Ingredients

Directions

    1. In a small pot over high heat, bring 3 to 4 cups water to a simmer.

    2. In a measuring cup, combine sweet almond oil and beeswax, then place cup in the simmering water and heat until beeswax is melted. Remove from heat and set aside.

    3. In a separate container, dissolve sodium borate in remaining 1 cup water and heat mixture until it reaches the same temperature as the sweet almond oil and beeswax liquid.

    4. Pour sodium water into blender, turn on blender and add the sweet almond oil and beeswax mixture in a thin, steady stream. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down sides of blender with a spatula if needed.

    5. Using a spatula, transfer cream to container and add essential oils. Stir until well blended.

    6. To use, apply to clean skin.

    Test on a small area before general use, and do not use on broken skin. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.
