Which Oils Are Best for My Skin and Natural Hair?

The key to healthy, beautiful and soft skin and hair is all (or mostly) in your natural essential oils. Whether you have kinky, coily, curly or straight hair, dry or sensitive skin, these beauty secrets are for you!



Are you looking to fill your shelves up with some of the best essential oils? Though essential oils can get fairly pricey, we absolutely can not resist adding our favorite oils to, well, every single one of our products. Having a variety of essential oils on your shelf gives you the sense of, besides feeling a little bit witchy, a nurturing natural healer. Yes, we just went there! Here’s a list of our 5 favorite essential oils for skin and natural hair. We’ve also included their healing powers and how to use them. Here goes! 


  1. Coconut Oil

If you don’t already have coconut oil as an essential oil in your kitchen, please order an organic glass jar of this superfood pronto. For now, we’re only going to get into coconut oil’s topical benefits, otherwise we could be here for hours! Coconut oil is one of your heavier oils and should be handled with care. Many use coconut oil to hydrate the scalp, promote natural hair growth and to combat frizz. However, applying too much to your curls or scalp can be hard to wash out and can lead to further dryness by blocking the pores. 


How to use Coconut oil on your natural hair: Just add a mere smear to your hands and massage the oil into your scalp when experiencing dandruff. Or, on the ends of your natural hair and lightly over the surface of your curls to ‘weigh down’ frizz. You should test in small doses how this ingredient works with your hair type, because it’s certainly not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ oil.


Coconut oil has a lot of those great fatty-acids which help repair damaged or dry skin. There’s a generous amount of capric acid, myristic acid, palmitic acid, linoleic acid, oleic acid, and even more. Plus antioxidants like vitamin E, vitamin K, and iron. 


Coconut Oil for skin: It is said to improve the skin’s elasticity and hydrate dry skin. You can use the oil as a base for a skin care carrier oil, or simply smear a very thin amount to your skin. Just remember, she’s a thick oil and can easily stain some of your favorite dresses and tops. You’ll notice this ingredient in all of Koil’s by Nature’s Nourishing Hair and Body Butters! You can choose your favorite sweet scent or opt for a fragrance-free butter, oh yeah the fun begins! 



  1. Rosehip

Rosehip oil was discovered by Andean Indians of Chile. Guess what they used it for! As a natural hair conditioner. Skin and hair care products love to use Rosehip oil for the high quality vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids present in every drop. 


What Rosehip can do for your natural hair: Rosehip oil can prevent flaking and can eliminate oxidants which have been linked to natural hair loss. Most notably, Rosehip oil can be used as a natural hair moisturizer without weighing down your hair, or making it appear greasy. You can massage rosehip oil into your scalp, let it sit for 30 minutes and then wash and rinse for best results. 


What can Rosehip Oil do for your skin? The antioxidants present in Rosehip oil will hydrate skin, repair damage, and treat signs of aging. It can be used to even out skin tones, and can be used directly on the face, since it’s a lightweight oil. 

  1. Sweet Almond Oil

If you’re already into a healthy diet then we know you’re eating loads of almonds in your sweet and savory dishes. It’s just that tasty and that healthy for the body all around. It’s no wonder the oil pressed from this nut can be used topically and work wonders directly on the skin and natural hair. 


Sweet Almond Oil for Your Natural Hair: Almond oil is great for natural hair that feels dull or lackluster. The vitamin E in almond oil is the agent responsible for potentially healing alopecia, or a dry scalp. You can use a thin layer of almond oil to seal in moisture for an added kick. 


Sweet Almond Oil for Skin: Almond oil is generally safe for all skin types, which is a huge plus. This oil can clean pores while hydrating the skin. Imagine all that protein directly absorbed by your skin, delicious. All you have to do is add a few drops of this oil to your palm, rub your hands together to slightly heat up the oil and gently dab on skin and face. Sometimes the simple route is the best route! 

  1. Shea Oil

Isn’t shea oil one of those ingredients you’re just seeing everywhere? If shea oil isn’t already a main ingredient in your skin and natural hair care routine, we think it should be! Shea oil, is actually shea nut oil. What we love most about shea butter is that you can eat it or smear it. It’s just one of those magical ingredients that your body loves all around. 

Shea Oil for your Natural Hair: The best way to utilize shea oil, we think, is for its moisturizing power. You can actually style your curls with this oil directly from your scalp and roots. It will also work at moisturizing your scalp. So if you’re looking for volume and a naturally hydrating oil, this one’s for you. You’ll also notice shea oil in an abundance of Koil by Nature’s products, like the SheaLoe Leave in conditioner anyone? Simply because your natural hair deserves the best stuff out there! 


Shea Oil for your Skin: Shea nut oil can be used to treat acne, eczema, cracked heels, moisturize lips, soothes inflammation, can lighten stretch marks, and it can even be used as a shaving cream. You see why we love it? 


  1. Lavender 

What’s a list of essential oils without your lavender oil right? Besides for being a terribly soothing oil, which can seriously relax even the most tense person in the room, it has loads of benefits for your skin and natural hair. It’s not so hard to imagine, right? Something relaxing for the mind, having positive effects on the skin and hair too? 


Lavender Oil for your Natural Hair: No matter what your natural hair type may be, this one will do you some good. You can simply massage the oil into the scalp to heal dry scalp or dandruff or, strengthen hair through its deep conditioning properties. And, it’s antibacterial properties are believed to remove dead cells and stimulate new cell growth, to allow healthy hydrated hair strands to grow in. You can add 3 drops of lavender oil to one tablespoon of coconut oil, massage into the scalp and then shampoo after 10 minutes. You may have to shampoo twice to remove the coconut oil from your roots. 


Lavender Oil for your skin: Pure lavender oil will not only sooth skin, but is non comedogenic for pores. This means it has the power to fight bacteria that causes acne, soothe eczema and dry skin. This oil does a magical job at balancing out the skin’s natural moisture. Plus, it will detoxify the skin, which is why so many people add this oil to their steaming baths (among several other reasons we can think of!) 


Our final thoughts on Nature’s Best

Some of our other favorite oils to rejuvenate skin and natural hair include Ylang-Ylang essential oil, Peppermint essential oil, Lemongrass essential oil, Tea tree essential oil, castor oil, and the list goes on! If you have the budget, you may need an extra room for all of our favorite oils! 


What’s your favorite oil for your skin and natural hair? And how do you use it? We love sharing our best beauty secrets with our community!
