3. Anti-Aging Cream
Do you feel like you need to start using anti-aging products that won’t empty your pocket? If so, homemade creams are always a good solution, because they are often cheaper and definitely way more natural than the chemical products. For this cream, you need 1/2 cup organic coconut oil and 6-8 vitamin E capsules. Coconut oil works as moisturizer and is rich with many nutrients, while vitamin E promotes healing and prevents premature aging.
4. Shea Butter Cream
Shea butter is rich with vitamins A, E and F that will make our skin healthier, while at the same time the butter increases the firmness and reduces inflammation around our eyes.

NeoDefend (or similar), 1 tbsp. rosehip seed oil, 1 tbsp. sweet almond oil, 1/4 tsp. vitamin E, 1 tsp. emulsifying wax, 1 drop carrot seed essential oil and 3 drop lavender essential oil. Carrot seed oil is known for enhancing our body’s response to UV rays and it rejuvenates skin cells. Many people add lavender oil because of its scent, but it has its own benefits as well – it calms down and works as antifungal and antiseptic.
6. Eye Cream with Essential Oils

It may sound difficult, but just carefully go through the instructions and you’ll have an amazing homemade cream!
9. Cream with Lemon Essential Oil
For this cream you need 7 tablespoons avocado oil, 1 tablespoon beeswax pellers and 20 drops lemon essential oil. The beeswax is often used in creams and other beauty products because it works as thickening agent and it makes the skin firm and tight. The star of this cream is the lemon oil, which cleanses the skin and prepares it for the fatty acids coming from the avocado oil. At the same time, it nourishes the skin and makes it soft.
10. Night Cream
