Dandelion Age Spot Oil

March 15, 2019

 

Dandelions are some of the first spring flowers to appear. They are a useful beauty ingredient added to the bath or used as a hair rinse. The jagged green leaves can be infused in oil to fade age spots and freckles.  Here is a simple recipe to try at home: 

 

Dandelion Age Spot Oil 

1 /4 cup fresh, chopped dandelion leaves 

2 tablespoons castor oil 

2 tablespoons sunflower oil 

 

Make sure the dandelion leaves are clean and dry.  (Also be sure the leaves you use have not been sprayed with chemicals. I usually use the ones from my yard which I know are safe.) Place the leaves and oils in a heat-resistant container and gently warm.  Do not boil.  Let the mixture sit for at least 3 hours.  Strain out all the leaves and pour into a clean bottle with a tight fitting cork or lid.  

 

To use: Rub a small amount of the oil into your skin daily. It may take several weeks, but you will see your freckles and ages spots begin to fade. 

 

Yield: 2 ounces 

 

Start a dandelion garden!  They are pollinator friendly and easy to grow.  Simply collect those fluffy puffballs of seeds and plant them in a corner of your yard.  They will grow in almost every soil type. 

 

Enjoy!
