When it comes to skin care, essential oils such as lavender and rose, and even neroli, are usually the ones which spring to mind. They are often seen as the ‘superstars’ of skin care, and are widely used to help soothe the skin, and to maintain a youthful appearance.
For people with allergies, or who dislike the scent of lavender, citrus, or rose, there are two often overlooked and undervalued essential oils with a long and successful history in skin care, frankincense Boswellia sacra, and geranium Pelargonium graveolens. These earthy sweet essential oils are also active ingredients in Prani Glow’s Purity Facial Ritual as they are ones of the best oils for detoxify our Lymphatic system.
Geranium, which has a fresh, green, uplifting scent, comes from the geranium flower. The oil is made by distilling the green parts of the plant, especially the leaves. The essential oil was used as far back in history as ancient Egyptian times, including use to treat cancerous tumors.
Geranium oil has anti-inflammatory properties, cicatrisant, antiseptic and antibacterial properties, which is why it was used in ancient herbal remedies for treating wounds, cuts and injuries. In addition to healing scrapes and scratches, these properties are exactly why geranium essential oil can help beautify the skin. It can clean the pores, and help prevent blemishes and blackheads.
Used together, frankincense and geranium can help to not only keep the skin clean and clear, but help keep the skin looking young and fresh. As an added advantage, both essential oils are uplifting,and frankincense has been used to improve the memory, and geranium to help settle hormonal imbalances.
