Revitalizing Day Cream

Revitalizing Day Cream (suitable for all skin types)

This rich natural face moisturizer recipe has a great healthy mix of avocado and sweet almond oils, and with the revitalizing and refreshing benefits of the lemon and geranium essential oils, it will certainly put a spring in your step.
If you're a sun lover replace the lemon essential oil with lavender, as citrus oil should always be avoided when sunbathing.

What you will need

  • 1 1/2 fl oz (45ml) Sweet Almond Oil
  • 1 fl oz (30ml) Avocado Oil
  • 1/2 oz (15g) Bees Wax
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) Mineral water
  • 2 drops lemon or Lavender essential oil
  • 1 drop Geranium essential oil


Gently melt the oils and wax in a heavy base stainless steel sauce pan.
Warm the mineral water and slowly add it to the oils stirring vigorously
Remove from the heat and stir until the cream reaches room temperature to avoid separation
Spoon the cream into clean glass jars pop the lid on, and shake until completely cool
If you are using a clear glass jar you will need to protect the essential oils in your homemade moisturizers by keeping them out of the day light.
