How to do it?

You know how I talk about recipes getting easier and simpler? So here we have another step on the way to simplification - you mix the whole cream while cold.

Put shea butter, jojoba and hemp oil in a ratio of 5:1:1 (by volume, not weight) into a container (ideally pre-wiped with a napkin sprinkled with grapefruit extract or EO), which you won't kill with a whisk afterwards. Because I made a lot of cream (one for one of you, one for myself, one for mom, one for Verča), I had a lot of fun with the measuring spatula.

If you have vitamin E on hand, be sure to add two or three milliliters of it. It acts as a preservative and is absolutely fantastic for the skin - I used it topically undiluted when I had the biggest skin problems and it really speeds up healing without drying out the skin.

Finally, add essential oils. Here, I slightly deviated from the recipe in two cases. Instead of pine, you will find EO from black spruce and hemp EO in the original, and vetiver (Indian grass) instead of lavender. I adapted the recipe in such a way that everything was available and at the same time the effects of the cream were preserved - it should not be harmful to replace it, on the contrary (lavender improves the smell even more).

I added 15 drops of rosemary EO, 15 drops of pine EO, 10 drops of cedar and 5 drops of lavender EO to my dose (150 ml of butter + 30 and 30 ml of oils).

It's time for a classic whisk, which will combine everything into a thick cream. For perfect cleanliness, first wipe the whisks with a napkin sprinkled with grapefruit extract or EO, then just whip like a fiend.

The result is consistently great, at least from my point of view ideal. According to Verča and the photos from her blog, the original is quite stiff, probably more shea butter - well, you don't have to spread or heat this stuff in your hands.

Now all you have to do is transfer everything into cups and enjoy!

Use the cream on wet skin - the water on the surface of your face will turn the cream into an emulsion, which is perfectly absorbed and the skin will be silky, but not greasy. By the way, the amount in the last photo is all I need for my entire face.

You can expect a decent load of hydration and vitamins, preservation of skin elasticity and an SPF of about six. Jojoba oil is especially valued due to the fact that its structure is brilliantly similar to human sebum and therefore it is natural for the skin and penetrates deep into its layers, where it does amazing things for us - in addition to intensive hydration, for example, it regulates the production of sebum, so everyone will benefit from it skin types. Hemp oil prevents premature aging of the skin and can fight acne and eczema.

The combo of essential oils then act as antioxidant components and fight skin inflammation. Lavender accelerates healing, soothes the skin and takes care of acne, eczema and wrinkles; pine is also popular with dermatologists as a solution for pimples, eczema, skin fungus, sores or itchiness; rosemary is also popular for all skin problems, in addition, it helps the proper circulation of the skin and thus balances its tone, but also fights against dry areas. Cedar is strongly antiseptic and helps regulate sebum production.

Oh, and you know what else? There's nothing wrong with that woody-herbal scent.

For me, the cream does exactly what I expect from it - I don't get pimples (before I didn't tolerate creams with zinc, now I can see that it works without it - not that I mind, but after applying the cream I was always whiter, so I appreciate that I can also have non-makeup days), my skin is perfectly hydrated all day, I can even proudly write that I have blackheads.
