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 under eye cream 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 under eye cream 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 natural 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.”

Nourishing Natural Under Eye Cream Recipe

1 Tablespoon beeswax pastilles
1 Tablespoon grated carnauba wax
.3 oz. kokum butter
.3 oz. cocoa butter
1 oz. shea butter
1/2 teaspoon hemp seed oil
1 teaspoon evening primrose oil
1 teaspoon argan oil
1 teaspoon camelina oil
1 teaspoon jojoba oil
1 teaspoon Calendula Infused Olive Oil (Learn how to make herbal infused oil here.)
1.5 ml olive squalane oil
2 ml GMO free Vitamin E oil
2 ml rosewood essential oil or ho wood essential oil
1/2 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon grapeseed 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 at reduced power in a microwave (or alternately you can use a double boiler) 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 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 original recipe (page 4) is also included. (This recipe was adapted as some ingredients were no longer readily available.)

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.)

    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.

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

    1. Rebecca D. Dillon

      November 11, 2013 at 7:20 pm

      I do not. I did two batches of this that sold out rather quickly but won’t be making it again, at least not this year as I am out of the ingredients at this time.

    Can I use just beeswax for this recipe?

    1. Rebecca D. Dillon

      November 13, 2013 at 10:10 pm

      Sure. You would want to use 3 Tablespoons of beeswax and omit the other wax altogether.

    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!
