Have you ever incorporated essential oils into your anti-aging skincare routine? Once you get the basic principles, it’s actually easy to get the hang of.
You’ll need an empty clean dropper bottle, your carrier oil and your essential oil. You mix them together and BOOM, you’ve got yourself an all natural, soothing anti-aging skincare routine. (I like to use it as an addition to my current skincare line instead of a substitute.)
It’s been said that during inhalation of an authentic certified organic or wildcrafted therapeutic grade essential oil, you are connecting to the very life force of the plant. The energetic vibration of the plant unites with the body harmonics within each of us. So, when you are using essential oils, it’s more than just about skincare, you are promoting a sense of overall well-being.
But which essential oils should you get?
For starters, you want to start with organic. Organic Infusions was kind enough to send me some samples of their essential oils and carrier oils to try out (all opinions are my own). Their oils are never diluted, altered, or synthetically modified.
Rose Essential Oil can be hydrating to dry, aging skin while possibly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Helichrysum Essential Oil may have skin regenerative components that appear to restore skin to its natural state of hydration and elasticity and essential oil experts recommend this essential oil for firming.
Essential Oils Anti-Aging Recipe
Here’s an essential oil recipe for anti-aging, courtesy of Rose Heart, Certified Master Aromatherapist.
1. Wash face, neck, and chest with Jojoba Oil.
2. Mist the face, neck, and chest with Rose Hydrosol Toner.
3. Mix 2 drops Helichrysum Essential Oil, 3 drops Rose Otto Essential Oil per 1 oz. Rosehip Carrier Oil. Apply this infusion and massage on to the face, neck and chest in circular motions.
Personally, I didn’t use Jojoba Oil, but I used Rosehip Seed Oil, which is amazing. I didn’t want to use coconut oil, as that is pore-clogging. At first, I made bottles with the Rose Otto oil alone and the Helichrysum alone, but you can certainly mix them into one bottle to get dual impact. All of these oils seemed the utmost high quality and I did notice more hydration and even firming from the Helichrysm on my neck.

Who wants to learn more about THAT? I know I do.
