I always skipped over anything that said, “anti-aging.” Anti-aging is only for old people, not me. But then I realized I am 30, I am not a young chicken anymore, though I feel like I am. And prevention is the best thing!
As we age our body produces less collagen, in fact, this starts happening at age 21. Lack of collagen is the main culprit for aging because collagen increases skin elasticity and hydration. Several oils help the body to produce more collagen, therefore, making them excellent for anti-aging, wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.

DIY FACIAL SERUM WITH BEST ESSENTIAL OILS FOR ANTI-AGING
First, pick your carrier oil…
- Fractioned Coconut Oil– FCO is my favorite carrier oil because it is a very light oil and has many health benefits. FCO is different from regular coconut oil because it stays liquid. It prevents oxidation making it effective for extending the shelf life of your essential oils.
- Grape Seed Oil– This oil is popular in the culinary world and a very popular carrier oil for essential oil users. GSO is a favorite carrier oil because of its light texture, leaves little residue on the skin, and has wound healing properties.
- Avocado Oil– Studies describe avocado oil as a superfood and the best option for oil to use while cooking. It is very hydrating and an excellent moisturizer for dry skin. However, avocado oil is very “oily” and thick so it will leave behind a thicker residue than some of the other options.
- Jojoba Oil– Jojoba oil has a mild smell so when it is mixed with essential oils you will smell the essential oil over the jojoba oil. I find that jojoba oil doesn’t stain clothes like other oils can making it a good carrier oil option, especially for kids. Jojoba penetrates the skin well and is a great option for anyone with ultra-sensitive skin.
- Sweet Almond Oil– This oil has a slightly sweet and nutty aroma. It has a medium consistency and known for its moisturizing properties. This oil can cause skin irritation to anyone with a nut allergy.
- Olive Oil– Olive oil is my least favorite out of all the carrier oils for two main reasons, smell and texture. Olive oil has a very distinct smell that tastes fabulous on chicken and in salad dressing but I don’t prefer the scent on my skin. It is also a very thick oil leaving behind an oily film. On the flip side, olive oil is high in antioxidants and very healing to dry patchy skin.
Next, pick your favorite essential oils for anti-aging…
