Face Toner:

2oz Witch Hazel (alcohol-free)

2oz Water

5 drops each:

Lavender

Purification

Frankincense

(Variation:  Use cucumber witch hazel and a spray bottle for a refreshing face spritz.  I suggest leaving out the Purification in a spray.)

 

Night Face "Cream":

1 oz. Sweet Almond Oil (Hydrates, brightens, reduces fine lines and wrinkles.  Use another oil if you’re allergic to tree nuts!)

3 tsp Vitamin E Oil (Nourishes – antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin)

3 tsp Castor Oil (Moisturizes and stimulates lash growth.  Reduces puffiness and wrinkles and scars.)

5-7 drops Frankincense

3 drops Lemon

3-5 drops Lavender

1 Evening Primrose Oil capsule (Hydrates the skin and increases circulation.  Also reduces inflammation and clears pores.)

  • Mix the ingredients together.  Puncture the Evening Primrose Oil capsule and squirt it in.  Store it in a dark glass bottle with a dropper.  Apply every night all over your face (especially eyelids!), neck and décolleté before going to bed.  It smells heavenly and nourishes the skin.
