DIY: Make Your Own Moisturizing Face Serum


  • 1 x 1oz. Glass Dropper Bottle


  • 20 Drops Frankincense Essential Oil*

  • 4 Drops Lavender Essential Oil*

  • 3 Drops Tea Tree Essential Oil*

  • 2 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil*

  • 0-2 Drops German Chamomile Essential Oil*

  • 1oz. Organic Apricot Kernel Oil*

* Use only therapeutic-grade essential oils from a transparent, trusted supplier, like Young Living. See the Get Started page for details on how to get a Young Living membership and personalized support from HARDWIRED.


  1. Drop the essential oils into the empty glass dropper bottle one at a time. The German Chamomile is very thick, which makes it a great addition for colder, drier weather. Living in the northeast, I recommend using 2 drops of German Chamomile for a winter batch and 0-1 drop in the warmer seasons. If you don't like the scent of German Chamomile, Myrrh is an excellent substitute. Everyone's skin acts differently, so you may want to experiment by starting with none and adding a drop later to see the difference.

  2. Fill the remainder of the bottle with the Organic Apricot Kernel Oil, making sure to leave a little space at the top so the dropper can be inserted without the mixture spilling over.

  3. Insert the dropper and screw it on.

  4. Give the blend a light shake for a bit and then let it sit for a couple of hours to really let it mix together.

  5. Wash your face.

  6. Apply a good toner like the ART® Refreshing Toner and let it set in for about a minute.

  7. Use about 4-6 drops of the serum (depending on the size of your face) by gently rubbing it into your face either with your bare (recently cleaned) hands or with a cotton ball/pad. Personally, I prefer to use my hands so that I'm not absorbing and throwing out the natural or essential oils from my face.

Remember, your skin needs oil-based moisture. With this recipe, I find my skin stays in balance and no other type of moisturizer is necessary.
