If you haven’t made essential oils part of your daily skin care routine yet, then you’re missing out. The natural benefits of many essential oils can help reduce signs of aging, reduce acne, and so much more!

Personally, I incorporate essential oils into my skin care each day by adding a few drops of frankincense and tea tree essential oils to my face oil.

Due to the potency, when using essential oils for your skin, it’s important to dilute them with a carrier oil in order to avoid skin irritation. My favorite carrier oils are a blend by Skin Essence – Light, which is based on Jojoba Seed Oil. This carrier oil is perfect for someone with acne prone skin, like me!

Below you’ll find my top recommended essential oils for skin care. Each of the essential oils providing a specific benefit for everyone to add to their daily skin care routine.
