This is one of my go-to recipes for a face serum with natural ingredients. 

Making your own DIY skin care products is a real money saver.

It’s super simple to make your own face serum with natural and organic ingredients and oils from Amazon. 

Buy the ingredients in bulks and they will last you a lifetime.

It’s fulfilling to know exactly what goes onto your skin and therefore into your body – this way you have the control and avoid any unnecessary chemicals and no-no ingredients.

You can purchase the containers for a cheap price on Amazon or your local arts & crafts store.

If you’re lucky, you can even find some really pretty containers at antique shops or thrift shops.

But make sure you clean these excessively before use.

Let’s dive in, shall we?

First up. You’ll need an empty and clean dropper bottle.




That’s it, guys.

Let me explain why these oils are good for your skin…



Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is almost identical to our own skin-oil called the “sebum”.

And for this reason, it is easily absorbed by the skin and won’t stay on top of the skin as an oily residue.

This oil is especially neat for people with acne and sunburns.

It derives from a plant called simmondsia chinensis.

It can also be used alone to treat sores and bruises.

When I don’t have my go-to coconut oil at my disposal for the cleaning of the face – jojoba oil will also do the trick.



Vitamin E

This is one of my favorite oils and I have used this one alone as a moisturizer (for sleepy time) for a long time.

It is great for fighting wrinkles and smoothing out scars and age spots.

Vitamin E oil will also help fight off free radicals and it really softens up your skin.

It’s both a nutrient and an antioxidant.

It’s super nourishing and amazing for people with dry skin (ME!).



Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is my favorite essential oil.

The smell alone soothes and relaxes me. It’s even said to be antimicrobial, calming and antidepressive benefits.

Other benefits include:

  • Improves sleep
  • Relieves pain and headaches
  • Better brain function
  • Lowers chances for anxiety
  • Reduces emotional stress
  • Soothes burns and bruises
  • Fights acne
  • Repairs skin complexion

So why wouldn’t we want to add this beautiful oil to our skincare regime?



Tea Tree Essential Oil

You’ve probably heard of tea tree oil, right?

It’s said to do wonders for people suffering from acne and acts as an anti-inflammatory property and fights off bad bacteria on your skin.

It can calm redness, swelling, and inflammation caused by well yes, acne.

Please don’t put this oil directly onto your skin, you’ll want to dilute it in what is called a “carrier” oil (f.ex Vitamin E oil, Argan oil, Jojoba oil etc).

1-2 drops will do as it is quite potent (as all essential oils are).



Rosehip Oil

This one is stocked with vitamins, antioxidants and nourishing fatty acids that do wonders for your skin.

Rosehip oil is derived from the fruit of rose bushes.

It can improve the look and sign of wrinkles, and pigmentation, as it is full of Vitamin A & C, which is great for anti-aging and for hydrating and repairing damaged skin.

Ding, ding, DING!

Also, you’ve probably heard Miranda Kerr go on about how amazing this oil is, well – I agree.



Argan Oil

Last but not least – argan oil.

This one is great for your hair as well.

Tip: use it as a hair treatment overnight and shower it off in the morning.

It includes omega fatty acids and Vitamin E which help reduce dryness and moisturizes well.

Argan oil also has a high content of linoleic acid which fights inflamed skin caused by acne.

This one really soothes and restores damaged skin cells.


Before You Go

There you have it and you are all set to make your own face serum.

You can use it as a moisturizer alone overnight, or as a serum, before you put on your night- or day cream (with SPF!).

Happy DIY’ing!

    I'm Mia! Your new online bestie.

    I’m just like you - an introvert, a dreamer, and someone who just knew she was meant to be creative and free. A girl with a MacBook with thoughts to share. In the last 5 years, I’ve turned my little secret blog into a six figure online business, creating content for a living and entered the cozy vibes and pajamas lifestyle - and life has never been better (or cozier).


    Hey lovely!

    Cozy business vibes forever.

    A safe place for you to grow, start your dream biz and shine online. I'm here, cheering you on like Kirsten Dunst in Bring It On. xoxo Mia
