5 DIY Essential Oil Skincare and Beauty Products

Skin troubles? Looking a little dull? YoungLiving essential oils can be a great boost to your current skincare routine– or could even be the basis of it. These naturally occurring, volatile, and typically aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.


Many common modern skincare products contain harmful chemicals, unsafeingredients, and, oftentimes, don’t produce visible changes! Beauty products containing essential oils can help to remedy a number of skin conditions — from acne to aging, dryness to oiliness, and help you to rediscover your glow– naturally.


*Not all essential oils are created equal! When using essential oils as skincare, remember to only use therapeutic grade oils– not just aromatic. These therapeutic grade oils are more gentle on the skin, and contain no harmful chemicals. YoungLiving’s full line of therapeutic essential oils are all you need to combat your skincare woes!  Pro tip– YoungLiving offers incredible benefits and up to 24% off if you sign up to be a distributor!
