Homemade body cream

Share Button

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

50 ml (one half dl) grated beeswax

50 ml (one half dl) carrier oil (I prefer argan, sweet almond, apricot, avocado or jojoba)

50 ml (one half dl) shea butter

50 ml (one half dl) coconut oil

2 dl distilled water

1 dl aloe vera gel

1 tsp vitamin E oil

10 drops frankincense oil

10 drops cedarwood oil

10 drops clary sage essential oil

Heat carrier oil and beeswax slowly 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.
