Facial Rejuvenation with Essential Oils- Younger Brighter Skin Part 1

A facelift will immediately tighten saggy, baggy skin, eliminate jowels and restore youthful contours to your face.  Neurotoxins and dermal fillers will tighten and add volume, but total facial rejuvenation depends on repairing the tone and texture as well as rehydrating the skin.

Improving your skin tone can go along way to taking years off your face.  Aging skin can be sluggish, dull and gray with black circles under the eyes creating hollows.  Age spots and sun damage and tiny capillaries around the nose can also add years to your face.  Essential oils can be important weapons in the battle to polish the surface of your skin.  Products must be used consistently for results.   Here's how to make an anti-aging serum:

1 ounce of aloe vera gel
1/2 ounce distilled water
3 drops sweet fennel
4 drops frankincense
4 drops palmarosa
2 drops lemon
2 drops helichrysum

Blend oils with aloe vera and distilled water and funnel into a amber or blue pet or glass bottle with dropper top.   Tap onto face before bedtime after cleansing, toning and hydrating.

Eye Cream to reduce appearance of dark circles under and smoothe wrinkles around eyes

1 ounce organic or natural unscented light facial cream
50 drops rose hip oil
2 drops cypress 
6 drops geranium
2 drops lemon
5 drops sandalwood

Essential oils are already found in many treatment products you are currently using.  Some may work for your skin and other's may not.  At you have the opportunity to select the oils and the carrier (base oils that will work for you).  Or you can ask the professional aromatherapist to pick the products she thinks will work best for you based on a detailed description of your complexion.
