How to Make a Natural Anti-Aging Eye Serum!

This anti-aging eye serum goes on smooth and absorbs into your skin fast. Using a roller bottle allows for a very gentle application to the delicate skin of our under eye. After washing your face apply the anti-aging serum under your eyes by rolling the roller ball gently for 2-3 passes.

Essential oils are most often used for aromatherapy, but many essential oils have skin care properties as well. As a working 40 year old mother of 3 (two still in diapers) I can use all the help I can get when it comes to anti-aging! 

Lavender:  Lavender is known best for its calming and de-stressing properties in aromatherapy that it would only make sense for it to be so beneficial in anti-aging.  Lavender has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antioxidant properties.  Lavender is great for helping reduce fine lines, sun spots, and improve elasticity in your skin.

Sandalwood:  Sandalwood is known for having anti-inflammatory properties.  This may help with the appearance of puffiness under the eye. 

Geranium: Geranium is often used for acne treatment because of its antibacterial and antiseptic properties.  It also has  a moisture balancing property which makes it a great addition to any face care regimen.

Cleary Sage:  Cleary Sage is best known as an antioxidant. As an antioxidant cleary sage can prevent and repair the harmful damage from free radicals that are believed to cause the signs of aging.

Rose:  Rose is an ingredient seen in so many products that have to do with anti-aging. This is largely due to the fact that Rose oil has so many properties.  It is anti-inflammatory, an antibacterial, and an antioxidant, making it a logical essential oil to add to any skincare product.

Tip 1:  After applying the serum to your under eye, use your ring fingers to gently blend. Your ring fingers apply very little pressure to your delicate under eye area.

Tip 2:  This is an under eye serum, the oils have a purpose other than scent (see above), we do not want to overdo the essential oils when using a product on the sensitive skin of your face.

Tip 3:  If you like this recipe, pair it with the Anti-Aging Natural Face Cream 

Uses

I use my anti-aging eye serum both in the morning and evening.  I am more generous with the amount I use in the evening because I have more absorption time.  I do not blend the oils in at night.  In the mornings I use the normal amount that will allow for immediate absorption which allows me to apply my makeup immediately.
