Dating back to roman days a greek physician by the name of Gallen created the cold cream that later was spoilt ( but ever so popular by many women )by the common ponds cold cream that added fillers and preservatives for better shelf life, and over time as women became aware and caught on to the natural revolution slowly fizzled out but still very much around .
This recipe is the gallen version but with the added modern inclusion of honey .
5 ingredients : shea butter, coconut oil ,beeswax, honey, rose essential oil.
Cleanser: apply ,rub in circular montion for a minute, grab a warm washe, hold against your face and wipe off
Day Cream: apply a 5 cent peice and rub in circular montion till rubbed in .Becauce it contains honey it is a great primer .
Night Cream: just apply a little more
Mask: Slather, rubbing in every so often , to all gone ,no rinsing.
Body: a bigger jar can be made to use for dry skin all over your body from face to toes .
Such a great option for travelling just take 1 cream for everything.
Because it is made out of all oils in extremely hot temperatures it can melt a bit so to solidify pop it into the fridge for a bit , but otherwise it can be kept in your bathroom cupbourd for up to 6-12 months.
I love this cream and is proving ever so popular with me making fresh batches weekly it is suited for normal to dry skin ,it nourishes heals and protects your skin , l call it the perfect skinfood.

LOTION BARS Jamaican spice and BUTTERBALLS (lily, cranberry and pomergranate) are my little craze at the moment. I love making them, they smell divine and I find it hard not to eat them. Not only are they cute, convenient with many uses, they are vitamin packed and are great nourishment for your skin. The Jamaican spice aroma will transport you to a tropical island eating dark rum chocolate, listening to a bit of bob or a bit of jack. With the BUTTERBALLS lily, cranberry and pomegranate, l'm thinking PALMCOVE, under the palms by the water, cool breeze, cotton on your skin, arms stretched behind your head, nothing but the sound of the water lapping and the birds chirping. Hang on, its 4pm, HAPPY HOUR, cocktail in hand, butterballs will do me. These little lushes have many uses after bathing, showering, gym, and are great to take away on weekends when you don't want much luggage. Also a great lip balm, massage balm, hand cream and comes in a cute little box.
To use them you just rub between both hands and massage into your skin or cup the bar in your hand and rub directly onto your body. The after shower warmth melts the lotion into your skin. To store them you can pop it back into the box or just leave on the vanity, be careful the hubby doesn't mistake them for soap. On a hot day keep away from direct light, if they melt a bit or become soft be sure to pop them in the fridge for a couple of minutes. The BUTTERBALLS come in a pretty apothecary jar with a tassle and are 8 individually wax wrapped balls for the person that just doesn't want to run out. Both are great little presents for Christmas or just a present for yourself, spoil yourself. Lotion Bars and Butterballs are made of Shea Butter, coconut oil, natural beeswax, vitamin E, sandalwood, patchouli, rose, cinnamon for the Jamaican Spice and for the BUTTERBALLS lily, cranberry and pomegranate essential oils.
