I love creams and lotions, and now that I’ve started making my own (my first love being the Dry Skin Relief Cream), I’m having a blast experimenting with different ingredients. This recipe is a variation on my dry skin relief cream – and I think the addition of beeswax pellets helps it to lock in the moisture even more.

DIY Luxurious Moisturizing Cream

I made a huge batch so that I could give some as Christmas gifts, so you may want to half the recipe if you’re just making it for yourself! (It ended up filling 11 2oz glass jars!)

I poured my melted concoction directly into glass jars to make it easier. If you want more of a soft whipped consistency – go ahead and let yours harden in the fridge a bit, then whip it a bit before putting into containers.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Combine all the ingredients except the essential oils in a double boiler, or glass jar/cup that you can put into a pot of water. (I use a 4 cup capacity Pyrex measuring cup.)
  2. On low heat, melt the ingredients together, stirring occasionally.
  3. When the ingredients have liquified, remove from heat and add essential oils.
  4. Pour into jars and let harden.
  5. OR let harden and then whip for a softer consistency.

And since I made some fun labels to go on my jars as gifts РI have included the FREE PRINTABLE for you too! I used Avery 8160 labels for these 2 oz jars from SKS Bottle & Packaging, which are the perfect size for giving as gifts or throwing on your nighstand.
