Happy Face

Posted on Updated on

It’s time to fire up the blender and mix some yummy ingredients to soothe this dry thirsty winter complexion.  First I shredded an ounce or so of beeswax and put it in a double boiler to melt. Then, to the pot, add 1/8 cup each of cocoa butter and palm oil.  Next add 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil.  When these are all liquified, they go in the blender to sit and cool.  Once cooled, add (a little at a time through the hole in the top of the blender) 1 cup of 100% aloe vera gel and several drops of essential oils.  I used ylang ylang and sweet orange. Blend well, and store in jars.  I added a 1/4 tsp of cocoa powder for color and got a rich creamy earthy color.
