    Hi Dr. Axe,
    Where can I find good quality rose hip oil? Thanks!!!

  2. Cici says:

    Should this solution be limited to only the under eye area or would it be good for the entire face?

    I currently use rose hip oil on my face but am excited to try your mix for the under eyes!

  3. Kitty says:

    Where do you recommend purchasing Rosehip seed oil?

    • Anissia Balistreri says:

      Kitty, I work for a company called Melaleuca, we have essential oils at lower prices than other companies with pure quality. My name is Anissia Balistreri, you can find me on face book

    • Dawn says:

      You can make your own (in small amounts) by buying rosehip seeds. Put the seeds in a jar with coconut oil and place in the sun (on window sill is fine) for a couple of days, strain, then use as needed. I use Leucidal Liquid which is a natural alternative to synthetic Preservativesfor aything I make for my face. .2% Leucidal Liquid in a your base is able to inhibit microbial growth the instruction says.

  4. Lisa says:

    I do not see rosehip seed oil in the brands I prefer on amazon. What brand would you recommend for the rosehip seed oil as well as the aloe vera gel?

    • Cathy says:

      I found all the ingredients for this mixture on Vitacost.com. I always shop there!

  5. Donna says:

    Though I worry more about Why I have dark circles and under eye puffs, I have to reiterate the question of where to purchase the rose oil?

  6. Michele says:

    It is my understanding that lemon essential oil is photosensitive. Is it, therefore, safe to use on the face which is exposed to the sun? I have seen other recipes calling for lemon essential oil to be used on the skin and I am quite hesitant to do so.

    • Jamie says:

      Lemon essential oil is only phototoxic in amounts greater than 2%. This is also being applied at night, so a safe amount of time will pass before you’re out in sunlight again the next day.

  7. Stella says:

    Hi just a of questions. So we don’t use moisturizer on our face after or before we spray. Just the spray.
    Thank you

  8. Connie says:

    Where to buy organic or the purest of oils

  9. Loretta says:

    I recommend Young Living Oil for the purest. The only one that has the seed to seal guaranty. I have been using them for almost a year and love them. Be carful on cheap synthetic oils.

  10. Rob says:

    My mother has dark patches under her eyes intermittently is this a specific illness indicator? What can cause darkness under the eyes other than sleep problems and will this product help?

    • Mary says:

      I’ve read puffy & dark circles could be your liver needs detoxing. Also, I take 1 to 2 tsp of raw honey before bed. It helps me sleep.

  11. Kelly says:

    doTerra has the highest quality essential oils available. doTerra is the industry leader in essential oils for a reason…they are the highest quality oils available. I sell doTerra and would be happy to send you some information. You can find me on Facebook Kelly Reinhardt-Enyart

  12. Maria says:

    Is there a substitute for Aloe Vera? I’m allergic to Aloe Vera! 😫 Can I use coconut oil instead?

    • Dawn says:

      I would use coconut oil or hemp oil. They say that the hemp oil does not clog your pores, while coconut is higher on the scale than hemp. Both have anti-bacterial properties.

  13. Mark Webb says:

    Rose hip oil is an essential fatty acid which without proper antioxidants will go rancid rapidly. The essential oils choosen are not rich in antioxidant value, they will however oxidise due to their high terpene content forming peroxides & other irritant breakdown products if not handled properly. There are no emulsifiers in this formula to dispers the lipids into the aloe vera gel (dont be tempted to scrape gel from an aloe leaf as that will grow mold in no time). As for the concentration 15 drops equals 900mg EO in 1 oz which is approx 30mls so thats a 27% concentration solution.. Hmm in clinical aromatherapy we use dosing like that for high dose topical applications, not around sensitive areas such as the eyes. This is unfortunately a formulation which will cause a whole lot of pain if used be careful and seek appropriate knowledge resources from within the industry.

  14. Pamela says:

    Mark what emulsifier should be used and what do you think would be a better safer amount of drops for the essential oils?

  15. Sylvia says:

    Lemon Oil is photo-sensitive to the skin and therefore as an Integrated Aromatic Sciences practitioner, I cannot recommend Lemon oil on the face.

  16. Sylvia says:

    As well, many people are sensitive to honey and coconut oil. As an Integrated Aromatic Sciences Practitioner, I make all my clients very aware that it is not a one size fits all. What works for one, may not work for another. Self discovery is the best and you become your own best judge of what works for you or not. In my practice, the client and i work very closely together to discover the whys and why nots for each client individually.
    My clients are very aware of my motto which is as follows:
    “I don’t sell stuff. I offer hope, health, excitement and freedom. I lock arms with people who want to do the same and have fun doing it. Feel free to connect with me.

  17. JanB says:

    I made this serum and it feels so great around my eye area. I use Young Living and Mountain Rose Herb EO’s. MRH has so many products for making diy recipes and the prices are good and all of the products I’ve discovered are great so far.

  18. JanB says:

    I just read Mark’s comment after making my serum. I found on Rose Mountain Herb site that they have a Lecithin product which is made from soy. It says that it can be an emulsifier and stabilizer for making body care products and is also used in baking. It is a bit pricey and I don’t know how much to use, but you can use it for multiple purposes. I’m going to get some and will post a comment on what I find.

  19. Kathy says:

    Will the aloe vera gel be too thick to
    spray or do the oils thin it enough for it not to be a problem? Can’t wait to try this…thanks so much for all the wonderful info!

    • Dawn says:

      This blend is a little thick using the aloe vera. I use a small roll on bottle for ease of application and it works great.

  20. Beverly says:

    i NEED SOME GUIDANCE/DIRECTION. i AM STARTING TO GET DEEP BLACK HEADS IN MY SKIN (FACE PREDOMINANTLY) AND THEY LEAVE LIKE A HOLE IN MY SKIN–AFTER CLEANSING, IN A COUPLE DAY, THEY FILL AGAIN. iS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE THAT CAN TELL ME WHY THIS OCCURS AND, WHAT I NEED TO DO ABOUT IT.

  21. Justin says:
