Lavender Face Cream
Weigh out 2.5 ounces of sweet almond oil into a heat proof measuring cup.
Add the mango butter, beeswax pastilles, jojoba oil and stearic acid.
Set the cup down into a pan filled with a few inches of water and heat on medium-low heat until everything is melted.
Remove from the pan and let cool to body temperature.
Strain the water and measure out four ounces of liquid.
Make sure it’s about body temperature then pour into a mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, turn the beaters on low and slowly drizzle in the sweet almond oil mixture. As the oils start to thicken, increase the speed to high.
Beat on high for 15 minutes, until your mixture is thick and creamy.
Stir in your desired essential oils
Spoon your lavender cream into clean, sterilized jars.
If you don’t add a preservative, store this cream in the refrigerator and use within 1 week. To make it last longer though, try adding a nature-derived preservative.
