  • 0.35 oz sunflower oil NOT high in oleic acid
  • 0.18 oz argan oil
  • 0.18 oz hemp seed oil
  • 0.18 oz shea butter
  • 0.18 oz rosehip oil
  • 1.41 oz distilled water
  • 0.18 oz olive emulsifier
  • 0.14 oz Leucidal preservative


  • To a double boiler, add the distilled water along with the rosewater and gently boil while you measure out your oils.
  • Use a kitchen scale to weigh out each and every ingredient.
  • Then, heat the oils and the emulsifier in a double boiler until the emulsifier has completely melted, and all ingredient are combined.
  • While still hot, combine the distilled water and rosewater with the oils and emulsifier mixture. As it cools, the mixture will thicken and become more opaque.
  • If you see that your cream isn't emulsifying properly, that means it's a temperature problem. To fix this, simply heat again in a double boiler, stirring well.
  • Allow the mixture to cool completely before you go ahead and add in the preservative and any essential oils.
  • Pour the moisturizing cream into a clean and disinfected container of your choice.
