This is really a moisture bomb, to which no preservatives or coloring agents have been added. Simply completely natural and so incredibly fun to make your own cream so you know exactly what it contains.
I thought this would be difficult to make, but it really wasn't.
The cream is quite greasy, but I solved that by putting it on while I was still in the shower and wet. Then it's easy to apply the cream, and I could dry myself as usual. And the feeling after applying it….. Absolutely magical in my opinion!

I found this incredibly good recipe in a book I bought in Sweden. I can safely recommend this book, there are an incredible number of good recipes in it.


The recipe yields about 225 ml of cream:

3 g beeswax
60 g shea butter
33 g of cocoa butter
56 g almond oil
1 teaspoon of honey
10-30 drops of essential oils, such as lemon or lavender

After measuring out all the ingredients, place them in a hot water bath until everything has melted. Then put it all in the fridge for about 2 hours.
Then take it out and beat it all with an immersion blender until it becomes a fluffy consistency.
Put the cream in a jar with a wide opening.
The cream has a shelf life of around 6 months at room temperature, but please do not store it too hot so it melts.

And if you have some cocoa butter left, this is a perfect lip balm in itself.

All the ingredients should be easy to get hold of in a health food store.

And with all these wonderful ingredients, I have found my dream cream 😍
