This Homemade Eye Firming Cream is all-natural, easy to make, and actually works! There’s no reason to shell out hundreds of dollars on store-bought creams that may or may not work.
If our eyes are the windows to our soul, mine are telling the world that I’m a tired, old soul. While I’m happy with the life I’ve lead and I intend to age gracefully, I’d like my appearance to align with my perception of myself which is a healthy, vibrant 40-something.
Under-eye bags and dark circles were crushing that image. Since I’ve been on a huge essential oils kick in my effort to reduce the number of chemicals in our home, I decided to put some of them to use to help get rid of those bags under my eyes.
For this homemade eye firming cream, I used several essential oils with anti-aging properties. If you don’t have all of the essential oils, you can simply increase the amount of the other essential oils.
Don’t mess with the quantities or ingredients though when it comes to the other ingredients. They are needed in the amounts listed in order to get the right texture for the cream.
How to Make Homemade Eye Firming Cream
As a mom of 5, I’m way too tired and busy to spend a ton of time or effort on anything. That’s why most of the tips I share on this site are intentionally quick and easy.
The last thing you want to do when making something to wake up your tired eyes is to spend a bunch of time you don’t have on it. Rest assured, you can make this homemade eye firming cream in just a few minutes and with very little effort, just like my other Homemade Beauty Products!
Gather the Supplies
You’ll need a few basic supplies for this homemade eye firming cream:
- 1/4 cup body or shea butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/8 cup beeswax or soy wax
- 1 teaspoon raspberry oil
- 1 teaspoon Neroli oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E oil
- 5-10 drops bergamot essential oil
- 5-10 drops rose essential oil (if you prefer a less expensive alternative, double the amount of geranium oil or substitute rosewood essential oil)
- 5-10 drops geranium essential oil
- 5-10 drops lavender essential oil
- Small cosmetic containers
Step 1 – Melt the Wax
Combine the shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax in a small microwave-safe bowl.
Place the bowl in the microwave and set the time for 30 seconds. Stir and continue heating in 30-second intervals until everything is melted.
Step 2 – Add Oils
Next, add the Vitamin E oil.
Then, the neroli oil.
Then, raspberry oil.
And finally, the essential oils.
Whisk all of the oils together.
Step 3 – Add to Containers
Now, you just need to add the mixture to the cosmetic containers. Use a dropper to avoid spills and fill to 3/4 full.
Let the mixture solidify overnight. Then, your homemade eye firming cream will be ready to use!
To Use: Using your ring finger, dab a small amount under and around your eye (where crows’ feet appear) and gently massage into the skin. Apply two times a day (morning and evening) for optimal results.
