Essential oils offer many benefits, both for our skin and our overall sense of wellbeing. That’s why we’ve included five unique essential oils in Yon-Ka’s famous “Quintessence”. If you aren’t already familiar, Quintessence is a blend of natural essential oils that can be found within Yon-Ka products. We’ll list the essential oils below. They work in unison to give you healthy skin by providing anti-aging and skin-clearing benefits.
One of the essential oils found within the Yon-Ka Quintessence is geranium. Its oils are extracted from the stems, leaves, and flowers of the geranium plant and then incorporated into a variety of our skincare products. And since it’s deemed to be non-toxic and non-irritating, geranium works well even for those with the most sensitive skin.
Today we’re going to cover the benefits of geranium and why it is an important part of the Yon-Ka Quintessence. Here’s what you need to know…
1. Geranium Can Help Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles
Geranium has been used dermatologically to help treat aging skin in a variety of studies. The reason many turn to this oil is because it’s able to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by tightening facial skin. Used regularly, it has been shown to slow down the effects of aging and give the skin a more youthful appearance.
2. It Assists in Healing & Preventing Acne
Since it has antimicrobial properties, geranium oil is perfect for those who are struggling with acne. Blemishes can often be a nightmare to deal with, as they can be painful and can decrease your self-esteem. If you’re looking for something to eliminate those pesky pimples, a product such as Juvenil, with geranium oil can assist in purifying the skin.
It works by helping to eliminate acne-causing bacteria, which will help heal any active blemishes you have while preventing more from appearing. Plus, geranium shouldn’t irritate your skin, so you don’t have to worry about it aggravating the skin further.
3. Geranium is Anti-Inflammatory
On the topic of acne, many blemishes can become rather inflamed — red, angry, and pretty sore. Luckily, geranium could help provide some soothing relief for these pimples. Research has already shown that rose geranium oil is a safe ingredient for anti-inflammatory medications. While these types of medications are typically used for arthritis and heart disease, geranium can also reduce the inflammatory response in the skin.
4. It’ll Help Reduce Muscle Tension
When we’re stressed, we may often find ourselves clenching our jaws and furrowing our brows. This can lead to discomfort, but it’s also not good for our skin. Facial tension can lead to fine lines and wrinkles over time, which is why you want to relieve muscle tension and soften the facial muscles, instead of having them tensed all day long. Applied topically, geranium oil can relieve this tension. As part of your skincare routine, geranium can help to give you a stress-free face throughout the day.
Why Geranium is Essential to Yon-Ka’s Quintessence
Our Quintessence is made up of five essential oils, which includes lavender, rosemary, thyme, cypress, and geranium. Each one of these oils has their own unique properties and offers incredible benefits to our skin. Geranium was specifically chosen to be part of this Quintessence because of its balancing and anti-aging properties. This includes the ability to help prevent sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Plus, geranium can also be used to boost cell renewal. This is especially important in giving skin a youthful glow.
