Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Do you wax your eyebrows on a regular basis? I do, and one of the things I used to dislike about the whole process was the raw, irritated skin afterwards. I also used to get these little whiteheads popping up the next day on the freshly waxed skin.

I decided to bring my essential oils with me to the salon. I asked my stylist one day to replace the white soothing cream that she was using with my essential oil instead. The result? I saw no more little whiteheads, and my skin was less irritated!

The first time around I tried Melrose essential oil blend and really loved the soothing effect. Melrose has a blend of Rosemary and Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) essential oils in it.

For the next appointment, I was out of Melrose and brought Lavender essential oil with me. Lavender actually burned a little, but I chose it for its benefits on the skin.

Around Christmastime, I chose Myrrh essential oil for the same beneficial effects. It was a bit sticky on the skin but overall was very soothing.

Last week I tried Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) essential oil, and I loved it! It gave me that cooling sensation on the skin that I was looking for.
