There are many essential oils that are wonderful for use with a healthy skin care routine. Frankincense and myrrh are two of my favorites. I often add a few drops of frankincense and myrrh to lotion to make it more rejuvenating for my skin.


I love adding essential oils to my skin care routine to really support healthy skin. When I have the occasional pimple I put frankincense on it. I am always amazed how quickly it works.


Try adding 10 drops of Young Living frankincense to the Sandalwood Moisture Cream for an awesome facial cream.


One of my favorite products for skin is Young Living’s Animal Scents Ointment. I use it all the time on my face, hands and anywhere else on my body I feel inclined. It leaves my skin soft and supple. It’s not just for animals. It also has myrrh and several other oils that are great for skin.
