Cucumber Cold Cream

1/4 tsp. borax powder
1 Tbsp. distilled water
1/4 cup mineral oil
1 Tbsp. grated beeswax
1 Tbsp. fresh cucumber juice
(made by liquefying chopped cucumber in the blender and straining off all the solids; the result will be a clear green liquid)
Yield: 8oz.
Dissolve the borax in the water in a glass measuring cup and set aside.

Mix together the oil and beeswax in another glass measuring cup. Place the glass cup in a pan of water, making a water bath. Heat the oil-beeswax mixture in the water bath over medium heat until the beeswax is melted, stirring occasionally.

When the wax is melted, bring the borax-water mixture almost to boiling. Remove the oil-beeswax mixture from the water bath. Slowly add the borax water mixture to it, stirring briskly. Add the cucumber juice to this mixture and stir thoroughly. You can whip the mixture in the blender if you wish.

Cool completely and pour into a clean container with a lid. The cream will thicken as it cools. To use, massage a small amount into your skin and tissue off and rinse with warm water.

 

Note: To prolong the shelf life of this cream , keep it in the refrigerator.
