Frankincense Frereana is highly prized for its ability to help smooth the appearance of wrinkles, scars, dry and damaged skin. Carrot Seed is another incredible essential oil that softens and smooths your skin.

  1. What?! This sounds great! I’m looking forward to using this once I’m done with my currenr face oil. I don’t want to try too many new things at once, hehe.

  2. This looks like a great, nourishing base. I normally just use olive oil in my facial serums. Will have to try this combination. Would it be alright to add helichrysum and blue tansy?

    1. I’m curious about this as well! I just purchased the younger glo carrier oil and was going to mix anti-age with that. I wonder if this serum would be the better option? Hmm…

  3. I purchased meadowfoam recently and jojoba is one of my favorites. I’m excited to give this a try! I’ll bet the ylang ylang brings a nice balance and brightness to the earthiness of the carrot seed and frankincense

  4. this sounds amazing! I really need this after moving back east from the less dry climate of the Pacific Northwest. I can tell I’ve aged more in the last year than the previous 5 years hah

  5. oh this sounds devine, I am going to have to make a small jar of it and multiply the amounts by 5. and use prior to bedtime

  6. Great recipe, thank you, PT! Now I absolutely have to get my hands on Meadowfoam carrier oil, and I’m so happy you carry it!

  7. I made this (without Carrot Seed, don’t have it) and used it this morning! Ylang Ylang is such a lovely smell! I’m hoping this will help my aging skin!

  8. As soon as I’m ready to buy more oils I’m making this. I have been looking for a DIY face serum to incorporate frankincense into my regimen. Thank you!

  9. Wow, I need a few of the ingredients and then I plan to try this. Thanks for always having such awesome blogs!

  10. I have been looking for a new serum recipe. I fully trust Plant Therapy’s blog posts and have no reservations about spending on ingredients for recipes is see here. Love that we can just add everything to the cart right from the blog. Of course, then in your cart you can remove anything you already have.

  11. Sounds like an effective synergy. Is there any oil with similar qualities to the carrot seed? I just really don’t like it’s strong aroma. Thank you!

  12. This sounds amazing. I love the smell of ylang ylang plus the benefits of frank makes this the perfect blend for me. Thank you for posting this.

  13. This sounds great! I only have Frankincense carterii. I bought that thinking it was the one that was good for skin I guess I got the wrong one. Would I still get the same benefits from it?

  14. Thanks for this recipe. I received my first order of EO in November and have been using them for skin care ever since. I get great results on my mature skin!

  15. Could do you use sea fennel instead of carrot seed? And younger glow instead of the meadowfoam carrier oil? I guess I would be totally rebuilding this LOL though I do have the frankincense as well as the ylang ylang.

  16. Love this! I have been using Frereana and carrot seed for some time but have not thought to use ylang ylang. I will have to add this to my regimen! Thanks!!

  17. My current face serum is jojoba oil, lavender, and frankincense. I’m excited to try this combo. Jojoba is my absolute favorite oil for my face.

  18. Sounds like a great one to add to my face serum rotation. I may seek a substitute for the Ylang Ylang though. Hopefully I can find a suitable substitute for it. Thanks for another great recipe!
