After searching for a great DIY face Serum, I finally decided on the following ingredients for my first DIY face Serum Recipe that were used by many bloggers and oil lovers, yet don’t break the bank. Surfing the web, I found the best carrier oil to use is Jojoba Oil which is great for healing and moisturizing all skin types. It can carry ingredients deep into the skin and is absorbed quickly. Jojoba Oil also has anti-inflammatory properties and is sold at a great price point on sites such as Amazon for $13.27. I also included the carrier oil, Argan oil which is great for hair, face, and skin. I chose to use a few drops of Lavender, one of the most well known essential oils. Lavender not only helps regenerate skin cells and lightens the appearance of age spots and scars, but is also used to treat various skin disorders such as wrinkles, acne, psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions and burns. Frankincense is the 2nd oil used in this serum and also promotes regeneration of healthy cells and keeps the existing cells and tissues healthy along with powerful astringent capabilities to help tone and tighten skin. When purchasing my essential oils, I found that the best quality and pure oils are found in the Young Living Essential oils, where the company produces a product that is genuine, free of synthetic chemicals, and unmatched purity.
