* 3 TBS. herbal oil
* 1 1/2 tsp. coconut oil
* 1 3/4 tsp. cocoa butter
* 1/4 tsp. lanolin
* 1/2 tsp. (.10 ounce) beeswax
* 2 TBS. distilled water
* 1 3/4 tsp. rose water
* 3/4/ tsp. glycerin
* 1 TBS. aloe vera gel
* 1 drop tea tree essential oil
Melt the oils, cocoa butter, beeswax and lanolin over low heat. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature. The oil and water mixtures need to be the same temperature for cream to be successful.Put the distilled water, rose water, glycerin, aloe vera and tea tree oil into a blender.
Turn it on medium- high speed then begin to drizzle in the oil mixture. Continue until all the oil is added or until the blender begins to slow down and acts as if it will stop.
The mixture should look thick and creamy. Pour into containers and label. The tea tree oil is added to help prevent molds and bacteria from growing. I recommend that you make small batches and that you keep extra cream in the refrigerator.
If you keep a container in the bathroom it will stay good for two – three weeks.
