Age defiance serums are generally classed as treatments rather than moisturizers and this is one heck of a treatment. It’s a homemade anti wrinkle serum that last for a year, is packed full of anti ageing ingredients and feels divine!

Yes, it is a little pricey to make, but it’s better than shop bought and you will only need a few drops of this treatment. The quantities bellow are for 100 ml which is around 3 .3 oz which is a fair amount for a single serum, so feel free to reduce the quantities to suit your usage.

I haven’t given a specific essential oil because I think it’s important to choose one that you like the smell of, and to be honest the carrier oils here are so good that adding an essential oil is fairly optional.

However if you want to go the whole hog (which I usually do) you may want to consider one of the following, Clary Sage, Frankincense, Myrrh, Neroli or Rose. Rose is very expensive so you may want to consider using geranium or rosewood as a substitute; all are good for cell regeneration.
