Buff and Butter | Different Ways to Use Essential Oils*


Essential oils are something I've never really took much interested in if I'm totally honest but after reading some reviews recently on all of their many uses, I've started to do more research and am now convinced that I've been missing out. When I was offered the opportunity to try out some of the lovely Buff and Butter essential oils I decided that it was time to put some of that research into practice!

As I said above, I've never used essential oils before so I was slightly overwhelmed with all the different ways you could could use them and after about an hour of googling them all, I decided to go with a more "Beauty" theme a.k.a how you can use the oils to help with any beauty problem!

Suffer from acne, dermatitis or any other common skin diseases? Then try mixing a teaspoon of coconut oil with five drops of geranium oil, then rub the mixture onto the infected area twice a day until you see results. You can also add two drops of geranium oil to your daily face or body wash!

Ylang Ylang

Coconut oil is one of the biggest things in beauty at the moment and it can also be used with essential oils to help make amazing hair masks. Try massaging a ylang ylang and coconut mixture when showering to increase the appearance of healthy, shiny hair. It can also be helpful for preventing tangles and dandruff, while also working as a hair loss remedy. Some research even shows this combination can kill head lice! Seems like a handy little oil to have around.


It is best to mix myrrh with carrier oils such as jojoba, almond, or grape seed oil before applying it to the skin. It can also be mixed with an unscented lotion and used directly on the skin. Due to its antioxidant properties, it is great for antiaging, skin rejuvenation, or healing of wounds.


Cedarwood essential oil helps reduce dry or flaky scalp. It stimulates the scalp and increases circulation. To take advantage of this essential oil benefit, mix two drops of cedarwood essential oil with coconut oil to create a mixture with anti-fungal and moisturising properties. Add the mixture to your scalp, and rub it in for five minutes. For the best results, let it sit on your scalp for 30 minutes or so — then wash it out. Done!
One of the most common uses for tea tree oil today is in skin care products, as it’s considered one of the most effective home remedies for acne. One study found tea tree oil to be just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, but without the associated negative side effects that many people experience including red, dried and peeling skin. You can make a homemade gentle tea tree oil acne face wash by mixing five drops of pure tea tree essential oil with two teaspoons of raw honey. Simply rub on your face, leave on for one minute, then rinse off.

Tea tree oil has also been proven as very beneficial for the health of your hair and scalp. Like coconut oil for hair, tea tree oil has the ability to soothe dry flaking skin, remove dandruff and even can be used for the treatment of lice. To make homemade tea tree oil shampoo, mix several drops of tea tree essential oil with aloe vera gel, coconut milk  and other essential oils like lavender oil.
