Hydrating Face Serum

Face serums are thought to have many benefits, from hydrating the skin to smoothing fine lines to lightening sun spots.

DIY face serums are typically made with a base (carrier oil) and essential oils. For this recipe, we’ll use sweet almond oil, which is full of vitamins and minerals that can help reduce the appearance of dark spots, fight wrinkles, and firm the skin and it’s lightweight so it absorbs easily. We’ll add frankincense, which is said to have regenerating properties and the ability to even out skin tone; and geranium oil, which not only smells beautiful, but can promote radiant skin. Ingredients 1/2 cup sweet almond oil 10 drops frankincense essential oil 10 drops geranium essential oil


Directions Mix ingredients in a small bowl (use a measuring cup to make pouring easier) and pour into a glass bottle. Use a few drops morning and night. Remember: less is more! You can cover your whole face and neck with just a few drops.
