    The Bee's Knees Cold Cream

    Source of Recipe

    From "Home Made" by Alexa Lett

    Recipe Introduction

    "This is similar to the traditional commercial cold cream, used to cleanse and smooth the skin."

    List of Ingredients

    Fifty-five ounces white beeswax
    cup almond oil
    tsp borax
    ⅓ cup rose water


    Place the beeswax in a double boiler and add the almond oil.

    Over low heat, melt the wax, stirring constantly to mix the ingredients. Remove from the heat.

    In a small bowl, dissolve the borax in the rose water and slowly pour it into the melted wax and oil, stirring constantly. It will quickly turn milky and thicken. Continue mixing while it cools.

    Once it has thickened, pour into a glass jar or lidded container.
