What I Love About This Facial Serum Recipe 

I loved the way it made my skin glow, and the frankincense aroma always made me feel more centered and peaceful.

What’s in This Hydrating Facial Serum Recipe

Almond Oil

Almond oil makes an excellent base for a hydrating facial serum. It’s light and easily absorbed by the skin, plus it has some great benefits: it’s full of vitamins A and E, which help to protect skin cells from damage. It can also help to lock in moisture and prevent dryness. 

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense Essential Oil can help to promote youthful, healthy skin. It’s perfect for use in a facial serum, as it helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and blemishes.

Serum Bottle

Once you’ve mixed up your perfect concoction, you need a place to store it. This pretty little bottle is the perfect size for holding your homemade facial serum, and the glass ensures that your sensitive ingredients remain fresh and potent. Plus, the dropper top makes it easy to apply.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly.
