Lisa broke it all down for us by explaining two types of oils—carrier and essential—and their anti-aging properties. In this edition, we go over everything you need to know about essential oils and which ones are the best for an elixir of youth.

What are essential oils?
Essential oils are distilled, usually by steam or water, from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant—they contain the true essence of the plant from which they are derived. Contrary to the use of the word “oil,” essential oils are not really oily feeling at all. They are also highly concentrated so a little goes a long way. Wherever possible, go for organic only!
