I make this recipe a lot. I am not against a good aqueous cream - after all it is the cream recommended the most on babies skin. Just make sure you get a really nice one, with as few additives as possible.
I have also noticed that quite a number of those very expensive face creams seem to have the same ingredients as a basic aqueous cream - and then - with their own list of essential oils and tinctures added. A bit like we are doing right here.
Or for the purists out there make your own basic cream for a pure natural cream. and add the essential oils recommended here.
WHY THE INGREDIENTS USED:
Well this just acts as a base, and as mentioned, it is the cream most recommended for use on babies skin.
Factor 50 Sun Protection
Your face needs a lot of protection to avoid those sun spots, and the inevitable wrinkles!
Rose hip Seed oil
100ml basic cream or a good aqueous cream
10ml factor 50 sun cream (for a sun protection - very important in our African climate!)
10ml Rose hip seed oil (for skin rejuvenation, and it's amazing properties for mature skin)
5ml Jojoba oil (excellent for the skin)
1 vitamin E oil capsule (awesome for mature skin)
5 drops frankincense essential oil (cell rejuvenation)
5 drops palmarosa essential oil (cell rejuvenation)
2 drops neroli essential oil (tones skin)
- Mix all ingredients together, cutting open the vitamin E capsule and adding to the mix.
