DIY Essential Oil Glow Face Serum
Face Serum THREE WAYS!
I’ve been using a version of this essential oil face serum for about 6 months now and absolutely love what it does for my skin! Depending on where I am at in my cycle and what sort of conditions I’m dealing with for my skin I can easily customize my night and morning routine to incorporate oils to combat my skin concerns.
Normally I just place a dime sized amount of jojoba oil right in the palm of my hand and add a drop of each essential oil that I would like to use, but if you’re making this for a gift, you can simply mix all the ingredients together in one of your empty essential oil bottles as a great way to repurpose those little beauties!
You can grab dropper tops off Amazon to place on top and have a wonderful gift or easy face serum for your own personal use! I don’t recommend using coconut oil for facial serums as it can potentially clog pores. If you’d like to see a list of all the items I’ve purchased for my essential oil DIY gifts, you can find my Amazon shopping list here!
*Note; I only use Young Living oils and do not recommend purchasing cheap or synthetic oils; actually, I highly suggest you don’t as these could cause adverse affects! I only stand behind Young Living and their 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. If you would like to know more, please feel free to email me or read this blog post.

Adaptable Essential Oil Face Serum
I think the best thing about this essential oil face serum recipe is how versatile it is! Many of the oils listed above have properties that can help support multiple different skin types. Finding your favorite blend of essential oils for your own personal, natural facial serum may take a little bit of time! So don’t feel bad about trying out a few different blends before committing!
This is why I like to just add a small amount of Jojoba oils right in the palm of my hand, add my chosen essential oils, rub together, and smooth over my face. I’ve found depending on the weather, my cycle, stress levels, etc, I may need to address different issues each day. This has allowed me to sample many different serums without overly committing to a bottle!
I will say though that one of my favorite blends is simply frankincense and geranium! I love how soft and supple geranium makes my skin feel; almost like rose petals! And the glory look that Frankincense adds is fantastic too!
I hope you found this easy essential oil face serum recipe helpful! If you did I would love it you pinned it or shared it on social media to help spread the love around! Because I know we all could use a little bit of help with our skin issues off and on 😅
Cheers to keeping that glow even when you’re not knocked up 😉
