I have been a fan of using oils since I discovered the miracles they did for my skin and have been experimenting and recommending these oils since I started using them back in 2015. I have used many of them and settled with these three that worked the best on my stubborn blemishes, sun tan and visible pores to give me visibly amazing results. To believe the amazing properties of this mixture you must understand these ingredients so here it goes!
Wheatgerm Oil : Where do i even begin!? Wheatgerm is literally the embryo that is responsible to provide nutrition to the wheat plant and also the part we lose in the process of flour refining. Packed with antioxidants and several fatty acids like Oleic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Palmitic Acid and Stearic Fatty Acids which our body uses for various functions, the wheatgerm oil is a miracle! Not just that it is packed with a host of minerals and vitamins; especially the Vitamin E which we all know loves our skin!
This Beauty Oil helps our skin fight sun damage among other more serious issues like eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo and other skin infections. It provides a glow to the face and serves excellently as a night oil. I sometimes use a drop of this mixed in my moisturiser under my makeup to get a sheen!
Geranium Oil : If Oils were in a class, Geranium would easily be the topper. This oil has a good effect on almost every skin trouble you may think of! The granium stem and leaves of the Geranium plant when steam distilled produce this beauty which is rich in alpha pinene, myrcene, limonene, menthone, linalool, geranyl acetate, citronellol, geraniol and geranyl butyrate ! Like What!?
Yes! I feel you my friend. So here is English : The Oil has a plethora of uses like balancing hormones, relieving stress and depression, reducing symptoms of menopause and even lowering the blood pressure! But here is the one that we love most : It helps the skin with blemishes, wrinkles and sun damage, allergies and to some extent cell growth! As if these weren’t enough it helps our body get rid of toxins too! Two drops of Geranium Oil in 7 drops of carrier oil is all you need!
Jojoba Oil : (Ho-Ho-Ba Oil ) This oil is one of a kind as it imitates the waxy substance in our skin glands called sebum. This property helps it act as a natural conditioner for the skin. The Jojoba oil is actually a wax with a very low melting point thus making it stay in liquid state most of the time! Surprising right!? What even more interesting is that this oil helps in oil control! It also is a great addition for it’s help for under eye circles and chapped lip healing capacity.
This one is a multi- purpose oil that helps hair and nail cuticles as well. It helps fight dandruff and keeps hair shiny and long. The jojoba oil balances the texture f this mix so you may add as per your liking.
THE MIX : I add 4 drops of wheatgerm, 3 drops of geranium and around 4 drops of Jojoba oil for a one time application. Basically the geranium oil has a pungent fragrance so use it according to your tolerance level. Do a patch test and see if all these ingredients suit you. Though they’re normally non allergenic but you must try them first.
The overall benefits of these oils far exceed the benefits listed in so many products and high costing cosmetics no wonder my skin has been glowing like a firefly in a silent night! Try this and share the results with me in comments below!
