Skin Cream

Ingredients
30 grams of beeswax

10 Tablespoons of sweet almond oil, or grapeseed oil

3 Tablespoons+1 teaspoon jojoba oil

3 Tablespoons + 1 Teaspoon olive oil

10 drops grapefruit seed extract

4 Tablespoons pure spring water

1/2 teaspoon citric acid or ascorbic acid

20 drops essential oil of lavender

Instructions

Heat beeswax with oils and grapefruit seed extract in the top of a double boiler.

Stir the ascorbic acid into the spring water.

Warm the water to body temperature, then add to the oils, one drop at a time, beating thoroughly with a small whisk.

When you have added about half of the water, remove from heat and continue to add the water, a little at a time, until completely incorporated.

As soon as the mixture starts to thicken, stir in the essential oil.

Store in sterilized jars.

Use as a night cream, day cream, lip balm, hand cream, anywhere your skin is dry or irritated! It is very soothing, and is quickly absorbed by thirsty skin! The natural oils do not sit on the surface of your skin, like many products with a mineral oil base will.
