Sage Essential Oil for Mature Skin
Each and every plant has its own, distinct characteristics. Lavender is known for tranquility, Jasmine for sensuality, and Mandarin for optimism, but when it comes to wisdom, there is none better than Sage. As we, too, become older and wiser, this high-frequency plant medicine can be used to support our wellbeing in a multitude of ways, especially when it comes to skincare.
*** Always dilute essential oils before applying them to the skin! Use your intuition about what is right for you and your body.
Wisdom and age are values to be admired. Years of smiles bring laugh lines. Beautiful sights beheld can bring crows feet. Years of experiencing the cycles of the seasons bring other weathered features. These certainly are characteristics of a life well-lived! But if you are looking to bring vitality and vigor back into your complexion, Organic Sage Essential Oil is a friend worth welcoming. From fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, stretch marks, and cellulite, you’ll find everything gets better with sage.
A favorite among aromatherapists for its anti-aging benefits, Organic Sage Essential Oil can’t eliminate your hard-earned wrinkles, but it may help reduce them by bringing much-needed hydration, antioxidants, and other nutrients to the skin, all of which are essential for wrinkle repair and prevention.
Organic Sage Essential Oil is also an abundant carrier of antiseptic and antibacterial compounds, so whether you experience symptoms of hormonal acne (Hello menstruation and menopause!) or you are looking to treat fresh facial abrasions, this oil just might be the perfect remedy.
And how about stretch marks? Or cellulite? Organic Sage Essential Oil is known to help with those, too! Often used to promote circulation, many use this plant medicine to improve circulation and bring life to the derma, thus tempering skin irregularities and encouraging positive regrowth. (Again, hydration is another key component here as well.)

Signs of aging are nothing to be ashamed of, in fact, they should be celebrated! They’re like merit badges saying, “Good job, you’ve made it this far!” But good skin health is something that anyone of any age can benefit from, and good health all around is a true sign of sage wisdom.
