Other than the name for the recipe, which I could honestly live without, and my ineptitude while I learn how to make this stuff, I LOVE this cream. I used to spend $20-40 on a jar of face cream. Ridiculous! This stuff works sooooooo much better, and it is all natural. I used to have a rash, permanent on my cheeks. The dermatologist told me it was just dry. I have tried a lot of different creams, and this one actually worked.
Second recipe from our weekend of fun!
Sleeping Beauty Cream
from the book Natural Beauty for All Seasons, which is a great book and I am making my way through deciding which recipes I want to try!
What you need:
1 tablespoon grated beeswax
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
1/4 cup light sesame oil
1/4 cup lemon oil/water mix (recipe in book says orange flower water which I did not have)
pinch of borax
mix beeswax, vitamin E and sesame, heat until melted. I did this in the microwave, but I found it was uneven and didn't really melt everything that I thought it had melted, so next time, double boiler. Combine the lemon oil water and borax powder, heat until warm. I poured everything together in a bowl, and then used my hand blender for a minute. I poured it into clean containers that used to hold that really expensive stuff.
I have been using it for a few weeks now and my skin actually has a glow again, no more dry and flaky looking face. I LOVE IT! I will be probably mess a bit with the recipe, depending on what I have on hand, but I think it is pretty good the way I made it!
