As we age, our skin thins and loses elasticity.  That leads to wrinkles and fine lines around our eyes, forehead, and mouth

But there’s help. 

This natural anti-aging serum fights back.  Here are some of the things that this essential oil roller bottle helps with:

  • rejuvenates skin by increasing new cell growth and turnover
  • moisturizes and plumps skin to reduce appearance of wrinkles
  • boosts collagen
  • improves elasticity and skin firmness
  • reduces inflammation
  • protects skin from environmental damage like sunlight, smoking, air pollution
  • makes skin look more radiant

It won’t get rid of wrinkles completely, but this anti-aging essential oil roller bottle recipe helps to temporarily make wrinkles less prominent and it smoothes and tightens skin.

What’s in it?  Why does it work so well?

  1. frankincense– Frankincense essential oil improves skin tone, promotes new cell growth, and improves elasticity.
  2. lavender– Lavender essential oil is an antioxidant that fights free radicals contributing to skin damage.  It’s great for circulation; lavender increases blood flow to skin allowing oxygen and nutrients to reach skin for renewal and healing.  And it helps replace old skin cells with new ones which leads to smoother skin texture and a more radiant complexion.
  3. rose– Rose essential oil is a powerhouse of anti-aging goodness!  It’s both an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory that can help lessen redness, puffiness, and stressed-looking skin.  Rose essential oil also improves blood flow which makes skin look smoother and gives your complexion a youthful, pinkish glow.  And it helps keep skin moisturized and improves skin elasticity to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  4. sandalwood– Sandalwood essential oil helps retain moisture which makes skin look plumper and more taught.  It has astringent properties to help get rid of dull-looking skin and increase cell turnover so that there’s less dead-skin cell buildup.  And sandalwood also promotes the development of fresh skin cells.
  5. helichrysum– Helichrysum essential oil is one of the most potent and trustworthy essential oils when it comes to fighting the signs of aging.  It’s soothing and healing, reduces inflammation, reduces age spots, scars and wrinkles by increasing cell turnover.
  6. rosehip seed oil– Rosehip seed oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids that are wonderful at fighting dryness and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  It helps increase cell turnover and new growth, revealing new, more youthful-looking skin.  It’s one of the richest plant sources of vitamin c that supports collagen production and is great for skin elasticity!
  7. vitamin e oil– Vitamin e oil is an antioxidant that helps fight the harmful effects of free radicals like wrinkles and brown age spots.  It protects and nourishes skin.  It also helps soften and moisturize skin which is great because well moisturized skin tends to look more youthful and less wrinkled.

Don’t worry if you don’t have one of these oils, there are substitution alternatives listed in the recipe below.

step 1:  add rosehip seed oil to a 10ml roller bottle

tip:  fill to about 1 inch below the top of the roller bottle so that you have room to add the vitamin e oil and essential oils in the next steps

Here’s the rosehip seed oil I use.  I love that it’s organic, cold pressed, and unrefined.

Don’t want to use rosehip seed oil?  Here are some good substitutes: jojoba, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, sunflower oil, and tamanu oil

 

step 2:  add 1/2 teaspoon vitamin e oil

Here’s the vitamin e oil I use.  I love that’s 100% natural and organic.  Plus, it’s absolutely loaded with vitamin e- 15,000 IU in only .5 oz of oil.

 

step 3:  add the following essential oils

  • 5 drops frankincense essential oil
  • 3 drops lavender essential oil
  • 3 drops rose essential oil
  • 2 drops sandalwood essential oil
  • 2 drops helichrysum essential oil

Don’t want to use one of these essential oils?  Here are some good substitutes:  myrrh, geranium,  patchouli, cypress, jasmine, rosemary, and ylang ylang

step 4 (optional):  apply label

  • Get your free printable label here.
  • Print out label (I print my labels on regular plain printer paper instead of fancy label paper.  It’s cheap, the label sticks really well to bottles, and the ink doesn’t smear.)
  • Cut out label.
  • Put label face down on a piece of packing tape that’s about 1/2 to 1 inch wider than the label.
  • Clean the roller bottle with a paper towel and a little rubbing alcohol.  This helps get any dirt and oil off the bottle so that the label and tape stick really well to the bottle.
  • Apply the label and packing tape to the bottle.

  6. This serum can also be applied to other areas of the face (forehead, laugh lines around mouth), neck and décolletage.
