Time catches up with us all at one point or another. It's the prize we get for living full and fruitful lives. Remember, laugh lines mean you've had the privilege of much laughter and joy.
Sometimes time makes an appearance in the form of an ache or a pain and at others with a gray hair or a reflection that you may not at first recognize.
Luckily, nature has provided us with some amazing tools to counteract the signs of aging.
In this post, I'm sharing with you an easy anti-aging serum you can make at home.
This recipe is SIMPLE! You can't mess it up.
The two key ingredients are powerful in an of themselves and combined, form an unstoppable force to counteract the signs of aging the natural way.
I'll start with the ingredients for this easy anti-aging serum you can make at home!
Here's What you'll need:
2 oz Tamanu Oil
10 drops Frankincense Essential Oil (diluted in Jojoba is fine, just up the drops to 15)
5 drops Lavender Essential Oil
A few notes about the key ingredients-
Frankincense Essential Oil has been heralded for thousands of years for it's anti-aging properties. The Ancient Egyptians used Frankincense in their beauty preparations. They even used it as a preservative in mummification. Frankincense is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, encourages cellular regeneration, has been said to slow the production of tumors, is immune enhancing, elevates the mood and reduces the signs of wrinkles, dark spots and scars.
TAMANU + FRANKINCENSE = POWER!
here's what you need to do:
- Measure out your Tamanu Oil
- Add your essential oils
- Swirl the liquid to mix
- Use a funnel to pour your mixture into your bottle of choice
* Makes about an ounce at a time
There you have it, an easy anti-aging serum you can make at home!
A little bit goes a long way! Seriously!!!!!
All you need is a pea sized amount. Rub the serum into your skin. It will absorb quickly without leaving a greasy sheen.
As always, avoid your eyes and mouth. Tamanu oil has a bitter taste, so you'll want to keep it from around your lips. I've definitely made that mistake before (yuck!)
Use in the morning and before bed after washing your face or applying a toner. You can put moisturizer or a sunblock over it.
So...have you tried it? What do you think???
