Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, glove and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. In a large glass mixing bowl, add 24 oz. of water.
  3. To the water, add the stearic acid and emulsifying wax.
  4. Place bowl in microwave and heat until stearic acid and emulsifying wax are completely melted. Microwave for 3 minutes. If stearic and e-wax are not melted, microwave for another minute. This may need to be repeated until ingredients are completely melted.
  5. Water will be cloudy when ingredients have completely melted.
  6. To the water mixture, add in the Almond Butter Blend, Evening Primrose Oil and Rose Hip Seed Oil. Gently stir to allow the butter to soften a little in the warm water.
  7. Using a hand mixer, begin to blend. Continue blending until the mixture starts to thicken. This may take several minutes.
  8. Add Vitamin E, Isopropyl Myristate and Lemon Essential Oil. Continue blending.
  9. Check temperature to be sure it is under 176°F. Adding the Optiphen Plus at a higher temperature will inactivate the preservative.
  10. Add Optiphen Plus and blend thoroughly for an additional 30 seconds.
  11. Using a spatula, scoop 4 oz. of cream into each jar. The cream will thicken a little after cooling.
  12. Let the cream completely cool before capping so that condensation does not form inside the jar.
  13. Label product accordingly.
