Under Eye Wrinkle Oil

Here is another post from my other blog, Our Quarter-Acre Homestead.

Last fall I turned 35. Up until now I never really bothered with preventing wrinkles or really even gave them much thought until a few weeks ago. It seemed like every morning when I would wake up the wrinkles under my eyes were becoming more noticeable. 

I am not ready to for this. To top it all off the other day I found a grey hair...at least I think it was grey. I am a dark blonde, but I do have some lighter strands. I am going to just go ahead and say that the so called grey hair I found was just a super blonde one. Yep that is what we are going with. 

I decided that I probably should start doing something about the wrinkles I have under my eyes and started researching what essential oils I could use to help combat time. 

After some searching the most potent ones I found were...

Carrot seed oil
Tea Tree
Ylang Ylang

There are many sources that say lemon essential oil is great for aging skin, but I have decided not to add it to my list due to it's photosensitive nature.  When citrus oil is used on the skin it can cause sensitivity to the sun. I have even heard of children breaking out in blisters after handling lemons and then playing outside. This is not something I want on my face as a woman who loves to be outside.  

I decided that I would have to do my best and make something with what I had on hand. I am planning to make several other anti-aging skin treatments as soon as I get around to ordering the needed supplies. I will post those recipes as soon as I get them done. 

Under Eye Wrinkle Oil

1 ounce carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond

I am planning to add some rosehip seed oil eventually. 

Place all ingredients in a 1 ounce glass vial with a dropper. 
Apply several drops of the finished oil to under eye wrinkles morning and evening. 

I will post an update after I have used this for several weeks to let you know if I see a difference.
