Tropical Vacation Facial Cream

Finished Face Cream

Finished Face Cream

Winter is the perfect time to sit by the roaring fireplace and dream of exotic locations where the sun is warm and there are sandy beaches just waiting for you to lounge in their picturesque embrace. Ok, I’ll admit it. I am a dreamer and a romantic but I truly love being toasty warm.

Today I wanted to make a simple face lotion that keeps the skin soft and smells fun. This lotion is such a treat because it is and instant vacation in a jar! Come join me as we start back up in this new year!

The first step to making this facial cream is to weigh everything except for the extracts, preservative, and fragrance oil into a microwave safe container. Heat until everything is melted then you can add the extracts and fragrance oil. Once the lotion is cooled to under 120° F you may add the preservative. Once the lotion has cool completely you can put it into the container of your choice. Label and enjoy!
