Honey & Sandalwood Creamy Cleanser

rose cham 3

Ideal for dehydrated winter skin

This creamy cleanser is ideal to nourish dehydrated dry winter skin. Simply massage a small peanut amount into a wet face (using a muslin cloth if you wish) & wash off with lots of tepid water. Honey acts as a natural humectant; helping to retain moisture in the skin.

These cleansers & other beauty products make a lovely gift or hen party activity. There is an initial outlay for the different ingredients, but in the long-term it really is a cost-saving.  No nasty chemicals either! Another bonus that I find with home-made products is that a little goes a long way….you only need a tiny amount per application, so it is a win win investment!

 

Creamy Cleanser: sandalwood & Honey

Ingredients

9g plant-derived emulsifying wax

2g cocoa or shea butter

14ml sweet almond oil

Sterile water

1 teaspoon of runny honey

Grapefruit seed extract

Sandalwood essential oil

3 drops rosewood oil

7 drops of rosemary oil

6 drops Vitamin E oil

 

Melt the wax, cocoa or shea butter  & sweet almond oil in a heat-proof container over a pan of boiling water (a bain-marie) & gently mix together.

Remove from the heat.

In separate ban-marie, heat water, honey & grapefruit seed extract to 65ºC, then add slowly to the melted oils to form a milky watery suspension. Mix gently until the mixture cools & begins to thicken.

Then add the sandalwoodrosemary oil, rosewood essential oils & the vitamin E oil. Mix genty. then pour into sterile pots.

Store in a cool place away from direct sunshine if not being used immediately.
