The Best Body Soufflé
3 tablespoons Sweet Almond Oil
1 tablespoon Cocoa Butter
1 tablespoon Vegetable Glycerin
3 tablespoons Emulsifying Wax
8 ounces Distilled Water
1/2 teaspoon Rosemary Extract
½ teaspoon Vitamin E oil
¼ to ½ teaspoon Hydrolyzed Silk Powder *optional
1. In a glass measuring cup, mix first 4 ingredients. Place in a pan of boiling water to melt (a double boiler works great).
2. Pour the water into a blender (don’t blend yet). Add in your ¼ to ½ tsp. of hydrolyzed silk powder to water and stir with spoon until combined with water.
3. When oils are melted, turn blender on low and slowly pour oils into blender. You should very soon have a thick beautiful cream.
4. Add rosemary extract and vitamin e oil.
5. Scent as desired.
Pour into wide mouth glass jars while warm, cap when cool. Store in refrigerator to prolong shelf life. It is the only homemade cream that leaves no residue on my skin that I have found so far.
