The skin absorbs 60-80% of what’s applied to it. In an effort to be more picky about what I put on my skin, and after much research and experimentation, I started making my own anti-aging beauty potion.
This custom blend is a 100% Pure, therapeutic, food grade quality essential oil beauty blend with no fillers or synthetic chemicals. So much of what we buy to put on our faces are full of fake things! Harsh chemicals and synthetic fillers that don’t improve the quality of the product, but take up space in the jar. It seems such a waste of money and time to pay for something that isn’t doing any heavy lifting. When it comes to facial skin care, who doesn’t want all the lifting they can get? The blend that I came up with is 100% oil. Super concentrated and powerful, natural ingredients, so I only need to use very little at a time. Applied to the face once or twice a day keeps my skin hydrated, nourished, toned, and this blend fights wrinkles, balances skin hormones, balances oil production, and decreases inflammation! Sounds too good to be true…but while results are not instant, I’ve been using my own skin care blend for months and I’ve seen major improvements in the quality of my skin. This stuff even helps control acne! Though it’s not as effective (or harsh) as the acid you get from the dermatologist.
Because I am so proud of the blend, and because it’s so gentle on the skin and so healthy, I’ve listed the potion for sale on my Etsy. It comes in a 10 ml roll-on glass bottle, ready to use.
INGREDIENTS AND WHAT THEY DO:
Grape seed Oil – Grape seed oil is an antioxidant rich, lightweight oil used for controlling oily skin, healing acne, providing non-greasy moisture, and may even help prevent cancer. It is hypoallergenic and has anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine, anti-aging, anti-allergic, antimicrobial, and adaptogenic properties. Grape seed oil enhances collagen and elastin production which can reduce wrinkles and the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Lavender Oil – Lavender oil is perhaps the best known, and most versatile essential oil there is, and its uses and benefits are endless. Lavender oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antidepressant, antiseptic, antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties. It also has antispasmodic, analgesic, detoxifying, hypotensive, and sedative effects. Lavender oil has been shown to soften wrinkles, sooth nerves and relax muscles.
Clary Sage Oil – In addition to its antidepressant, antibacterial, anti-septic, and deodorant properties, Clary sage is also an astringent which tightens and firms the skin. Clary sage is known to reduces skin inflammation and heal rashes. It also balances and regulates the production of natural oils in the skin, reducing both oily and dry skin. Applied elsewhere on the body, Clary sage helps balance hormones, battles addiction, and inspires positive moods.
Rosemary Oil – Rosemary is a common ingredient in cosmetics and conditioners because it promotes cell regeneration and growth. Applied to the scalp it stimulates the follicles and promotes long, healthy hair. Applied to the skin Rosemary promotes new-cell-growth which improves skin appearance.
