 Invest in Essential Oils for Hair, Body

Essential oils have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use. Essential oils enter the body primarily in three ways¡Xapplied to the skin, inhaled, or ingested.

Ditch synthetic chemicals-induced skincare products and opt for safe, clean and natural products like essential oils which are full of antioxidants and vitamins vital for skin and hair. Invest in lavender oil for moisturising and to treat a dry scalp, suggest experts.


Amit Sarda, Managing Director at Soulflower and Shubhika Jain, founder of RAS Luxury Oils, have listed the benefits of different essential oils:

Lavender essential oil: Known for its cooling and calming effect, it is suitable for all skin types and its anti-inflammatory properties fight acne causing bacteria and inflammations. It moisturises, relieves itching, irritation, lightens scars, marks and soothes insect bites. It also relaxes muscles and boosts blood circulation.

Lavender essential oil also strengthens hair roots by improving blood circulation and helps get rid of dry scalp and split ends.

Ylang ylang essential oil: Suitable for all skin types and is great for treating oily or acne-prone skin while stimulating cell growth in order to fight the effects of ageing. It majorly helps in regeneration of skin cells, smoothening of fine lines and also improving skin elasticity.
