Always choose your herbs and oil to benefit your type of skin. Herbs and oils for oily, dry and normal skin can help make your skin healthier. Like most lists, the herbs and oils used for different types of skin are not perfect and can be different for each Witch you meet. You can experiment by trial and error using the following list as a guide. Always remember not to add too much oil or herbs to anything you are going to put on your skin. It is very common for an allergic reaction to occur or find you skin doesn't like one or another herb or oil.

Try a test patch before you use a new recipe and remember to write down exactly what you used. If you do have a reaction, this way you can track down what caused it. Once you react to something, avoid it for a while. Only if you think it was due to the quantity of herb or oil, should you repeat using it. Be very cautions when you use any herb or oil.
