DIY Anti-Aging Face Cream

Skin Firming Cream Recipe

2 TBL rose hip oil
1 TBL sesame oil
1 TBL avocado oil
1 TBL macadamia nut oil
1 TBL almond oil
1 TBL evening primrose oil
2 TBL raw unfiltered honey
1 oz or 2 TBL beeswax
2 TBL coconut oil
1 TBL cocoa butter
1 tsp lanolin
9 TBL distilled water
2 TBL vegetable glycerin
1/2 tsp borax
2 capsules Marine Greens Sea Algae formula ( opened up and poured out)
5 ml DMAE
2 capsules ubiquinol ( cut open and squeezed into oils ) (you can use COQ10 if you don't have ubiquinol)
1 tsp liquid vitamin C
4 droppers full of vitamin E
2 capsules niacin ( opened and pour out)
1 tsp lecithin
1 dropper liquid B12
8 drops carrot seed essential oil
12 drops jasmine fragrance oil

Put all of the oils, honey, beeswax, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and lanolin in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until everything is melted. It is important to take the pan off of the heat once everything is melted, so that the potency is not removed from some of the ingredients. Cool for a few minutes and then add DMAE, oil from ubiquinol, vitamin E, niacin, lecithin, B12, carrot seed essential oil, and jasmine fragrance oil with a whisk and stir well. Then put ice in a large bowl and put  saucepan in the bowl and whisk all of the ingredients until they are thick, like a salve. Then put all of these ingredients into a blender.

In another pan add water, glycerin, borax, and Marine Greens and heat on low and stir with a whisk until well blended and borax is dissolved. You can do this while you are melting the oils. Let this cool off of the burner while you are whisking the ingredients in the other pan.

After you have put the oils in the blender, you will use the hole in the lid to add the liquid from the other pan. Turn the blender on and slowly start adding the liquid. You will see the cream begin to thicken immediately. You will also have to stop and push the cream from the side of the blender, and stir a little. You may have to make a hole in the middle of the cream so that the liquid can get to the bottom of the blender to mix with the oil. Keep doing this until all of the liquid has been added.

This makes a thick cream for your face and neck. It feels absolutely wonderful. You only use about a pea sized amount two times a day. It helps with your fine lines, crows feet, and sagging.
