Essential Oil Recomendations?

4 posts in this topic

Hello, I am looking for ideas for a good smelling essential oil that I can use in my Apple Cider Vinegar facial toner. The toner works great, but the smell is killing me and I'd hate for anyone else to smell it one me too. I have used mint extract in the past, but the menthol seemed to irritate my oily/sensitive skin.

And I'm a guy, so anything woodsy or marine smelling would be perfect. I've been looking at cedarwood, but I don't know if that'd bother my skin.

So if anyone has any recomendations on essential oils for the toner or experience using specific essential oils it'd be very much appreciated.

peppermint or spearmint may have topical anti androgen benefits. Things like lavender and lemongrass can repel mosquitos a bit. Or a lot, but I assume you want a subtle scent.

Yes pretty much anything that can at least neutralize the scent would be enough. I went bike riding with someone on a hot day last week and I could actually smell the ACV toner coming out of my pores as I was sweating; I really can't have that lol.

Thanks for your suggestions, I'll look into the lemongrass and lavender.

Rose is one of the most popular essential oils for the face.
