Let’s talk about two of the best essential oils for anti-aging, Yarrow|Pom and Frankincense. I have used essential oils in my green beauty routine for 20 years. I started with Rose and Roman Chamomile back then, and since I made the switch to dōTERRA essential oils a few years ago, I started to incorporate even more essential oils into my skincare routine. I am blown away by how amazing my skin looks and feels. I’ll be turning 50 later this year, and I can tell you using essential oils in my daily skincare routine is one of my secrets to glowing, youthful-looking skin.
If you are looking for a natural approach to anti-aging, one of the most important things that you can do for your skin is to switch to a plant-based and organic skincare line. There is no reason to continue to use toxic beauty products any longer. There are many different companies today that make incredible, safe, and non-toxic skincare products. Personally, I love to shop online at The Detox Market Canada. I recently shared my favourite green beauty products that I love and use. I also love and use dōTERRA essential oils for anti-aging. Today I am sharing two of my favourite essential oils for healthy, youthful, and glowing skin.
Why do you want to ditch toxic beauty products? Well, it’s been well documented in various publications, both online and in print, as well as this incredible documentary, Toxic Beauty, that many cosmetic and beauty products on the market are toxic and have a negative impact on your health.
My two favourite essential oils for anti-aging are the Yarrow|Pom active botanical duo and Frankincense. Yarrow|Pom is a combination of Yarrow essential oil and cold-pressed Pomegranate seed oil. It’s full of antioxidants and supports your skin, giving it a healthy glow. This blend is incredible for anti-aging, fine lines, and to help you get that glow.
“This synergistic and first-of-its-kind blend naturally up-regulates the body’s protective transcription factors while activating skin-protecting proteins (inhibiting the enzymes that breakdown elasticity and collagen production).” – dōTERRA
To translate the above quote for you..this essential oil blend is incredible for anti-aging! The main chemical components of Yarrow|Pom are punicic acid (an omega 5), antioxidants (vitamins C & E), B-caryophyllene (a type of phytocannabinoid), beta-pinene (balances & brings into state of homeostasis), and chamazulene (antioxidant power & cell health). It’s vegan friendly and also supports your cellular, immune, and nervous system function and rejuvenation when taken internally. Yes, you read that correctly. You can also take Yarrow|Pom internally.
Tell me how many beauty products do you know of that you can also take internally?
This is important to make note of because anything that you put on your skin is absorbed into your body. Women, on average, put 168 synthetic chemicals on their bodies every single day. This has a huge impact on how we look, our energy levels, our digestion, as well as how we age. All of the toxic chemicals in the various products that you use accumulate in the body and skin over time.
Did you know that personal care products are a $50 billion dollar industry in the United States, however, the government does not require any mandatory testing for these products before they hit the store shelves? The other major problem is that companies can also use the term fragrance in a product’s ingredient list and not have to disclose what chemicals are in that fragrance. Only 10% of the chemicals that are used in beauty products have been evaluated for safety.
Toxic overload in the body has been linked to many health issues including poor sleep, exhaustion, and hormonal related issues. Putting chemicals on your skin may be worse than eating them because they can enter the bloodstream without any filtering.
Now, let’s talk a bit about Frankincense, also known as the king of oils because of its many health benefits. Frankincense is known for beautifying and rejuvenating the skin. It also promotes cellular health and immunity and can also be taken internally.
Yes, you read that correctly. Frankincense essential oil is another essential oil that can be used topically for anti-aging and can also be taken internally. Please note, that I am talking ONLY about dōTERRA essential oils, when I talk about the internal use of essential oils. Most ‘essential oil’ brands that you’ll find at stores are NOT pure or safe.
So, when you are looking for the best essential oils for anti-aging, I recommend dōTERRA essential oils. There are many other oils that I incorporate into my green beauty routine, but I wanted to highlight two of my favourites today. I have always believed that glowing skin comes from within, which is why I think that both Yarrow|Pom, and Frankincense essential oils are two of the best essential oils for anti-aging. Not only are they incredible when applied topically, but they also have amazing health benefits when taken internally.
It’s very simple to add both Yarrow|Pom and Frankincense into your daily skincare routine.
I like to add both Yarrow|Pom and Frankincense to my serum or to my moisturizer. Add a drop or two of each and apply morning and night. I also incorporate many other essential oils and natural beauty products into my routine as well. Feel free to download my FREE Glowing Skin Ebook on glowing skin. I wrote the ebook before Yarrow|Pom was released as a new product, but you’ll find lots of information in there about how to use essential oils for glowing skin.

Great article. I have always been a fan of Frankincense oil but only knew about a few uses. This article gives a very details information about it. Will definitely try it out. Great work!
Frankincense is a daily use oil for me! I use it for so many things. In particular, I use it in my DIY facial serum. I also have it added to many of my own custom ‘purefume’ blends as well and often have a drop under my tongue for overall cellular support. Only use dōTERRA Frankincense internally and always follow the recommended usage guidelines.
