Its soothing qualities help replenish the skin, while also preventing the skin from revealing signs of damage and wrinkles. Evening Primrose has a very faint aroma with light notes of sweetness.

Hi Melissa! Try Age Defy synergy blend. This blend is great for crepey skin and it also comes in a conveniently prediluted roll-on.

My hands are getting quite a few age spots and are starting to look “crepey”. What would you recommend?

Hi Leann! Add .11 ml of each carrier oil to your .33 ml roll-on and 1 drop each of Frankincense and Patchouli, if using it on the face, or 3 drops each if using it on the body.

I recently purchased the set above to help with my highly sensitive dry skin on my face. I was hoping that you could provide a recipe for me to use with .33 fl oz roll-on bottles. I have one recipe that calls for 1 oz of carrier oil plus 3 drops of Frankincense plus 3 drops Patchouli.

Hi Barbara! Evening Primrose, Jojoba and Grapeseed are carrier oils. Frankincense carterii and Patchouli are essential oils. A carrier oils is needed to dilute the essential oils. I would suggest the following mixture using some of the above recommendations –

1 oz Jojoba, Evening Primrose or Grapeseed
3 drops Frankincense
3 drops Patchouli

Combine the above mixture, transfer to a container and apply to dry, itchy skin.

I have dry, flaky, itchy skin that is driving me crazy! Also, have rosacea. Under the section 5 Essential and Carrier Oils, are they all carrier oils? Do I have to have a carrier oil or will I be able to use an essential oil as a carrier oil??? There are some items in my cart, but hesitate to place the order until I understand the difference. Perhaps you could view the cart and tell me if I’ve made the right selections for my problem. Thanks for your help.

I’m thinking due to the taking of hormone replacement that my really oily skin & breakouts are caused by them. Can you recommend any of your oils that can combat some of the oiliness?

Great! You tell me many Organic Essential oils that are really helpful for our health and skin. Thanks for sharing such useful information.

Hi Jenny! We’d recommend using quick absorbing, non-greasy carrier oils like Jojoba, Apricot Kernel, Camellia Seed and Sesame. These oils have a “dry” feel, in that they absorb quickly and have a satiny finish.

Love reading this. Researching now, knowing there are many products on the market for creams to combat wrinkles/fine lines and skin issues. I really don’t want to have to expense into skincare products, hence this is more intriguing. Question though, you mention under Jojoba Oil that that oil works well in balancing your skin type whether oily or dry. I have oily t-zone. Would any of the carrier oils work well or should I stay with Jojoba Oil? I have been currently using Argon oil with your Age Defying, and not sure if that seems to keep my t-zone oily or not. Want to find something to combat wrinkles (especially on my forehead), yet not become oily throughout the day. Thank you.

Hi Mila! For skincare, we’d recommend Rosemary Moroccan.

I need rosemary essential oil as part of the formula to restore my anosmia (loss of sense of smell).
Which Rosemary should I buy and use in the formula?

What carrier oil would you recommend for around the eyes? I have puffy lids and dark circles underneath, as well as fine lines.
