First I cannot be more thankful that I discovered essential oils! Now when I am talking about essential oils I am only referring to Young Living Essential Oils! I want to make sure Im using the purest I can get and free from synthetics. Now that I have totally ditched the beauty counter skin care or the “info commercial” skin care, I am actually seeing a difference in my skin! I must tell you I fall into the over 40 group so I was getting alittle nervous with my appearance
Two important things to remember. Only use top essential oils
- Only use top essential oils
- Do Not skip on your carrier oils! There quality is just as important as your essential oils! And yes even with them you can get poor quality

This serum is my daily favorite. I have a couple that I make that I use for different things. but this is my daily favorite!
There is only four different essential oils in this one. Elemi, Carrot Seed, Geranium and Lemon.
Elami has been used in European skin care products for ever. It is also called THE POOR MANS FRANKINCENSE! I don’t really care I just know I like it. The Egyptians used Elami for embalming, and the Europeans have used it for skin care reducing fine lines, wrinkles and improving skin tone and scars for hundreds of years.
Carrot Seed I love this one! Not only can it be taken internally for health benefits It is a very popular for its high SPF ! It’s SPF rating is listed between 30 and 40! Carrot seed is know for its rejuvenating effect on the skin and not only to soften but to assist in cellular growth. It is rich in beta-carotens, and vitamins A,B,C,D,and E and fatty acids!!
Lemon O.k. Im just a Lemon nut in general1 I love how it smells and I love what it does to my face. Lemon essential oil helps to brighten the complexion. Historically Lemon has been widely used in skin care to cleanse the skin,reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to combat acne.:Lemon is detoxifying so it helps with blemishes , but it also helps rejuvenate tired looking skin because of its ability to remove dead skin cells! How great is this! Note: lemon is considered photosensitive like all citrus so maybe only use this at night in sunnier climates.
Geranium Wow how I love this one. Historically it has been used for centuries for regenerating and healing skin conditions. Geranium helps increase blood circulation and therefor helps skin elasticity! When added to a carrier oil, Geranium can help dry skin and help prevent or heal sagging because it works on retaining the moisture in you skin ( um us over 40!) Geranium is used in so many of our Young Living Skin and Body products!
4 to 6 drops each of essential oil
glass dropper bottle
High grade carrier oil I use Tamanu and RoseHip because of all of there healing qualities for mature skin.This will last you at least 2 months and my dropper bottle is only 1 oz!
I would love for you to send me your comments or even some pictures!
