This face serum recipe contains cold-pressed rosehip seed oil, which researchers say promotes collagen production, helps to even skin tone, fades brown spots, supports scar healing, and makes skin glow.
2 tbsp high-quality rosehip seed oil
6-12 drops (or a combination of) one of the following essential oils or essential oils:
Anti-Age blend (can be used instead of blending your own oils)
Soft Skin blend (can be used instead of blending your own oils)
Instructions To Make
Add rosehip seed oil and essential oil drops to a container – I prefer a measuring cup because the spout makes it easier to pour.
Stir the oils together and transfer your serum to a small, clean, airtight bottle. I use a 1 oz. glass bottle with treatment pump that I recycled, but you can find similar ones here and here.
Apply to your face and neck before bed. Because it is a dry oil that absorbs quickly, you can also apply it in the morning if desired.
Notes *Avoid these essential oils if pregnant or nursing. For a longer list of essential oils to avoid during pregnancy/breastfeeding click here, and for a list of oils that are considered safe for pregnancy/nursing click here. In general a 1% dilution (6 drops for this recipe) is recommended for face application. However, it may be appropriate to go up to 2% (12 drops) if certain objectives – like softening fine lines – are desired. Also, quick note: I added some rose and calendula to my bottle to make it pretty. Both are wonderful for skin but totally optional.
