DIY Essential Oils Face Serum

A few months ago I decided I was done with using store-bought face serums. I had no idea how many unnecessary and potentially harmful ingredients were in my old one. Surprisingly, most of the ones you can buy at the store are incredibly toxic. Ever since I received my Young Living premium starter kit last year, I've been replacing things one by one. I've made my own all-purpose spray, added a few drops of lavender to my mascara (I'm still on the hunt for a clean version) and have been diffusing oils like crazy. So making my own face serum seemed like a fun and healthy venture. Best of all, all three oils can be found in the premium starter kit. Just keep in mind you'll need a glass dropper bottle.

DIY Essential Oils Face Serum

2 tablespoons Sweet almond oil
1 tablespoon Rosehip seed oil
5 drops Frankincense essential oil
10 drops Lavender essential oil
2 drops Copaiba essential oil
1 drop Lemon essential oil (optional)

I’ve been putting this on every night and my skin feels lovely because of it. Also, if you choose to add lemon essential oil, keep in mind that it can increase photosensitivity - so apply the serum at night or when you won't be going in the sun for awhile.
