My Favorite 4 Ways to Use Argan Oil On My Face

I do everything I can to keep chemicals out of my personal care items, so we use a lot of argan oil in our house. Today, I thought I would share my 4 favorite DIY Recipes for incorporating argan oil into our facial products. These recipes are so simple you only need a few ingredients for each. I especially love that you can customize them to suite your skin types.

Facial Moisturizer:

Avoid nasty chemicals that are in most commercial products with this organic, all natural DIY Facial Moisturizer.

1 1/2 oz argan oil

10 drops essential oil

Customize it to your skin type by choosing from the list of recommended essential oils below.

Pre-shave Oil:

Designed to help your hair become more soft and pliable before shaving, you can maximize the benefits of this all natural pre-shave oil by tailoring it to your skin type.

2 tablespoons Argan oil

1/4 cup sweet almond oil

20 drops essential oil

Awesome recipe to use on your bikini area to avoid those ugly red bumps!

Even though this one doesn't need essential oils, I love adding a drop or two of Frankincense to it.​

Eye Makeup Remover:

With only 4 ingredients, this eye makeup remover is super easy to make. Recognized for its medicinal purposes, witch hazel is included in the recipe to help reduce puffiness.

2 Tablespoons of organic argan oil

2 Tablespoons vitamin E oil

3 Tablespoons of alcohol free witch hazel

1/2 Cups purified water

Gentle Facial Scrub:

I love body scrubs made with sea salt, but for my face I prefer something a bit more gentle. Using Raw Sugar is the perfect solution.  Remember to customize it for your skin type!

1 tbsp Argan Oil

2 tbsp Olive Oil

2 tbsp Honey

1/2 cup Turbinado Sugar (Raw Sugar)

15 drop of Essential Oil

A note about using argan oil on your face

Oil does NOT clog your pores, it actually helps to keep your skin in balance. Most cleansers are harsh and strips your skin of its oils, which causes your skin to produce more oils, which results in an overproduction of oil that then clogs your pores! Crazy, isn’t it?

A note about storing your customized facial products

Just chose an appropriate size jar that has been cleaned and sterilized. I like to use small mason jars. I sterilize them by pre-washing with soap and hot water, and then put then through the heated cycle of my dishwasher.  The recipes should be stored at room temperature

Acne Prone Skin


Patchouli, or Melaleuca (tea tree oil)

Aging Skin


My personal favorites for aging skin: Ylang-ylang, Patchouli, Frankincense and Myrrh.  You can also try: Sandlewood, Cypress, Lavender or Palmarosa

Combination Skin


Patchouli, Bergamot, Geranium or Lavender

Dry Skin


Geranium, Sandalwood, Chamomile, or Cedarwood

Oily Skin


Bergamot, Cypress, or Geranium

Additional Notes:


  • Lavender is good for any skin type
  • Be sure to use HIGH QUALITY essential oils. They may be expensive, but a small bottle will last longer because you need less. I personally use doTerra
  • Some essential oils are much stronger in scent than others, so adjust the amount of drops accordingly
