Don't be freaked out by the amount of times I say 'oil' in the recipe. While we all try to avoid an oily face, these oils will actually do wonders for your skin and keep your skin looking young and hydrated. Here's the secret: Rosehip Oil! “Rosehip seed oil contains Vitamin A, which helps to delay the effects of skin aging, assists with cell regeneration, and promotes collagen and elastin levels to increase. This results in firmer, smoother, and more youthful skin with greater elasticity.” All of these ingredients can be found at your local health food store (Sprouts or Jimbos if you're in California!) Ingredients 2 tsp jojoba oil 1 tsp coconut oil 3 tsp apricot kernel oil 3 tsp Rosehip seed oil 1.5 tsp beeswax pastilles 6-10 tsp rose-water How to: Place beeswax, jojoba, coconut, rosehip and essential oils (basically everything besides the rose water!) in a double boiler or right in a stainless steel pan (keep your pans separate). Heat on low very gently to melt wax about 5-8 minutes. Stir well. After you you remove the ingredients from the stove (I let mine cool for a few minutes because it can be really hot.) Place in blender (be careful bc this can be very tough to clean out after). Add in the rose water a little bit at a time (through the top of the blender). Pulse the blender a few times and you will have a nice fluffy cream. Remember the cleanup can be MESSY! Still worth it though.
This probably smells so good!
You're right, that is a LOT of oils, but they're all beneficial!!
You can just make rose water at home right?
Cool recipe!
Awesome, adding this to my collection ;)
