Homemade Face Cream
- 2 1/4 oz cocao butter
- 1 tbps vitamin E
- 2 tbsp shea oil
- 1 tbsp calendula
- 1 tbsp jojoba
- 1 tbsp sweet almond oil
- 1/2 tsp cannabis oil
- 1 tbsp liquid grapefruit seed extract
- 1 1/2 tbsp rose water
- 4 tbsp aloe vera
- 2 tbsp colloidal silver
- tea (the remainder)
THEN I add ALOT of my fave essential oils - about 10-20 drops of each.
In a double boiler (also called a bain marie), heat the oils until melted. Some oils, like cocoa butter and beeswax, are solid at room temperature.
Pour the oils into a blender (or, into a heatproof container if using a stick-blender). Let the oils cool to room temperature.
Start the blender or hand held mixer- then slowly pour the water in - at some point the blender noise will change and you'll notice that you have cream! Keep blending to incorporate all of the water.
Add the drops of essential oil, and stir to disperse throughout the cream.
Scoop the cream into sterilized glass jars.
TIP - Sometimes the oils and waters won't want to hold together and so leaving the mixture at room temperature or just a bit higher will somewhat soften the oils and make it easier to blend.
