DIY Anti Wrinkle Eye Stick!
This recipe calls for Shea butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Carrot Seed Essential Oil, Vitamin E oil, Frankincense essential oil and good ole Lavender!
Meadowfoam Seed Oil is an excellent oil for aging skin. It absorbs quickly but leaves a light barrier that holds moisture in the skin. It's softening and moisturizing power is amazing. It provides natural protection from the sun and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It is rich in Vitamins C and E.
Shea Butter helps rebuild collagen and is ultra moisturizing. Coconut Oil heals and calms as well as moisturizes with out clogging pores. Vitamin E oil is excellent for all skin types and helps prolong the shelf life of your product. Frankincense oil is excellent in regenerating healthy skin cells. It balances the skin and helps other oils to penetrate deeper. Lavender essential oil calms and balances the skin as well as adding a lovely scent to your eye cream.
Carrot Seed essential oil is the real STAR of this eye cream. It contains a large amount of antioxidants, vitamin C and Vitamin K. These components help to protect against stress, UV rays and pollution. Carotenoids have been found to enhance the body’s immune response to UV rays, which can decrease skin damage from UV exposure. Carrot Seed oil is healing and rejuvenates skin cells. In fact, carrot seed oil helps to heal eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis because of its ability to stimulate cell growth and repair damaged skin. Carrot Seed oil also helps to balance the skin-it will not clog pores, but will moisturize dry skin.
Anti Aging Eye Roll On
1.5 tsp. Beeswax (buy it HERE)
1/2 tsp. Shea Butter (buy it HERE)
1/2 tsp. Vitamin E oil (buy it HERE)
Melt Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter and Vitamin E oil in a glass Pyrex bowl placed in a pot of water. Turn stove only to medium heat. Do not let the water boil. Once all ingredients are melted remove from heat and add essential oils. Pour into a lip balm tube. This recipe makes 1 ounce. You could probably fill up about 5-6 lip balm tubes. I put the excess in a .85 (25ml) ounce glass jar.
