Directions from packaging:

After cleansing face and hands, dispense 1 pump onto fingertips, rub together with other hand, take 4 deep breaths to receive the aromatherapy benefits. Starting at the jawline, work serum from the center outward and upward over the cheeks to hairline. Then at the center, make sweeping strokes from the collarbone up and out to the sides of the neck. Work from the nose out to the hairline. Continue with upper lip, lower lip and chin. At the chin, follow along the lower jaw line to behind the ear lobe Always lift your hands at the end of each motion and position to start on the next area. Never massage the face in a downward or circular motion. This would counteract the upward outward motion and the lifting benefits.

Warnings from packaging:

Caution: Not for internal use. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid eye contact. Test for use on sensitive skin. Avoid during pregnancy
