Essential Oils for Different Skin Types

Skin types can vary, for example skin may be drier in winter or more oily around the time of your period, and it can change several time between puberty and menopause, so review the oils that you use and change them according to your changing needs.

Essential oils for dry and sensitive skin

chamomile, geranium, lavender, hyssop, rose, patchouli, sandalwood, ylang-ylang, neroli.

Essential oils for oily skin

bergamot, cedarwood, cypress, lemon, juniper, frankincense, sage, fennel.

Essential oils for normal skin

chamomile (also for dry/sensitive), fennel (also for oily), geranium (all skin types), lavender (all skin types), lemon (also for oily), patchouli, rose, sandalwood (all of them also for dry/sensitive).

If you have combination skin (oily on the forehead, nose and chin area, and normal or dry elsewhere), use oils for oily skin on the greasy areas and oils for normal skin on the rest of the face.
