New & Improved Anti Wrinkle Eye Sticks!

New and Improved Anti Wrinkle Eye stick

Many of you are familiar with my Anti Wrinkle Eye Stick recipe.  It was my most popular post in 2013 and might get that title for 2014 as well!  I ended up selling them in my Etsy shop and constantly sold out!  In my opinion-this is the best DIY eye treatment I have ever found or made.

I don’t use many of my own DIY’s anymore because I am testing out commercial products so I can share them with you if they are really great.  I do use this though.  I keep it by my bed and use it nightly.  I absolutely love it.  My skin responds well to it and I believe it keeps those pesky under eye wrinkles at bay.  I use it in between my brows (where my wrinkles are most prominent, thanks to my furrowed brow expression that I’ve had since a child and passed on to my youngest, ugh!)  I also swipe it across my laugh lines because luckily I laugh as often as I scowl!

That being said… I have had to take this lovely DIY out of my Etsy shop for the summer due to it’s balm like consistency.  It would melt in transit and I didn’t want to take a chance on sacrificing quality.   I decided it was time to change the consistency and also change the formula to reflect the new things I have learned this year.

This is a very easy DIY and there are no worries of bacteria or contamination because this recipe contains no water.  I added the incredibly effective rosehip seed oil as well as evening primrose oil.  Evening Primrose Oil is an excellent choice for an eye treatment because it is known to even discoloration in the skin including dark circles.  It is rich in omega fatty acids which helps slow down the aging process by nourishing the delicate skin that is so prone to “crows feet”.  Evening Primrose is known to give the skin a tightened appearance as well as rejuvenate the skin.

I omitted beeswax because we don’t need it to harden the liquid and it really is not needed for this eye treatment.  I also omitted coconut oil because I don’t feel like this oil is good enough for an eye treatment.  I started to feel like it was more of a “filler” ingredient.

Of course I kept carrot seed essential oil and lavender because they are just fabulous for the skin, especially the delicate eye tissue.  The great news is, my oil company of choice, Spark Naturals, now carries Carrot Seed Oil!  Their quality carrot seed oil in this recipe makes this eye stick so much more effective!  Carrot seed oil is probably my favorite anti aging essential oil!  You can read more about that HERE.

Now that the eye stick is more of a liquid consistency it works perfect in a roller bottle.  Over the last couple of months I have experimented with the roller bottle and the consistency of the eye stick and find the application is even smoother and gentler then the balm!  I don’t really get a good roll on the ball of the bottle but the product is thin enough that it comes out nicely and evenly.

DIY Eye Treatment

Anti Wrinkle Eye Stick

1 TBSP. Meadowfoam Seed Oil (find it HERE)

1 TBSP. Sweet Almond Oil (find it HERE)

1 TBSP. Rosehip Seed Oil (find it HERE)

1 tsp. Evening Primrose Oil (find it HERE)

1/2 tsp. Vitamin E oil (find it HERE)

6 drops Carrot Seed Essential Oil (find it HERE)

12 drops Lavender Essential Oil (find it HERE)


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Using a small funnel or a large dropper, add your mixture into roll on bottles.

Find roll on bottles with metal ball HERE.  I love the metal ball with this treatment because it glides so smoothly across delicate skin.

Homemade Eye Treatment

This recipe will make about 6-7 roll ons.   Since there are no worries about bacteria, these would be great to give to friends and family!  They are so nourishing and moisturizing for anyone.  My pores clog with everything but using this around the eyes, I have no issues so I would say this is safe for all skin types.  Very little is needed.  If you use too much, your skin will not absorb it.  Plus, it’s so pure and potent, you only need a tiny amount.

If you would like to skip this DIY but are interested in trying it, I have a limited amount available on my Etsy shop!  Find them HERE!

  1. Jenni,

    How many drops is 1/16 of a teaspoon? Maybe 1-2 drops?

