DIY Anti Wrinkle Eye Stick!

DIY ANTI WRINKLE EYE STICK

Once you hit mid 30’s it’s time to use an eye cream.  To be honest, I have never felt the need to use and eye cream.  Now, I have the need.  Fine lines have made a home around my eyes, not to mention puffiness and dark circles.  Blame it on the kids, not enough water, bad eating habits, age-whatever it is, it’s time to replenish and nourish that delicate skin and prevent future lines from cropping up too prematurely!

This is a simple recipe.  If you can make lip balm then this will be a cinch!  I put it in a lip balm tube for added convenience and keep it by my bed so I can apply it nightly!  You’ll love the creamy consistency that is easily swiped around the eyes (and even around the mouth) for gentle yet thorough application!  This recipe calls for Shea butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Carrot Seed Essential Oil, Vitamin E oil, Frankincense essential oil and good ole Lavender!

DIY Eye Cream

Meadowfoam Seed Oil is an excellent oil for aging skin. It absorbs quickly but leaves a light barrier that holds moisture in the skin. It’s softening and moisturizing power is amazing. It provides natural protection from the sun and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It is rich in Vitamins C and E.

Shea Butter helps rebuild collagen and is ultra moisturizing.  Coconut Oil heals and calms as well as moisturizes with out clogging pores.  Vitamin E oil is excellent for all skin types and helps prolong the shelf life of your product.  Frankincense oil is excellent in regenerating healthy skin cells.  It balances the skin and helps other oils to penetrate deeper.  Lavender essential oil calms and balances the skin as well as adding a lovely scent to your eye cream.

Carrot Seed essential oil is the real STAR of this eye cream.  It contains a large amount of antioxidants, vitamin C and Vitamin K.  These components help to protect against stress, UV rays and pollution.  Carotenoids have been found to enhance the body’s immune response to UV rays, which can decrease skin damage from UV exposure.  Carrot Seed oil is healing and rejuvenates skin cells. In fact, carrot seed oil helps to heal eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis because of its ability to stimulate cell growth and repair damaged skin.  Carrot Seed oil also helps to balance the skin-it will not clog pores, but will moisturize dry skin.

Anti Aging Eye Roll On

1 TBSP Meadowfoam Seed Oil (buy it HERE)

2 tsp. Unrefined Organic Coconut oil (buy it HERE)

1.5 tsp. Beeswax (buy it HERE)

1/2 tsp. Shea Butter (buy it HERE)

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

4 drops Carrot Seed essential oil (buy it HERE)

5 drops Frankincense essential oil (buy it HERE)

8 drops Lavender essential oil (buy it HERE)

Directions:

  1. In a glass Pyrex bowl placed in a pot of water add Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter.
  2. Turn stove only to medium heat.  Do not let the water boil.
  3. Once all ingredients are melted remove from heat and add essential oils and vitamin E oil.
  4. Pour into a lip balm tube.  Use THESE pipettes for easy transfer into tubes!  They make life much easier!

PIN IT for later!!!

Anti Wrinkle Eye Stick DIY

This recipe makes 1 ounce.  You could probably fill up about 5-6 lip balm tubes so share with friends!!  I put the excess in a .85 (25ml) ounce glass jar.  Find lip balm tubes HERE.

Anti Wrinkle Eye Stick

The shelf life of this eye cream is 6 months.  Apply a thin layer around the bottom of your eye.  Do not get in your eye.  Use nightly before bedtime.  Less is more-If you apply too much, you’ll be a grease-bomb!  Remember, this is such a pure product-the only thing close to a filler is beeswax and beeswax is actually beneficial in protecting your skin!  A little bit goes a long way!!

This is probably the easiest DIY you can do for the maximum pay off-You’ll see results within days-Your skin cells will plump and smooth when nourished with this handy little stick!

**Drink plenty of water and get plenty of sleep-this alone will improve the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and lines.  Add a potent, pure eye cream and you WILL see results!

xx, Jenni

    This sounds awesome. I have had dark circles forever and this recipe sounds wonderful! 😀 And all the other aging signs as well lol! Thank you. By the way I found you through Camp Wander and I love all of her recipe’s too. 😀

    • November 14, 2013 / 6:06 pm

      Thank you Chandice! I love your name-I notice it on facebook and here! Thanks for reading my blog! Love me some Camp Wander too!

    Is there another substitute for coconut oil because my skin just wont agree with it and i’ve notice that i break out from it, please help.

    thank you,
    Stacey

    • November 14, 2013 / 6:05 pm

      Stacey, You could substitute any oil for coconut oil……olive oil, jojoba, etc. You could just use all Meadowfoam as well. It’s a nice light oil that does wonders for delicate skin!
      Thanks for reading!

