In fact, the key to this home-made cosmetic recipe for body cream is essential oils, the fragrance of which will soothe your senses and reduce stress levels, and the subtle texture of the resulting product will illuminate and nourish your skin with all-natural ingredients.
Necessary products for 500 ml cream:
- 250 ml rose water
- 1 tablespoon of glycerin
- 175 ml of olive oil
- 75 g of coconut oil
- 25 g of beeswax
- 20 drops of geranium essential oil
- 20 drops of lavender essential oil
- 10 drops of patchouli essential oil
In a pan or saucepan heat the olive oil, coconut oil and beeswax and stir until all ingredients are homogenized.
Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, add glycerin to the water in another container.
Keep in mind that cooling mixture with the olive oil may turn white, which is a normal process. Pour the water with glycerin into a blender along with a mixture of olive oil, coconut oil and beeswax. Gradually, with the breakdown, the consistency will become thicker and the cream color whiter.
It remains to drip the essential oils to the ointment and dispose of it in sterilized jars or containers. The shelf life of the lotion is about a month if stored at room temperature and 45-50 days if kept in the refrigerator.
