Smoother Skin For Summer | Best Skin Ever

Did you know that the skin is your body's largest organ and our immune system's first line of defense? The skin naturally protects us from pathogens and germs. Protecting your skin using healing essential oils is therefore worth the effort, especially during summer when humidity is at its peak. 

Luckily for you, we’ve compiled the best essential oils for healthy, glowing summer skin and how to use them. Read on to learn more.

What Essential Oils Are Best For Glowing Summer Skin?

Essential oils are made from different plant parts. Floral, wood, and resin oils have long been known to reduce the appearance of inflammation, redness, itchiness, dryness, oiliness, and irritation. 

Here are a few Edens Garden essential oils that help support summer skin. 


  • Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum): This potent oil contains compounds that give it a “tissue remodeling effect”.[1] Research shows that when diluted in Rosehip carrier oil after surgery, Helichrysum reduced inflammation, swelling, and bruising. 
  • Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii): A skincare powerhouse, Palmarosa balances sebum production, moisturizes skin, and supports wound healing. Palmarosa is ideal for dermatitis, acne, eczema, and psoriasis.[2]
  • Rose (Rosa centifolia): Rose oil is one of the most precious essential oils in the world.[3] A natural antioxidant, Rose mitigates free radical damage, heals dry, damaged skin, and reduces signs of aging. 
  • Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia): Lavender oil is by far the most studied essential oil. It helps heal burns, small wounds, insect bites, and inflammation. 


  • Patchouli (Pogostemom cablin): Patchouli's sesquiterpene and sesquiterpenol content gives it its anti-inflammatory properties.[4] It’s exceptional for all skin types including oily or dry. Patchouli is also used for fortifying aging skin and repelling insects.


  • Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica): The strength of the Cedar tree transposes itself into its essential oil counterpart.[5] Cedarwood has been used for a variety of skin issues including toning and tightening the skin, deterring biting insects, and stimulating hair growth. 


  • Frankincense CO2 (Boswellia carterii): Frankincense is often used in skincare and body care blends to enhance one's health for its immune-modulating properties. Its skin-protective nature helps reduce inflammation and breakouts.

Edens Garden has combined the best of essential oils for skincare in Best Skin Ever blend.

Its unique blend helps transform your skin, leaving mature skin looking more youthful and radiant. But it goes beyond just skincare. The soothing aroma of Cedarwood, calming Frankincense, and romantic Rose create a sensory delight that enhances your overall wellness. 

Is It Good To Rub Essential Oils On Your Skin?

If used undiluted or “neat,” essential oils can cause skin irritation, allergic reactions, burns, rashes, redness, and itching, especially in those with sensitive skin. Diluting essential oils with a carrier oil or unscented cream will prevent adverse skin reactions.

Here are a few guidelines for topical use:

  • Perform a skin patch test when applying new essential oils to rule out allergies to the oil.
  • For sensitive skin, dilute essential oils to 1%. 
  • Don't apply essential oils topically on children under the age of 2. 
  • Use only gentle essential oils on children between 2 and 10 years old. 
  • Hot oils such as Cinnamon, Clove Bud, Oregano, and others have dermal limits that should be followed to prevent skin reactions. 
  • Check and follow Edens Garden’s safety recommendations for essential oils on their product pages.
