The Day Dreamer Moisturizer Recipe

Some of my little creams
This has been so fun for me to do. 

I promised you the recipe so here is the recipe for 
The Day Dreamer Moisturizer:

In a microwave safe glass bowl add:

1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp. citric acid
Heat until citric acid is completely melted, add:
4 Tbls. Emulsifying wax (or beeswax)
2 tsp.glycerin 
2 Tbls. (heaping) steric acid 
heat until all is melted, don't boil, add:
1/3 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil and Rose Hip Oil - mixed half and half. 
1 teaspoon (5ml) Vitamin E Oil.
Whip with an immersion blender. 
Now add the 1/2 cup ice water or ice chips (more is fine if needed to make light and fluffy.).
When cooler add:
8 drops Lavender essential oil
1 drop Chamomile essential oil
8 drops Geranium EO
4 drops Lemongrass EO
6 drops Rose Absolute EO
5 drops Vanilla EO
2 drops Ylang Ylang EO
2 drops Peppermint EO

When cool - Whip, Whip, Whip with an emmersion blender until all light and fluffy. 

Be sure to heat water to almost boiling for citric acid 
Use 1/2 or more cups of ice chips or ice water and whip until light and fluffy
For the sake of the oils don't add the essential oils until the mixture is cool.

Put in little jars with lids. You will love it. Your face will love it. Your friend's faces will love it!

Handmade Lotions with Essential Oils and Bach Flowers

Home Made Creams and Recipes

I learned how to make all natural lotions from my sweet 
neighbors Julie and Francine. 

Here is the basic recipe;
1 1/2 cups Water
4 Tbs. Emulsifying Wax 
2 tsp. Glycerin
1/3 cup Sweet Almond, Grape-seed or Fractionated Coconut Oil
2 Tbs. (heaping)  Steric Acid 
1 tsp. Citric Acid

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes or until water is milky whit, careful not to boil. When it has cooled some (I add some ice cubes to help it cool) blend with an immersion blender until smooth and fluffy. Add you oils and and blend again. Then pour it into jars or bottles. 

I have made: 
  • Queens Cream (a cleanser)
  • Day Dreamer (a moisturizer)
  • Diva Dreams (a moisturizer for day and night)
  • Night Watch ( fabulous night moisturizer and repair for night time)
  • Desert Diva (An Aloe based gel moisturizer for those "too much sun times".)
  • Sulky Sultan (A Bach flower and essential oil Rescue cream) for anxiety and stress.
  • Flower Power (A Bach flower and essential oil Energy cream) for a natural pick me up. -     16 drops Energy Bach Flowers and a little essential oil of you choice. 
Do those sound fun or what? We have all noticed a difference in our own skin since we have used these new face body care products. They are fun to make and fun to use.
