Here’s a great little DIY recipe that is not only beautifully scented and all natural, but really great for winter skin. I use this cream/serum type mixture all over my face as well as an eye makeup remover….it’s fabulous!
Winter Anti-Aging Rose Facial Cream:
- 1/2 oz + Rosewater or Rose Hydrosol
- 1 oz. witchhazel
- 3/4 oz. glycerin
- 3 TBL orange blossom honey
- 3 TBL Rosehip seed oil (and/or argan or wheatgerm oil)
- 1/4 oz. Vit. E
- 3-10 drops of anti-aging essential oils (I use rose, neroli, jasmine, ylang ylang, frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh, patchouli, and geranium)
Combine everything in a glass bowl and gently mix w/ whisk until thouroughly combined. Store in airtight glass jar at room temp.. (around 67 degrees). This will last you through the winter in most cases. You can use only one of the essential oils listed, or a combination of these, or any mixture thereof. I tweak this recipe everytime I use it and sometimes use more or less of these ingredients, so whatever consistency you like feel free to ammend this however you choose. Happy blending! 🙂
