DIY Face Serum

Make your own DIY face serum enriched with doTERRA essential oils. Nourish your skin making it look healthier and more youthful.

The hardest part about making your own DIY face serum is deciding which essential oils you want to use. There are so many that are great for your skin. Some essential oils have similar benefits whilst others contribute their own.

You will need a carrier oil for your DIY face serum. I personally always use doTERRA’s Fractionated Coconut Oil as the fat content has been removed so it does not stain your clothes, it has no smell and it too has great benefits for the skin. You can alternatively use jojoba oil, rosehip oil, almond oil or another carrier oil of your choosing. IAs far as essential oils go I generally use some or all of the following; Frankincense, Yarrow Pom, Helichrysum, Lavender, Cedarwood, Copaiba and Ylang Ylang essential oils. However, there are still so many others that are also beneficial for your skin.

What you will need

  • A glass pump or serum pump bottle. I used a 50 ml glass serum pump.
  • Approximately 20 to 40 drops of essential oils of choice. I personally generally use a combination of some or all of the following essential oils: Frankincense, Yarrow Pom, Helichrysum, Lavender, Cedarwood, Copaiba and Ylang Ylang. There are so many others that are also beneficial for your skin.
  • doTERRA fractionated coconut oil (or carrier oil of choosing).

How to Make your face serum

Add the essential oils you have chosen to the glass pump bottle and top up with fractionated coconut oil. This is where a mini funnel will come in handy to avoid spillage. Give it a good shake to mix the oils up and apply before or in combination with your moisturiser.

NOTE: If using citrus essential oils apply at night before bed and not of a morning before going outside. They are extra sensitive to the UV light and should be avoided with topical use outside.
