Treatment for Rosacea
When taking my aromatherapy course I had a friend ask me what the best treatment for Rosacea was and whether I could use essential oils to create a cream for her, I began to do research and came up with the best essential oils to use in a face cream to help with this skin condition.
Essential Oils for Rosacea
- Chamomile (Roman) – has anti-inflamatory properties, eases puffiness and wrinkles
- Cypress – good for mature skin, oily skin, antiseptic and great for broken capillaries
- Geranium – Cell regenerator, great for broken capillaries, anti-oxidant and great for congested and mature skin
- Juniper – antiseptic properties, great for acne, dermatitis, blocked pores and inflammation
- Sandalwood – Anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, great on dry, aged, cracked and chapped skin
Part of the research was also to find essential oils that blend together well and the above do that well. When blending essential oils for creams it is important to blend base notes first then middle and then top, also a good blend will include a personfier, enhancer, equalizer, and a modifier.
For blending purposes the percentages of each should be:
- Personifier – 1 – 5%
- Enhancer – 50 – 80%
- Equalizer – 10 – 15%
- Modifier – 5 – 8%
Then when blending first add the base notes, the middle and then the top.
After doing the research and figuring out which of the above essential oils would blend well together, I decided on using 4 of the above Sandalwood, Chamomile, Cypress and Juniper.
