I have been wanting to use these little bottles from Amazon for a while! Finally, I get to do it!
Today, we are making another great gift for the women in your life: an anti-aging serum containing some of the best essential oils for skin health.
Here is the recipe:
2 oz of fractionated coconut oil
8 drops of lavender essential oil
8 drops of geranium essential oil
6 drops of cedarwood essential oil
4 drops of Roman chamomile essential oil
Mix the ingredients in a glass measuring cup and pour in your bottles of choice.
Helichrysum and copaiba essential oils would be great additions as they are wonderful for the skin, but since I don’t have them, I went without. Rosemary was also suggested in a recipe I found. This goes to show you, don’t fret it if you are missing an oil or two and be creative with your concoction. Today, I learned that cedarwood was used for cleaning the leper in Bible times. It has cleansing and antioxidant properties. Of course, essential oils as we know them didn’t exist then, but even the Egyptians extracted the oils from cedarwood to embalm pharaohs.
The recipe is enough fill six 1/3 oz bottles. You will love the smell as you pour your liquid into your bottles! Warning: you will want to cover your face with it!
