Skin Cream for Oily Skin- Becky

The Michigan Soldier's Aid Society did a wonderful job of creating a little booklet of 1860 Beauty supplies and how to make them. They presented the booklet with a spa day for women at Hastings last year.

I would like to give you some of the recipes that the wonderful women researched.

Three steps to making your own skin cream:

  1. Melt the waxes and gently heat the oils, slowly pour the oils into the waxes beating constantly.
  2. Warm your scented water to the same temperature as the waxes and oils and add this gradually to the wax and oil mixtures, beating all the time. Leave to cool.
  3. When cool and creamy, beat in any essential oils that you would like to add. Spoon into prepared jars and label.
  4. Record any failures for the next time you make your creams. Good luck!

Sage Astringent:
Sage is a wonderful for oily skins; this astringent will help remove oil from skin without drying it out.
  • 4 tbs dried sage
  • 6 tbs vodka
  • 1/4 tsp borax
  • 3 tbs witch hazel
  • 10 drops glycerin
  1. Macerate the sage in the alcohol for 2 weeks and then strain.
  2. Dissolve the borax in the witch hazel. Stir into the alcohol. Mix in the glycerin and pour into a bottle with a tight fitting lid. shake before each use.
Remember to record your successes and failures!
