The reason we adore essential oils so much is because of the incredible aromatherapy benefits that don’t only mean they smell wonderful, they actually have some powerful healing benefits too.
There are three oils we especially love that are calming and relaxing after a long day, but when applied to the skin provide these same soothing and calming properties.
Keep reading to find out 3 of our favourite essential oils that will calm inflamed skin and relax a frazzled mind so you can put your feet up and float on cloud 9.

Lavender helps to soothe anxiety and leave you feeling completely at ease so you can enjoy a wonderful night’s rest.
Lavender is also excellent for calming inflamed, aggravated skin when a few drops are added to a carrier oil such as coconut oil, and then the mixture massaged lightly into the areas of concern.
Massaging it into the pulse points, temples and neck is also a great idea when you slip into bed at night. Of course, you can also choose to add a few drops to a diffuser and allow the soothing mist to transform your room into an oasis of calm.
