Coconut Cloud Cream

I got the base of this recipe (and probably a majority of my personal care recipes) from this book, Natural Beauty at Home, by Janice Cox. A friend lent it to me (I promise I’ll give it back someday, Jenny!), and it has change my whole personal care budget. I was concocting some mixture one time, and my roommate said she felt like she walked into an episode of Breaking Bad. Anyway, here’s a very legal recipe for a body cream that works wonders!

coconut cloud cream2 tbsp stearic acid powder

1/4 c coconut oil

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup distilled water

5-7 drops lemon essential oil

5-7 drops lavender essential oil

5-7 drops frankincense essential oil

 

Melt the stearic acid and the oil together. You can do this in a water bath on the stove top.

Dissolve the baking soda in the distilled water and heat almost to boiling. (You can do this in the microwave for
about a minute, but I prefer the water bath).

Stir that water solution slowly into the stearic acid – oil mixture. The mixture will foam up in volume nearly double at first. Stir thoroughly.

 

Cool mixture completely, then add the oils (extreme heat changes the property of the oils) and stir. Pour into an airtight – preferable glass – jar and enjoy!
