- 100gm base cream (either made by using emulsifying wax- see previous recipes) or use one of our store bought types
- 3mls vegetable glycerine
- 3ml castor oil
- 4ml jojoba oil
- 3ml meadow foam oil
- 4 drops grapefruit seed extract
- 12 drops mandarin essential oil
Combine all ingredients thoroughly, mixing each one into base cream, before adding the next one. Pot into chosen containers. To use – apply a good coverage of cream to face and neck area – leave on skin for several minutes, then remove with damp cotton wool. NOTE: the castor oil in this recipe is not quickly absorbed by the skin, it attracts and draws dirt and grime to itself, making it an excellent cleansing ingredient. Castor oil is highly recommended in all cleansing products. The meadow foam oil is highly stable and an excellent anti oxidant. Use this cleanser at least once daily, but for best results use morning and night.
