My Favorite Facial Oil

I have made my own facial oils for years using essential oils, infused herbal oils, vegetable oils and coconut oil. This is by far my favorite because it is so easy to make. You might have to adjust the amount of coconut oil to your liking.

I prefer to use essential oils good for aging and oily skin so I mostly use frankincense, lavender, palo santo, jasmine, and bergamot. Frankincense and lavender have cytophylactic properties. Cytophylactic properties means that the oils stimulate the generation of new cells, which will aid in preserving the health of the skin. 

Play around and use the oils that you like the best or are best suited for your skin type. For more ideas, check out my Natural Skin Care section.

Before you leave:


I recommend that you always perform a skin patch test when you try a new oil.


Check out my safety page to make sure you are aware of any contrindications before you use essential oils. Some oils are not suitable when suffering from certain conditions. AlsoRead this Before You Start Using Essential oils. Some oils should not be applied prior to sun exposure so make sure you check this list before spending time in the sun.
