Pomegranate & Argan Facial Oil for Night

I made a small 5 ml bottle of a wonderful Pomegranate & Argan Facial Oil for Night with the new essential oils I recently purchased.  I chose Carrot Seed, Rose Otto, Roman Chamomile, Frankincense, Helichrysum and Neroli essential oils.  All of these essential oils are wonderful for the skin and provide excellent nourishing properties.  Paired along with Pomegranate and Argan oils, this is one potent and protective skin serum for nighttime. The ingredients are a bit pricy, but this only makes 5 ml which can last for one month. 

I bought all the essential oils (except the Rose Otto) from Mountain Rose Herbs

Pomegranate Seed Oil is a  luxurious and deeply penetrating oil from the cold pressed organic seeds of Pomegranate fruit. This highly prized oil which is naturally high in flavonoids and punicic acid is remarkable for the skin and has numerous dietary benefits as well. Deeply nourishing to the outer epidermal layer, Pomegranate seed oil provides powerful anti-oxidant benefits for numerous skin ailments including eczema, and psoriasis and gently challenges free radicals that damage and age the skin. A great ally to have in your cosmetic creations or as a stand alone product to help nourish and develop healthy skin cell regeneration. You can purchase it at Mountain Rose Herbs

Argan Oil is a very rare and exquisite oil that is meticulously expeller pressed from the fruit kernels of the Moroccan Argan tree. Argan oil is rich in natural tocopherols (vitamin E) and phenols, carotenes, squalene and fatty acids, making it a truly luxurious oil. Argan oil absorbs quickly and is often used in skin, nail and hair treatments to deliver deep hydration, strengthen brittle hair and nails, and prevent/reduce stretch marks. I like Mountain Rose Herbs Argan Oil because it is Certified Organic through OTCO.

Just 2 ml of each oil is all it takes.
