Protect your Face with this Chemical Free Recipe
I found this great natural recipe from a spa book I use at home to keep your face well hydrated and protected throughout the day. I am giving you natural alternatives to chemically enhanced cosmetics. You can do put this together quickly at home and will cost you pennies.
6 tablespoons almond oil
2 tablespoons jojoba oil
1 ounce lanolin
1 ounce white wax
6 tablespoons rosewater
2 tablespoons witch hazel
3/4 teaspoon benzoin essential oil
Please the almond oil,jojoba oil,lanolin and white wax into the top of a double boiler set over simmering water.
When all the ingredients are melted, take the top out and slow stir the mixture constantly until cooled, adding little by little, during the stirring, the rosewater, witch hazel and essential oil.
The result will be more than half a pound of luxurious cream. Place the mixture in a bottle, cork tightly and put aside for future use. To use gently rub into face as required.
Hope you enjoy this recipe. Email or send me comments for feedback.
