Stressed Skin Oil

As soon as the weather turns cold, my face often becomes very stressed and sensitive.  I make a small batch of this Stressed Skin Oil and massage a few drops in the morning and at night on gently cleansed skin. I use several different types of oils because I have all these on hand and like the unique benefits that each oil provides.  If I had to choose only a few oils to use, they would be Argan Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Calendula Infused Oil and Tamanu Oil.   You can find all the ingredients at Mountain Rose Herbs!!!

Stressed Skin Oil

7 ml Calendula Infused Oil (find the recipe for making your own HERE)
8 ml Plantain & Nettle Leaf Infused Oil (find the recipe for making your own HERE)
5 ml Tamanu Oil
2 ml Argan Oil
2 ml Borage Oil
1 ml Sea Buckthorn Oil
5 ml Jojoba Oil
5 ml Baobab Seed Oil
2 ml Emu Oil
2 ml Rosehip Seed Oil
1 ml Vitamin E Oil
1 ml Evening Primrose Oil
(If you don't have all these oils on hand, choose any from the above (except Vitamin E Oil) and measure a total of 43 ml and then add in the 1 ml of Vitamin E)

Essential Oils:
4 drops German Blue Chamomile
4 drops Helichrysum 
2 drops Sandalwood

Measure the Calendula Infused Oil, Plantain & Nettle Infused Oil, Tamanu Oil, Argan Oil, Borage Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Jojoba Oil, Baobab Seed Oil, Emu Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Vitamin E and Evening Primrose Oil into a small glass measuring container.
