DIY Eye Cream Using Essential Oils*

This DIY eye cream uses essential oils to help reduce wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, and tighten skin. Essential oils are very effective at reducing inflammation, which is a major cause of wrinkles. They also have anti-aging properties that will help to keep your skin looking young, hydrated and radiant.*

DIY eye cream is easy to make, and you only need a few ingredients. This eye cream can also be used as an anti-aging face cream.*

Vitamin E Oil & Sweet Almond Oil

Using vitamin E oil in this recipe is great for protecting skin from free radicals, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, plus it has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce dark circles under your eyes.

You may also use sweet almond oil in your DIY eye cream. Sweet almond oil is known to help lighten the dark circles under your eyes and reduce under-eye puffiness. Sweet almond oil is anti-inflammatory and has antioxidant properties. It also contains retinol, vitamin E, and vitamin K, which can keep the delicate skin under your eyes smooth without irritating it.*

Essential Oils for DIY Eye Cream

Frankincense, rose, lavender, Roman chamomile and cypress essential oils are great for wrinkles because they contain cineole (also known as eucalyptol). These essential oils help reduce inflammation in your body by opening up airways in the lungs when you breathe it in through your nose or mouth. They also acts as an antioxidant when applied topically on skin cells which helps prevent premature aging by preventing free radical damage from occurring within the cell structure itself.*

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense essential oil strengthens the body by regulating skin tones and healing infected skin. This oil is also known to reduce the appearance of age spots, skin discoloration, and sunspots. Frankincense is often used in popular perfume brands in the world. It can also be used cosmetically in creams for skin treatments and is great for tightening the skin. If you have uneven skin tone or dark circles under the eyes, you can use frankincense essential oil to help.*

Rose Essential Oil

Aging causes our skin to produce less collagen, this then leads to fine lines and wrinkles.* Rose essential oil is high in vitamin C and can help to boost healthy collagen production.* Rose essential oil is also incredible for dry skin.*

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil is a natural remedy useful for skin care, minor burns, scars, blemishes, bumps, rashes and dry skin. Lavender is the most common essential oil and helps to drain out fluid stored under the eyes that eventually cause those under eye bags. Lavender reduces the appearance of skin imperfections, and it can soothe occasional skin irritations. Lavender essential oil is the perfect oil for the face and under the eyes as it is very gentle and can be used on sensitive skin.*

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil

Roman chamomile essential oil has been used since ancient times for its calming effects on both mind & body.  Adding Roman chamomile essential oil to your eye cream will sooth and reduce inflamation and minimize puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles. Regular use brightens under eyes and reveals a more supple tone.*

Cypress Essential Oil

Cypress essential oil can help with blood circulation when applied topically to the skin, making it a great oil for dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.*

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is amazing for the skin because it is moisturizing, antioxidant and emollient.  It also reduces wrinkles, fine lines and has anti-inflammatory properties, especially when used around the eyes. It is also very gentle and one of the best products to use on the face, plus it works great on sensitive skin or dry skin.*

How to Use DIY Eye Cream

To use your eye cream, simply apply it to your under-eye area. You can do this in the morning or evening (or both). After applying, wait for the cream to absorb into your skin before applying moisturizer on top of it.
