to counteract some of the main challenges facing mature skin. As skin ages after menopause, fewer blood vessels reach the skin’s surface,  and that’s a big problem because it’s the blood vessels that carry  nutrients to skin cells. Now, essential oils won’t create new  blood vessels, but the following oils can boost circulation, allowing  the remaining blood vessels to work more efficiently:
  • Coriander (Coriandrum sativum)
  • Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus)
  • Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens
  • Ginger (Zingiber officinale)
  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
To counter dryness and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles try:
  • Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)
  • Frankincense (Boswellia carteri)
  • Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea)
  • Neroli – also known as Orange Blossom (Citrus aurantium)
  • Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata)
