Homemade skin care recipes


  • Beeswax (1 tablespoon)
  • Honey (1 tablespoon)
  • Olive oil (2 tablespoon)
  • Almond oil (2 tablespoon)
  • Distilled water (1 tablespoon)

Essential oils:


  • In a small saucepan over low heat, warm beeswax, honey, almond and olive oils, and distilled water. Stir well until beeswax has melted.
  • Remove from heat and allow the mix to cool. Keep on stirring until the mixture begins to thicken. It should be soft.
  • Add the essential oils and mix.
  • Put the lotion in storage container. Allow the lotion to cool for about 30 minutes before putting the lid on.
  • You don't need to keep it in the fridge unless you want to keep it for more than 1 month. Water can begin to separate from the lotion after a few days but this is normal.

Author's note

Researchers reported that a natural combination of honey, olive oil, and beeswax can provide significant benefit to people suffering from eczema or psoriasis. A honey mixture may decrease the need for corticosteroids... See this article:
This cream is anti-inflammatory as well as anti-bacterial. If you suffer from an overgrowth of candida, these ingredients are good altogether to fight against yeast infection.

Hi, I made this cream last night and absolutely love it, however, I was hoping you could tell me what I could add to it to make it less tacky after applying?
