- Cream base. It is described as base because it is raw and pure, with no additives. So it has no oils, extracts, color or fragrance added to it. It is meant to be a base to which you add your own additives to make the cream or lotion that you desire. For example, if you wish to make an anti-aging cream, you just add to it the oils and extracts that help to reduce wrinkles and fine lines like this cream here.
- Wheat germ oil
- Rose extract. Consider making your own at home following the guidelines outlined in this article. Keep in mind that preparing the extract will require one month before it’s ready to be incorporated into your homemade beauty products.
- Liquid oily color, soluble in oils, red color
- Rose fragrance oil
Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.
- Scale to measure quantities
- Wooden popsicle sticks
- Small containers to store your DIY Hand Cream with Rose Extract
Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.
Steps: DIY Hand Cream with Rose Extract
1- Start by putting 100 grams (3.52 oz) of pure cream base in a bowl.
2- Add 2-3 drops of red liquid oily color. This liquid color is soluble in oils. If you have oily color powder instead, mix some with sweet almond oil. Keep in mind that the ideal hand and body cream often features a mild color.
3- Mix the color with the base cream thoroughly using a wooden popsicle stick.
4- Add 2 grams (0.07 oz) of rose extract.
5- Add 5 grams (0.17 oz) of wheat germ oil.
6- Mix thoroughly the contents with a whisk.
7- Add 3 grams (0.10 oz) of rose fragrance oil. Use this quantity if the fragrance oil is normal or diluted. If the fragrance oil is concentrated, add 3 drops only.
8- Mix the contents rigorously with a whisk.
9- Scoop the cream into one or more small containers. It is now ready for use.
