6 Ways to Apply Oils to the Skin

Emu oil
Emu oil has been used for thousands of years by Australian aboriginals to treat a variety of skin conditions. It is an excellent component of good skin care, whether prevention, symptom relief or accelerated healing of skin rashes is the goal.
Emu oil contains natural anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and bacteriostatic agents, which promote faster healing and help prevent scarring. As a moisturizer, it penetrates deep into the skin, without leaving a greasy film, and is non-comedogenic

Sea Buckthorn Oil Extract

Sea Buckthorn Oil Extract is manufactured by Floraleads GR from wildcrafted berries of Sea Buckthorn by multistage cold extraction into virgin olive oil. The proprietary extraction technology is based on the methods originally developed in Russia, where Sea Buckthorn oil became available as a commercial product in the middle of 20th century. It was further improved with advanced biocompatible techniques to obtain safe, potent, stable, all-natural skin care product. Because we do not fortify the extract and berries composition varies from one lot to another, the nutrients content on the label is given as a range. Sea Buckthorn oil extract is all natural product, free of artificial ingredients, traces of organic solvents, synthetic additives and preservatives.

Tea Tree Oil

Treat cuts, scrapes, insect bites and stings, and other minor skin wounds and irritations. Tea tree oil blends rapidly and easily with the skin’s own oils. In the process, the oil alters the chemical barrier of the skin, making it less hospitable to the growth of fungi and other organisms. In these ways, tea tree oil not only lessens the chance of infection, it also promotes healing and reduces the likelihood of scarring.

Fight fungal nail infections, jock itch, and athlete’s foot. Tea tree oil has been shown to be effective in countering Trichophyton, the fungus that causes numerous topical infections, including athlete’s foot and jock itch.

Mouthwashes and gargles

Mouthwashes and gargles can easily be made. Add 1-2 drops of the selected essential oil to a cup of distilled water. Mix well and use as a mouthwash or gargle. An example would be to add 3-4 drops of Tea Tree oil to a cup of distilled water or vinegar for use at the first sign of a sore throat.

Sprays and spritzers

Sprays and spritzers are fun to use. Simply fill a small, spray-topped, bottle with distilled water, and add the selected essential oil to the water. A good gauge is 10-15 drops of oil into four ounces of distilled water. Since oil and water do not mix, it is important to remember to shake the bottle before spraying. Once prepared, it can be sprayed onto the affected area of the skin three to four times a day.

Carrier oils:

The most common way to dilute a pure essential oil is with cold-pressed carrier oil. Carrier oils allow the essential oil to slowly permeate the skin, protecting it from possible inflammation. Jojoba, sesame, sweet almond, olive, rose hip, wheat germ, evening of primrose, grapeseed, kukui nut, sunflower, hazelnut, safflower, avocado or apricot kernel oils are the most commonly used. Several of the carrier oils can be combined and when essential oils are added, this makes for very nutrient-rich bath oil.
