Anti-Aging Night Facial Serum
Inspired by nature!
Anti-Aging Night Facial Serum (Rejuvenating Radiant Facial Serum)
While there are many commercial anti-aging products available, most of these formulas are expensive and contain potentially harmful chemicals which actually damage your skin in the long-term. Instead of pouring money into these pre-made “beauty products” why not create your own using all natural anti-aging oils?
The serum is 100% natural and can easily be made 100% organic too if you choose organic carrier and essential oils. This wonderful serum is great for everyone not just for mature skin.
You will need:
A 50ml pipette bottle (or similar) or glass dark container as the one i have in the picture because i am gone use very sensitive oils on light and heat like rosehipseed oil and frankincense eo.
The most important carrier oil in my night serum is rosehipseed oil and as essential my star ingredient is frankincense oil.
Ingredients and Proportions:
2tbsp rosehip seed oil, pomegranate oil or other anti aging oil
2tbsp jojoba oil (switch with coconut oil if your skin is dry)

7 drops frankincense EO, 7 drops patchouli EO, 7 drops lavender EO
Mix all ingredients with a small mixer (i have one for soluble coffee from Ikea)
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).
Jojoba Oil Balancing, softening, soothing. Balances sebum production so great for oily skin, acne or dry skin. Anti-inflammatory, may be used to treat eczema and psoriasis. Light and well absorbed.
Pomegranate Seed oil contains very high concentrations of antioxidants which help to prevent free radical damage and slow the aging process. Punicic and ellagic acids contained in this essential oil help to nourish skin, enhance elasticity, and promote cell regeneration. Pomegranate Seed oil also protects and heals dry, irritated, burned, or damaged skin such as that affected by eczema or psoriasis.
Frankincense – Famous for its skin preserving and regenerating qualities. A cytophylatic oil which means it aids the process of skin cell regeneration. Tonifying and rejuvenating, its one of the most important oils for improving skin tone and treating ageing skin as well as reducing scar tissue.
Before applying your night serum clean your face with a piece of cotton bud and witch hazel. Why witch hazel? Because of the ability of witch hazel to tighten skin and reduce inflammation makes this an ideal natural remedy for treating discoloration and puffiness under and around eyes and is one of the most popular uses for witch hazel. Just make sure not to get any of this natural astringent on the eyes themselves as it will result in significant pain and lingering discomfort from dryness.
If you chose any other carrier dont forget to use a maximum of 2 drops of essential oil per 5ml carrier oil always check the safety info and patch test first!
You can use just one or a blend of carrier oils. Similarly you can use just one or a blend of essential oils. Keep it simple and use just a few ingredients to begin with or mix and blend to your hearts content.
Massage a few drops into your skin, it will quickly absorb leaving you with beautiful, healthy complexion.
