  • Author: Dr. Josh Axe
  • Total Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 40 applications 1x


To help achieve the best results and to avoid toxic chemicals found in most commercial products, consider making a homemade eye cream. This DIY recipe includes four of the best ingredients for the delicate skin under the eyes.


  • 2 tablespoons unrefined shea butter
  • 2 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon vitamin E
  • 10 drops frankincense essential oil


  1. Put shea butter and coconut oil in a small glass bowl, then place that bowl in a sauce pan that is filled with water. Do not allow any water to get into the bowl.
  2. Place pan (and bowl) on a stovetop and heat to medium and mix oils together. Whisk until completely melted.
  3. Remove the glass bowl from the stove and let it cool for 30 minutes. Add the vitamin E oil and essential oil and whisk again.
  4. Once mixed, put in refrigerator for an hour or until solid.
  5. Remove from the fridge. With a regular mixer or hand mixer, beat the oils until they are whipped and fluffy.
  6. Fill a glass container with eye cream mixture and store at room temperature.
  7. Apply every morning and night around the eyes, after taking a shower or bath or at least washing your face, when your skin is still wet. Enjoy!
