|I’ve been working on a face cream because I was inspired by an e-mail we received from Karen. She requested a good face moisturizer recipe and I was thinking that I would love formulating a new recipe just for Karen.
I wanted to use our new Cherry Oil because it is a light weight oil and helps soothe dry skin. I felt that using this oil would be a treat for the face. I loved using the Cherry Oil in this recipe and I was happy with the feel it contributed to this face cream.
I chose the Rose Hip Oil as it is a nice oil for use in skin and face care products. I wanted some of that extra pampering from rose hips to make the face cream a daily treat.
Also I wanted to keep this face cream simple, I didn’t add any ingredients like extracts or additives. If you would like to change this formulation slightly, I would recommend using up to 3% in additives and/or extracts and decrease the Cherry Oil by the same amount you use.
Recipe: 600 grams or 21.16 ounces
Weigh all ingredients except the additives (Liquid Germall Plus, Vitamin E Natural, and Angel Type Fragrance Oil) into the microwave safe container. Heat in the microwave using short time bursts until everything is melted. Blend the ingredients to a smooth, creamy consistency using the immersion blender. Add additives once the temperature drops enough that you don’t feel like you are burning your hands when moving the mixing bucket. Blend until completely mixed. Pour into bottles and cap the bottles. Allow to cool completely.

I just love this site and want to make everything you post here!
Sounds wonderful, on my list to make!
thanks for the idea! still got some champagne flavor oil left from some of the swap goodies. i will definitely try this combination.
oops, that went on the wrong blog – scoot it down one! sorry!
Some of my friends have been asking me for an “old lady” face cream – something that’s moisturizing and kind to mature skin. This is definitely a step in that direction! No fragrance for me though. Thanks for the recipe!
