In the recent years, there has been a lot of controversy in beauty communities around the world regarding the influence of big companies that are making skin care products. Some people believe they are using the harmful ingredients which do us more harm than good, while others believe them blindly. It is hard to determine which one is wrong and which one is good. But, one thing is sure, more and more people, especially women are taking the step back and trying the products which are either hand – made or have organic and natural ingredients. If you are one of those people, then we are going to teach you how to make an herbal cream at home.

The oil

post10aDepending on your skin type, you will want to find an oil which will match your skin condition. For example, if you have dry skin, then you should use olive or coconut oil. On the other hand, if you have oily skin, you will have to find the balance, which often hard to do because oily skin requires a lot of attention, for example, you need to keep it hydrated, but not use something that will clog your pores and make your face greasy. For this occasion, it’s best to use the mixture of grapeseed oil, sunflower oil, and safflower oil. They contain a lot of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, which will do wonders to your skin. So, the oil is the base, and you just add other ingredients in it.

Wax

Wax is an essential part of any hand – made cream because it will add thickens and texture. If you could find someone who is keeping the bee hives and buy wax from them, it would be the best solution. Unfortunately, you can get a lot of things today on the internet, and a small majority of them are genuine. So, it is important to find 100% pure bee fax for this purpose because only genuine bee fax has healing properties and it is often used to treat many skin conditions.

The water

You can use any type of the water, for example, rain water, well or distilled water or you can use infused water as a tea, to get the healthy compounds from the plants. For instance, chamomile and meant tea are great, as well as aloe water.

Powder herb

You just choose the herb that you need for this purpose and turn it into a powder. It is important to use the dry leaves of the herb because it will be easier to process it.

This the last ingredient and it will prolong the duration of your cream. The other name for emulsifier is borax, a type of salt, which you can find in any grocery store.

The recipe

One cup of oil

1 ¼ of bee wax

Half of cup of water

One table spoon of powdered herbs

1/8 teaspoon of borax

Warm the oil and melt the wax, use a food processor to combine all incidents and let it cool for one hour in a fridge.
