The Essential Oil Facial


I started using doTERRA oils a few years ago when I was in esthetics school with amazing results. Lavender, Melaluca and Frankincense are my main staples and I also use a lot of Hawaiian Sandalwood , Roman Chamomile and Cedarwood. These oils have been proven effective in supporting variety of health issues as well as topical benefits to the skin such as: tightening, soothing, calming, and cellular turnover.

In my treatment room, I use a variety of these oils to enhance your facial. And with all the positive feedback I’ve been getting from clients, I decided to create an essential oil facial with steam.

Using steam to open pores, I then do a deep tissue facial massage with selected oils added into a deep exfoliating product to relieve congested skin and sinuses. Oils are added to the cleanser , exfoliator, and finishing moisturizers to create a healing facial that will have you glowing.

Micro Dermabrasion is a Great Way to Keep Skin Healthy

Getting regular micro dermabrasion treatments is a superior way to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. When you keep your skin professionally exfoliated, you give it a chance to breath. Every day our skin falls victim to free radicals, pollution and dust. When this debris collects on the skin, it settles into pores causing them to become clogged and stretched. Over time, this causes the pore to become larger and fine lines to become more visible.

Regular treatments in a series of at least three, three or four times a year, is a must for age management and overall skin health. For those who suffer from acne, regular micro derm treatments can manage breakouts, reduce inflammation and prevent scarring.

Parkside Esthetics offers lots of great package deals on micro dermabrasion. I have current specials on 3, 6, and 9 treatments. Call for special pricing over the holidays!

No Flu For You

Fall is the air, and so is the flu. As much as I hate to admit that, it’s true. And, if you have little ones running around, you know that you can never stay too clean.

Here is one of my favorite DIY hand sanitizer recipes for alchool free cleansing:

  • 1 cup pure aloe vera gel

  • 1-2 teaspoons of witch hazel

  • 8 drops of doTERRA On Guard Blend

There are multiple ways to keep your family healthy this year without using all those OTC medications that can make you and the kids feel wonky. Essential oils support your body on a cellular level because they are readily absorbed and can penetrate the cell membrane.

Fight the flu naturally with this DIY flu bomb roller ball:

  • 5 drops of Frankinsense

  • 5 drops of Oregano

  • 10 drops lemon

  • 10 drops melaluca

  • 10 drops doTERRA ON Guard

  • Top with fractionated coconut oil in 10ml roller ball

  • Apply several times daily to bottoms of feet or wrist

  • Safe for children

    Keep yourself well rested, well hydrated and surrounded with lots of essential oils this season. Don’t forget to add several drops of lemon or wild orange to the diffuser for the added health benefits of Vitamin C !


Practice Safe Sun

Sun damage is real. It can start out looking like a harmless freckle and become something sinister.

Protecting your skin from too much sun exposure is obviously the key to staying healthy. Sunburns and peeling cause deep damage to your skin on a cellular level and can permanently change the structure of your skin.

Take skin cancer out of the equation and there is still a big reason to stay safe in the sun. Here’s why, your looks! Do you want big splotchy brown patches on your cheeks and deep lines on your forehead?  No, but you want that tan don’t you?

Here is the Parkside approach to safe sun and vitamin D absorption, with the caveat that I am not a doctor, only an esthetician.

Early morning sun in the spring and summer , from 7 -10 am is a great way to get some natural Vitamin D and some color. The angle of the sun at that time of day does not point directly down on you like it does at noon. You can take advantage of that by getting sun without the burn risk.

Also, hydrate! Water is your skins best defense against dry patches and eczema. And finally, find a sunblock that you love one doe face, one for body. I recommend Aveeno for baby faces, and any hydrating sunblock that has low levels of alcohol.

So, this summer, wear protection and practice safe sun!

Micro Needling Gets Great Reviews

Collagen induction therapy, or micro needling, seems to be getting a lot of attention these days. Perhaps it’s because the results are real and there is virtually no down time. Or it could be because it is more affordable than laser treatments?

This treatment is effective because it triggers collagen growth. With a series of 3-5 treatments, a person can expect results to last for at least a year if not longer. Scars and even advanced pigmentation issues can be corrected as new skin growth continues.

Once the treatment is finished your face looks as if it has a mild sunburn and you can go back to your normal routine with just a few minor changes such as sun protection and follow up cleansing routines.
