This combination of rose, neroli and frankincense makes for the perfect after sun summertime cream. Add this to some light but nourishing apricot kernal oil and you’ve got a whole lot of skin loving going on!
Cooling, anti-inflammatory (if you were in the sun for a touch too long), anti-wrinkle and nourishing; it’s also fun to make.
30mls apricot kernal oil component
2 drops neroli essential oil
2 drops frankincense essential oil
- Gently melt the apricot kernal oil and beeswax in one pyrex jug and bring the rosewater to the same temperature in another pyrex jug. I do this by standing both pyrex jugs in a frying pan of water (don’t heat oils directly on the stove as they’re highly flammable).
- When the beeswax has melted, remove from the heat and whisk the rosewater into the oil.
- When it resembles the texture of a stiff egg white add your essential oils and whisk in.
- Pour into your sterilised jars.
