home made face facial skin care creams essential oils

Many people expect any cream or lotion to show overnight effects, but you need to be patient and let your skin regenerate in order to see the difference - and the older you get the longer the cycle of regeneration is. On average you should see results between 28 and 37 days.

Essential oils have various therapeutic properties which add zing to any cream, and some of them have very specialized properties to help with skin conditions. If you have never used essential oils, and are prone to allergic reactions, please do a skin patch test with any new ingredient you use.

Some oils to consider for facial creams would include: Home made creams and skincare products

The list above includes oils that have great properties that can be of use to help fight wrinkles and the traces of ageing.

When selecting essential oils for facial or body creams and lotions, stay away from sun sensitizing essential oils, as they will cause a problem if you go into the sun.

Aqueous base cream home made skincare creams base cream lotion oil beeswax oil cream

If you do not want to get involved with too much mixing, you can make a simple moisturizer by using a neutral aqueous base cream, obtainable from your pharmacy, druggist or health shop, and add your desired essential oils to it.

Do not exceed the recommended dilution of essential oil to the base, since more is not always better, and you could burn your skin with too strong a mixture.

Beeswax and oil cream beeswax and oil cream home made skincare creams

Below is the recipe for a richer cream than just an aqueous base cream, but please note that it should be kept cool and for no longer than six weeks.

  • Melt 15 g of pure beeswax together with 130 ml sweet almond oil, in a bain-marie.
    • Do not melt the beeswax in a pot on direct heat from a plate on the stove (electric or gas) since it can burn easily and cause a fire hazard.
    • Another fixed oil can be used instead of the almond oil, although sweet almond oil does do wonders for the skin.
    • Some people are hesitant to use beeswax in skin products, since they think that it will "block the pores" but when used in a mixture like this, not only does it do wonders for softening the skin, but will not cause any problems.
    • If you are allergic to bee products, care should be taken when using it.
  • While the beeswax is melting, gently warm 50 ml rosewater, or any other floral water, using the same method as above.
  • Next start to mix the floral water to the beeswax and oil mixture, mixing it with a whisk or electric mixer. This should be done slowly and as soon as a quarter of the water has been added, remove the pot from the bain-marie, and complete the water addition.

When you have finished adding the water the mixture will start to set, and before it does mix in 8 drops of your chosen essential oil.
