Have you ever bought a body scrub or skin care lotion that provided great results but had a scent that was overpowering or you were just particularly sensitive to? This often happens with commercially produced skin care products. They are sometimes heavily perfumed or even have a medicine-like scent. So how can you get great skin care while avoiding the intense, even irritating smell? You might want to give organic skincare products a try. They typically contain natural essential oils that possess scents that are not only pleasant but also provide aromatherapy benefits.
There is a wide variety of natural essential oils all with their own unique scent. There are floral scents such as lavender, fruit scents such as coconut or naturally methylated scents such as eucalyptus. Finding a skin care product with a natural scent you like can make you feel good inside and out.
Popular Types of Natural Essential Oils
While there are many different natural essential oils, there are those with scents and aromatherapy benefits that are more popular and commonly found in organic skin care products. Some of these scents are also found in commercially produced products as well but are often artificially enhanced. This typically reduces or neutralizes the aromatic benefits.
Extracted from the plant’s flowers, lavender is one of the most popular natural essential oils. Not only does it have a lovely scent, it has stress relieving properties. Its name stems from the latin word lavera which means to wash.
Using organic skin care products made with lavender oil can help melt stress and anxiety away. It is often used by massage therapists to help relax their clients. Because of its stress relieving properties, it can also help promote a good night’s sleep.
While one of the natural essential oils used more extensively in hair care, rosemary offers many skin care benefits as well. It possesses antimicrobial and antiseptic qualities that make it beneficial in efforts to relieve eczema, dermatitis, oily skin, and acne. Stimulating mental activity is said to be among its aromatherapy benefits, reducing mental fatigue and forgetfulness. Inhaling the scent of rosemary can renew your mental energy.
Extracted from the Eucalyptus tree, native to Australia, the scent of this natural essential oil is intense and easily recognizable. Eucalyptus has strong aromatherapy benefits in regards to respiratory issues such as congestion and can enhance concentration. It also has cooling properties which can help fight fevers and migraines as well as help relieve muscle aches and pains.
Citrus natural essential oils are extracted from the rind or the skin of the fruit. While their scents vary depending on which citrus fruit the oil has been extracted from, they all tend to have a very clean and refreshing scent. Many have calming or stress relieving aromatherapy benefits which can re-energize the spirit. Some also provide skin care benefits for those who suffer from psoriasis and eczema.
Extracted from the seeds of the green tea plant, green tea essential oil is widely used in skincare products. When used in aromatherapy it has soothing benefits. It is popular with massage therapists because its anti-inflammatory properties can help relax a client’s muscles.
