Make your own decadent eye cream

My most sincere apologies I have been such a slack blogger of late. I won’t give you my list of excuses – because that’s all they really are, excuses.

But I promise I will be blogging more frequently.

Starting with this (peace offering) eye cream formulation that is heavenly. This eye cream will work just as well as all your fancy store brought ones just without the chemicals & hefty price tag.

I make it in a double batch & use it as a face cream too – just because I can.

It is light, silky & ultra hydrating with Rose hip & jojoba oil & our wrinkle busting, super restorative carrot seed oil. The organic green tea is chock full of antioxidants to start reversing the ageing process & get to work on those wrinkles.

Start using this & watch your wrinkles melt away……….You’re Welcome!!

Natural Wrinkle busting Eye Cream a’la Mama Going Natural

  • 1/8 c organic green tea
  • 12gm Rosehip oil
  • 12gm Jojoba oil
  • 12 drops carrot seed oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon vitamin E
  • 1/2 teaspoon Emulsifying wax
  • scent with your choice of essential oils or leave it plain as it is going around your eyes!

Place your organic tea in a clean, sterile glass bowl or jar & place in a gently simmering pan of water. Measure out the Rosehip & jojoba oil & wax, combine all three items in another sterile glass bowl or jar & place in the simmering pan of water to melt.

When the wax has melted, remove both jars from the simmering water & pour the liquid into your melted oil & wax mix & blend well with a stick blender, whisk or at worst a fork.

Be sure to blend well for a minimum of three minutes to combine your cream, once your cream is well combined add the Vitamin E & carrot seed oil & any essential oils you may want to add – blend well to combine & then let cool.

I preserve mine with .5ml of Leucidal so it keeps for forever, but an un-preserved batch will keep in the fridge for many months & you get the added soothing effect of cool lotion -great for treating puffy eyes.

Enjoy

    Could this be used as a total face cream for wrinkles/lines? I need something for both that isn’t chemical laden since I’m breastfeeding!!

      Yes 🙂 I have been using it as a face cream 🙂
      I love it, it leaves my skin silky & smooth. I have been using it at night & then our BB cream during the day as I am expecting another little one & don’t want to use any chemicals on my skin during this time.
