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
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)
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
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.
