Why use essential oils for skincare? The skin is the largest organ of the body. It acts like a sponge absorbing everything we encounter. When we apply chemicals to our skin, they are absorbed, and it can create an inflammatory response possibly worsening the issue we are trying to resolve. So, it just makes sense to apply natural, chemical-free products to our skin to promote the healing process rather than exacerbate it. Also, essential oils have side benefits! In addition to helping promote healthy skin, they are working on your emotions and immune response.
