  • 1-ounce glass jar (dark glass will help protect the integrity of the oils)


  • 1 ounce carrier oil
  • 3–6 drops essential oil


  • For every ounce of carrier oil, add 3–6 drops of essential oil. If you're feeling adventurous, you can use 2–3 carrier oils that address different skin needs. Carrier oils can be mixed with equal parts in the same jar.

If using more than one essential oil, make sure you only use 6 drops EO per 1 ounce total carrier oil. 
Whenever trying a new essential oil on your skin, make sure to do a test patch first on the inside of your wrist.
Store your facial oil in a cool, dry place such as the refrigerator, and use it within 6 months.
