There are so many wonderful essential and other plant oils on the market that it is often hard to determine which one is best for your skin. Sometimes the easiest way to choose the optimal oil for your skin is to identify what kind of skin type you have and go from there. Depending on whether you have oily or dry skin, or even aging or combination skin types will help you decide which ones are the most beneficial. Interestingly, many oils have dual benefits and can be used for more than one skin type.

If you are thinking of making up your own blends of essential and other plant oils for your own skin type, it is well to remember that essential oils are extremely concentrated, and should never be used undiluted. The art of mixing essential and other plant oils to achieve desired therapeutic and general health-related effects is known as aromatherapy.  Unless you have a good knowledge of the various oils and their characteristics, it is wise to depend on blends that have been put together by experienced aromatherapists who can achieve the best effects without risk of creating skin problems.  Of course, even the most experienced specialists in this field cannot predict whether any particular individual might be allergic to any given oil.  It is therefore important to patch test an oil blend to make sure there will be no reaction to any of the ingredients.

If you choose to go with Necessity’s skincare range, thankfully you don’t have to be concerned about choosing the right ingredients and concentrations of oils. We have created a variety of quality products with just the right blend of essential and other plant oils to nurture and protect the skin, and TGA-Listed products achieve amazing therapeutic effects.