    • November 18, 2013 / 4:12 pm

      How about you make it and I buy it from you lol !!

    • November 18, 2013 / 5:45 pm

      Yes yes! I’m just starting with essential oils and don’t have all these ingredients collected yet. I would love to be able to buy this!

  4. November 18, 2013 / 4:59 pm

    I’m allergic to nuts so don’t really like using Coconut oil , but Stacey asked my question for me..I do have another one though where do you get the oils from?? x

    • November 18, 2013 / 5:47 pm

      If I don’t get them from my local Sprouts I buy from Amazon and Mountain Rose Herb. I try to link all my ingredients so you know where to purchase. Thanks for reading! I hope you find a good substitute for coconut oil that your skin likes!

  5. November 19, 2013 / 12:59 am

    Hi I react to Shea Butter, is there something else I can use? (I get a rash with the Shea Butter)

    • November 19, 2013 / 6:48 pm

      You could try cocoa butter or you could admit the shea butter all together! I hope that helps!

  6. November 30, 2013 / 7:36 pm

    Can I replace the Meadowfoam with anything else? I have a ton of different oils. I have sea buckthorn, raspberry seed, carrot, etc.

    • December 1, 2013 / 10:32 pm

      Yes you can! I have never worked with Sea Buckthorn but plan to. Like meadowfoam, sea buckthorn is very popular in the skin care world right now. Use any oil you like. You might try to do some research making sure the oil you choose will be light and absorb easily into the skin. Thanks!!

  7. December 2, 2013 / 9:51 pm

    Luv this recipe …. I’ll be making this soon. I think Jojoba will work, don’t you? Or even sweet almond oil? I don’t have the meadowfoam … yet..!!

    Much Peace,

    Pam

    • December 2, 2013 / 11:27 pm

      Yes, absolutely! I would suggest sweet almond oil for a boost in Vitamin E! Thanks!

      This is my version of an eye cream-I am hoping that in “stick” form it is easier to use!

    Ok, thank you. I misread your last statement about sleep, water and adding an eye cream – I thought you meant in addition to this eye roll on.

    Your site is awesome. Thanks! If you have more makeup tips (brilliant Highlighter!) keep them coming.

    I positively love the eye stick and the meadow foam serum. I’ve had some bad spots on my face that I’ve paid a dermatologist a fortune to remove. Bad spots were removed, but came back within 6 months, and those treatments hurt! Used your serum and the eye stick together , decided if eye stick was good enough for my eyes, it might work for the bad spots that had returned. AMAZING! Within 2 days the dry scaly patch was gone. Just GONE! I need a gallon please.

    I also made your body wash recipe and complained it was a tad too drying. Well duh! It wasn’t combined well enough. Stirred it together better, and love the body wash. Love your lavender lemon facial wash also. Having a blast using your recipes. Thanks so very much.

    • January 17, 2014 / 8:21 am

      Daniela! Thanks so much-what great compliments! I love to hear testimonials-everyone’s skin responds differently so congrats on finding something your skin likes! Yes, the body wash can separate but after a couple of uses and shaking each time mine always blends so I don’t have to shake every time. If you have shea butter you can always melt some and add it in. That will give you a boost of moisture! I am having to do that-this winter has been rough!

    Your link to the vitamin E product actually goes to an Aloe gel. Can I use grape seed oil instead of vitamin E?

    • February 8, 2014 / 3:36 pm

      Erika-thanks for telling me! I will fix it! You can, but you won’t be getting the anti aging benefits of vitamin E. I would use sweet almond-it’s high in vitamin E. Tamanu or borage would be great too!

    • February 8, 2014 / 3:37 pm

      Erika, i just checked the link, since it’s mountain rose herb they don’t have individual pages for each product-you have to scroll down to find the vitamin E.

        Totally unrelated question but have you found a make-up line you really like? I am looking for medium coverage powder

        • Daniela
          February 14, 2014 / 6:45 am

          Erica: hope I’m not overstepping boundaries, but noticed your question regarding medium coverage powder. I have finally found one I like. For a straight powder I like Paula’s Choice, the powder goes on very smooth and for problem spots I use a concealer brush with same powder to add a bit more coverage. An applicator does NOT come with this powder? I have very extreme dry skin and this powder does not bother me as much as others. Of course using Jenni’s recipes and products my skin dryness is much better.

