The Truth About Essential Oils and Skin Type

The truth is out there, and it starts with active botanicals that nourish the skin from the outside in. Formulated and designed for all skin types, we are passionate believers in essential oil blends and the concentrated nutrition they give your skin—so much so that our professional blends contain 25% active ingredients. That’s more than you’ll find anywhere else. Read on for how essential oils can help your clients manage any skin type or condition and some tips on how to incorporate them into your facial treatments.


Dry Skin

Some of the best all-natural ingredients for those dealing with dry skin include rosemary, bergamot mint and geranium. Together they improve circulation, provide much needed moisture to combat dry, flaky skin, and stimulate oil production to boost hydration. Moisture Essential Oil Blend is packed with all three and will not only replenish the skin but support its natural ability to retain moisture.


Combo + Oily Skin

Those dealing with oily skin are in a constant battle to regulate oil production and excess sebum. This is where antioxidant-rich plant extracts such as lemongrass, bergamot, and cypress work together to get things under control, refine enlarged pores and boost regeneration. The Balance Refining Essential Oil Blend gets things back on track by providing the right nutrients to balance things out versus stripping the skin of the oil it needs—which can actually lead to more oil production.


Anti-Aging + Mature Skin

As your clients age their skin loses elasticity leaving them with fine lines and wrinkles. The right blend of essential oil ingredients can work together to reduce their appearance and restore firmness. The Rescue Essential Oil Blend combines botanicals such as rosewood to stimulate cells, marjoram to soothe and heal, lavender to balance, and carrot seed, which is an anti-aging powerhouse, to brighten, rejuvenate and visibly enhance firmness.


Acne-Prone Skin

Acne-prone skin often occurs because the sebaceous glands produce more sebum during a breakout. To help treat and heal, rely on all-natural botanicals such as tea tree to reduce bacteria and inflammation, spike lavender to balance oil and calm the skin, and clary sage to regenerate cells. While it may seem counterproductive to clients to add oil to their acne-prone skin, the right treatment such as Detox Essential Oil Blend will actually help heal and prevent breakouts.  


Sensitive Skin + Eczema + Rosacea

Red, irritated, flaky skin can be a challenge. Is it Eczema? Rosacea? Or just sensitivity? Calming redness and reducing inflammation are a big part of the solution when it comes to those dealing with sensitive skin. The Calm Essential Oil Blend uses lavender, geranium, roman chamomile, and frankincense to soothe, heal, balance, promote circulation, and rejuvenate—strengthening the skins’ natural defenses to promote healing.


All our essential oil blends can also be used in professional treatments during the Nourish, Mask and Finish stages.
