Lemon Butter Creme

Ingredients

¼ c shea butter

1 T argan oil

4 drops lemon essential oil

4 drops tea tree essential oil

Whisk together till creamy and store in a jar. Massage a small amount on face and neck after washing.

 

Lemon essential oil can reduce oiliness, cleanse and tone all in one. It has astringent properties which tighten and reduce pore size as well as reducing excess oil production. It has a deep cleansing action (you may know lemon oil is an excellent and safe household cleaner, so imagine what it can do for your skin) and balances your skin’s natural pH.

Hi Kgomotso, you don’t need to preserve anhydrous products but if you want to, I would recommend Euxyl.
You can find it here: https://essentiallynatural.co.za/products/euxyl-940-pe9010?pos=1&_sid=fd27ca68c&ss=r

You can also add an antioxidant such as Vitamin E oil

Yes please do try it :)

You can add in some geogard but it’s really not necessary as there is no water component.

Beautiful recipe it’s so simple I want to try it.
You mentioned there’s no need for preservatives for oil and butter combinations but Is it fine if I use Geogard 221 in this just to to extend the shelf life?
