Botox in a Bottle: Glow Serum

June 5, 2023

I once heard a woman in her 60’s say that her skin looked better than most of her friends’ who had facelifts. Her secret? The beloved Glow Serum.

This glow serum recipe is the perfect blend to make your skin look vibrant, youthful, buoyant and be soft to the touch. I’ve personally been using it for several years and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made for my skin.

The glow serum is a simple addition to your beauty cabinet and an easy swap in your daily routine. You’ll use it twice a day, after rinsing your face in the morning, before you apply your makeup, and then you’ll use it again after you wash your face in the evening – the perfect way to prep your skin for a days worth of work and the best way to prep your skin for a nights worth of sweet sleep!

The ingredients are simple: Frankincense, Lavender, Geranium, Blue Tansy (for the morning serum) and Jojoba Oil.

Morning Serum:

To make, grab a 2oz glass dropper bottle. Put 15 drops of Frankincense, 5 drops of Lavender, 5 drops of Geranium and 3 drops of Blue Tansy, then top it off with Jojoba Oil.

Evening Serum:

To make, grab a 2oz glass dropper bottle. Put 15 drops of Frankincense, 5 drops of Lavender and 5 drops of Geranium and top the bottle off with Jojoba Oil.

Meet the Oils:

Frankincense. If I were to only use one oil for the rest of my life, it would be Frank. It’s the best and my favorite oil for sleep, skin, hair support, calming, emotions, anointing and nurturing. It will make your skin glowy. I use this oil multiple times each day, topically and in the diffuser.

Lavender. The “holy grail” of oils. It’s also known as the “swiss army knife” and the “grandmother of oils”. If you blindly grabbed any oil, hope you grab Lavender. It’s useful for any sickness and ailments. It helps to make your skin soft and will smooth any lines.

Geranium. Because of this oil you will smell like you’re sleeping in a bed of flowers. It helps make your skin healthy and youthful.

Blue Tansy is the key ingredient, it’s a boujie oil but one that is a must-have for beauty recipes! It only goes in the morning serum because it can have a tendency to give your brain a little boost of energy, hence the desire to put it in the morning recipe versus the evening. This oil has skin-cleansing and smoothing properties, it will help to moisturize and reduce blemishes.

Jojoba Oil. Whenever you’re making an oil recipe that will be used in a dropper bottle or roller bottle you need a carrier oil. Jojoba is one of my favorites because it doesn’t clog your pores and doesn’t have a smell, making it perfect for a skincare recipe! You can buy it at any natural grocery store or online.

Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think! Something fun to do would be to take before and after pictures of your skin. Take one the day you begin using it and then set a reminder to take another picture 4 months later!

Enjoy, I’m excited to see your skin glow!
