If you are a baby boomer, you may be experiencing dry skin seasonally or everyday. It can be a constant challenge to keep the skin moist and flexible, especially when menopause approaches or you live in the cold north or dry desert. I am a blue eyed blonde who has battled dry skin all my life. You can imagine how I feel now that I'm going through menopause and living in Wisconsin. Two of every three cases is cause for serious action when I have tried many products on the market with a qualified success.
It's hard to know what to buy there and with all the advertising market is difficult to know what to believe. Luckily for me, I am also a certified aromatherapist so I know the benefits essential oils can have on dry skin. are essential natural extracts of plants and flowers. They are the pure essence of a concentrated form of what the fragrance of the flower or plant really is. Some of the best oils to the skin are: mandarin, bergamot, lavender, geranium, palmarosa, ylang ylang, sandalwood, myrrh, rose and jasmine. Normally not to use "clean" or straight from the bottle since they can concentrate.
I like to take a carrier oil like almond oil and mixed with various oils for my own signature fragrances. You can also do this with unscented body lotion. You will be surprised at the wonderful fragrance that can come from a few drops of this and a few drops of that.