    Hi! I have a major problem with puffiness in the mornings. Can I add coffee eo to this? Will that help enough?

    Thanks!

    • April 8, 2014 / 8:02 am

      Wendy-Unfortunately coffee essential oil does not contain caffeine and caffeine is what depuffs. You can always leave your eye stick in the fridge and apply first thing in the morning-the cold will reduce bags. Cucumbers will help too. I am super puffy too from allergies. I try to drink as much water as humanly possible. Also, lying flat when you sleep can cause bags to form, if it’s comfortable, sleeping with your head elevated on pillows really helps. Thanks!

      • Wendy
        April 10, 2014 / 9:38 am

        Thanks so much Jennifer! I do drink tons of water as I Nordic walk daily, but those darn bags still persist! LOL I will try the eye stick in the fridge and the cucumbers as well.

        Thanks for the tips! Love your site BTW! Just discovered it!

    So I started getting wrinkles under my eyes ugghhh. So got the Somaluxe Moisturizer due to the reviews but was skeptic. I put it under my eyes in the morning when I took a shower and waited for it to try maybe 5 mins and then put my own lotion on it. I started seeing results in 2 weeks not one day like someone say.

    But it’s been almost 2 months and I have no wrinkles under my eyes. Not sure how it gets rid of them? I am guessing the Somaluxe Moisturizer plumps your skin up somehow but it’s got me hooked and I’ll continue to use it. Hope this helps someone.

    Hi!!!
    Wow this site is amazing, I bought everything to make the eye stick, but there is also one comment from Daniela who said that the meadow foam serum together with the eye stick helped her to get rid of spots…but I can’t find the recipe for the serum!!!!?????

      • Andrea
        August 12, 2014 / 8:55 am

        Thank you for the fast reply! I will try both 🙂 (stick and serum) I hope it works as it did for Daniela , ill let you know!

    Would like to shout out a huge THANK YOU JENNI! Since I started using your recipes and some of your products, not only is my skin better – a huge eye allergy problem has cleared up! Have suffered from severe dry eye for years and Dr called it one of the worse eye allergy problems he has ever seen. Used perscription eye drops,which didn’t really help. My last eye exam, Dr made comment that my red allergy eyes had really cleared up, what was I doing different? It wasn’t until someone made a comment on an Essential Oil FaceBook post regarding “oils in the eye” that it dawned on me — could it be?? The Essential oils, the Coconut oil, jojoba oils, and all the other fabulous ingredients that Jenni Raincloud promotes in her recipes and uses in her products have got to be what has cleared up my allergy eyes! I was NOT putting anything other than perscribed eye drops in my eye, and still don’t. But never, would I have imagined my previous skin care products would have been causing my eye allergy. Sorry, don’t have scientific proof, but I’m loving my results and giving Jenni Raincloud and fabulous ingredients the credit. Plus once I started using essential oils in skin care recipes, I’ve branched out into other health areas for Essential Oils and my husband and I are showing some great health improvements from Essential Oils. Thanks Jenni.

    Loving your recipes and site – any suggestions on this for replacing the beeswax? I’m a vegan and don’t use it… thanks!

    • August 22, 2014 / 12:22 pm

      Cindy-Unfortunately I have not found a vegan alternative for beeswax. If you leave it out, you would have a serum which works great around the eyes as well. In fact, I’ve been experimenting on leaving it out and putting it in a roller bottle since I can’t have it in my Etsy shop in the summer due to melting.

      • Cindy
        October 13, 2014 / 11:01 pm

        Thanks for the suggestion! I also just ordered some Carnauba Wax, so I’ll give that a try too…

      • Cindy
        December 7, 2016 / 4:32 pm

        For anyone else out there who avoids beeswax, I had success making this (and other oil and wax based salves) by using Carnauba Wax – use about half the amount of wax than called for in the recipe, as beeswax is much softer than carnauba.

    I really love your site! I would like to make this eye stick but where did the recipe go for the eye stick? There is a recipe for a roll-on but it does not include all the ingredients.

    • September 9, 2014 / 5:27 pm

      Lydia-Thanks so much! The Roll On recipe is the same as the Eye Stick-I need to change my wording. What ingredients were you thinking were in the stick? The roll on recipe is what has always been here.

      • Lydia
        September 9, 2014 / 8:47 pm

        The first paragraoph states: “This recipe calls for Shea butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Carrot Seed Essential Oil, Vitamin E oil, Frankincense essential oil and good ole Lavender” and this is the recipe: Anti Aging Eye Roll On

        1 TBSP Meadowfoam Seed Oil (buy it HERE)

        2 tsp. Unrefined Organic Coconut oil (buy it HERE)

        1.5 tsp. Beeswax (buy it HERE)

        Where are the rest of the ingredients?

