My previous homemade facial cream for pimples was based on beeswax and it turned out to be great though it was very thick. So my today’s facial cream i decided to make on the base of lanolin so I could receive more gentle consistency.
Please check my Yahoo Flickr page if you want step by step guide with photos here .
Preparation time: about 30 minutes
Difficulty: 2 of 5
* 2 teaspoons of lanolin
* 4 teaspoons of calendula oil
* 4 teaspoons of almond oil
* 10 teaspoons of chamomile tea
* 2 drops of tea tree essential oil
* 2 drops of lavender essential oil
Melt lanolin in a double boiler. Add calendula and almond oils to the melted lanolin. Then slowly fill the chamomile tea. Shake the medley thoroughly with a mixer, so water and oils could make up a paste. Shake till cream get cold. Received medley pour out to a glass jar. If you are going to add essential oils to the cream, jar should be made of a glass. After you pored out the medley to a jar and add 2 drops of tea tree oil and 2 drops of lavender oil.
hurray! Cream came out to be very gentle and rapidly soaking.
