Rosacea is a skin condition that requires a specific form of treatment. When treated naturally with homemade serums, the choice of ingredients is key. You should choose ingredients with anti-inflammatory and soothing properties (calendula oil) or vasoprotective products to help treat blood circulation problems that are related to rosacea (Italian helichrysum essential oil). The healing elements found in cistus essential oil or the anti-inflammatory and toning properties found in geranium oil are also wise choices. Therefore these are the types of ingredients that you will find in these three formulas!

Nevertheless you should remember to use essential oils with caution and respect the advised diluted doses and make sure you do an allergy test beforehand.  You don’t want to make your skin even more sensitive by not being careful!
