- Coconut oil may be linked to many potential benefits for skin, including reducing inflammation, keeping skin moisturized and happy!
- Lime essential oil is one of our favorite EOs for skin care. It is a natural antioxidant, giving it the ability to help to remove free radicals that damage cells, including those of the skin. It also helps reduce signs of aging such as fine lines, sun spots, and wrinkles. Along with its added benefit of being astringent, this essential oil helps keep the skin firm.
- Peppermint essential oil is an excellent choice if you are trying to brighten your skin! Added to help give you that healthy radiant glow!
