As I continue on my path towards enlightenment, I've come to accept that more is not often better in the case of personal care products. Unfortunately, the industry has been inundated with more. More preservatives. More synthetic chemicals. More expensive. And more harmful than good. In my quest for an anti-aging serum that was made with real ingredients and showed real results, I formulated one of my most popular and exciting DIY concoctions to date! Free from toxins, free from preservatives, and only two simple ingredients: 100% Pure and Organic Jojoba Oil and Young Living's 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. This recipe is for people with oily, normal, or dry skin; people with a history of hyper pigmentation, rosacea, acne, and any other troublesome skin condition. Every woman I love now enthusiastically uses this blend in the place of their oil serum/moisturizer!
Age-Fighting Facial Serum
2 oz amber glass dropper bottle
1.5 oz 100% Pure and Organic Jojoba Oil (one of the least pore-clogging of the carrier oils and GREAT for skin!)
20 drops each: Patchouli, Lavender, Gentle Baby blend, Frankincense, and Ylang Ylang essential oils
Shake and apply 8-10 drops to the face and neck in the place of your night cream or daily moisturizer
Not sure that combination is great for your specific needs? Here is a graphic I created highlighting my favorite skin-loving oils and their many talents. Create your personalized blend and enjoy gorgeous skin!!
As always, be careful to select 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils to be sure you are breathing, lathering, and consuming only the safest and purest of oils. Understanding the different Grades of Oils is paramount when learning to live an essential oil-infused lifestyle.
