Submitted By:

Melissa of Milan, TN

Ingredients:

1 oz Sweet almond oil
1 oz Apricot Kernel oil
1 oz Grapeseed oil
.6 oz Emulsifying Wax
.3 oz Stearic acid
1/8 tsp citric acid
26 oz distilled water
1 oz Glycerin
4 Vitamin E capsules
Preservative at correct amount
.3 oz Fragrance

Instructions:

In a microwave-safe bowl, heat almond and apricot kernel oils, e-wax and stearic until melted. Stir in grapeseed oil. In a separate bowl, mix water and citric acid and heat in microwave. Add oil mixture to water mixture and blend with a stick blender to ensure complete emulsification. Allow to cool several minutes. Add vitamin E, glycerin and preservative and mix well. Fragrance as desired. I fragrance mine by the bottle in lieu of a whole batch. You may use any combination of light oils to make 3 ounces. Aloe vera may be substituted for a portion of the water and added after heating the water and citric acid.

Customer Testimonial

"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
