Top 10 Essential Oils For Skin Care and How to Use Them by Loving Essential Oils

Do you use essential oils for skin care? It's important to know that there are many different types of essential oils, and not all are appropriate for use on the face or other sensitive areas. Here we will discuss various ways of using essential oils for the skin as well as their benefits when applied topically.

Do you known that what you put on your skin is just as important as what you eat? Our skin acts like a sponge, absorbing what it is exposed to. Unfortunately, in many consumer skin care products harmful chemicals can be found.
