Homemade body cream

Share Button

This is less oily than a lot of other homemade creams and lotions:

One quarter cup grated beeswax

One quarter cup carrier oil (I prefer argan, sweet almond, apricot, avocado or jojoba)

One quarter cup shea butter

One half cup coconut oil

One cup distilled water

1 tsp vitamin E oil

10 drops Frankinsense oil

10 drops Cedarwood oil

Heat carrier oil and beeswax in a bowl placed over a pot of gently boiling water till the beeswax has just melted. Add shea butter and moments later coconut oil and melt. Remove from heat.

When cooled some, but still soft, whisk while adding the distilled water little by little. Keep whisking till light and fluffy. This can take a while.

Add essential oils and stir in.

Keep in small, clean jars and refrigerate what will not be used within 2-3 weeks.
