Perfect for dry skin. Avocado and rose are both super nourishing and hydrating, making this the perfect moisture treatment whilst you sleep. Rose is said to be anti-ageing, so here’s hoping that we wake up having shed a few years as well.
- 6 tablespoons avocado oil
- 1 teaspoon rosehip essential oil
- 2 teaspoons rose water
- 8-10 drops of rose essential oil
- sterilised 100ml bottle
Place all the ingredients in a sterilised small bottle and shake to mix. Keep in a cool, dry place or in the fridge for up to 3 months. To extend the shelf life of this oil further, to about 6 months, add 2 drops of pure vitamin E oil.
To use, wash and dry your face before bed, then put a few generous drops of this oil on your fingertips and rub them together to warm the oil. Apply the warm oil to your face, leaving it to soak in while you sleep.
