Silky Hair Serum

3g | 12% BTMS-25

0.5g | 2% cetyl alcohol

11.25g | 45% Rosehip oil

10g | 40% Hemisqualane

0.125g | 0.5% Vitamin E

0.125g | 0.5% essential oil(s) of choice

Prepare a water bath by bringing about 3cm of water to a bare simmer over low to medium-low heat in a small saucepan.

Weigh the BTMS, cetyl alcohol, rosehip oil, and Hemisqualane into a small heat-resistant glass. Place the measuring cup in your prepared water bath to melt everything through.

Once everything has melted, remove the measuring cup from the heat

Set the measuring cup on a towel or hot pad to insulate it from the counter and stir the mixture with a flexible silicone spatula to combine everything.

Remove the towel and leave the serum to cool for about 20 minutes—it’ll appear milky and thicken up a bit.

Once cool, stir in the vitamin E and essential or fragrance oil.

Decant into a 30mL dropper bottle

To use, take a drop or two of the product in your palms, and disperse it across your hands before running it through your hair from about the ears down.

Shelf Life & Storage: This serum is 100% oil-based, it does not require a broad-spectrum preservative

Meadow Foam & Jojoba Facial Oil Serum

5.4g | 54% Hemisqualane

2.5g | 25% Meadowfoam seed oil

2g | 20% jojoba oil

0.05g | 0.5% Vitamin E

0.05g | 0.5% chamomile essential oil

Weigh all the ingredients into a small beaker, or directly into the bottle you’ll be storing the serum in.

If it’s a beaker, stir to combine. If you went straight for the bottle, cap and shake.

That’s it! I used a 15mL (0.5 fl oz) glass bottle with a dropper top to store my serum.

To use, spread a few drops over the skin towards the end of your skincare routine, after cleansing and using any lighter serums.

Because this serum is 100% oil-based, it does not require a broad-spectrum preservative
