Moisturizing Facial Serum

  • 2 tsp Almond oil

  • 6 drops Frankincense essential oil

  • 2 drops Lemon essential oil

  • 4 drops Myrrh essential oil

Blend all ingredients together and mix thoroughly. Apply the mixture to a clean face and neck.

We always recommend diluting essential oils with a carrier oil like Almond Oil when applied topically on the skin.  Benefits of safe dilution include:

  • Increased absorption into the skin

Essential oils are highly volatile substances.  If applied directly to the skin, a portion of the oil will not be absorbed due to evaporation.  Carrier oils prevent essential oils from evaporating while on the skin, which maximizes absorption time.

  • Prevention of skin irritation or sensitivity to the Essential Oil

Depending on your skin sensitivity, you may experience skin irritation when applying essential oils topically.  Proper dilution reduces the likelihood of skin irritation when an oil is used topically.  Continued use of an essential oil that has not been diluted properly can lead to a developed sensitivity to the oil.  Even if an oil is not causing a reaction when applied undiluted, irreversible damage may occur through repeated exposure.

  • Maximizes the effectiveness of the Essential Oil

Essential oils are so pure and potent, they are intended to be diluted.  Contrary to popular belief, using an oil undiluted does not necessarily mean you will receive better results.  Unless you are using an undiluted oil under the supervision of a trained professional, you will receive maximum benefits from an oil if it is diluted appropriately.  You will also get more applications out of one bottle if you dilute the essential oil when applying topically.

Almond oil
I've only used the Almond oil a couple of times, so far, but I am very pleased with it! And I really love RMO essential oils! I have changed the way I do a lot of things. I make all my own DIY hand wipes, personal wipes and bathroom and toilet cleaning wipes, room sprays, etc. using your products!

All carrier oils...
Disapointing... RMO does not have any relevant information online about the carrier oils they sell. Such as origin of the oil, process to obtain them (cold pressed or expelled pressed), if it's hexane free, if it's refined or unrefined. Those are very important qualities to look for in a carrier oil.

My massage therapist likes it mixed with a little FCO. He likes the 'slip'. I like it for a carrier for a family member allergic to coconut.
