Rosehip Oil

The rosehip essential oil is high in fatty acids and it is a great source of anti-oxidants which makes it ideal for use on any kind of skin ailment. Rosehip also includes a form of Vitamin A that is similar to a vitamin used in most anti-aging products, Retin-A. Rosehip oil can be massaged directly onto the skin and provides a wonderful boost to the skins moisture as well. It can intensify the appearance of acne on the skin though so use with caution if you are particularly prone to acne. Even so, the oil regenerates the skin and even helps to safeguard it from future damage.


Lavender Oil

This calming oil is most known for its ability to help children sleep but it is also surprisingly a good way to get rid of stretch marks. The oil also has a calming effect on the skin and is good at creating an even tone which is quite beneficial for areas that have scars or dark spots. It is also a good way to rejuvenate the skin which makes it a common ingredient in many face creams and anti-aging creams. You can skip the expensive creams and use lavender oil all by itself though, simply mixing it with some carrier oil and massaging it gently into the skin.


Neroli Oil

A regenerative and restorative oil, neroli is extracted from orange blossoms and it has a delightful smell. The oil also fixes sagging skin and helps to check the growth of stretch marks. Although this oil doesn’t help to reverse stretch marks, it is wonderful to use when you expect the appearance of stretch marks such as when you become pregnant or lose or gain weight.


Patchouli Oil

This oil is very good at helping the skin to recover and get rid of scars, even scars that are large or deep in nature. The oil stimulates tissue regeneration which is how it helps to even out the skin and take care of scars. It also is great at moisturizing the skin which means that it works for stretch marks as well. Using this oil as a massage oil is a great way to help the areas of your skin that need it.
