Essential Oils for Healthy Skin

Essential Oils for Healthy Skin

Skin health seems like one of those topics that could go on forever. There are so many types, causes, stages of what our skin goes through it is certainly not a ‘one size fits all’ situation, but generally what works… WORKS. 

You see our skin works like a map, in the sense of where acne and rashes, or fill in the blank with the name of the skin condition, appear on the body it is actually showing us which internal organs or parts of the body are inflamed and having issues.  

Face Glyph

In short, whatever your skin is saying on the outside, it’s telling us there is something going on inside, which also needs to be addressed. 

So while you are working on the inside, there are some natural steps you can take to ease the symptoms of what you are experiencing on the surface. Taking care to keep away from the chemicals found in most skin remedies, using essential oils is not only natural, they are an effective and delicate way to help heal sensitive skin. (With the right advice and mixtures.) 

What is our skin telling us?

Not only is our skin telling us there is some congestion/stress going on inside our bodies, it can be very clever with giving us an indication of where your focus needs to start. 

If a condition appears on the face, I can look at the Face Glyphics. This is the understanding that our entire body is a reflex organism, meaning if I have something appearing on my chin, it’s actually a reflex (sign or signal) that there’s a place in my body where there’s some toxicity, blockage, or inflammation.

This is the same for our entire body. If you look at a meridian chart of the body, each area represents an organ and where the skin condition presents is a clue to some stress that needs some TLC.

Essential Oils for Common Skin Conditions

When you’ve identified what exactly the underlying issue is that is causing your skin condition and start the journey to heal internally, essential oils are a great solution to help you to heal from the outside. 

Occurs when pores or hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells which then becomes prime real estate for breeding bacteria, particularly Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacteria. Acne breakouts can be triggered for various reasons such as hormones, stress, and unhealthy eating habits.

Essential Oils to help:
Rosemary – specifically targets and destroys the acne-causing bacteria P. acnes, damaging the cell walls and ultimately killing the bacterial cells themselves; also contains antibacterial properties.

Thyme – shown to be effective in fighting the bacteria that causes acne, while also soothing to the affected areas.

Oregano – shown to contain the strong antimicrobial activity against P. acnes and Staphylococcus epidermidis, another major acne-associated bacteria. 

Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)
A group of skin conditions that causes skin to become inflamed or irritated. Eczema can present differently for each person, looking dry, red, or itchy, with flare-ups appearing on different areas of the body. It’s thought that eczema is caused by an overactive immune system, causing an allergic reaction.  

Essential Oils to help:
Calendula – contains anti-inflammatory properties when applied to the skin, reducing swelling and pain; also been known to assist with retaining moisture, thereby it’s great for dry skin.

Peppermint – while this oil is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-septic properties, its minty aspect is soothing and cooling, which can ease eczema symptoms.

Patchouli – a great treatment for stress and common mental health issues which can be common triggers for flare-ups. 

Rosacea is a chronic skin disease that typically affects skin on the face. It tends to present as small, red, pus-filled bumps on the skin surface during flare-ups. Western medicine would have you believing that the cause and triggers of this skin condition is unknown. But as I’ve mentioned above, referring to the Face Glyph (and trusting your body to know what is going on), it will show the area of your body where you need to put your focus to heal your skin.

Essential Oils to help:
Lavender – contains amazing anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, while also soothing and nourishing to the skin

Tea Tree – with its anti-microbial properties, this oil can potentially kill irritating bacteria on the skin, making it a powerhouse combo with its anti-inflammatory properties that soothes redness and inflammation.

Geranium – contains antioxidant and astringent properties that gently cleanse the skin, while also containing anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help soothe redness, swelling and kill bacteria overgrowth that could cause further issues.

The carrier oil you use with any of the above essential oils can make for a great companion. Coconut, jojoba and sunflower carrier oils all add their own health benefits to help in your skin healing journey. Jojoba, specifically, is the closest oil in mimicking the skin’s natural production of sebum oils. Which means jojoba won’t leave a greasy, oily residue on the skin.

Our skin is our largest organ, and commonly referred to as the ‘third kidney’, and one of our body’s channels of elimination through perspiration. So not only do we need to take very good care of it, we also need to listen to it and respect what it is trying to tell us.
