DIY: Herbal Moisturizing Cream II


| August/September 1995


Makes 1 1/8 cups

Here’s a sweetly scented skin cream that even children will use.

• 1 ounce vitamin E oil
• 4 ounces sweet almond oil
• 1 ounce beeswax
• 1 ounce jojoba oil
• 1 ounce coconut oil
• 1 teaspoon oil of calendula
• 1/8 teaspoon oil of chamomile
• 1/8 teaspoon oil of rose geranium

1. Combine the vitamin E and sweet almond oils in a nonreactive saucepan. Heat over low heat (do not boil). Gradually add the beeswax, stirring constantly. Add the jojoba oil, a little at a time, and stir until well blended. Slowly stir in the coconut oil.

2. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the calendula, chamomile, and rose geranium oils, stirring the mixture until it is smooth.

3. When the mixture has cooled, pour it into colored glass jars and seal them tightly. Keep refrigerated.

So when I made this, as soon as it started cooling the beeswax settled out, rather than the whole thing making a cream. Advise?
