Some essential; oils can be mixed with your skin cream for different effects. For instance, two drops of rosemary in your skin cream will rewind the aging clock by slowing down effects of wrinkles. You can make body oil by adding 5 drops of your favorite essential oil to 1 teaspoonful of carrier oil such as sesame, jojoba, sweet almond, wheat germ or sunflower oil. These hydrate your skin and give you a relaxing scent. A few drops of basil, cedar wood or lavender sooths an itchy scalp while rosemary adds hair volume. Whichever essential oil you use, ensure it is consumed within a year from the time of opening the bottle for safety purposes.
