There are many good aroma oils for skin care. One of the things I’m happy about is the “astringent effect”. Here is a summary of typical aroma oils, what kind of oil should be used and how.
What is astringent action?
Convergence means “tightening the organization”. “Ren” means “shrink”. In ancient times, medicinal plants have been used to attach the surface of wounds. The most familiar thing that has a converging effect is tannin contained in tea such as black tea. It’s abundant in red wine, but when you put it in your mouth, it feels like your tongue shrinks. That is convergence.
The “astringent effect” of aroma oils (essential oils) used in aromatherapy is, for example, to tighten the skin and prevent or reduce sagging and wrinkles. It’s a particularly nice effect for women.
Recommended usage of astringent aroma oil (essential oil)
It is recommended to add astringent aroma oil (essential oil) to handmade lotion, mix it with clay pack, or add it to treatment oil. You can also take a bath. Both can be expected to have a skin care effect.
Aromatherapy is systemic. When it comes to skin care, you can use not only the face but also the body. Please use it not only for the stains and sagging of the face, but also for the sagging of your upper arm, stomach, etc.
(Essential oils used in aromatherapy are different from medicines, cosmetics, and quasi-drugs.)
