People have known about the beneficial effects of aromatic (essential) oils on the body since ancient times. These substances help activate energy, relieve fatigue and relax. In addition, essential oils can help a person in the fight against irritability and depression. They found their application in cosmetology and natural medicine.

Ordinary oils of plant origin are considered basic, they are often used as separate products that care for hair and skin. Essential oils contain components with a high concentration, so they are not used independently. Aromatic oils are used as additives to other care products. It is not recommended to add aromatic oils to industrial creams, which contain many synthetic components. High penetration of aromatic oils can lead to the fact that artificial additives of finished creams get into the skin cells, which is extremely undesirable. Therefore, the best option would be to mix essential oils with natural vegetable oils.

Application rules

What you need to know before using aromatic oils - Essential oils cannot be used in their pure form (exception: tea tree oil and lavender oil) - they are used as an active additive to base oils. - Mixtures including aromatic oils prepared for future use can be kept in the refrigerator for no longer than one week. - When using oils, caring for sensitive skin, it is recommended to use them in the evening. - You need to make sure that the product is of high quality, as well as test it for allergenicity. It is important to strictly observe safety precautions and take into account all contraindications. Our skin is an indicator of the health of the whole body. Acne, inflammation can talk about endocrine disorders and metabolic malfunctions. When the skin diminishes its protective functions, essential oils can help the body to improve cellular metabolism. In addition, aromatic oils positively affect the synthesis of a special protein (interferon), which is responsible for the functioning of the immune system, which heals and has an anti-inflammatory effect.