    I was wondering, why do you only put this eye cream on during night and only under the eye? Thanks for your blog, so many amazing skincare recipes 🙂

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:05 pm

      Anna-I don’t, you can put it on anytime, anywhere. I think I did specify at night because it can be a bit oily and take a while to soak in. I use mine my eyebrows where I have wrinkles. I have someone who told me they use it all over their face during dry times!

  26. Pam
    January 28, 2015 / 3:56 pm

    do you use beeswax to keep it solid?

  27. Denise
    April 7, 2015 / 6:47 am

    Hi Jenni, I’m in love with tour blog. I’m new into creams making and I wish I could do them al at once, but for now I REALLY wanna tey the eye stick recipe. Can I swith the beeswax with emulsifying wax. What is the difference between the two of them?

    • April 14, 2015 / 6:53 pm

      Denise-Hi! I wouldn’t. Emulsifying wax is one of those ingredients that is necessary to bind water and oil. It does nothing good for the skin. Unfortunately, it is impossible to make a creamy moisturizer without it, otherwise I would omit it. Beeswax is to be used to harden oils and butters. Beeswax is natural and actually provides a layer of protection and nourishment over the skin.

      • Denise
        April 15, 2015 / 6:08 pm

        Tks Jenni for your reply. Over the last weeks I’ve been reading a lot about cream and EO and learn a little bit about the purpose of the most use ingredients.

  28. Ali
    April 27, 2015 / 1:08 pm

    Hi Jenni,

    I made this last week and I have some questions. How long does this take to absorb for you? I can see/feel it on my skin for at least an hour – almost like straight coconut oil. I followed your recipe, only substituting argan oil for meadow foam which shouldn’t make a difference in this context. Any idea or is that just how it is?

    Thanks
    Ali

    • April 27, 2015 / 5:58 pm

      Ali-You are probably using too much. It’s so potent that it takes so very little. I don’t have this issue but meadowfoam is known to be light and absorb easily. I would cut way down on how much you use and see if that helps!

  29. Daniela
    April 29, 2015 / 7:41 am

    Love love love your eye stick. Mountain rose apparently no longer carries Meadowfoam. Can you please recommend a reliable source for meadowfoam? Thanks so much.

    June 2, 2015 / 10:07 pm

    Thanks Jenni! I just tried this recipe today. I’m pretty new to making my own products, so just wanted to ask, after you fill your tubes or containers, do you cap them right away, or let them cool first? Thanks again, I love your blog, and used your code at Spark!

    • June 3, 2015 / 11:14 am

      Britt-No need to cap immediately. In fact I try to not touch them because I tend to be clumsy and what a mess it is if one knocks over! Thank you so much!

    Hi Jennifer, I had a question. Can Frankincense EO be replaced with another EO? I have ingredients except Frank…
    TIA. (hope you’re doing well)

    • August 30, 2015 / 7:55 pm

      Nora-Sure! Cypress Essential Oil is also firming. You can skip the frankincense all together too-Carrot Seed does so much for the skin.

    Hi jenni, I can’t find meadowfoam seed oil in my country, is there any replacement for this? Thank you 🙂

    • September 8, 2015 / 9:06 am

      Mavis-Yes, you could replace it with Sweet Almond Oil, Rosehip Oil, Evening Primrose-basically anything you like as long as it’s an oil!

    February 7, 2016 / 10:56 pm

    Hi Jenni, loving your website! I was wondering if I could use aloe vera gel straight from the plant as I have it growing in the garden? I was hoping to make the eye serum recipe. Thanks! 😊

    • February 8, 2016 / 11:49 am

      Sue-Thank you! Actually, aloe vera has a water base so it will create a bacteria issue when mixed with this recipe. It’s awesome to use fresh, straight from the garden aloe though but it has a tiny shelf life-It’s best to bring in a leaf and use it up within a couple of days-You could apply it right to the skin and dab on an essential oil or too over it?!

      • Sue
        February 8, 2016 / 5:27 pm

        Great idea Jenni and thanks for your speedy response. Will definitely give that a try 😊

    Hi Jenni,

    I would like to prepare this anti-wrinkle cream, but I am confused. On the picture at the top of this page I can see a solid cream in a lipstick tube, while on Etsy the same product seems to be liquid, and it comes in a roll-on stick. So what is the texture afterall? Thank you!
