I love love love this recipe! Not just because of the fact that it is pretty simple to make but it is really effective. I am making this for the second time & simply love the way it works. So lets Start…
- Evening Primrose Oil
- Vitamin E Oil
Preparation, Instructions & Application
Mix both of them in equal quantities. If you are using capsule than puncture the same with a clean & sterilized needle or scissors. Just make small amounts and store it in a clean sterilized dark glass (30 ml) bottle. Apply it every morning & evening on a clean face while moisturizing. Use a clean Q-tip to apply it under the eyes & then the remaining part can be applied on the eye lid.
Where to buy the Ingredients?
This is my favorite part, because I have to put a lot of effort in researching for these 100% organic items in India. you will find a lot of post but all of them from people outside the country, & then you keep wondering where to buy it from.
So all you need to do is go to a chemist shop and ask for Vitamin E Capsules
Please note that there are 2 kinds of vitamin E : Capsule form or Pure Oil i.e. the good-for-your-skin type and the other is not-so-good-for-your-skin type (but decent enough to be absorbed by body). The ingredient in these capsules you need to look for is D-alpha tocopherol , this one is in its natural state & unchanged chemically. Don’t buy the one which says Dl –alpha tocopherol because this is a synthetic form of vitamin E. Check this on the back of the capsules or bottle where it lists the ingredients. Some brands you can buy are: Bio 3 Sg 268 mg – Capsule, Health Aid Vitamin E 400iu (d-alpha Tocopherol), Nature’s Bounty E400Pure d-Alpha.
Coming to Primrose Evening Oil
The oil that you purchase should be raw, organic, unrefined & cold pressed. Now if you look at the brand - Health Aid Evening Primrose you will find DI-alpha Vit E mixed with it, which is synthetically produced, So don’t by this. Where as Barlean’s Organic Oils Evening Primrose Oil , Soulflower Evening Primrose Oil 30 ml are good ones to prefer.
