How To make it all-weather?

While the cream that you have made will last throughout winter, it will melt during summers. 

To make it last during summers, simply add about 10 g of beeswax (buy here) during Step 2.

Rest everything is the same.

With that your all-weather DIY homemade organic cream/body butter is ready.

Here’s a virtual pat on your back!

Before We Wind Up

You’ve just now learnt how to make cream at home. Chances are, you’d be bubbling with queries, right?

Q 1 – How long with this cream stay afresh?

A 1 – Unless a single drop of water falls into the cream, it’ll stay useable for at least a year easily.

It has only oils and a butter.

No aqua (water) base is added hence it doesn’t require any preservatives.

Q 2 – Who all can use it?

A 2 – Anyone willing to go au naturel and desirous of flaunting smooth, crack-free and supple skin – man, woman or child.

Q 3 – If I do not add beeswax, what am I losing out on?

A 3 – Beeswax is added to provide a mould to the cream.

If you do not add it, your cream will stay a liquid which is still useable.

However, carrying it while travelling won’t be possible then.

Q 4 – Can I use it on my facial skin?

A 4 – This cream doesn’t contain cocoa butter (which is actually comedogenic) or coconut oil (which is highly comedogenic but still people use it ignorantly on their face).

Thus, it won’t trigger pimples.

However, just to be on the safe side, I recommend its use on face only if you have dry or normal skin that too only a pea-sized amount should be applied.

How To Make Cream At Home: Doing The Math

Sum of prices of all the ingredients = 600 + 180 + 300 = 1,080/- INR

Using 50 g of Kokum butter, 20 ml of Flaxseed oil and 5 ml of Lavender essential oil, cost of one jar of your cream = 60 + 36 + 100 = 196/- INR

If you add beeswax, cost = 216/- INR which is way less than what any organic cream in the market comes for.

Makes sense to make one at home?

You decide!

      By the way, I tried your DIY cuticle oil. It worked well. I will tweak it a little so that it bears an aroma too 🙂
