Luscious Cleansing Cream

This luscious cleansing cream is suitable for dry, mature skins and is excellent for removing stubborn make-up.


  • 1 tablespoon beeswax (grated)
  • ½ cup sweet almond oil
  • 1 tablespoon distilled water
  • 3 drops Frankincense
  • 2 drops Lavender
  • 3 drops Neroli


  • Add the beeswax and the sweet almond oil to a glass pyrex jug. Sit this jug in a fry pan of simmering water and melt ingredients together.
  • Meanwhile add the distilled water to another pyrex jug and sit this in the fry pan of simmering water also.
  • Once the wax and oil mixture has melted together and the water has warmed, slowly start to add the distilled water, drop by drop (preferably using a dropper/pipette) to the wax and oil mixture.
  • After you have added about 1 tablespoon of the water into the wax and oil mixture, remove from the heat.
  • Continue to add the water slowly, mixing continuously with a small whisk.
  • Once the mixture starts to thicken add the essential oils and mix in with the whisk.
  • Divide the cleanser into sterilized glass jars.
  • Cover tightly and label the product, including the date.
