While skin care manufacturers continually pour millions of dollars into  developing and advertising new products, many people find that essential oils  are a more natural and more effective way to keep skin healthy. Essential oils  should not be applied directly to the skin, as they may cause irritation, but  mixed with milder carrier oils, they can reduce the signs of aging and help keep  your skin healthy and fresh. Learn more about the top essential oils for facial  use.

Juniper. Juniper oil is derived through the steam  distillation of the needles, wood and fruit of the juniper tree. Juniper oil can  be used in a number of different ways and is an effective facial skin tonic.  According to Organic Facts, juniper oil acts as an astringent; it tightens  muscles and gives a feeling of firmness, fitness and youth. Juniper oil’s  antiseptic properties can also kill bacteria, helping to prevent infection in  acne sufferers.

Frankincense. Frankincense oil is recognized for its  antiaging properties. This essential oil has been used as a cosmetic since  ancient Egyptian times and continues to be popular to this day. Frankincense can  help prevent and reduce wrinkles, smoothing and refining the appearance of the  skin. It can also promote the growth of firm, new skin cells and rejuvenates the  skin.

Rosemary. Rosemary is a popular herb used during cooking,  particularly with meat dishes. Rosemary oil is a versatile essential oil, with a  number of different properties. Massaged into the face, rosemary oil can help  reduce the symptoms of dry skin. It can also rejuvenate mature skin and improve  circulation. Rosemary’s mild antiseptic properties can also prevent  infection.

Neem. Oil from the seed or fruit of the neem tree has been  used in traditional Indian medicine for many years. Neem oil is an effective  treatment for many skin conditions and can be used as an ingredient in soap to  help treat oily or greasy skin. Neem oil can also soothe and reduce the symptoms  of eczema and acne.

Lavender. The essential oil of lavender has long been  recognized for its calming properties, and many people use the oil to scent bed  linens to help cure insomnia. A pleasant, relaxing night’s sleep alone is  certainly enough to improve the health of facial skin, but the oil also has  other uses. Lavender oil can be used to treat eczema and acne, and can be  applied directly to the skin to treat insect bites and stings.
