Daytime Face Oil

I've started experimenting with essential oils and aromatherapy recipes. This one is for a daytime face oil for normal skin (whatever that is)! I mixed 2 tablespoons of almond oil with:

15 drops rose
5 drops chamomile roman
5 drops lavender
5 drops lemon

That's it! I love the simplicity, and the scent. I've used it for the last couple of days now and so far, so good. You only need a tiny bit in the palm of your hand, and then once you've applied it to dab off any excess with some tissue. This is from the book 'The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy'.

  1. This is gorgeous - especially with the rose oil in it - but I found after a while that I wanted to go back to a moisturising cream rather than oil. However, nothing is wasted and I'm now using this in the bath instead! :-)

  2. Oh, great! I didn't know that making cream is so easy!:-)
