Why You Should be Using Essential Oils



We know you’re busy and might not have the time to read the whole article. So here’s a quick 3-line summary to take away!

Essential oils are a great way to get vitamins into your skin & hair in a healthy way

We advise only organic, no nasty pesticides thank you very much! 

Looking for that one magic oil that works on both hair and skin? Frankincense or Ylang Ylang.


Essential oils have been around for ages - Cleopatra reportedly had rose water to thank for her beautiful skin. We often read about essential oils and their use in aromatherapy, but rarely stop to think about how we can use them in our daily skincare and hair routine.

That’s why we’re here! We at The Alchemy Remedy are HUGE essential oil fans and we want to spread the word as to why we think that essential oils should be a crucial part of your skincare routine. Ready? Let’s dig in! 

First off…what do we mean by essential oils?

Essential oils are essentially (we couldn’t resist!) plant extracts. They are made by steaming or pressing various parts of a plant and capturing the compounds required.

You already know a ton of the plants used for essential oils. Rose, Lavender, Cedarwood, Lemongrass… the list goes on and on. 

Why should you be using them?

To be honest, the benefits of essential oils are endless. They are packed full of vitamins and are a really healthy way to nourish your skin and hair. Benefits include balancing skin and hair oils, calming irritations or skin redness, preserving skin moisture, slowing down the ageing process, reducing wrinkles, and stimulating hair growth…to name just a few! 

But just because they have amazing benefits, doesn't mean that you should go and buy all of the essential oils out there. As with any skincare routine, you should look into which would work best for you.

Which should you be using?

Longing for your hair to grow? Check out anything with Frankincense, Ylang- Ylang, Juniper Berry, and Ginger oil. They help to stimulate the dilation of your blood vessels, encouraging hair growth. Our Strengthening Oil would definitely help!

Looking to even out skin redness? Tangerine oil will be your best friend. Its high content of vitamin c reduces redness and evens out your skin tone.

Want to reduce acne breakouts? Lavender is the oil for you. With their antimicrobial properties, it works hard to prevent/reduce breakouts and soothe your skin.

Aiming to reduce hair loss? Peppermint, Ginger and Juniper Berry work hard to not only promote hair growth and reduce loss, but they also increase the thickness of your hair and eliminate any residue build-up.

Gunning to stop the facial ageing process? Aren’t we all…it’s pretty impossible to stop the ageing process, but we can definitely slow it down!  Take a look at Frankincense and Ylang-Ylang. They reduce inflammation in your body, helping to decelerate the ageing process.

Oh, and one last thing before you go. All of our essential oils are 100% organic. Why? We don’t want to be adding any nasty pesticides that could be absorbed by our skin. We strongly recommend that you make sure you’re buying organic too, otherwise you probably won’t see the results that you want.
