    This is one of my favorite face creams. when I first made it back in 1998, I recorded these words next to the recipe: "Incredible Cream, Simply Incredible!" What else is left to say?

    Blending Procedure:

    1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a heat proof (I use Pyrex) 16 oz. glass measuring cup. Place the mixture in a hot water bath until the waxes are completely melted. Remove from heat. Add the stearic acid and emulsifying wax and stir well to incorporate. Set aside.

    2. In a separate Pyrex cup, combine the rose hydrosol, borax and xanthan gum. Place the mixture in a bath until for about 10 minutes to warm the mix and dissolve the borax. (The borax will not dissolve completely until you stir it in; see next step.) Remove from heat and set aside momentarily.

    3. Add the neroli wax and rose concrete to the oil/wax mixture. If you are using neither of those ingredients, skip this step.

    4. Stir the oils/waxes together to make sure they are evenly combined.

    5. In the separate container, stir the water ingredients to make sure they are evenly combined.

    6. Begin stirring the oil/wax mixture with an electric mixer and add the water mixture as you stir. You will see the mixture begin to thicken as you blend it. Continue mixing until until Road Map Relief is thick and rich. This may take up to 20 minutes. Add the aromatic oils after the cream forms and stir gently to incorporate. Pour into clean jars.

    7. Store in the fridge between uses if you'd like to extend freshness.


    "I had to alter the recipe slightly, as I didn't have all the ingredients (rose concrete and beeswax absolute), but the texture of this cream is soooooooooo nice! Love it!"
