Marigold Honey Skin Cream


48 ounces Calendula tea
2.6 ounces emulsifying wax
1 ounce beeswax
1/2 teaspoon honey
1.5 ounces shea butter (refined or unrefined)
1 ounce cocoa butter
2 ounces olive oil
1.5 ounces soy wax
.6 ounces phenonip or Germaben II
40 drops rosewood essential oil
5 drops palmarosa essential oil

This cream is made as a water-in-oil emulsion, meanings, the oils are added to the water instead of adding water to the oil. Create as you would any other lotion or cream, melting all oils and waxes together aside from the water phase. Incorporate preservative and essential oils as the last step.

NOTE: water-in-oil, in this emulsion the oil is the main phase and has water packed into it in microscopically small droplets.
