Organic Do it Yourself Night Cream

  • A handful of dried rose petals
  • 1 oz raw coconut oil
  • 3/4 oz beeswax
  • 1 1/2 oz
  • 2 teaspoons organic lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon frankincense oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon essential oil
  • Measuring jug
  • Sieve
  • Large, heavy – based Stainless steel saucepan
  • Wooden spoon
  • Either dark or clear glass lids to store!


  1. With the rose flowers and 10 fl oz boiling water, make an herbal infusion. A herbal infusion is made by placing the flowers into a jug, pouring boiling water over them and then leaving it covered to cool. The mixture then needs to be strained and kept in the fridge.
  2. In a large heavy – based stainless steel saucepan, melt the beeswax. Add the coconut and sweet almond oils, beating steadily with a wooden spoon or whisk, and then add 2 tablespoons of the herbal infusion and the lemon juice in a slow trickle.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and keep stirring until the cream has cooled to almost body temperature. Add the frankincense and lemon essential oils and then give it another good stir. Pour the cream into jars and shake until the cream has cooled thoroughly. To preserve the essential oils, clear jars need to be kept in a dark place. Add to your nighttime cleansing ritual. Wash off all make up and gently rub cream in a circular motion, going from jaw to cheekbones, around your eyes and over your forehead, neck, even your hands!
