Wonderful all over body/face cream
14 oz. distilled water
4 oz. vegetable oil or oil blend of your choice - I love Jojoba
1.5 oz. emulsifying wax
1.2 oz. stearic acid
.8 oz citric acid
.2 oz Germaben II
.1 oz. fragrance Oil or essential Oil
2 drops FDC dye of you choice
This is a very light cream good for all body areas.....its especially nice when scented with cucumber and tinted very pale green.
All items used to make cream should be sterilized.
Combine citric acid and water over double boiler water until the citric acid dissolves and then add all the remaining ingredients except fragrance, color, and Germaben II. When the mixture turns a creamy color, pour into a blender and whip off and on until it cools ( this can take quite a while ). I usually whip it for 5 minutes let it cool 10 minutes and so on. Add remaining ingredients and whip some more. You don't want it to get so cool that you can't pour it. This will thicken in jars as it cools more.
Makes approximately 20 ounces of cream. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family and I do.
