The best natural skin care remedies for younger looking skin often include a mix of these essential oils with other natural oils such as coconut oil and jojoba oil. Remember, it’s important to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil before applying to the skin, and to use only the highest grade essential oils for topical use.
So how can these anti-ageing essential oils be used in your everyday routine? Here are a few of our favourite DIY recipes.
DIY anti-ageing face oil
A nourishing face oil applied at night can be extremely beneficial for ageing skin. You can make your own DIY face oil by combining 1 tablespoon of a natural carrier oil like jojoba oil or coconut oil with 2 drops of Frankincense or Geranium oil. Store your face oil in an amber drop bottle, and massage 4-5 drops gently into the face each night after cleansing.
DIY anti-ageing face mask
Essential oils can also be used to create an anti-aging face mask at home using other natural ingredients.
Simply combine 1 tablespoon raw honey with 3 tablespoons organic yoghurt and 3 drops of Frankincense oil. Cleanse your face and apply the mask to clean skin. Let the mask sit and work its magic for up to 15 minutes before washing off with a warm damp face cloth!
DIY anti-ageing eye cream
Eye creams are ideal for smoothing wrinkles and reducing dark circles and under-eye bags. You can create your own nourishing eye cream using essential oils and natural ingredients.
Remember, for an eye cream, you’ll want to use soothing oils to prevent any kind of irritation.
To make your own DIY anti-ageing eye cream, simply mix 2 tablespoons of shea butter with 1 teaspoon raw honey, then 2 drops each of Frankincense, Geranium, Lavender. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place, and apply under each eye before bed.
