One of the wonderful aspects of self-care is that we can all leverage the wonders of nature to feel amazing.

In my search for DIY formulations, I came across the following eye cream recipe. I love the mixture of ingredients, as avocado oil, rose hip oil, and vitamin E are so very nurturing. Top it off with lemon essential oil, and you've got an eye cream that is both amazing for your skin and uplifting for the mind.


  • 4 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons calendula oil
  • 2 teaspoons rose hip oil
  • ½ teaspoon cornstarch or corn flour
  • 2 teaspoons melted beeswax (or 10g/0.3oz)
  • 1 vitamin E capsule
  • 3 drops lemon essential oil


  1. Using a double boiler or a stainless steel bowl sitting in a pan.
  2. Allow the water in the saucepan to boil gently.
  3. Add all the ingredients, except for vitamin E and essential, to the stainless steel bowl (or top of the double boiler) and stir gently, ideally with a whisk, until well and truly melted.
  4. Take off the heat and off the water.
  5. Stir in essential oil and vitamin E.
  6. Pour into sterile jars.
  7. Put the lids on once the cream is set and cool.
