Essential Oils

Written by  

The use of herbs and plants such as lavender, cinnamon, and manuka for medicinal purposes dates back to ancient times. With the natural trend gaining popularity with consumers, clients are looking to natural applications of plants, such as essential oils and aromatherapy, as alternatives to the treatments of a wide variety of skin conditions.

Lavender oil is widely considered one of the most versatile essential oils since it can be used as an analgesic, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory. It not only helps to prevent the growth of infection-causing bacteria on the skin, but also calms redness associated with acne and skin irritations. Lavender is also known to treat and soothe cuts, burns, bee stings, and bug bites; reduce itching caused by dry skin; and replenish the skin's moisture.

Cinnamon oil improves the quality, texture, tone, and complexion of skin due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It can be used to diminish fine lines by naturally plumping the skin and can also be used to plump the lips. This essential oil increases collagen levels for up to six hours after it is applied through cinnamaldehyde, its main chemical component.

Manuka oil serves a wide variety of purposes because of it high levels of leptospermone, isoleptospermone, and flavesone, chemicals that give the oil antimicrobial properties, as well as antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory benefits. Manuka oil can also be used to fade scars by promoting new cell growth in the affected areas.
