Wrinkles getting you down? They say that age is an attitude, not a number, but it’s sure got attitude all over my face! Fortunately I’ve been listening to Master Aromatherapist Leiann King and learning about essential oils that support the body in rejuvenating skin and slowing the signs of aging.
In Episode 5 of her podcast Real Life, Leiann gives us four recipes for our skin depending on if we have youthful skin versus maturing or mature skin. I’m no spring chicken so I’m going to give her middle-of-the-road recipe a try and scale up if I need to:
2 drops Patchouli
10 drops Palmarosa
8 drops Clary Sage
7 drops Fennel
20 drops Rose
5 drops Carrot Seed
Mix essential oils (you can purchase them here) with 2 oz of a carrier oil (my preference in this case is jojoba) in a container of your choice and shake well, at least 100 times to ensure distribution. Shake again a few times before each use which for me will be part of my morning and evening cleansing/moisturizing routine. Since a little goes a long way, this recipe should last at least 30 days.
Let me know if you try it and how it works for you!
