What is the Best Essential Oil?
Tea Tree Oil
Both anti-bacterial and clarifying, tea tree oil is one of the best topical treatments to soothe active blemishes. Apply a small amount to the blemish-prone area and allow to dry. Our top pick is the Australian Bodycare Pure Tea Tree Oil.
A botanical essential oil that we’d describe as energising and invigorating, eucalyptus is often used to scent bath and body products. Often recommended to revive the senses when suffering from a cold, eucalyptus is a wonderful scent that’s even found in the cult Eve Lom Gel Cleanser.
A key essential oil in aromatherapy, Clary Sage can provide stress relief and improved circulation when applied to the skin. The Aromatherapy Associates Inner Strength Roller Ball is an expert blend of Clary Sage, Cardamom and Frankincense Oils, working in synergy to promote a greater sense of balance and inner strength.
Not just a type of tea, Chamomile is one of the best essential oils to ease negative feelings and reduce anxiety, instead encouraging calmness. Acting as a way to help soothe you to sleep and fight insomnia, we love using the Aesop Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque along with the Darphin Chamomile Aromatic Care Oil (a blend of Chamomile and Sage Essential Oils, Sunflower Seed Oil, Jojoba and Sweet Almond Oil)
Sourced from the Bitter Orange Tree, Neroli is created after steam-distilling its flowers. Providing multiple benefits for the skin and an energising scent, Neroli makes an ideal ingredient in skincare products such as the iconic Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. As two of the key benefits, Neroli is highly anti-inflammatory and can help to heal minor skin conditions.
A naturally citrussy scent, lemon essential oil can be used to combat fatigue and boost your mood. The ESPA Invigorating Face Wash is a nourishing blend of essential oils and fruit extracts to keep the skin clear and refreshed with moisture.
