If you have thought that organic facial serums are difficult to make, this article will teach you how to make these serums without being an expert in cosmetology.
We are featuring two different serums which are using essential oils and base oils such as Argan oil that can be bought in every good drug store or online here at organiclifenow.com or any other online store.
DIY Skin Care: Relaxing and Romantic Face Serum with Rose and Argan Oil
1 drop of lavender tea tree essential oil or 1 drop lavender and 1 drop tea tree oil
5 drops of Rose Absolute Essential Oil from Aura Cacia (this is simply the best)
1 teaspoon organic argan oil
1. Dispense argan oil into palm of hand
2. Add rose and lavender tea tree oil
3. Mix with tip of index finger and dot onto face and gently wipe over skin surface using upward sweeping motions.
DIY Skin Care: Anti-Aging Face Serum
For this serum you would need THREE different oils:
Rosehip Seed Oil: This is the base for the ant-aging serum. Contains Vitamins C and A, high in essential fatty acids; will be easily absorbed by the skin; has a rejuvenating effect and evens out skin tones.
Frankincense Essential Oil: Supposed to have a tightening effect on the skin. Frankincense oil is slightly viscous, has a yellow to green color and the aroma is somewhat deeply balsamic like fresh resin. Sweet-lemony or green apple-like notes add complexity to the overall aroma profile of good quality frankincense oil. Thin, turpentine or solvent-like, weak, short-lived aromas are indicative of poor quality or adulterated frankincense oil. Blends Well With: Sandalwood, pine, geranium, lavender, neroli, bergamot, orange, basil, cinnamon, camphor, vetiver, jasmine, myrrh, rose
Lavender Essential Oil: The most popular oil of all oils that are used in aromatherapy and for skin care in general. It is fairly inexpensive and has a calming effect on the skin. Ingredients and Directions for the Anti-Aging Facial Serum

2 drops organic rose essential oil (optional)
