Age defiance serums are generally classed as treatments rather than moisturizers and this is one heck of a treatment. It’s a home remedy that helps prevent wrinkles and keeps for a year, its packed full of natural ingredients and feels divine!

Yes, it is a little pricey to make, certainly more than my homemade wrinkle cream and some of the other skin care recipes but it’s better than shop-bought and you will only need a few drops of this treatment.

The quantities below 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.

The vitamin E in this recipe is Vitamin ET-50 Mixed Tocopherol oil, it’s a 50% mix, which is slightly cheaper than the 95% oil.

The organic Rosemary Antioxidant CO2 Extract is the best choice for a natural preservation in your skincare products. It’s guaranteed to contain healthy quantities of the key ingredient Rosmarinic acid which makes this recipe keep for up to a year.

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 essential oil is very expensive so you may want to consider using Geranium or Rosewood as a substitute; all are good for cell regeneration.


  1. Combine all the oils together and store in a cool dark place.
  2. If using essential oils you will need to store this serum in a Glass, PET plastic or aluminum lined bottle
  3. Shake before use. Massage a few drops into skin until absorbed, use once per day before applying a homemade moisturizer.

  1. Hello
    I would like to make a super serum for my mom, who has 75 years. It has a deep wrinkle for years. Which serum do you recommend to make her lose her temper? Thanks and nice regards, Karmen

  2. Since rose oil is so expensive, I’m wondering if infusing one of these oils with dried rose petals would give a little boost?
