1/4-teaspoon borax powder
1/4-cup fractionated coconut oil or any light oil
1 tablespoon distilled water
1-tablespoon fresh cucumber juice
8 drops Grapefruit Seed Extract
Cucumber Fragrance oil if desired
Jade or emerald mica for color if desired
Dissolve borax in the water and add the grapefruit seed extract. Mix together oil and beeswax in another cup. Place the glass cup in a pan of water (about 1-2 inches of water). Heat the oil-beeswax mixture in the water bath over medium heat until beeswax is melted, stirring occasionally. Bring this mixture almost to boiling. Remove the mixture from the water bath. Slowly add the borax-water mixture to it. Add the cucumber juice and stir thoroughly. You can whip the mixture in the blender. Add the Fragrance oil if using and cool completely. Take a small amount of cream and mix the mica into it removing all of the clumps. Add the colored cream back to the main batch and blend well.
