(for normal, dry, sensitive, mature or environmentally damaged skin)
1 Tbsp. Jojoba oil
7 Tbsp. pure Vegetable Shortening
10 drops of Lavender 100% pure Essential Oil (optional)
In a small saucepan over low heat or in a double boiler, warm the oil and shortening until the two have completely melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Add the essential oil and begin to slowly whisk until the mixture begins to thicken and become opaque. Pour into a small glass jar and cap.
Depending on the temperature of your working space, the product may take a couple of hours to completely set up and attain its thick, creamy consistency. If you wish to hasten this, you can place the jar in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. No refrigeration of the finished product is required, but for maximum freshness and potency, use within 6 to 12 months.
