My Easy DIY Facial Oil Blends
My recent favorite has been a blend of argan oil with frankincense and myrrh. It’s what I call the wisemen’s oil since it features 3 simple yet powerful and effective ingredients: argan oil aka liquid gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Argan oil contains antioxidants, vitamins a and e as well as oleic and linoleic fatty acids. This means that it can help blur fine lines and wrinkles, increase cell turnover and overall moisture, reduce inflammation and improve skins permeability. This last quality makes it ideal as an essential oil carrier. This is why I use it in my homemade facial lotion. I particularly love frankincense and myrrh for its anti-aging benefits. This trio has now become my favorite go-to blend for my night time facial oil. Night time is when I really like to bring in the big guns as the product will continue to deeply absorb throughout the night. I store this oil in an amber bottle and keep a bit of it in an amber eye roller for an eye serum/treatment that glides on effortlessly.
To make this, I simply add about 1 oz of cold pressed argan oil to my bottle and drop in 6-12 drops each of frankincense and myrrh. This varies depending on how strong you want your oil to be but it also depends on how high quality the essential oils you are sourcing are. Shake it up and you’re done.
