DIY: Skin Food without Lanolin

Where the skin is dry and wrinkled as well, you need to use a tissue builder. Skin food should be gently rubbed in  using circular motion.


1/2 cup sweet almond oil
2 tablespoons jojoba oil
1 ounce white wax
1 tablespoon Orange flower water ( you can make your own)
1.5 ounces glycerin
1 teaspoon borax
30 drops benzoin essential oil
i drop neroli essential oil

In the top of a double boiler set over simmering water, melt the sweet almond oil, jojoba oil and wax together. Combine the orange flower water and glycerin.  Dissolve the borax in the orange flower water mixture. Add the melted ingredients stirring continually. The mixture must be beaten until it is cooled.
 Just before the mass hardens, add the benzoin essential oil drop by drop and then the neroli essential oil.
