Dandelion oil is derived from the petals of the dandelion blossom. It is never heated. Dandelion blossoms contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidants, polyphenols, flavonoids, and minerals that support and protect skin cells, soothe skin irritations and nourish dry skin.
Dandelion oil is reminiscent of summertime, and it is great for aching muscles and stiff joints. It also has calming properties that can be combined with lavender or other essential oils to make a soothing stress-relief topical. It is typically used to heal cuts, scrapes, burns, sunburns, bug bites, and other minor skin irritations, including diaper rash. It also protects against UVB-related photoaging and senescence (aging at the cellular level).
To use: Apply to a cotton round, Q-Tip, or a clean cloth and gently wipe skin. The soothing effects will begin immediately.
~Add your favorite scent and massage into the skin to relieve tension and joint pain.
~Dandelion oil can be used to make a healing salve as well.
