This is day 17 of my 30 day blogging challenge. My goal this month is to post one recipe every day. (I’ve fallen a bit behind, but I’m playing catch up today!) These recipes feature natural colorants and additives and are scented using natural essential oil blends.
Today’s recipe is a very simple roll-on eye serum. I make this for personal use, so only make it one roll-on at a time.
Rose Hip Seed Oil – Rose hip seed is oil packs a powerful punch with anti-oxidants, including linoleic acid. It is known to hydrate skin and sooth dryness and irritation. It has been used since ancient times as a wrinkle reducer and scar healing serum. It absorbs easily.
Vitamin E – Vitamin e is a powerful anti-oxidant.
Frankincense, Carrot Seed and Geranium essential oils are all wonderful essential oils to use on delicate facial skin.
Eye Serum Recipe (1 roll-on)
Vitamin E – 5 drops
Frankincense Essential Oil – 5 drops
Carrot Seed Essential Oil – 5 drops
Geranium Essential Oil – 5 drops
Rose Hip Seed Oil – Fill bottle
Eye Serum Roll-On Process
Step 1 – Add 5 drops each of vitamin e, frankincense, carrot seed and geranium essential oils into a glass 7 mil roll-on bottle.
Step 2 – Fill with rose hip seed oil.
Step 3 – Insert opening of bottle and snap in roller ball. Shake.
Step 4 – Use nightly as an under-eye serum. This would also be great for facial scares and other blemishes.
Happy Eye-Serum Making!
Hi, do you have to use the carrot and geranium oil? My EO cabinet is mostly very basic oils, and I’m trying not to buy any others until I use what I already have. ☺ Could I use lemon or orange? Thanks!
The facial moisturizer I make for myself contains Rose Hip Oil, Frankincense, and Geranium. The only thing I do differently is add Kalahari Watermelon Seed Oil. Rose Hip Oil has a pretty short shelf life. But the Kalahari Oil has a much longer shelf life. So I mix 2/3 Kalahari with 1/3 Rose Hip. I’ve never tried the carrot essential oil. But, if it goes on my face, then it’s going to have Frankincense & Geranium in it. I can personally attest to the dramatic changes it’s made. It has made dominant brown spots on my face fade or disappear completely. Great recipe Amanda. Thanks for sharing it!
I love rosehip seed oil. It’s the secret ingredient in my body butter. While I make no claims, many people tell me it relieves their psoriasis/eczema better than prescription ointments. I get mine from mountain rose herbs.
Do you use a specific source for most of your essential oils? Or do you get them from a variety of places? I have started researching all of the different EOs you have listed in your recipes (and also your book that I purchased which i LOVE!) and some of them seem hard to find.
Hi Tammy! Just for you! https://lovinsoap.com/2015/07/essential-oils-for-soapmaking-my-sources/
Hopefully others will chime in with their sources so you can have some new places to search.
Oh I am SO glad you are posting your recipes again! I have missed them and have been checking everyday. 🙂 I cannot wait to start making these!
