Reduce fine lines and wrinkles naturally with this DIY Natural Wrinkle Cream. With just a few simple ingredients, your skin can be smooth and soothed!

If you compare a picture of me from today with my high school senior year picture from 19 years ago, you will probably say that I look EXACTLY the same. That is of course true except the fine lines that have crept up around my eyes and mouth with age.  In hopes to stop those wrinkles in their tracks naturally, I made this DIY Wrinkle Cream. Crows feet- YOU DON’T STAND A CHANCE!

Before I dive into the “how to”, I want to explain why this wrinkle cream will be so effective to use.  Here are descriptions of the components in the cream:

Essential Oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants.  An essential oil is obtained by careful steam distillation, but also through cold pressing, of the plant. The purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted because the plant’s properties are so concentrated. The oils in the DIY Wrinkle Cream are:

  • Lavender- Soothes and smooths dry, chapped skin. Great for reducing the signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Lemon- It contains 68 percent d-limonene, a powerful antioxidant that assists in promoting healthy skin. Clears and clarifies.
  • Frankincense- Helps soothe and repair skin, evens out  skin tone, and lightens dark spots.

Carrier oils are used as a base oil to “carry” the other ingredients, and your essential oils, in your creation.  The purpose of the carrier oil is to add moisturizing and soothing properties to your skin, while also protecting it from irritation from certain undiluted essential oils. These carrier oils often have almost no scent at all.  They will not alter the scent of the essential oil that you will use. Some properties of these oils are:

  • Coconut Oil– This is one of the most natural moisturizing and hydrating oils that is known!
  • Sweet Almond Oil – Helps to keep your skin soft and smooth.  It is an anti-inflammatory and powerful anti-oxidant.
  • Shea ButterThis is an all natural vitamin A cream and is an extremely rich moisturizer.

Here’s what you need:

Here’s what you do:

  1. In a double boiler, heat the shea butter and coconut oil until it is melted. Remove from the heat once liquefied.
  2. Add the sweet almond oil and Young Living Essential Oils into the melted mixture and stir to incorporate. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes.  Putting it in the refrigerator works great!
  3.  After cooled, with a mixer or a hand mixer, whip the mixture to the “fluff” consistency of spreadable frosting!
  4. Transfer the whipped mixture to a 4 oz. glass jar.  I use Ball Jar brand because they have wide mouths and are easy to use,  Do not use plastic because the citrus oils can break down the petrochemicals in the plastics and the integrity can be compromised,

To use:

After washing and drying your face, apply a thin layer of the wrinkle cream to your wrinkled parts,  Use in crows feet, smile lines, and forehead creases! You should see results after a few weeks! Naturally!

  1. I love this! We love essential oils at our house, and now I’ll have to work on getting rid of my wrinkles! Thanks for sharing at the Healthy Living Link Party! #HealthyLivingLinkParty

  2. I try many different creams for my face and this is one that I have never used but looks like it would work great! I might just have to order some of these essential oils and make some. It would also make a perfect gift for my mom for Christmas. There’s so much you can do with essential oils that even if I fail at making this I can do something else with them.

    • Thanks for visiting! Please let me know if you want any information about ordering a Young Living Essential Oil kit!!!! I promise you will love them, and your health will too!:)

  4. Hi Tara! What a great recipe. Definitely something I need as I’m in my early 50’s. I’d much prefer to use something natural and homemade. Thank you so much for linking up to Thriving on Thursdays. I’m featuring this post at today’s party. Lovely to see you.

  5. Very cool! I see a lot about essential oils, and I didn’t know you could use them directly on your skin. I definitely want to try this! Pinning, tweeting and stumbling this post! <3

    • Certainly, you know your own skin best, but I think that the amount of lemon oil in the mixture will not be a problem for normal daily use. If you are going to be sunbathing throughout the day, then you can consider skipping the use of the cream during the day if you think your skin will be sensitive. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. That’s a great recipe! I’m all about natural skin care and will definitely have to try this one out! Thank you so much for sharing at Sweet Inspiration #2!

  7. have you tried doubling or tripling this recipe? or do you have to make one batch at a time. Would like to make a lot as gifts.

    • Hi Pat! I have doubled the recipe before and it works really well! So excited you are trying this! 🙂

  8. I really want to try this recipe. My understanding is that essential oils are not to be used with heat because it will minimize their effectiveness. With that in mind would you wait until it is cool but not set yet to reap the most benefits?

    • The heat from your body and the weather won’t effect the properties of the oils in the wrinkle cream. The only effect it will have is that the carrier oils stay softer in the heat, so the cream might be more creamy than fluffy. I hope that makes sense. The heat that will affect the essential oils are when they are “cooked” at hight temperatures like on a stove or the oven! Make the cream, and kiss those wrinkles GOODBYE! 🙂

  9. Hi. There! I just tried making this for my mom with yl oils. I love all the ingredients, however mine isn’t fluffing when I use my hand mixer. Did I do something wrong? How can I recover this?

    • Hi! I am so excited you are making this!!! This happens to me sometimes…. Try putting the mixture in the fridge for about 10 minutes and whip it again. That should do it!!!! Let me know how it turns out!

  10. II have been using this face cream for over a year now I absolutely love it! I have replaced the sweet almond oil with vitamin E and also have tried Rose hip oil and I also use it in the morning and at night and put it all-over my face and neck.
