      Cucumber Cold Cream by Janice Cox
      The natural astringent powers of cucumber make this mild cold cream very
      effective…to prolong the shelf-life of this cream, place it in the
      refrigerator.

      INGREDIENTS
      1/4 teaspoon borax powder
      1 Tablespoon distilled water
      1/4 cup mineral oil
      1 Tablespoon grated beeswax
      1 Tablespoon fresh cucumber juice (made by liquefying a chopped cucumber
      in the blender and straining off the juice)

      INSTRUCTIONS

      Dissolve the borax in the water in a glass measuring cup and set aside.

      Mix together the oil and beeswax in another glass measuring cup.

      Place the glass cup in a pan of water. Heat the oil-beeswax mixture in the
      water bath over medium heat until the beeswax is fully melted.

      When the wax is melted, bring the borax water to almost boiling. Remove the
      oil-beeswax from the heat and slowly pour in the borax-water while stirring
      briskly.

      Add the cucumber juice to this mixture and stir thoroughly. You can whip the
      mixture in the blender if you wish.

      Cool completely and pour into a clean container with a lid.

      The cream will thicken as it cools. To use, massage a small amount into your
      skin and tissue off or rinse off with warm water.