  2. Elizabeth says:

    This sounds wonderful. Right now Mountain Roase is out of some of the ingredients.
    Is the Shea butter necessary? I love it and use it frequently, but was hoping to avoid heating the other oils. Also, what about using rosehip oil instead of the meadowfoam seed oil? I already have the rosehip, and the meadow seed is a little harder to come by. Please let me know what you think. Love everything you do. Have been into natural beauty products and DIY for years, but like the way you make it hip and stylish:)

    • Elizabeth-Rosehip is excellent for the skin-I say try it-Everyone’s skin responds differently so this might be a good idea for you! Shea butter is great for rebuilding collagen-it can be omitted though. It does solidify once it’s sat a while so that’s why this eye stick always has to be shaken before use.
      Thanks for the compliment! That’s my goal-to make DIY fun, easy and hip!!

  3. Thanks! I have meadowfoam seed oil at home and like it very much as a hand oil – two drops on wet hands massaged into the skin until dry leaves my hands really velvety. Since the spectrum of the oily acids of meadowfoam is somewhat unique I do not think you can compare it to rosehip seed oil, Elizabeth. But I’m also interested in the answer as I have red rosehip fruit oil at home and would add it to the blend. But I’m not sure if that’s a good idea because it absorbs so well.

  4. Is there any substitute for the Goji and Meadowfoam? I have all the ingredients, except those. Would pomegranite seed exctract work for the goji? How about jojoba for the meadowfoam? Thanks!

  5. Hi! I’m very new to all of this…this might be a silly question, but does the carrot seed oil work internally to help with age spots, or can you apply this eye stick to age spot areas?

  6. Hi! I made this recipe today. I had the sweet almond oil, shea butter, carrot seed oil, and Lavender essential oil on hand and i ordered the rest of the supplies from lotion crafter. This recipe really goes a long way. I am super excited to see the results! Thank you for the recipe.

  7. Hello Jenni,
    I’ve been looking online to find a conversion tool to convert the Vitamin E from tsp to drops… Would you agree that 1/2 tsp of Vitamin E is equivalent to 30 drops?
    Kind Regards,

  8. Can’t wait to try this.
    Is the doc adorable brand ok to use for all the ingredients?

    • Candy-I’ve been trying to find out about this brand for a long time because the products are so affordable. I have not found any bad reviews and have used them myself and enjoyed the results. Something just nags at me though-it’s just too good to be true. For now, go ahead and I’ll keep digging!

  9. Daniela Renner says:

    Jenni: mountain rose is apparently no longer offering Meadowfoam. Other than dr. Adorable, have you found any other reliable source. Do you still think dr. Adorable is ok to use? Thanks for any information. LOVE LOVE LOVE the eye stick.

    • Hi Daniela!!!!! I have not found anything against this brand. Honestly, I think it’s too cheap to be good. I am in search of a more reliable source though. Once I find it, I will update each post that contains this ingredient. I have even thought about using a totally different oil. For now though, I am using the Dr. Adorable and do like how my DIYs are turning out. I’ve found no difference in smell or texture between Dr. Adorable and Mountain Rose Herb. Hope you are doing well!!

      • Daniela says:

        Yes Jenni, I’m doing well and keeping you in my prayers as you and your girls travel thru this frustrating time of your lives. My daughter and her two young boys are going thru same thing.

        Thank you for responding regarding the meadowfoam. Like you, I am suspicious of Dr. Adorable. Even the name portrays a fraudulent feeling. Wish Mountain Rose would replenish their supply. LOVE THIS EYE STICK so much and use it all over face, wherever wrinkles decide to appear.

        Thanks again and take care of you and your sweet daughters.

        • Daniela-I’m sorry to hear about you your daughter-I know my parents are just reeling-it’s so hard on everyone! So many people have told me they are going through the same thing-scary how prevalent this is.
          Yes, I agree-the name is what puts me off. I’ll get to digging and see if I can’t find a better source or even a better oil that MRH does carry. I have thought about Sea Buckthorn-an anti aging powerhouse-it’s just expensive.

