Essential Oil For Dark Circles

Our Favorite Oils To Combat Dark Circles

Dark circles under the eyes are privacy breakers. They tell people you stayed up late watching TV, have a sleepless child or are more stressed than you’d care to admit. Luckily, you can stop people from asking the dreaded question, “Are you tired?” The answer is revitalizing oils. A quick application of these nourishing oils will sweep away dark circles and bags in no time, leaving your skin bright and beautiful.

Avocado: Richly nourishing andanti-inflammatory, Avocado oil is a great choice for brightening and toning under your eyes. This skin-loving carrier oil is also aprime pick for mature, damaged skin, as it’s abundant in oleic acid.

Evening Primrose: If the dark circles under your eyes arecaused by dermatitis or a similar skin condition,Evening Primrose is the way to go. High in linoleic acid, Evening Primrose’s skin-regenerative properties help to reduce the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles and damaged skin.

Grapeseed: Another oil that ishigh in linoleic acid and supportive to the skin is Grapeseed. Its anti-inflammatory uses and skin-softening ability assist in reducing under-eye puffiness while reducing dark circles.

Rosehip: One oil that has continually proven its effectiveness inimproving the appearance of skin, is Rosehip oil. Boost your skincare routine by swiping Rosehip oil below your eyes — both morning and night — to prevent dark circles from cropping up.

Coffee: We used to think we couldn’t love Coffee anymore than we already did — that is, until we realized it had the potential to reduce dark circles and refine skin. In fact,the same constituent which allows us to function in the morning is also an active ingredient in a growing number of cosmetics: caffeine!

Frankincense: Frankincense essential oil is known for its abundance of beneficial properties, but today we want to show some appreciation for its applications towards skincare. From reducing puffiness to restoring skin to equilibrium, Frankincense is the catalyst you need to restore skin to a healthy, happy state.

Note: If using essential oils under the eyes, dilute to .5% and use up to three times per week.

After reading this, I made a Coffee-Frankincense-Grapeseed oil rollerball that has become my favorite part of my evening routine!

I have also freshly ground a very dark roast coffee and placed it in the foot of newly purchased pantyhose and tied it off. I then placed it in a mason jar and poured my choice of carrier oil (Rosehip Seed Oil) over it until covered, and allowed to infuse for approx 10-14 days. This allows the caffeine to infuse into the oil and I’ve found it very effective for my dark circles. I’m going to add .5% frankincense sacra to this and hopefully it will become my holy grail eye serum!

Hi Tara! You would dilute them to .5% in a carrier oil or unscented lotion.

.5% = 3 drops of essential oil in 1 oz of carrier

This is wonderful! If I wanted to use some of these oils for my undereye, how would I go applying them? A carrier oil? Or directly?

I’m a newbie. :)
