Facial Serum Recipe

Facial oils and serums are used to moisturise, smooth and soften skin and as they contain purely oils are concentrated products. A little will go a long way! Facial serums are the simplest kind of facial treatment to make and really nourishing and rejuvenating for the skin. You can use just one or a blend of carrier oils.

You will need

  • A 20ml pipette bottle (or similar)
  • Your choice of carrier oils (jojoba and rosehip oil are good choices)
  • Your choice of essential oils
  • Use a maximum of 2 drops of essential oil per 5ml carrier oil, always check the safety info and patch test first!

Face serums

Jojoba Oil

Balancing, softening, soothing. Balances sebum production. Great for oily skin, acne or dry skin. It is anti-inflammatory, and may be used to treat eczema and psoriasis. Light and well absorbed.

Rosehip Oil

Regenerating, rejuvenating and healing. A light, non greasy oil that is quickly absorbed. Rosehip seed oil contains tretinoin (a form of vitamin A) which helps to repair damaged skin, acne, and reduce wrinkles and scars. One of the best oils for mature skin, it is a good source of essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and 6) which assist with skin regeneration. Rich in Linolenic acid which helps with UV damage, fine lines and wrinkles and Vitamin C and Beta carotene both of which are antioxidants. A truly wonderful oil for facial serums and effective in small amounts (as little as 10% of your product).

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant which may protect the skin from pollution. It is naturally present in healthy skin, however, the amount of vitamin E decreases with time and after sun damage. When there is vitamin E in the skin it keeps it healthy and fights the signs of ageing. As an ingredient, it may improve the moisture balance and soften the skin.
