2 tablespoons beeswax
1 tablespoon emulsifying wax
4 tablespoons unperfumed baby oil
3 tablespoons rose-water
1/4 teaspoon borax
5 drops essential rose oil
3 drops red food color
Apply this cream to the face and throat. Leave for a few minutes, then gently remove it with cotton wool soaked in an equal mixture of witch-hazel and rose water, or for those with really dry skin, three parts rose-water to one part witch hazel. Baby oil is used because it is not absorbed by the skin.
Place Broken pieces of solid ingredients in separate jars and heat them in a pan of water, simmering until they have melted. Measure the melted ingredients into a heat resistant basin over a pan of simmering water. Measure and stir in the oils, but not the perfumed essential oil. Pour the water (orange water etc.) into a heat resistant container. Add the borax and heat gently until it dissolves. Rmove the basin (melted wax and oils) from the pan and add the borax water. Mix thoroughly . Place the basin in a shallow dish of cold water and continue beating. Add the essential oil and beat until the mixture cools and thickens. Transfer the cream into screw top jars.
