There are a number of problems that can occur in the skin system.  On this webpage we will address a variety of relatively minor problems.  Other, more significant problems are addressed on separate pages and links to these are at the top of this page.  Here we will address and report peoples' experiences with a set of problems we have called skin blemishes or cosmetic problems.  These include:

• Age Spots (liver spots)

• Bags Under Eyes (dark circles)

• Chapped Skin (dry skin)

• Cracked Heels(heel fissures)

• Flabby Skin, Itchy Skin, Moles

• Oily Skin

• Skin Tags

• Stretch Marks

• Sun Spots

• Wrinkles.

Skin blemishes can come from natural aging, excesses in food or sun exposure, body stress during pregnancy, or a variety of other causes.  Essential oils are wonderful tools to help with skin problems.  Evidence of this is the number of commercial skin products that claim to include the benefits of natures products.  The problem is that in most commercial products they are using commercial grade plant derivatives and not pure therapeutic grade essential oils. But, this is good proof that essential oils have properties that can be very helpful with a variety of skin problems.

First, remember that basic skin hygiene and maintenance can lay the foundation for healthy skin.  The doTERRA company has developed a set of basic skin care products based on CPTG (certified pure therapeutic grade) essential oils and these or similar products should be used as the first line of defense for good skin care.  Click here to see a description of these skin care products.
