Scents, Salves & Supplements Stunning Skin 
We’d all like to have spectacular skin. There are everyday habits that do wonders, such as: proper diet, water consumption, and protection from sunlight. The next step is to use proven natural remedies to fine tune your flesh to its most balanced, beautiful state. Below are some great Essential Oils and Fixed oils to keep skin looking and feeling it's best. I've also included a few supplements that help keep skin healthy from the inside out.

Scents 

  

Essential oils must be properly diluted when used on skin. Add 10-20 drops of  oil or an  oil or oil  blend to 2 ounces of fixed oil (see salves below). Use 5- 20 drops in a bath (fill tub with water and oils, mix, then step in). Add 10-20 drops to 2 ounces of distilled water in a mister bottle to make a mist. Or, combine  15-20 drops with 2 ounces of liquid castile soap to wash with. Here are some essential oils (and their Latin names) that help heal skin.

Balsam  Peru (Myroxylon balsamum var. pereirae):  Heavily vanilla balsamic, this essential oil is warming, opening, and comforting. It has healing properties and when mixed with

carrier oil can be of great aid to dry, cracked skin.

Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii var. martinii) Palmarosa is a wild growing herbaceous plant, with very fragrant grassy leaves. The essential oil has a dry, rosy-floral scent. It works as an antiseptic and is great for controlling oily skin. It is used to treat acne, dermatitis, and sores. It is said to help reduce wrinkles and scars.

Salves 

Use these as the base to add your essential oils into for massage oils and skin ointments.

Argan Oil

Argan Oil: Made from the kernels of the Argan tree, this oils is fabulous for skin, hair and scalp. This oil can be used on the face as it does not clog skin like heavy oils can. It is great to heal burns and eczema. To moisturize your scalp and wash away flakes, massage Argan oil into your scalp at least an hour before you shampoo it out. You can also easily get rid of frizzies, by rubbing a drop in your hands and then smoothing it onto the frizzy spots of your hair.

Coconut Oil: This delicious smelling oil is excellent for moisturizing the skin and scalp. It is used for treating wounds, eczema and dermatitis. It contains anti-fungal properties which is helpful for healing skin and scalp fungal infections. It is very hard in the cold and becomes liquid in the heat.

Shea Butter: The shea nut comes from the Karite tree in Africa. This 

Shea Butter

butter made from it is renowned for preventing stretch marks, and maintaining elasticity in skin. 

Sweet Almond Oil: This popular massage oil base is great for most skin types and is known to sooth, soften, and fortify skin.

Jojoba Oil: This light non-greasy oil is quickly absorbed into skin leaving it supple and elastic

Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp Seed Oil: This oil has a nutty scent. It is a rich source of the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6, as well as gamma linolenic acid. It also contains Vitamin E. It may be used as a primary base oil or add-in depending on preference. 

Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip Seed Oil: Rosehip seed oil comes from the seed of a wild rose. It rejuvenates the skin and is highly respected for its tissue regenerating properties. It is used for burns, wrinkles and to help fade scars.

Evening Primrose Oil: This nourishing fixed oil is rich in vitamins and minerals. It's excellent for moisturizing dry skin and aiding against premature aging. It treats eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. 

Vitamin E. Oil: This vicious oil is generally mixed with olive oil so it will be pourable. It can penetrate below the skin's surface to revive damaged skin cells. It's employed to help skin overcome the harmful effects of the sun as well as: healing wounds, cuts, abrasions, and to minimize scars.   

Epsom Salt and Sea Salt: This is not a salve, but well worth a mention. When used in baths, Sea and Epsom salts helps cleanse, soften, and exfoliate skin. Salts can pull toxins from sore muscles and stimulate circulation. Use about ½ cup per bath along with your favorite essential oils. 

  

Supplements 

Treating you skin from the inside is important too. In addition to eating well and getting enough water, supplements can help. Here are a few I recommend for treating many skin problems. 

  

Multi-vitamin: One multi-vitamin taken with food and a healthy fat (like Olive, Flax Seed, or Fish oils) is a good insurance policy against vitamin deficiency and dull skin. Of course, a good daily diet is best, but we all miss something every now and again. 

Vitamin C: Having enough vitamin C in your diet can help heal and prevent sun damage from UV rays. It gives skin more elasticity and therefore can help prevent wrinkles.

  

Omega 3 Fatty Acids from Fish Oils: This supplement is important for skin to be at its best. It's also great to eat coldwater fish which supply these oils. This helps heal conditions such as: severely dry skin, eczema, dermatitis, cracked heels, thick patches of skin and more. It is highly recommended for people with heart conditions and has a wealth of additional nutritional benefits.  

Omega 3 Fatty Acids from Flax Seed Oil: If you are strict vegetarian, extra flax seed oil is a good substitute for fish oil. It may be taken as a supplement or mixed into dressings and sauces. In addition to healing rashes and dry skin, there has been some study that suggests flax seed oil has antiviral properties which prevent cold sores and shingles.
