Sample Recipe: How to Make Nourishing Facial Oil

Note from Author: This light facial oil is very easy to make. It is ideal for normal to dry skins, and a lovely treat for tired skin in winter. It is surprisingly quick to absorb into the skin and really doesn''t feel greasy, as you might expect. It is best applied at bedtime. Alternatively, it also works well as a light massage oil to relax the face. Vitamin E oil, which promotes the healing and fading of scars, is usually available in dilution with another oil, such as sweet almond oil.

INGREDIENTS

4 tsp rice bran oil

2 tsp vitamin E oil in dilution sweet almond oil

1 1/2 tsp argan oil

2 1/2 tsp rosehip oil

2 drops geranium essential oil

EQUIPMENT

Glass bottle with dropper

Step 1

Step 2

HOW TO APPLY
