I’ve read varying recipes from different blogs, but I wanted this to be quick and simple, so I just looked through my closet and used what I had on hand already. The recipe is extremely versatile and can be customized to your skin or what you already have in your house as well.
Simple Facial Oil
-secondary oil (optional)
-essential oil (use one or a combination)
Fill container most of the way full with the carrier oil. Fill the rest of the way with the secondary oil. Add 5-10 drops of essential oil (you should be able to smell it, but not have it be overpowering). Shake before each use.
Some common oils and their uses are:
-grapeseed oil for normal, oily, acne prone, or sensitive skin
-sweet almond oil for all skin types, but takes a little longer to absorb
-jojoba oil for all skin types
-olive oil for dry skin, but really takes longer to absorb
-avocado oil for dry or aging skin
These oils are all excellent for any skin type. They’re extra nourishing, but can also be extra-pricey. Thankfully it’s just a small ratio.
-vitamin E oil
-carrot seed oil (this is essential oil and can be mixed with your carrier 10 drops is suggested)
-rosehip seed oil
-lavender for acne prone, dry, oily, chapped, or normal skin and scars
-rose for combination, acne prone, aging, dry, oily, or sensitive skin and large pores
-patchouli for oily, aging, or chapped skin and eczema
-peppermint for oily skin and blackheads or puffiness (With this oil only 2-3 drops is suggested)
-chamomile , Roman for acne prone or sensitive and puffiness or eczema
-lemongrass for blackheads and large pores (Only use at night maybe photosensitive. 4 drops is suggested)
Have fun experimenting!
