Crème De la Rose

My recipe for Crème De la Rose is for a sumptuous all-purpose thick and rich moisturizing cream that can be used on your face, body, hands and feet.  You can even massage a tiny bit into your split ends! I added in rose hydrosol which is wonderful for all skin types.  Both macadamia nut oil and medowfoam seed oil are highly prized for being wonderful at helping the skin regenerate.  These oils are highly protective and easily absorbed into the skin leaving it silky, supple and moisturized. Rosehip seed oil is extremely high in essential fatty acids and works to hydrate skin and protect it from dryness.

Crème De la Rose

28 grams Rose hydrosol
7 grams Shea butter
2 grams Stearic acid
5 grams Vitamin e

1.      Measure out the rose hydrosol and vegetable glycerin into a glass measuring cup and sit in a pot with a few inches of simmering water.
2.      Measure out the macadamia nut oil, meadowfoam seed oil, rosehip seed oil, Shea butter, stearic acid, and emulsifying wax NF into a glass measuring cup and sit it in a pot with a few inches of simmering water.
3.      When both mixtures have reached 150 degrees F, remove from the heat.
4.      Carefully pour the oil mixture into a heat-proof mixing bowl and begin mixing with a hand mixer set on medium speed.  Carefully add in the rose hydrosol and glycerin and continue to mix for 5 minutes. 
5.      Once the mixture cools to under 100 degrees F, mix in the Vitamin E and rose essential oil
6.      Pour your cream into a sterile container and allow to cool completely. Since this recipe does not use a preservative, make sure to store it in the refrigerator.
