I often get asked how to mix carrier and essential oils to create a beautiful skin serum. I wanted to repost this awesome recipe which I feel can easily get lost in the mix. Feel free to modify this recipe with your favorite oils.

Here is a wonderful facial serum recipe courtesy of my favorite online herbal beauty source Mountain Rose Herbs. This rich healing oil is best for mature, dry, or damaged skin and includes both helichrysum and carrot seed essential oils which increase skin regeneration and heal hyperpigmentation. It also contains pomegranate seed oil which is a powerful antioxidant and another skin regenerator very helpful for healing skin ailments such as eczema and psoriasis as well as rosehips seed oil which is widely used in natural skin care to treat wrinkles and premature aging.
Facial serums with high quality potent ingredients like this recipe will truly nourish the skin at a deep cellular level.
What you will need:
Pour 1/2 oz (1 tablespoon) of rosehips seed oil, 1/4 oz (1/2 tablespoon) of jojoba oil, and 1/4 oz (1/2 tablespoon) of pomegranate seed oil in a 1 oz clean glass bottle using a funnel. Now add 5-10 drops vitamin E oil, 10 drops lavender essential oil, 3 drops helichrysum essential oil, and 2 drops carrot seed essential oil. Once closed roll the bottle or gently shake to evenly mix the ingredients.
You can use this DIY facial serum as a daily moisturizer to rejuvenate and heal your skin. Once you begin to use 100% pure natural carrier and essential oils for skin care, you will never turn to synthetic cosmetics that contain so many toxic chemicals and filler ingredients ever again. Nothing compares to what comes from nature!
