Make your own Face Serum

Amber Glass Bottle

Why buy over-the-counter skin products full of chemicals and synthetic fillers.  I love to make my own beautiful cleansers and moisturisers with simple and natural ingredients! Not only are they 100% natural, but also safer and more effective than anything you can buy from the store.

What you need to make your own simple face serum

You will need a carrier oil and essential oils.

Carrier oils are from the fatty part of plants, nuts and seeds.

Essential oils are distilled from the petals, leaves, bark, stem, and roots of plants. They are volatile, very aromatic, and very potent.

Essential oils must be diluted in a carrier oil. They are very concentrated, and can irritate the skin if not diluted properly.

Essential oils should make up 2-5% of the final blend, with the remaining 95-98% being comprised of carrier oils.

It also helps soothe chapped, dry skin.
