Natural Handmade Nourishing Under Eye Cream Recipe

Beauty DIY with Free Printable Labels - Handmade Natural Nourishing Anti-Wrinkle Under Eye Cream Recipe - Also Great as a Salve for Dry Skin, Eczema and Psoriasis Back in April, I introduced my natural anti-wrinkle under eye cream to Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen. Today, I want to share that recipe with you so you can make some for yourself or as gifts for others. I’m also including free printable labels for this natural homemade nourishing under eye cream in both black and white and color. They’re perfect for placing on the outside of a poly zipper bag that contains a lip balm sized container of this anti-wrinkle cream or for placing on the outside of larger jars.

This natural recipe was formulated to help minimize the natural effects of aging and improve the overall condition of sensitive under eye skin. Based on my own under eye skin issues of occasional dry patches, puffiness, thinning skin and wrinkles that are starting to become visible in my late thirties, I formulated this natural under eye anti-aging cream with a combination of rich, skin conditioning oils and botanicals known for their anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and rejuvenating properties.

This handmade under eye cream is also comprised 100% pure, highly prized rosewood essential oil which has been documented to aid in a multitude of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, acne, dry and oily skin, elasticity, and wrinkles. It also contains high percentages of olive squalane – commonly referred to as a “Face Lift in a Bottle” – botanical extracts of calendula, marshmallow, aloe, horsetail and irish moss, kokum butter, shea butter, cocoa butter, hemp seed oil, evening primrose oil, argan oil, camelina oil, jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil, grape seed oil and vitamin E oil.

1 Tablespoon beeswax pastilles
1 Tablespoon grated candellila wax (or 1 1/2 Tablespoons candellila wax if you do not want to use beeswax)
.3 oz. kokum butter
.3 oz. cocoa butter
.35 oz. shea butter
.35 oz. hemp seed butter
.35 oz. horsetail butter
1/2 teaspoon hemp seed oil
1 teaspoon evening primrose oil
1 teaspoon argan oil
1 teaspoon camelina oil
1 teaspoon clear jojoba oil
1 teaspoon Crafter’s Choice Oil Soluble Botanic Extract Blend (or Calendula Infused Olive Oil)
1.5 ml olive squalane oil
2 ml GMO free Vitamin E oil
2 ml pure rosewood essential oil (not a blend)
1/2 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon grape seed oil


digital kitchen scale
8 empty 10 ml (1/3 oz.) lip balm pots with lids
glass measuring cup
metal utensil for stirring
graduate plastic transfer pipettes
8 3″ x 4″ clear poly zipper bags
8.5″ x 11″ full page sticker label sheet


Begin by measuring out the waxes into a glass pyrex measuring cup and heat in microwave until melted about halfway through. Next, weigh out the butters using a digital kitchen scale and add to the partially melted waxes. Continue heating in the microwave until all ingredients are melted. Carefully remove the container – it will be hot so use a pot holder! – then measure out the all of the oils except for the olive squalane oil, vitamin E and rosewood essential oil with teaspoon and half teaspoon measurements and stir into the wax and butter mixture. Finally, using a different graduated plastic transfer pipette for the remaining ingredients, measure out the olive squalane oil, vitamin E oil and rosewood essential oil and stir into the mixture.

Now simply pour approximately .33 oz. of the liquid under eye cream into each of the eight lip balm pots. Allow to cool, then cap tightly. Each container of this nourishing eye cream will cost approximately $4 to make (including the cost of the container) depending on where you source the ingredients. The initial start up cost for this recipe, will be much higher as many of the ingredients need to be purchased in quantities larger than necessary for eight containers.

To use this natural handmade under eye cream, simply apply under and around the eye area at night. It can be reapplied in the morning and worn under makeup as well. This product has the consistency of a salve so little goes a long way! It also makes a nice base for applying eye makeup and giving your eyeshadow that extra needed staying power! It’s also great for spot treatment of patches of dry skin and eczema. As with any product, if irritation develops, discontinue use immediately.

Packed Handmade Under Eye Cream

If you are gifting or sharing this product, you can place each container inside of a poly zipper bag and label with my printable labels. {Download labels here.} The labels come in both black and white (page 1) and color (page 2) and have “Handmade Natural Nourishing Under Eye Cream” written on them. And, as another new season of The Walking Dead is set to start soon, I’ve also included a page of labels with “Handmade Zombie Prevention Under Eye Cream” (page 3) printed on them. To print your labels, simply choose the page of labels you want to use and print that page only onto a blank, full page sticker sheet. A printable version of the recipe (page 4) is also included.

Once you print your labels of choice, simply cut them out, remove the backing and apply to the outside of the packaging. (Labels are for personal use only.) If you’d like to include a list of ingredients on the back or underside of your packaging, you can download the printable labels for the INCI listing of ingredients here.

  1. This sounds awesome – not sure if I have all of those ingredients to try it. Lately I have been making my own face oil with just a couple of ingredients and love it. I always love reading your skin care recipes and learn something new.

  2. Diana Johnson says:

    Do you sell this amazing sounding eye cream?!

  3. Do you have newly made ones that you’re selling?

  4. Can I use just beeswax for this recipe?

  5. I didnt want to make a cream so I just combined:
    Hemp seed oil, tamanu oil, evening primrose oil, camelina oil, jojoba oil, wheat germ oil, grape seed oil, and coffee infused olive oil with three drops of nutmeg essential oil. Everything at a tsp measure except grape seed oil and hemp seed oil which I used just 1/2 tsp. Thank You so much for the inspiration!
