Olive Oil Make-Up Remover & Cleansing Lotion
This rich lotion is packed with oils and vitamins. You can use it all over your body as a rich night moisturizer and also during the day as a facial moisturizer and eye cream. Yield 6 ounces
¼ tsp baking soda
½ cup distilled water
1 Tbsp Vitamin E oil
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Avocado Oil
½ tsp wheat germ oil
1 tsp liquid lecithin
1 Tbsp grated beeswax
Dissolve the baking soda in the water in a glass measuring cup and set aside.
Mix together the oils, lecithin and beeswax in another glass measuring cup. Place the oil mixture in a glass cup in a pan of water (about 1-2 inches of water) to make a water bath. Heat the oil mixture in a water bath over medium heat until the beeswax is melted, stirring occasionally. When the wax is melted, bring the soda-water mixture almost to boiling. You can do this in the microwave or on top of the stove.
Remove the oil mixture from the water bath. Slowly add the oil mix to the water solution, stirring briskly. Pour the mixture into a clean container with a lid. The lotion will thicken as it cools. Cool completely, then, use all of over your body.
