Want hydration? Rose essential oil should be your go-to — it helps your skin to retain water, Chwalek says. This makes it a great essential oil to add to any DIY lotions, especially if you’re dealing with dry or chapped skin. Even better: When applied to the face, rose oil can improve skin texture and fine lines and wrinkles, she says. It’s one of the best oils for youthful skin.
