Rich moisturizer for normal skin


The following recipe uses a moisturizing base cream, which has no fragrance, colour or other additives. One advantage of using a base cream is that home—made moisturizers do not always homogenize completely and the cream may separate a little, although you can still use it. This moisturizer is suitable for normal skins.



  • 150 ml (5 fI oz) of moisturizing base cream

  • A large glass jar

  • A chopstick

  • 5 ml (1 tsp) each of rose water and avocado oil

  • 4 drops each of german chamomile, rose absolute, neroli and lavender

  • 3 drops each of palmarosa and rosewood




  1. Measure the moisturizing base cream into the glass jar. Using the chopstick, stir in the rose water and avocado oil.

  2. Add the german chamomile, rose absolute, neroli and lavender, and then the palmarosa and rosewood. Stir well to incorporate them thoroughly into the moisturizer.
