Using Essential Oils In Beauty Products
Essential oils are all-natural and have unique aromatherapy and topical benefits; however, you'll want to learn a few important safety tips when using essential oils in skin and beauty products. Watch this video to learn how to make sure that you're using a proper skin-safe percentage and what kinds of essential oils are safe to choose for use in beauty products.
Tips: Make sure you are using the proper skin-safe percentage and dilution for your chosen body care product and conduct patch test to rule out any allergic reactions.
Not all essential oils are created equal, so opt for steam-distilled over cold-processed for skincare products to ensure they do not become photo-toxic when exposed to sunlight. Also, always verify that your chosen oil is safe to use on skin (some are very potent and are only suitable for aromatherapy uses).
