DIY Face Oil-My Beauty Sleep In a Bottle…

Sharing is caring!

DIY Face Oil Beauty Sleep in a BottleLately I think I’ve found just the right skin care routine. A big part of that routine is today’s recipe for a DIY face oil. This new oil  contains some of the most effective anti aging ingredients you can find. This face oil is full of skin smoothing goodness and I believe it will be a staple in your beauty cabinet if you are looking for improvement on dryness, texture and wrinkles. 

A DIY face oil is a simple product to make. There is no heat required which is a great thing for sparing the integrity and benefits of each ingredient.  Be sure to not skimp on quality of your ingredients. Your face oil is only as good as your ingredients. I try to find quality ingredients we can get on Amazon. However, I always recommend Mountain Rose Herbs for ensured quality. You just can’t beat them. 

Get quality oils and you’ll make a quality product that would sell for $100+ in an exclusive skin care line. 

I wanted to create something that would deeply nourish my skin during the dry winter months.  My moisturizer works well in the morning but my skin just needed more.  I also need something that will even my skin tone and soften wrinkles.  I use this product at night only but feel free to use it as your only moisturizer.  I find 5-7 drops is all I need. 

In the morning, my skin feels completely hydrated and baby smooth which is while I’ve dubbed it my beauty sleep in a bottle!

Ingredient Benefits for DIY Face Oil:

Rosehip has always been my number 1 go-to when it comes to anti aging oils. It is a powerhouse of an oil and I tend to grab for it often when my skin is in need of a pick me up!

Benefits of Rosehip Seed Oil:

  • Penetrates deep into the skin
  • Regenerates skin cells
  • Increases collagen production
  • Rich in Vitamin C
  • Rich in fatty acids
  • Restores skin’s elasticity
  • Fades age/sun spots
  • Reduces broken capillaries
  • Moisturizes

More Anti Aging Rosehip Oil Recipes:

The next oil I’ve added is jojoba oil.  I love jojoba oil.  For those of you that are leery of using oil on your skin, jojoba oil is the perfect oil for you.  It is often suggested for oilier skin types because it is the closest oil to our natural skin’s sebum.  It gives our pores the memo that they do not need to over produce oil.  If you’re dry, it simply nourishes the skin.  When in doubt, use jojoba oil-that’s my new motto.

Benefits of Jojoba Oil

  • Antibacterial
  • Non-greasy
  • High Vitamin E content
  • Non-Comedogenic (won’t clog pores)
  • Anti Inflammatory
  • Moisturizing
  • Calming

Pomegranate Seed Oil is a new oil for me but such a beneficial oil for anti aging.  It’s a close 2nd to rosehip seed oil, in my opinion. I love working with this product, especially in my Anti Wrinkle Eye Stick recipe!

Pomegranate Seed Oil Benefits

  • Increases collagen production
  • Protects existing collagen
  • High Vitamin C content
  • Restores elasticity
  • Balances pH
  • Improves Skin Tone
  • Healing/calming
  • Moisturizes
  • Penetrates deeply
  • High Antioxidant content

Non-GMO Vitamin E oil is a no-brainer.  Do yourself a favor-buy a 2-4 ounce bottle of Vitamin E oil and add it to every DIY you make (that is not water based).  Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant.  It’s anti aging powers are well known and the perfect booster for this treatment. It also helps prolong the shelf life of your face oil!

As far as essential oils, I stuck with my go-tos.  Lavender and Geranium are excellent for the skin.  Geranium is my favorite anti aging essential oilLavender is calming as well as beautifying. 

Other anti aging essential oils you could add are Carrot Seed, Neroli , or Rose

DIY Face Oil = Big Savings!

I’m going to do something different for this post.  Since I’m really urging you to buy QUALITY oils, I have totaled what it will cost to get started on this DIY and also figured out how many bottles you can make from your investment!

So, if you buy each of these ingredients (5ml sizes in essential oils and the 8 ounce size of rosehip) you will spend about $100.  BUT-you will be getting 16 bottles of your handmade night treatment!  That’s $6.25 per bottle!  Wow.  Did I mention you are only using 5-7 drops a night? 

Your 1 ounce DIY face oil will last quite a while.  What a nice gesture to make a bottle for your friends, mom, sisters, neighbors etc.!  Hey, everyone should love organic, handmade skin care, come on!  Oh and, these type of oils (as long as they are kept out of light) will last over a year or more.

Mother Nature always knows best!

  1. Hi Jenni
    As I would like to try making this today and the store I get my supplies from is out of Pomegranete Seed Oil at the moment can I replace that quantity by using more Rosehip oil?? thanks

  2. I think you read my mind Jenni πŸ™‚ My skin has been pretty dry since the cold weather has arrived. I make my own facial oil blend but the one that I use for the day just isn’t enough for the winter, so last night I went and created a heavier one to use at night. It’s pretty similar, except instead of jojoba oil (which I love and use during the day) I substituted with argan oil. I don’t have pomegranate seed oil, so I’ll have to see if I can find some of that to add, and I always forget about vit E. I’ll add that when I get home. Thanks so much for all your recipes, I love them.

  3. Hii jen.. i loveee rosehip oil too.. i tried mix it with jojoba but still find it too dry.. so i use avocado instead.. never tried using vit e and pomegranate though.. but currently i’m mixing rosehip with avocado, neroli and helicrysum..i wanna try tamanu too

  4. Hi Jenni,

    Just a question for you – how long have you used this serum? I made it the very next day after this post and love how my skin feels so far. Just curious how long you have used it since I am wondering when I could expect any visible results in my skin’s appearance. Really nice serum, so easy to make and you are right, so much less expensive than buying a similar product that would end up containing mainly fillers vs the “good stuff”! Thanks!!

  5. This looks like a great oil, but like you said, a spendy start-up project. Is there any chance you will sell it in your etsy store? I would buy a bottle right away!

  7. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, terrific blog!

  8. My spous and I stumbled over here from a different website and thought I mighht as well check things out.
    I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward
    to exploring your web page again.

  9. Hi there, I just purchased a Vitamin C oil with Jojoba and Rosehip oil all mix together…how would this change the recipe? Can I substitute Raspberry seed oil for polmagrante seed oil in this recipe?

  10. Great recipe. I followed it, but it only filled half the bottle. Should the be table spoons not tea spoons? Thanks πŸ™‚

  11. Hi Jenni,
    I really prefer lotions to serums. What ratios would I use of the oils to make a comparable lotion?
    I really do love your blog, your recipes have given me amazing results!

    1. Mia-I typically use 50% oils to 50% water in my lotion recipes. I have a lot of different lotion recipes that will explain exactly how to make one and what proportions to use. You can find them on my DIY skin care directory page! Thank you os much-I’m so glad you’re loving what you’ve made!!

  12. Hi Jenni! I just love your beautiful photo for your 12/21 post. And I can’t wait to try this recipe! I have used and still use your excellent recipes. And appreciate how informative all your posts are concerning using the ingredients and your own experience of using them. All your posts are beautiful and so inspiring! You are truly talented, lady!

    1. Elizabeth-Thank you so much! You are too kind. I appreciate these words very much. Sorry to take so long to respond-I have taken a very long break from blogging and just decided to check my blog this morning. Thank you again for taking the time to encourage me. It’s much needed!
