Hi ladies,

I heard so many good things from this forum about tea tree and ylang ylang oils and I am planning to get those. I looked at ebay site. It has so many to choose from. Some of them are very cheap (doesn’t have any brand, they cost only couple of cents from UK). Can you ladies help me? Or Do I have to buy any specific brand?
And If I buy these outside Canada, are there any issue to get the oils in ? since many of them doesn’t have any brand.

Thanks Smile

Lindsay -

Essential oils like those are excellent for your skin, but there are a couple of things to check before buying from on online seller, as there are unfortunately quite a few disreputable vendors out there. A few things I would look for are that they are shipped in an amber or cobalt blue glass bottle, as pure essential oils can be very strong and eat at plastic. Also, I would ask if the essential oils are at 100% concentration, as some people will cut them with alcohol or dilute them in a carrier oil. There are a few sites I posted on this thread http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=5466 that have good information about oils and some of the things to look for and beware of when buying. HTH!

thank you ladies for the reply. Very Happy

Do you recommend organic essential oils or just the regular essential oils?

Thanks

hi lindsay,
You may want to try this site:
http://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/soap/EssentialOils.asp
They sell lots of products for making your own serums and oil concoctions. They sell organic and convential and they are not very expensive. I would feel better purchasing items from a site that specializes in these items, rather than from eBay. I LOVE eBay, but anything that is bottled by someone else makes me...wonder.
have fun, joani

I'm using Decleor Ylang Ylang oil and i really like it, there're also many good reviews about it.
But i heard you can do it yourself and it is way cheaper than a brand name one.. give it a try Very Happy

Hi Lindsay

Why don't you use both the tee tree and the ylang ylang. Use the tee tree in a face wash and the ylang ylang oil from Decleor?

My friend had major breakouts and now has control, she started by using the Australian Body Care facial wash and their Ketsugo Gel, when that was under control she stopped using the Ketsugo Gel and turned to the Decleor oil and Hydra-Matt Regulating Fluid whith really good results.

I wish you all the best.
Happy.

You should be able to find a bottle of 100% pure tea tree oil in the first aid section of most pharmacies or supermarkets...they're sold in amber glass bottles for about $5.99 for 8 ounces. You can also find tea tree oil and Ylang Ylang at local health food stores.

I got the Decleor the other day at Sephora with a gift certificate. All I can say is - WOW - all the praise is well deserved. It's fantastic, how did I ever live without it? Laughing

I'd actually purchased a DDF pumice acne scrub/wash (yes, what was I thinking, I'm not 18 anymore) hoping it would help get rid of some bumps and oily skin problems of late. Well, I've never reacted to a product really, but, I came out of the shower looking like I'd used a cheese grater on my face. I quickly put a few dabs of the Ylang-Ylang onto my palms, pressed together and patted onto my face. My skin was instantly rosy versus inflamed and felt soothed and soft.

Definately check this out! I'm in love

Thank you very much for all the replies. They are very helpful. I heard so many good things about Decleor Ylang Ylang oil. Actually, I am thinking to make homemade Ylang Ylang oil from Caretake's recipe. Very Happy

Hi Lindsay,

Wish you all the best with the ylang ylang recipe, if you buy the tee tree, there are many different types and the most effective is wait for it its a long latin name [i]Melaleuca alternifolia[/i], Rolling Eyes it has all the anti's, anti bacteria, anti virual, anti inflamitary, etc.

Take care.

Happy
