Royal Jelly Facelift


Stumble it!

Inspired by Better Basics for the Home, by Annie B. Bond (Three Rivers Press, 1999).

I once bought active royal bee jelly for a Skincare formula I was making, and decided to feel what it felt like on my face, so I massaged a small amount into my skin.

In a few minutes I noticed my skin tightening. I decided to go look in the mirror, and low and behold I looked like I had just had a face lift! While putting royal jelly on straight is too tightening to wear comfortably for very long, I formulated a royal jelly face lift cream that feels good and gives the look of a face lift too! Here is the formula:

The Royal Jelly Facelift Cream

This easy skin cream only takes 25 minutes to make! Use ´┐Żactive´┐Ż royal jelly available in health food stores.

  • 2 1/2 ounces blended oils (see “What are the Best Oils for Your Skin,” below)
  • 1 1/2 ounces Coconut Oil or Cocoa Butter
  • 1/2 ounce Beeswax
  • 4 ounces distilled or purified water
  • 2-3 teaspoon active royal jelly
  • 30 drops Grapefruit seed extract (available in health food stores)
  • Essential oils of choice (optional)

Weigh the Coconut Oil and Beeswax on a scale. Combine the oils and Beeswax in a double boiler, and melt over a low heat, stirring occasionally. This step takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the melted oils and Beeswax from the stove and add the water. Mix with an electric mixer until creamy and thick. Stir in the Grapefruit seed extract and essential oils (if using). Store in glass jars with screw-on tops. Makes 8 ounces of cream.

Note: This cream should last for 4 months or so, but if you see mold growing, discard. When you make kitchen cosmetics, cleanliness is really important so bacteria doesn’t grow. Purified or distilled water is used in this recipe because bacteria has been filtered out.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes

What are the Best Oils for Your Skin? The only way to find the best oils for your skin is to go to a health food store and buy a variety and see how they feel. Your skin will “tell” you when you have found the best ones for you. Join with some friends for this experiment, and share the cost.

Here are some suggested oils to try: Almond oil; Apricot Kernel oil (great for sensitive and older skin); Avocado oil (one of the most moisturizing oils and good for older skin); Cocoa Butter (protective and water repellent); Grapeseed oil (a dry oil, good so the cream isn’t too greasy); Jojoba (actually a liquid wax and good to use so the cream isn’t too greasy); peanut oil (good for all skin types); Sesame oil (natural sunscreen); Shea Butter (natural sunscreen); and wheat germ oil (high in Vitamins and Minerals).
