Ever since Our Ella Joy was born my sleep schedule has been basically switched to collecting precious moments of rest in 3 or maybe 4 hour increments. The day Ella was born I labored for over 24 hours without sleep. Obviously, my body is a bit sleep deprived and the long-term issues are resulting in dark circles under my eyes.




You can find several home remedies for dark circles on heathline.com! My DIY solution was to create a homemade eye serum using supplies I already had at home.


I always recommend checking your cabinets and using whatever resources you have available before buying new. I use Lemon Essential Oil to remove the labels off of my old oil bottles and repurpose them for DIY projects. I did order some blank labels on Amazon to add to the repurposed bottles, but you could also use tape for labeling.





Now you are ready to make your DIY Eye Serum!


Here's what you need:

-Cypress Essential Oil

-Frankincense Essential Oil

-Copaiba Essential Oil

-Carrier Oil (Grapeseed, Fractionated Coconut or Jojoba)

-Essential Oil Roller (or repurposed bottle)


Step 1: Add your carrier oil to the bottle first. Fill the bottle about 3/4 of the way full. I used Grapeseed Oil for my DIY Eye Serum.


According to medicalnewstoday.com, Grapeseed Oil is high in omega-6 fatty acids and is a great addition to maintaining healthy hair and skin.


Grapeseed Oil is usually more affordable and can be found in almost any grocery store.


Step 2: Add 10 drops of Cypress Essential Oil, 5 drops Copaiba Essential Oil and 5 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil.

This particular essential oil blend will support the reduction of puffiness and inflammation under your eyes.


Step 3: Top off the remainder with more carrier oil (optional).
