Best Anti-Aging Essential Oils Posted on 21 May 13:19 by Healing Solutions , 0 comments

We all know the sayings “True beauty comes from within” and “Beauty is only skin deep” but that won’t keep us from trying to get healthier, more youthful looking skin. A lot of us spend so much time longing for it, especially as we age. We have some amazing products and tips to help you reach your anti-aging skin goals the chemical-free way!

What are the best essential oils for skin?

There are so many topical ointments, creams, and salves, both prescription and over the counter for us to use. Nowadays, most people prefer to reach for the non-toxic options and we can’t blame them! You can use any of these oils on their own or make combinations of two or more with a carrier oil to suit your needs. Just as it takes time to age, it will also take time for your skin to regenerate so allow at least thirty days to see signs of improvement. As with all products we use on our skin, be sure to perform a patch test prior to all over application to test for any skin sensitivities.

Anti-Aging Blend Essential Oil

Anti-Aging essential oil blend is an incredibly powerful, yet gentle blend that is safe to use on your skin when diluted with a carrier oil. This blend is comprised of Frankincense Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Myrrh Essential Oil, Rose Geranium Essential Oil, Sandalwood Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil and Lemon Essential Oil. This essential oil blend is the perfect combination for combating fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin tones, while also providing relief against inflammatory skin conditions. This blend takes on a woody aroma infused with strong floral undertones and is the perfect all-in-one natural anti-aging essential oil remedy.

For a super powerful anti-aging skincare blend we recommend applying 1 -2 drops of Anti-Aging blend essential oil to 1 teaspoon of our Rosehip Seed carrier oil before bed or in the morning for glowing more radiant skin!

Geranium Essential Oil

Geranium essential oil is an excellent choice for mature adult skin as it removes the toxins and dead skin cells while supporting new cell growth and hydration. This essential oil is great for all skin types and is well known for its ability to tone skin and rejuvenate the complexion. It assists in providing relief from inflammatory conditions like dermatitis, eczema, and rosacea that often diminish the glow of your skin. The geranium essential oil also supports the decrease of blemishes, age spots, and acne scars.

To enjoy the benefits of Geranium essential oil add one drop of oil to a teaspoon of your favorite face wash, lotion, or carrier oil and apply to a clean face, neck, and chest in the evenings or morning as part of your skincare regimen.

Sandalwood Essential Oil

Sandalwood essential oil is useful for regenerative skin care as it can stimulate the production of new cells and help with sun damaged and/or aging skin. The antioxidants in this oil help fight free radicals and being a natural astringent it tones and smoothes the surface of the skin while fighting signs of aging. Sandalwood essential oil is known for aiding skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties and is also a great choice for face. It may also be beneficial for acne-prone skin. It works to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines and illuminate your skin. This amazing oil is considered one of the best essential oils when it comes to skin care.

Mix Sandalwood essential oil with a carrier oil of your choice and apply directly to acne for relief. Place a few drops in 1 tablespoon of carrier oil and apply it on inflamed skin areas to soothe. Use this oil in a steam facial by adding a single drop into a bowl of hot, but not boiling, water and create a tent over the bowl with a towel and let the steam penetrate and infuse into your skin as you inhale giving you a calming sensation and supporting a youthful complexion.

Neroli Essential Oil

Neroli essential oil has circulation-stimulating and powerful antioxidant properties assisting with the goal of attaining youthful looking skin. This oil is known to help eliminate skin tags and prevent them from returning. Neroli essential oil has regenerating and rejuvenating benefits and is beneficial for every skin type. However, it's antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial, properties make it suitable for oily and blemished skin. It is also well-known for tightening the skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This wonderfully scented oil has some incredible anti-aging properties and should definitely be part of your skin care regimen.

When applying to the face and neck we recommend diluting to 1% in a carrier oil.

Wrinkle Preventative For Anyone Over-Twenty:

8 drops Neroli

5 drops Lavender

5 drops Fennel

3 drops German Chamomile

8 drops Geranium

1 drop Carrot

Dilute in 2 tablespoons of sweet almond carrier oil & apply them every night on the face and if you wish, on the neck and chest as far as the collar bone.

Carrot Seed Essential Oil

Carrot seed essential oil is a popular choice for mature skin as it is high in antioxidants and carotenoids and rich in vitamin E, which moisturizes the skin and vitamin C, which protects the skin from inflammation and harmful sun rays. It removes the dullness and rejuvenates the skin, giving it a firm and toned look. Carrot seed essential oil is great for all skin types but is especially beneficial for dry or mature aging skin. It has a very distinct aroma which may not be desired when using alone but is an excellent oil for more youthful looking skin.

Recommend applying 1 drop of Carrot Seed essential oil to a teaspoon of carrier oil of your choice or if you do not prefer the scent, try blending it with another essential oil listed on this page Yes along with a carrier oil and applying directly to the skin.

Rosehip Seed Carrier Oil

Rosehip seed carrier oil is considered a dry oil as it is non-greasy, light, and absorbs rather quickly. The scent of this oil is light and that of a nutty aroma, much different from a floral or rose scent that much may anticipate. The rosehip seed oil has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties along with essential fatty acids making it the perfect addition to your skincare regimen. It will help to decrease environmental damage and soothe mature skin. Naturally, rosehip seed oil has a high concentration of vitamin C and E, therefore, this oil can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, clear up blemishes and age spots, and stimulate collagen production and the growth of new cells. Additionally, rosehip seed oil works to tighten the skin and improve elasticity, giving you a more youthful look.

Apply this carrier oil at 100% strength or combine with other anti-aging essential oils for one powerhouse combination!
