Aura Cacia Recipes
Rose and Lavender Facial Cream

In aromatherapy, rose oil inspires emotional calm and stability without sedative effects. The aroma is powerful and comforting. Its physical actions are mildly astringent and balancing. Rose and lavender facial cream is excellent for sensitive combination skin. Dabbed onto a freshly washed face, this cream is a fragrant, toning emollient.

1/2 ounce beeswax
4 ounces jojoba oil
3 ounces distilled water
20 drops rose absolute or  rose otto essential oil
15 drops lavender essential oil
Melt the wax in the jojoba oil using a double boiler. Add the distilled water in a thin stream while vigorously beating the mixture with a wire whisk. Remove from heat and continue whisking the oil while adding the essential oils, drop by drop.

Ease of Preparation: 3 to 5 ingredients

We Suggest
Make a tea of fresh rose petals and lavender flowers, and use this in place of the distilled water.
