I've been using this DIY cream for a couple of months and it is fabulous. I wear it in the daytime as my overall face, neck and back-of-hands cream. At night, I apply a little of this face cream on those same areas, then dab on a little bit of the much richer "eye cream" all over and then cover everything with a teensy bit of the multi-purpose Beauty Balm (recipe to come).
THREE products (!) and by using them in different ways and times -- and that's all I need. Amazing, right?!?
I love that this recipe, like the others I've shared, can totally be customized. Add more or less of the carrier oils. Add more or less or even different essential oils. I played with the recipe until I came up with this for my 58 year-old skin. And I've gotten lots of compliments lately on how fresh and beautiful my complexion is. A girl loves that.
See the first post in this series for general tips, please.
Frankincense & Myrrh Face cream
Melt these in a double boiler. Remove from heat and add:
Apply small amount morning and evening to clean dry skin, avoiding eye area.
If desired, portion into two jars and store one in the refrigerator for longer keeping.
