Which essential oils should you use?

If your skin is oily, you might not consider slathering more oil on to be a worthwhile solution. Oils are greasy, shiny and clog your pores, right? Not so fast. There are several essential oils that offer some serious benefits to skin - whether your issue is dryness, oil or wrinkles.

Here are some of the most powerful potions to consider.
