Banish Wrinkles Face Cream

 This is an easy recipe to make, only takes a few minutes and works like a charm. The ingredients are available on Amazon, or Swanson Vitamins, I use Amazon as it gets you to the other sites quickly.
  You will need:   3 teaspoons of Jojoba oil
                             3 teaspoons of Apricot Kernal Oil
                             1 teaspoon grated beeswax
                             4 teaspoons rose water
                             1/4 teaspoon borax( laundry aisle, grocery store)
                             5 drops carrot seed essential oil
  I am all about easy and little clean up so I save tomato sauce cans or small soup cans, wash with hot soapy water and use as my containers. You will need a small bowl of lots of ice and some water for quick cooling.
  In the first can, put the jojoba oil, apricot kernal oil and beeswax. The smaller you grate the wax the quicker it melts. With a wooden stir stick, I use barbecue wooden skewers, stir these  together in a small pan with about an inch of boiling water. remove with tongs and set aside. Put the rosewater and borax in the second can and heat  stirring until the borax melts. Remove from heat.
  Next with a small whisk, also found on Amazon, put the can with beeswax and oils in the ice water bath and start whipping, when it begins to thicken and turn white, slowly add the rosewater and borax. Keep whipping til thick and creamy. When cool, add the carrot seed oil and blend. Store in small jar, I use pimento or garlic jars, and keep in frig. Toss the cans, dump the water, easy clean up and great skin cream.
