Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I do not have many wrinkles at age 33, but I have definitely lost elasticity in my face, which you can see around my mouth and eyes. My skin texture also has looked kind of leathery in the past 2 years.

I have been using a 1.5-ounce bottle of jojoba oil mixed with 1-2 drops each of Lemon, Frankincense, and Carrot Seed essential oils. This definitely makes my face look dewy but not greasy, and it is cheaper than buying moisturizer in stores.

Carrot Seed oil can be used as a natural sunscreen, which is why I included that also. I use my mixture as my day moisturizer. Lemon essential oil can cause photosensitivity, so I have just been testing out if the Carrot Seed essential oil can counter that.

When I have pimples on my face, I find that they are gone much quicker since using my oil mixture. I used to have a lot of acne, and Lemon essential oil helped to remove all the scars along my jaw.

I liked how my face was looking. However, I felt that I could look younger and that my skin could gain some more elasticity, so I bought Rose essential oil. My mom and I split a bottle of the Rose oil since it is very expensive. I knew it was a good investment for skincare. Only a drop or two is needed with my jojoba carrier oil.

It has just been a week, but it cannot just be a coincidence that the lines around my mouth have lessened, and my skin texture does not look leathery anymore.

My mother usually takes my advice when it comes to skincare, except for putting on sunscreen every day, which I am sure is why she has a lot more wrinkles than her sister who is the same age.

So I put one drop of Rose essential oil in her Aveeno night cream.

A week later she stopped me and said, "My forehead wrinkles are gone!"

These are the furrows or frown lines (glabella) right above and between her eyebrows.

How exciting is that!
