California Cold Cream

1/8 tsp. borax powder
1/4 cup distilled water
1 tsp. mashed avocado
1tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. grated lemon zest
1/2 cup avocado oil
2 Tbsp. grated beeswax
Yield: 8 oz.
Dissolve borax in water in a glass measuring cup and set aside.

Mix together the avocado, lemon juice, and lemon zest 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 avocado-lemon mixture and continue stirring.

Pour into a clean container with a lid. The cream will thicken as it cools. Massage a small amount into your skin and tissue or rinse off with warm water.

Note: Because this recipe contains real avocado and lemon, it will not have as long a shelf life as some of the other cold creams. You may want to refrigerate this cream to keep it fresher longer. In the refrigerator it should last for up to four months.
