Natural Advantage Moisturiser for Cold Winters
Moisturiser Container Example
Best for cold weather when your skin is dry.
30 ml apricot kernel oil (or almond oil)
50 ml walnut oil (or grape-seed oil)
50 ml stearic acid powder
2 ml fresh baking soda
15 ml aloe vera gel
250 ml distilled water (or rosewater)
Group 1 - combine the oils and stearic acid powder in a heat-resistant container.
Group 2 - combine the baking soda, aloe vera gel, and water in a heat-resistant container.
Heat group 1 in a hot water bath until mixture is a clear liquid and all the stearic acid powder is melted.
Heat group 2 just before boiling.
Slowly add 1/3 of water mixture (group 2) to the oil mixture (group 1) and stir.
The combination will foam slightly as carbon dioxide is released.
Pour this mixture into a blender and stir.
Add rest of water mixture in a slow, steady stream and blend on high until the mixture becomes a white fluffy cream.
Spoon the cream into a container and allow to cool completely.
It is ready to use once cooled.
For gift ideas, use a smart looking container with a ribbon and label stuck on with special paper.
For yourself, any container will do.
Always date your home-made cosmetics. It is also good practice to write down the ingredients and quantities in your diary - tweaking the quantities and ingredients adds a personal touch.
