  Using Essential Oils for Your Skin! Essential Oils

Always mix essential oils in a base such as your bathing water or Nature's Sunshine Massage Oil for applying to the skin.  The following can be used for aromatherapy for general skin care:

3 parts Chamomile
1 part Geranium
1 part Rose

Add 4 to 6 drops of this blend to bathing water or it can be used in a facial steam bath.  For a facial steam bath add 3 to 5 drops of the blend to a large bowl of steaming hot water.  With a towel covering your head, bend your face over the bowl.  Close your eyes and allow the steam to rise into your face for about 5 minutes.  The facial steam bath can also be used with essential oils to relieve respiratory congestion.
