Use nutritious herbal oils to tackle the first signs of ageing
Want to tackle those fine lines around your eyes and mouth that hint at a few too many late nights? Try using herbal oils to give your skin some much-needed hydration and vitality.
If you baulk at the idea of covering your pimple-prone complexion in heavy oils, rest assured that these natural beauty products are packed full of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, as the Daily Mail reported.
Loraine Murray, natural beauty consultant at Weleda, told the newspaper: "A lot of people fear using oil will cause breakouts and make their skin greasy. But oils can be incredibly beneficial for all skin types - even those prone to spots.
"They can rebalance, moisturise, protect and brighten complexions, and improve texture and tone. Oils can do wonders for hair, especially to repair and condition dry locks or boost thinning tresses," she pointed out.
The kind of oil that will suit you best will depend on your skin type and condition. Argan oil, for example, is great for promoting skin elasticity and leaves it feeling silky and smooth after application. A little goes a long way, so just use a couple of drops on your face before you go to bed and massage it into your skin gently. You could also use it on those dry, chapped lips for some winter relief.
Suffering from dry skin? Use coconut oil to moisturise and hydrate your complexion and address those first signs of sagging. You can even use this product on sore skin to treat eczema, dermatitis and related skin conditions.
Avocado oil is another ideal solution for dry, coarse skin as it contains vitamins A, D and E, which are all essential for glowing, plumped up skin. Sesame oil, on the other hand, is often recommended to people who have normal skin and who want to protect their complexion against pollutants and the sun’s UV rays.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
