Sample Recipe: How to Make Nourishing Facial Oil
Note from Author: This light facial oil is very easy to make. It is ideal for normal to dry skins, and a lovely treat for tired skin in winter. It is surprisingly quick to absorb into the skin and really doesn't feel greasy, as you might expect. It is best applied at bedtime. Alternatively, it also works well as a light massage oil to relax the face. Vitamin E oil, which promotes the healing and fading of scars, is usually available in dilution with another oil, such as sweet almond oil.
4 tsp rice bran oil
2 tsp vitamin E oil in dilution sweet almond oil
1 1/2 tsp argan oil
2 1/2 tsp rosehip oil
2 drops geranium essential oil
Makes 3 1/2 tbsp of facial oil
Glass bottle with dropper
Measure all the ingredients into a glass jar.
Stir to mix the oils and then pour into a sterilized, airtight glass bottle with dropper. Label with the date and ingredients used.
HOW TO APPLY
Using your fingertips, apply a small amount to the face with light, upward movements.
Note: Store in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. The facial oil will keep for 6 months to a year.
