The BEST Homemade Firming Eye Cream


  • cup organic coconut oil
  • 6-8 vitamin E capsules
  • Frankincense Essential Oil
  • Rose Essential Oil


  • Using a small microwavable bowl add in cup coconut oil and heat in intervals of 15-20 seconds until completely melted
  • Poke holes into your Vitamin E capsules and squeeze vitamin liquid into your oil while stirring
  • Add in teaspoon of Rose essential oil and 10 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
  • Pour the mixture into a small glass container and put into the refrigerator for about 1 hour or until the liquid returns to solid form. After it turns to a solid, there is no need to keep it refrigerated. The oils will not become rancid.
  • Use a small amount at nighttime, under your eyes and prepare to look refreshed! You can also use before you apply makeup. Just give it 10 minutes or so to soak into your skin before applying makeup.
  • Enjoy!

  1. I noticed in the photo of ingredients it showed rosehip oil. This is different than Rose essential oil. Which oil was actually used?

    • Rosehip oil is known for its anti aging properties. Rose essential oil has some of the same properties but not as many for the same amount of hosehip oil. If you are going for anti ageing use the rosehip oil.


    • The jar used in the picture is called a quarter-pint canning jar. You can find them with the canning supplies in most big box stores. Most stores sell them as a flat of 24 jars and only around the holidays. If you only need one container check around etsy for a pretty 4oz jar.

  3. Did you use a CUP of coconut oil? Did all that fit into a quarter pint jar?
