Hi my lovlies! welcome to my world of beauty here on my blog. Today is all about one of my favourite DIY serum mixes, which is so easy to make and gives great results no matter what your skin type.
Just a quick note to say I am not a professional oil blender and thus don’t work in the precise millilitres and ounces like the professionals do. Here and in all my mixes to come I will be working in tablespoons and drops just to make things easier (I am rubbish with measurements!) and quicker.
If you have watched my You Tube video on this post already then you will know I love this serum. If you haven’t visited my channel yet, you can find this video linked here, so please check it out. I am obsessed with making my own face serums, masks and toners and will be bring you lots more videos on my channel, so make sure you subscribe to keep up to date.
Using oil blends is so rewarding, not only is it way more affordable to make your own blends it is also fun and they last ages – up to 12 -18 months. I enjoy looking into the different oils and their benefits to choose which ones would best suit me and then mixing them up.
I bought all my oils from a website called Naissance. They have so much helpful information on their site, I love reading all about the different oils there. Service is great and delivery is quick. Definitely recommend you check them out.
There are two types of oils – Carrier oils and Essential oils and I have outlined these briefly below.
Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils before applying / ‘carrying’ them directly on the skin and are a must. They usually derive from nuts, seeds or kernels and don’t usually have any distinctive aroma.
Used in ancient skin care essential oils are said to promote a clear looking complexion, soften lines and wrinkles and restore healthier hair. Essential oils have more distinctive aromas relating to the plant or source from which they are derived.
For this super easy awesome DIY Facial Serum you will need:
3 tablespoons of Jojoba Oil
3 tablespoons of Strawberry Seed Oil
5 drops Frankincense
5 drops of Lavender
I like to mix the 2 carrier oils together first and then add the essential oils in and work in a glass or bowl first and then transfer the mix into my glass bottle. I am seriously so clumsy, I’m surprised I managed to pour the mix into my bottle in the video!
I use a glass bottle which comes with a pipette just to make things more authentic and pretty, especially if you want to give this serum as a gift to family and friends. Bottle linked here. I also mentioned using a plastic pipette if you do want to me more precise with measurements and that is linked here.
So guys, give this DIY serum a go and let me know how you find it. I do suggest using it for a month at least before seeing results. I use my serum 3 times a week after cleansing and toning. If you have particularly dry skin, you may want to add a moisturiser on top after a few minutes.
I have another post on my site about how and why I have switched to using natural skin care serums, masks and mists. So please check that out here. If you have any requests for other DIY skin care you’d like me to create, please leave a comment below and let me know. Do you like making your own serums and masks? If so, share some mixes below, I’d love to know.
That’s all from me guys, I hope you liked this post and my video linked here. Please leave a thumbs up, share and subscribe to my channel for more DIY beauty videos and I will see you again soon. Be positive, be happy, be beautiful – Husnara Beauty xx
