CARROT AND COCONUT Cleansing Cream
Originally, I wanted to create a rich cleansing cream, but the recipe got tastier and tastier, so I ended up with something delicious enough to put on top of a muffin.
2 tablespoons semolina
2 tablespoons fine brown sugar
1 cup organic orange water
1/2 ounce coconut oil
1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin
10 drops natural vanilla extract
5 drops carrot seed oil (optional)
1,000 IU vitamin E
Carefully heat the orange water in a stainless steel saucepan until hot but not boiling and set aside. Using a double-boiler method melt coconut oil and glycerin until liquid. Pour the hot orange water into the melted oils, beating with a fork until fluffy and uniform. When the mixture cools down to being pleasantly warm to touch add sugar and semolina. When the mixture is almost cool, adding vanilla extract, carrot seed oils and vitamin E. Blend thoroughly, transfer into a jar, and resist the urge to eat.
Massage 1/2 teaspoon gently into dry skin using circular motions. Rinse off with warm water and repeat if necessary.
