DIY NIGHTTIME FACE SERUM

Beauty care has never been more fun and easier!

I’m a person who appreciates easy & simple beauty care routine. I just don’t like to spend hours every morning and evening shuffling with all sorts of creams and what not. Plus I don’t even have all that extra time. My kids barely let me pee in peace let alone to spend one hour styling my hair!

There’s a little hippie girl inside me that got out of her cave few years back when I learned to appreciate, and totally fell in love with, my bare beauty and all its simplicity.

I’m also a person who believes that our skin & hair really doesn’t need five different kinds of creams, three shampoos, countless hair styling products, and a luggage full of make up.

When you add all the hundreds of different kind of ingredients we don’t even know how to spell, our beauty care routine easily becomes a cocktail that does more harm than good to our wellbeing.

Whenever I manage to substitute a commercially made product with a self made one I feel like a winner! I really get enormous satisfaction for being able to create my own beauty products with only few ingredients that are 100% natural and safe. It just can’t get better than that!
It’s so empowering to be in charge of what I put on my skin and into my body. Less is more!
Healthy and radiant skin & hair really just needs few good quality natural products that supports their own wellbeing and balance.

This serum doesn’t only support your skin during the sleep but also promotes good night sleep and it just might knock you out after applying it. Here’s what you need for this face serum and how to make it.

And here’s a little bit about the benefits of the oils I chose for this face serum:

FRANKINCENSE

Frankincense essential oil is a resin oil and it’s topical use smooths the skin and maintains the radian appearance of healthy skin. It evens out skin tone and balances dry skin. Frankincense is a key ingredient in many face creams. On top of the great benefits this precious essential oil offers to the skin, it is also one of the best oils to assist relaxation.

LAVENDER

Lavender essential oil helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes, soothes sensitive skin, and supports healthy and youthful glow. Lavender is one of the most used essential oils and especially loved and appreciated for its calming and sleep supporting properties.

CEDARWOOD

Cedarwood essential oil offers cleansing and moisturizing properties and can help maintain the appearance of healthy and youthful skin. Cedarwood is also a resin oil like frankincense offering deeply grounding and relaxing benefits.


ROSEHIP SEED OIL:

Rosehip seed oil is a fatty carrier oil which is nourishes and smooths the skin. This is an excellent oil for more mature skin. It is considered as a precious anti-wrinkle oil to nourish and revitalize the skin. Rosehip seed oil is particularly valuable for mature, damaged, or problem skin.

MOISTURISING DIY BODY OIL

Lavender, frankinsence, and copaiba essential oils are all included in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit.

We’re almost half way through fall and winter is just around the corner! The seasonal changes can be hard on the skin; especially the winter season can be very challenging.

Cold air outside and dry and warm air inside can make the skin very dry and itchy. Summer, on the other hand, brings other challenges: sunshine feels so amazing on the skin and is important for the production of vitamin D, but it will also damage the skin, especially if it burns it. 

I thought I would share my favorite body oil recipe with you that works wonderfully year around. I’ve been using this for a bout a year now and would not change it for anything! It contains only few, 100% natural ingredients:

cold pressed sesame seed oil, frankincense, lavender, and copaiba essential oils. 

Sesame oil has been used for ages in skincare because of its many health promoting properties. I love to use this body oil in the evening before going to bed because it is very calming and soothing for the skin, muscles, and mind. Sesame oil gets absorbed very quickly into the skin so you don’t have to wait for a long time to get dressed after applying it. 

You’ll need:

– 200ml of organic virgin sesame oil
– 4 drops each: frankincense, lavender, and copaiba essential oils

– 200ml empty (glass) bottle preferably with a pump cork

Mix the ingredients together and apply on the skin after a shower. All the ingredients are very soothing and calming so this makes a perfect evening oil to support relaxation.
