Evening Baggy Eyes Solution with Aloe Vera & Rosehip Oil

Baggy eye solution - Dr. Axe

Whether you call them bags under the eyes, puffy eyes or dark circles, they’re probably something you’d rather not wake up to, right? Fortunately, while writing about how to get rid of bags under eyes, I researched and found several facial skin–healing ingredients.

When combined together, you suddenly have a potent, homemade evening baggy eyes solution that will address those puffy eyes in a much more natural fashion that chemical-laden creams.

The first step is combining the lemon and lavender essentials oils, aloe vera gel and rosehip oil in a glass spray bottle — and then shake well. Aloe vera benefits include working as both a skin healer and anti-inflammatory agent, while rosehip oil includes essential fatty acids that help your skin regenerate. Both lavender oil and lemon oil have strong antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.

Before bed, gently cleanse the face and remove all make-up. Spray the baggy eyes solution onto your face, making sure the eyes are closed.

Gently massage the solution under and around your eyes. Allow it to dry. Sleep with your head well supported by quality pillows and wake up to less baggy eyes!

    Hi, I’m just discovering this website and it looks awesome!

    I do have dark circles under my eyes (in fact the color of my skin under my eyes is brown), but i do not have any puffiness at all… Could i simplify this recipe to just have the whitening properties, not the anti-inflammatory ones?

    I made this eye solution, but it’s super goopy & comes out of the spray bottle in large glops. Not at all a “mist”. Is hat how it’s supposed to be??

    • Kim on

      I saw in another recipe on the Dr.Axe site that called for aloe Vera gel to make a mist, where it instructed to heat 2 cups of water on the stove and put the aloe Vera in a glass jar then the oils and then put them in a glass spray bottle. I haven’t tried it yet. It was part of the sunburn relief oils recipe. Hope this helps anyone else.

    I too have dark circles due to the fact that my veins are very close to yhe surface of my skin. I also have rather sunken eyes which makes things even worse. Concealers do nothing. I always look old & tired. Will this be effective for me?

  4. Khadija Fajry on

    That is a nice DIY beauty tip Dr. Josh Axe but we kick it up a notch with more powerful ingredients like organic Argan oil, Prickly Pear Seed Oil, Green coffee bean oil and Lavender oil in our KENZA Pure Eye Serum.
    What do you think of this mixture?

    Dr. axe I use doterr essential oils , however they do not carry rose hip seed oil. Where would you recommend me getting this oil from?

    • Lisa R. on

      I’m sure you can find your rose hip oil @ a Sprouts store. Good luck! And thank you for posting about this eye baggage i sure need ta try this! I am guna try this & ill b posting my results on here too!

    Dear Dr Axe,
    First of all i want to thank you for sharing all the amazing information and tips with us and motivating us for a better health… I have a question about the Evening Baggy Eyes Solution.

    Which Aloe vera gel is the best? I compared couple of brands and I bought Lifeplan`s one, altough it is organic still it has some additives. i could not be sure if all the ingredients are good.

    All the best

    Dr, Axe I also made the evening and morning eye cream, the evening cream cannot be used as a mist it’s to thick, using both am & pm creams I cannot see a difference. what am I missing.

  8. Dee on

    A number of interesting and legitimate comments, however,
    where are the responses to answer the concerns/comments
    – those answers would benefit all . . . I have made it & will now
    begin use – will be sure to post further comment(s)

  9. Sarah on

    Hi, I used Aloe vera in this mix and it makes my skin so tight and dry!! Please can you tell me what is the reason?
    All the ingredients are pure and one of the bests on the market.

    Also about lavender oil, it has this very strong strong smell and even one drop seems to be too much!

    Dr. Axe, seems to be a caring human being with a heart in the right place to provide good suggestions on many home-made medicines. Thank you. jdh

      My sentiments exactly. LOVELY FELLA and extremely knowledgeable on natural medicine and how the human body functions . Easy to follow ( unlike some sources, …)more importantly he never sounds condescending or arrogant ❣
