The Best Essential Oils for Skin Care
I’m personally an avid skin care user and also beauty product obsessed. I’m also a co-owner of a large online beauty community called MakeupTalk and have tried probably hundreds if not thousands of skin care and beauty products over the years. Once I became certified as an essential oil/wellness coach, I learned more about specific essential oils and how they can be utilized for skin care and I’ve been trying different combinations ever since. I’ve been incorporating essentials oils in my daily skin care and the results have been amazing. I want to share everything I’ve learned by using the oils myself as well as through my certification as an essential oil coach. I only use and recommend doTERRA essential oils because of their quality. If you have tried essential oils before just buying them off the shelf at the store, I highly recommend trying doTERRA essential oils. All essential oils on the market are not made equal and most oils sold in stores are not high quality affecting their potency. I only recommend doTERRA essential oils for my clients because of their quality. You can learn more about their quality here.
