Hello my lovelies!
Who has heard of “glow serum”? Do you already use a store bought brand? Or are you looking to add a new ~fun~ step to your skincare routine?
DIY skin care is so fun – I love replacing some of my store-bought (chemical-filled) products with a healthier, cleaner option. I’ve also replaced my face cleaner!
Glow serum should be applied on clean skin and is meant to nourish the skin and literally allow it to glow. It should balance your skin’s pH levels and reveal a healthier, more even skin tone. And who couldn’t use more of that?

There are LITERALLY a million options for glow serum in stores and on the web. But not all of them are truly healthy options. Just check out how “dirty” some of the top selling glow serum options can be. Yuck!
If there is one thing I am doing in 2019, it’s eliminating more toxic products from my skincare routine. Young Living has great options for skincare and today, I’m going to be using some of their 100% pure therapeutic oils to create a 100% toxin-free glow serum!
So, who wants the secret ingredients to this luminous skin potion?
All you need is a super cute bottle, carrier oil and a few essential oils.
There are a few different options above and I’m going to explain what carrier oil you might need and what essential oils to use!
Which carrier oil to use for glow serum?
Jojoba oil: My personal favorite! Jojoba oil is non greasy – win! And it doesn’t clog pores so it works well as a clean and healthy option.
Coconut oil: Coconut oil is light and inexpensive compare to a few others but it might clog pores. Let’s save coconut oil for the roller bottle blends.
Vegetable oil: Let’s just not. Even though it may seem super convenient.
Grapeseed oil: This might be a great option for you as it works well on many different skin types! It’s a great source of Vitamin E, too.
Almond oil: The thicker oil of the group could be too much for some of you. It soothes dry skin but is very oily. The fatty acids help retain moisture in the skin so this is for my friends with very dry skin.
Olive oil: Keep it in the kitchen! Or on your hair. Olive oil can also stain clothing.. or your pillow!
What about Essential Oils for Glow Serum?
Luckily, there are SO many great essential oil options for your glow serum. The power oils are going to be Lavender, Frankincense, Copaiba and Tea Tree. The first two come in Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit so you’re already half way there right from the start!
Lavender: A great oil for skin support, lavender may help unclog pores and improve circulation.
Frankincense: This oil will probably already be in many of your routines. I got used to adding a couple drops in my hands and rubbing on my face but now I can just add it to my glow serum! Frankincense supports your skin by helping it rejuvenate and might keep those wrinkles and fine lines from appearing. Just maybe! 😉
Copaiba: Copaiba is a must-have essential oil because of its skin support. It support cell growth and helps make your skin softer.
Tea Tree: Ever wonder why you see tea tree in every “natural” skin care product? Because it’s thought to calm redness and soothe irritated skin!
Other oils you may consider adding are Geranium, Cedarwood, Manuka, Elemi, Ylang Ylang and Carrot Seed essential oils. All are great skincare oils that can take your glow serum to the next level.
