How to Make a Custom Facial Oil

Ready to create the perfect blend for your skin?

Carriers oils are a beautiful choice when it comes to making your own facial oil that enhances the quality of your skin.

Each carrier oil has a different combination of health benefits and therapeutic properties. Depending on the benefit or characteristic being sought will determine the choice of carrier oil.

#1. Choosing the RIGHT Type of Oil for Your Skin

Being able to mix and match ingredients to your own skin care needs does NOT need to be a daunting or confusing task. There is an oil for everyone and the first thing you need to do is to find the oil that benefits your skin type.

We recommend starting with jojoba oil and then using the following guidelines to find the oil that will give you that glow.

Start with a ratio of 80 percent jojoba oil and then 20 percent of another oil specific and suitable for YOUR skin type:

 Skin Type Carrier Oil
Dry or Aging
  • Rosehip seed Oil
  • Sweet Almond Oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Argan Oil
Oily
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Tamanu Oil
  • Apricot Kernel Oil
Normal or Combination
  • Coconut oil
  • Sunflower Seed Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Argan Oil


#2. Customize it with Essential Oils

Essential oils boost the healing properties of your skin oil and have regenerating and toning properties. Not only are they easily absorbed into your skin, but they also improve the texture, feel, AND look of your skin!

Use a few drops of the following essentials oil to rev up the benefits of your DIY oils:
