Using Essential oils to take care of your eyes

Essential oils are for so much more than just smelling nice!  Did you know you can use them to support just about every part of your body?  With just a few basic oils and some pretty containers (we love our bottles here at Silver Orange Boutique!) anyone can create blends to pamper those peepers! 

It’s important to take care of our eyes, encourage healthy habits and keep them twinkling! Try these recipes to do just that!

 Under Eye Serum

The skin around our eyes is one of the first places on your face to show lines and wrinkles. The skin is thin and easily creases, which is why those lines show up so easily! This recipe can help combat this by nourishing the thin skin under the eyes, and helping to firm and tone it.

Start with an empty 10ml roller bottle.  Here's what else you’ll need:

roller bottle with bamboo cap and organic botanicals for eye serum

3 drops lavender eo

2 drops lemon eo

2 drops geranium eo

Add all drops to the bottle and top off remainder with argan oil.


Now here's the why!

Lavender is great for so many things, including soothing and smoothing your skin!
Lemon can lighten and add radiance to your skin (ever try it in your hair for natural highlights?)
Rosemary has anti-inflammatory properties and promotes blood circulation!
Geranium can help diminish under-eye puffiness and boosts collagen production!
Argan Oil is rich with antioxidants, fatty acids and Vitamin E. That's why it's my choice for a carrier oil under my eyes, but you can pick your preference!


Lash Serum

A lash serum can be a great way to thicken your lashes!

You could try an over-the counter product, but have you looked at what's in them? I picked one up at the cosmetic counter a few months back and couldn't believe the amount of ingredients. And some were less than desirable to be placing near my eyes, with known toxic ingredients!  NO THANK YOU!

bamboo mascara tube bottle for lash serum

Try this recipe if you're looking for something to nourish and thicken your lashes.  

Start with an empty mascara tube and add:

2 drops Cedarwood eo
2 drops Rosemary eo
2 drops Lavender eo

Top bottle off with castor oil

That's it - easy does it! These 3 essential oils (Cedarwood, Rosemary & Lavender) not only smell amazing, but also they help promote strong, healthy hair growth! And that includes your lashes. Castor oil is also a natural oil that helps promote strong and healthy hair!




Sleepy Pillow Mist

Have you started making your own room sprays yet? While I love my roll-ons, a spritzer is great for a sleepy spray. It's super handy, versatile & another amazing way to use (and enjoy) your essential oils.

Sleepy Spray (or Pillow mist) is my favorite one to start with. It's soothing lavender scent can help induce sleepiness in even the most stubbornly wide-awake child!😝🤣 And let's not forget ourselves! Ever have a night when you just can't get that brain to "turn off" and get those ZZZs?!
bamboo lavender spritzer bottle

Mix up this recipe for a 50ml bottle:

15-20 drops lavender

12 ml of high-proof alcohol (like Everclear 190 proof)


Add your essential oils and the high-proof alcohol to the bottle.  Fill the remainder with water. Shake and spray! Spritz on your blankets, pillows I stuffed animals.  Sweet Dreams!

Optional: Add some organic lavender buds to the bottle to infuse an extra layer of goodness and beauty!

Feel free to add another 10-15 drops of eos that you like with lavender. Some good ones to consider are: cedarwood, vetiver, chamomile, bergamot, ylang-ylang and valerian. Give one (or 2 a try!)


Eye-Makeup Remover

This one is so simple, everyone should have it in their skin care arsenal!

All you need is:

a bottle (I love using a dropper bottle with a cotton pad)

5 drops lavender eo

Non-fractionated coconut oil

Simply add the oils to the bottle, swirl around and and you’ve got a simple, natural and effective eye-Makeup remover!
