In a 25 to 50 ML glass serum bottle or dropper bottle, add the following (see links above):
1 ounce Apricot Kernel oil
1/2 teaspoon Jojoba oil
1/4 teaspoon pure Vitamin E skin oil
1 drop pure food grade Vegetable Glycerine
ADD THE FOLLOWING PRECIOUS Young Living Essential Oils TO THE ABOVE D.I.Y. BASE: (Note: You can start at the top of this list of anti-aging and protective essential oils – add the ones you have, and skip the ones you don’t until you acquire them…they may always be added later, and your bottle topped up with the D.I.Y. base.)
20 drops Young Living Therapeutic Grade Myrrh essential oil
10 drops YLTG Frankincense essential oil
10 drops YLTG Palmarosa essential oil
10 drops YLTG Carrot Seed essential oil (How to tell the difference between ‘Carrot Oil’ and ‘Carrot Seed Essential Oil’…The essential oil is generally sold in 5 ml bottles.)
5 drops each YLTG Balsam Fir EO, Cypress EO, Lavender EO, Geranium EO, Ocotea EO, and Roman Chamomile EO.
3 drops each YLTG Lemongrass EO, and Fennel EO
1 drop YLTG Patchouli essential oil
You can totally customize* which YLTG essential oils you choose to add to a glorious D.I.Y. Skin Serum such as this!
…And once you have ingredients for a beautiful base, you will be able to make many many batches. Some people use sweet almond oil and apricot kernel oil. I personally prefer apricot kernel oil over sweet almond as it seems to last longer if i don’t use it all up right away…
The first time I made the serum it contained less than half of the essential oils listed. It has evolved over time into the ‘Golden Dewdrop Serum’, and become a favourite part of morning & evening routine
