I have since used this cream for my face and found it to not only prevent skin damage and wrinkles but to heal and keep moisture in the delicate skin of the face. My Mom found it to actually reverse her wrinkles since she has a silly habit of using new face creams on only half of her face to see if they really work. You can see the results of her experiment below, this was after using the cream for 3 weeks. I have also used this as a hand and body lotion, for dry patches of skin, rashes, eczema and all types of skin conditions.
.85 oz. coconut oil
.45 oz. cocoa butter
.40 oz. mango butter
1/4 tsp. lanolin
3/4 cup Calendula infused olive oil
Add to a small saucepan and melt over very low heat. Pour into a blender and let sit until it becomes an opaque color with a pudding like consistency.
1 tsp. of Ageless essential oil blend from Butterfly Express (or create your own blend)
1 tsp. Vitamin E oil
Add the following ingredients into a separate measuring cup:
2/3 cup distilled water (or hydrosol)
1/3 cup aloe vera liquid (I prefer the Mountain Rose Herbs aloe vera)
Turn on the blender and slowly pour the liquid mixture while it is going. It may get so thick the blender chugs and doesn't want to mix, just turn it off, add more liquid if you still have some left, give it a stir and turn it on again. I use a Blendtec and it comes with a twister jar that allows me to easily turn the contents while blending so if you happen to have a Blendtec I highly recommend the twister jar attachment. Continue blending until the liquid is fully incorporated and you have a rich, thick, cream.
Where to Get Ingredients
*Just a quick note that I am not affliliated with these businesses, I just really love Mountain Rose Herbs and love the deals that Bulk Apothecary offers.
