Peach and Cypress Facial Serum

Another recipe for a simple facial serum.  This recipe has peach kernel oil and Sea Buckthorn oil. I like peach kernel oil because it is a mild, moisturizing oil, and is readily absorbed into the skin without leaving it oily.  I like to use it for skin that is inflamed and both dry and oily at the same time.....a.k.a "combination skin". I used Mountain Rose Herbs Sea Buckthorn oil in this recipe. 

Sea Buckthorn Berries
According to Mountain Rose Herbs, Sea Buckthorn Oil is a  useful, highly prized oil typically used to treat damaged skin. It can be applied directly to the skin or included within skin care preparations that are designed to relieve occasional symptoms of problematic skin conditions. This oil contains essential fatty acids, carotenes, tocopherols, and phytosterols. It is a concentrated oil, and they  suggest to use sparingly. The sea buckthorn oil offered by Mountain Rose Herbs was processed by the cold press method of the entire berry with seeds. 

the bright red liquid in the middle is Sea Buckthorn oil.  It really should be diluted so you won't stain your skin. 
Peach and Cypress Facial Serum

13 ml Peach Kernel Oil (**you can also use Mountain Rose Herbs Apricot Oil if you like)
3 drops Cypress essential oil (midly antiseptic to the skin)
2 drops Pink Grapefruit essential oil (decongests clogged pores)
5 drops Lavender essential oil (soothes dry skin)
3 drops Ylang Ylang essential oil (balances oil production)

Mix all ingredients into a one-ounce amber glass dropper bottle. Shake well.  Store in a cool place. 

To use: Massage a few drops into clean damp skin before you moisturize.  Makes a great cuticle oil as well.
