I was blessed with the naturally oily skin that many of my relatives have. It was a tremendous pain in the teenage years, but I say “blessed” because everyone in the family with that skin type has aged incredibly well.
In fact, it has only been recently after five kids and muchas stress that I have ever experienced dry skin or the beginnings of wrinkles. Many of my friends are turning to botox (which kind of blows my mind because they look great without it) but not being one to spend money to inject “the bacterial toxin botulin” into my face *shudder* I wanted to find a natural way to ward off wrinkles.
This herbal face oil is amazing for skin. It is somewhat expensive to make (though I’m guessing it is still cheaper than “the bacterial toxin botulin”) but it smells incredible and works even more.
Also, only a tiny drop is needed each day so my tiny bottle should last approximately 6-8 months and it is the only face moisturizer I need.
Herbal Face Oil Ingredients
The special blend of oils in this recipe is especially good for skin, including:
- Argan Oil (I used this one)
- Rose Essential Oil
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Frankincense Essential Oil
- Myrrh Essential oil
Another great thing about this recipe is that it takes seconds to make because you are just mixing oils with other oils and no water or emulsification is needed.
I keep this by my sink and use a drop after oil cleansing each night or after washing my face with honey in the morning. It smells incredible and I love smelling the oils as I drift off to sleep or as I work in the morning.
If you’re looking for a natural anti-aging and skin smoothing serum or face oil, give this a try!
