About a month ago, I wrote about the anti-aging benefits of rosehip oil, this time I'll be sharing a homemade eye cream using rosehip oil. I figure this would make the most of the expensive essential oil. The cream consistency is also better for eyes that have fine lines.
3 tsp jojoba oil
3 tsp apricot kernel oil
3 tsp Rosehip seed oil
5 drops carrot-seed essential oil
1 1/2 tsp beeswax pastilles
5 tsp rose-water (optional)
Place beeswax, jojoba, rosehip and apricot oils in a double boiler. Heat very gently to melt wax. Stir well, remove from heat. Slowly stir in remaining ingredients. Place in fridge until set. Makes a small 2.5 oz jar. Use under eyes in the morning and evening.
