Are there effective essential oils to use on my face?

There are so many essential oils out there, but I'm unsure as to what their purpose it when it comes to skincare. Are there any that you would say offer real results and are really good for your skin? Are there any dangers in using essential oils on your face?


Essential oils are very helpful when you have a good knowledge of them and you know how and when to use them. Not all oils are safe to use on the face, in fact, some may result in the formation of pigmentation on the skin if used and then exposed to the sun. The other thing to bear in mind, is WHAT results you want? Are you using them for hydration? For blood circulation? For breakouts? What is it that you are trying to achieve with the oils?