          • Daniela says:

            Thank you Jenni for your response. I have ordered Dr. adorable.

            Yes, these situations are hard on all family members and I agree it is way too prevalent in our society. Praying all the very best for your family.

  10. Hi Jennifer,
    As I cannot find glass roll on bottles is it a problem if i put the mixture in a glass bottle with a dropper??

  11. Hello
    I have 2 questions about this product recipe vs the old recipe.
    1 – Can you put in Frankincense essential oil into the new recipe? And if so how much would you recommend? I heard a lot of good things about it and I don’t know if it can be or should be added to it?
    2 – I was wondering if there is still anyway to keep it harden form than liquid and then keep it in the refrigerator from melting in the summer? If so would adding coconut oil to it be ok?
    I have been debating for a long while to male this and I really want to give it a try.
    Thank you for sharing! I really enjoy all your information! 🙂

    • Erica-hi! 1. Yes. It’s a wonderful oil for this product-I would add about 5-7 drops. It’s a very gentle oil and great for inflammation.
      2. Are you saying you prefer the balm consistency rather then liquid? In order to make it a balm you must add beeswax. THIS recipe is the solid recipe. It’s one of my top recipes so give it a try-I think you’ll love it solid or liquid!

      • I guess sense you mentioned beeswax could I just add beeswax to your new recipe to make it in the balm consistency. I like the balm but I like the oils you used in your newer recipe.
        Thank you for taking the time to get back to my questions. It all sound better in my head and typing it out I sound crazy.

  12. Plant therapy has the Meadowfoam oil in 2 sizes last I purchased. Plant

  13. I read once that rubbing itchy eyes due to allergies can break down collagen around the eyes and cause wrinkles. I am starting to see lots of fine lines and wrinkles under my eyes and I also have crow’s feet. Is this good for REVERSING or eliminating those wrinkles or only as preventive? Does it have a shelf life/expiration after making it? Interested in trying it but want to get a little more info first!

  14. Hi,

    First let me say.. I am a great fan of you and your DIY recipes.. I would love to try few but I stay in India.. Is there a way I can get these essential oils in India? any particular brand you can suggest? Is it possible for you to check on to suggest me good brand.
    Looking forward for your feedback.


    • Sapana-I tried to go to but I couldn’t get there. I’m wondering if you could find Eden’s Garden? They are good. Also Plant Therapy is a good one. Thank you for your kind words!! I’m sure you should be able to find some good quality oils in India it will just take some researching! Good luck!

  15. Christina says:

    Is it possible to use macadamia oil instead of meadofoam fr the eyserum because in Greece where I live there isn’t the meadofoam. I love your recipies and I have made a lot o them.Bravo keep going with new ones

  16. Is there a substitute for the lavender oil? I’m highly allergic to it.

  17. Hi Jenni

    Thank you so much for this amazing blog! I have only been making my own skin care products for a few months and have found a lot of misinformation around (recipes with no mention of spoilage, improper use of emulsifiers, etc.) prompting me to do a lot of my own research. Happily, I found your fantastic blog. I have made several of your products and they are all WONDERFUL. Thank you for your real generosity in sharing them and your knowledge! (Yes, your are my blog crush!)

    Now for a small question. I would like to make your “new and improved eye stick” but am having trouble finding Meadowfoam Seed Oil in Canada and we are on the verge of a mail strike (Yikes!) so ordering it may be a long wait.
    I have read some things that suggest Jojoba oil may be comparable and am wondering if you think it could be substituted in the same amount here. I know you choose your ingredients thoughtfully so will wait if you think it would be best to stick to your original formula.
    Apologies for the long message but i wanted you to know how much I appreciate your blog.

    • Nina-Thank you so much! There is so much bad info. out there. I try really hard to make sure I get my facts straight!! I appreciate your kind words!
      Yes, Jojoba is a great alternative-I love jojoba. You can also add extra rosehip seed. In my opinion, you can’t get enough rosehip! Good luck!
