Do you have oily skin? Excessive oil on the skin is caused by too much sebum being produced under the surface of the skin. Too much sebum can produce a greasy appearance on your skin resulting in blemishes like blackheads, spots or acne developing.
Some people are confused by using oils on oily skin, but Essential Oils will work on oily skin, reducing the production of sebum and improving your skins appearance.
Essential Oils for Oily Skin
The best essential oils to use for oily skin are Geranium, Lavender, Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Ylang Ylang. Geranium reduces the production of sebum, Lavender will control bacteria on the skin as it is antiseptic and Ylang Ylang also balances the secretion of sebum.
Again, I would only use a maximum of 3 essential oils in a product for the face. My Illuminate Serum can be used by all skin types, but is especially helpful for oily skin. It contains a blend Geranium, Lavender and Ylang Ylang Essential Oils with a carrier blend that is light and ideal for Oily Skin.
