How To Get "Unready" With Essential Oils

March 08, 2017

A night out can mean dancing till dawn or swooning over candlelight. Getting ready typically involves mascara, lipstick and maybe a little blush. Hours are spent picking out what to wear and trying different hairstyles. The beginning of a night out is filled with expectations but it’s the end of the night that may have a lasting effect.  

After a night on the town, you may feel tempted to crash into bed but taking a few extra minutes to get “unready” will keep your skin healthy and fresh. Instead of using harsh chemicals to cleanse your skin, we’ve created a step-by-step guide to getting “unready” with essential oils.

    Hi Lynn! This is one of many ways you can use Age Defy. The simplest way would be to dilute it at 1% and apply a small amount morning and night.

    1%= 5-6 drops Age Defy per 2 Tbsp of carrier oil (such as Coconut or olive oil)

    I just received the Age Defy Synergy oil. I thought I could use it right away with perhaps coconut or olive oil. Now I read about all these other thing I need. Are they really necessary to use the oil. I really don’t want to make a religion of it.

    Hi Stephen! We generally recommend a 3% dilution rate.

    3%= 15-18 drops of essential oil per 1 oz of carrier oil

    want to make a massage oil with Argan carrier oil and massage therapy synergy oil
    how many drops of synergy oil to an oz of carrier oil. (I have read 3 drops to 1 oz)

    I am allergic to eggs and can not receive Flu shots. Your fighting four(thieves oil) has protected me from sickness for about 6 years. I gargle with it, couple of drops in my nose rinse, and rub on bottom of feet works wonders. When my friends and coworkers are sick, I am not.

    Hi Fabiana! If you are going to use it on your face, we recommend a 1% dilution rate= 20 drops of Age Defy in 100 ml of carrier oil. If you are going to use it on your body, we recommend a 3% dilution rate= 50 drops of Age Defy in 100 ml of carrier oil.
