As the name suggests, Immortelle is one of the best anti-ageing aids out there. If you are looking for an effective face serum, it should have Immortelle! Wondering why?
Immortelle has been used for ages for its anti-ageing properties. We will learn more about each ingredient and why we’re using them after we take a look at the recipe.
Carrier Oil – ¼ Cup
Immortelle Essential Oil – 9 Drops
Rose Essential Oil – 5 Drops
Frankincense Essential Oil – 5 Drops
Lavender Essential Oil – 5 Drops
In a sterilized dark glass bottle, add all the ingredients listed above and shake gently. Let it sit for two days before you start using it.
What Carrier Oil to Use?
Sweet Almond Oil – It is suitable for all skin types, including oily skin. It is light and get absorbed real quick and known for its anti-ageing properties.
Avocado Oil – Ideal if you have very dry, dry or sensitive skin. It is nourishing and moisturizing oil, but also fairly thicker than say Almond Oil.
Olive Oil – Ideal if you have dry skin or normal skin. I don’t recommend if you are acne-prone, as it is known to trigger acne outbreaks.
Argan Oil – Known for its anti-ageing benefits, among other things. It is also light and non-greasy, so ideal if you have oily or acne-prone skin, though it is suitable for all skin types.
Jojoba Oil – Closely resembles skin serum and suitable for all skin types. The best part – even if you have oily or acne-prone skin, you can still use this.
Hazelnut Oil – One of the best oils for its anti-ageing properties and scar removing properties, though it is pricey.
Wheatgerm Oil – Known for its anti-ageing properties, but low on shelf life. So either prepare smaller batches, or add a good dose of Vitamin E Oil.
Rosehip Seed Oil – Same as Wheatgerm Oil, less of shelf life, so you need Vitamin E Oil to keep it from going rancid soon.
Evening Primrose Oil – Another option if you are looking anti-ageing oils, though I always combine this with either Sweet Almond Oil.
Tips to Tweak The Recipe
You can use any of the oils mentioned above, based on your preference, skin type, available, etc. You can also use Olive Oil or other carrier oils like Apricot Kernel Oil – basically, oils that are known for their anti-ageing properties including Coconut Oil.
You can use any Essential Oils that offer Anti-Ageing Benfits including Myrrh, Geranium, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Cypress Oil, Sandalwood Oil, etc.
You can also combine one or more Carrier Oils to get the desired results – I combine Evening Primrose Oil with Sweet Almond Oil, or I add a few drops of Wheat Germ Oil or Rosehip Seed Oil when I prepare smaller batches.
How to Use the Serum?
Cleanse your face, apply your toner and then, apply this Serum. You will need a drop or two for your face and may be a couple of drops more for your neck! Less is more with Serums. I follow-up with a moisturizer.
Why Use This Serum?
This is a fairly light and easy to absorb recipe, a reason I love this serum. It is concentrated, so I have to apply a few drops and it gets absorbed quickly. Also the ingredients protect, nourish, moisturize and heal my skin.
The best part about this serum – ingredients. They work really well to restore, regenerate and rejuvenate the skin, leaving you looking younger and healthier. Isn’t that great? Don’t have time for preparing this DIY Serum recipe? Try Aya Naturals Face Serum for sporting youthful skin.
