Nourishing Night time Face Serum

I used to buy a night cream but I have started making a nourishing night oil instead as it is really easy and you can customise it to suit your skin. My skin has improved and making my own is economical. I apply 4 drops to a clean face at night time before bed. Feel free to customise.

Some simple ingredients with lots of benefits

Jojoba oil- a golden liquid wax that mimics the skin’s natural oils, penetrating deep into the skin’s layers.

Rosehip Oil- absorbed quickly into the skin, it is pressed from seeds. Perfect for mature and sunburnt skin. Beneficial for healing scars

Lavender Essential oil; great for the skin. Used to treat disorders such as acne, wrinkles,psoriasis and other inflammatory conditions.

Frankincense Essential oil; promotes the regeneration of healthy cells, a powerful anti-aging oil.

Cedarwood essential Oil; has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, reduces skin irritations, promoting relaxation and balance.

When mixing your serum add the essential oils to the bottle first, lightly swirl to combine before adding the carrier oil. I use a 30ml glass bottle with a dropper in it(like these or try glass bottles direct in Australia) with 18 drops of essential oil topped with carrier oil. This is a 2% concentration which is commonly used for skin benefits.
