Earth’s natural and precious gifts offer a plethora of botanicals that can help heal our skin from sun damage, free radicals, expression lines, and other skin conditions such as rosacea and acne. Below we will share our favorite essential oils to repair skin damage, minimize lines and wrinkles and aid in maintaining that healthy, youthful glow for years to come.
Organic Rose Essential Oil
“A Rose by Any Other Name…” Well, then again...
There are many types of Rose Oil, each with their own skin care benefits, and all with one of most beloved scents on the planet. However, for aging skin,Rose Otto is not only the most effective, it is by far superior for topical use. It takes 60 roses to produce a single drop of this purely divine oil. Rose Otto is steam distilled rather than solvent extracted, which means there is no chance of residual solvent ingredients being put on to and absorbed by your skin. Scientific studies have proven that Rose Oil improves permeation, which means it can be absorbed deeply into skin tissues (the dermis), which is what makes it so amazing for anti-aging. And it brings its friends to the party by carrying other anti-aging and repairing oils deeper into the skin. Rose Otto Oil is also an anti-inflammatory shown to be hugely beneficial to those suffering from acne, “monthly” breakouts, rosacea, and other skin conditions. The antioxidants found in this oil promote skin cell turnover, relieving dryness and leaving skin with a radiant glow. Last but not least, this special oil is literally healing for the whole person with the highest vibration level of all essential oils, oscillating at 320 megahertz. An ABSOLUTE MUST.
Organic Carrot Seed Essential Oil
Organic Carrot Seed Oil (Daucus carota), has long been an essential oil for skincare used by those ‘in-the-know’ people who share it with those closest to them. Affectionately known as ‘Queen Anne Lace’ due to the lovely white flowers that grace the tops of these wild carrots, it is actually the seeds that are steam-distilled to create the essential oil. Gaining popularity for its anti-aging benefits, it is now being widely used in skincare products. Once again, this essential oil is packed full of antioxidants which not only protect our skin from free radicals, but also fights against lines & wrinkles by firming and toning the skin. Vitamin C boosts collagen production, while Vitamin E moisturizes. The outermost layer of our skin (the epidermis) loves to absorb carotenoids, which makes up about 40% of Carrot Seed Oil - these carotenoids stimulate epidural regeneration while softening and smoothing the skin. This natural oil is wonderful for sensitive skin and also for repairing sun damage & balancing oil production while still managing to help keep the skin hydrated. Yes, please!
Organic Frankincense Essential Oil
Since ancient times, people have utilized the numerous healing properties of Frankincense. History has shown there to be a myriad of uses for this divine product of nature; it was one of the three gifts presented to the infant Jesus from the Magi, has had widespread uses in Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Native American ceremonies for centuries that continue to this day. The Boswellia tree, which grows most commonly in Africa, the Middle East, India and the Arabian Peninsula, produces a resin that is steam-distilled to create the essential oil. While many ancient remedies from this resin are gaining much new attention from medical researchers, the use of this substance for skin care has been around a while... just ask Cleopatra. Frankincense Essential Oil (Boswellia carteri) has astringent properties which make it an ideal choice for repairing skin damage and anti-aging purposes; it tones and tightens the skin & reduces pore size. While boswellic acids help to kill bacteria for those who suffer from acne and acts as an anti-inflammatory soothing the skin, it's ability to promote wound healing will improve the appearance of scars. Another favorite property it boasts are antioxidants, which we love for our skin - keep those nasty free-rads away, thank you very much! Because Frankincense has cytophylactic properties, it’s been shown to repair and rebuild skin cells, and actually stimulate new cell growth. All that superpower and a magically evocative aroma...need we say more?

It moisturizes like a dream and slows the signs of aging around the eyes, nose and mouth with powerful antioxidants which fight free radical damage. According to research, lavender lessential oil helps your body produce three of its most powerful antioxidants; glutathione, catalase and superoxide dismutase (SOD). These particular antioxidants are responsible for detoxification, antioxidant defense, and modulating cell rejuvenation & proliferation and help increase your skin's life span. Known to help heal eczema, psoriasis, clear up acne and other skin conditions, as well as for reducing discoloration such as dark spots, hyperpigmentation, redness & blotchiness, this blessed oil should be a staple in any skincare routine.
Organic Helichrysum Essential Oil
The "Flower Of Beauty", Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum) is a flowering plant of the daisy family (Asteraceae), generally found in Southern Europe & the Mediterranean. Helichrysum, like most yellow blooming flowers, is wonderful for healing inflammation, so is useful for skin conditions/irritations such as eczema & dermatitis and even healing broken blood vessels. It is often referred to as Immortalle, or Everlasting; perhaps due to the radical longevity of the cut bouquets or its superpower anti-aging properties when extracted as an essential oil. Whatever the case may be, Helichrysum is one organic oil that may prove ‘essential’ to our skin care routine. Keeping the skin hydrated with emollients, smoothing skin tone & texture, and reducing the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles is just the beginning. This botanical is also known for its ability to promote wound healing and contains regenerative compounds that stimulate collagen production, improves microcirculation, promotes skin regeneration and healthy skin cell growth.
Organic Geranium Essential Oil
With the ability to balance the pH of your skin, the essential oil of Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) is able to regulate oil production, so if your skin produces too much oil, it slows down the process & if your skin is naturally or environmentally dry, it increases moisture. This is an oil of blessing for all skin types!
Indiginous to South Africa, this popular perennial shrub is now grown throughout the world. Its sweet, uplifting scent is used to relieve a quite numerous amount of ailments in aromatherapy and has many uses as a tonic for improving overall general health. A fantiasic oil for maturing skin, Geranium oil removes toxins and has an astringent quality which causes the skin to tighten & contract diminishing signs of aging such as sagging and wrinkling, especially when used regularly. It eliminates dead skin cells and its cicatrizant quality promotes the regeneration of new, healthy skin cells which makes it ideal for acne scars by renewing blemished tissues. It also regulates melatonin to reduce age spots. Not enough? This oil also increases the production of collagen, thus positively impacting the elasticity of our skin. For skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, dermatitis, & eczema, Geranium oil can provide relief and restore the glow to skin. It's like this essential oil was MADE to love on our skin!
Organic Jojoba Oil
Ravenscroft uses organic Jojoba as our base oil, since it is closest to the natural moisture (sebum) in our skin.
Joboba oil (Simmondsia chinensis) is derived from the nuts produced from this hardy, perennial plant which thrives in harsh desert climates of places such as Southern Arizona, California & Northern Mexico. This oil, made up of 50% wax ester (an oil vital for healthy skin) which is similar to sebum, the waxy-like oil our skin produces to hydrate and create a protective barrier. Because of this, Joboba oil is lighter and much less likely to clog pores. It also is chock-full of Vitamin E and other antioxidants, so it aids in reducing UV sun damage and blocking free radicals which play a large part in the aging process. This amazing oil also helps with elasticity by stimulating the production of collagen (which gives our skin its ‘bounce-back’ from facial expressions), and contains sterols which are the compounds that help to strengthen our skin’s actual cell structure. Add that it helps soften skin texture, reduces dark spots, and is a wonderful carrier oil, you can understand why Jojoba Oil is our go-to oil for healthy, glowing skin!
