Essential Oils For BeautyWhen using essential oils to moisturize the skin, simply add to a carrier oil such as Jojoba.

Another good tip is to purchase fragrance and lanolin free creams or lotions, from which you can create your own skin care products by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil.

The key to developing your own products is to determine what you want them to do.

Are you trying to fight cellulite? Then add some Lemon oil to your cream.

Are you trying to minimize the appearance of scar tissue? Patchouli is your answer here.
