When it comes to facial cream,
I won’t say it’s none of your beeswax
Today I’d like to talk about a comment I got on my homemade facial cream video. Someone wrote in and basically said “none of your beeswax” in facial skin cream. I’d never heard of that before so I thought I’d better check into it. It was hard for me to believe because I got my recipe from Dina Falconi in her book, “Earthly Bodies & Heavenly Hair”. She is an herbalist and founder of Falcon Formulations. And my whole purpose of making the facial cream video was to show women that if I can do it anyone can. I like to try new and different things, and I hope to encourage others to do the same. I’d rather not pay those budget-busting high prices for organic facial creams. I have to use a lot because I have mature, dry skin, and I live in a dry climate. Using a lot and paying a lot is a double whammy I’d like to avoid.
I would never intentionally or accidentally want to harm anyone. So I checked into it and could only find good info about using beeswax on the skin. Then, I watched other wonderful videos from professionals, and amateurs like me, making and sharing their recipes for homemade facial cream. Almost everyone used beeswax. Of course, if you’re allergic to bees, by all means try something else. Maybe coconut oil doesn’t agree with your skin. No problem…use something else. In my video, I recommend educating yourself and getting a good book on skin care. I chose “Earthly Bodies & Heavenly Hair”. There’s a link to it below. Discover how your skin responds to different oils and herbs. Thats how I learned…trial and error. If at first you don’t get the formula right, start over. You’ll find out what works for you.
Some of what I read said beeswax is a very good skin protector and improves the texture of the skin. It contains powerful anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and beneficial antioxident properties for skin. Here’s a link so you can read more about beeswax for yourself.
I hope this helps, and if there is some info out there that clearly shows beeswax is bad for your skin, please send me the link. I truly want to know. It’s my mission to help you keep harmful chemicals out of your body and nourish your skin and body with natural good oils, organic clean foods, herbs, and supplements.
How about you? Do you have a homemade facial cream recipe you’d like to share? I’d love to hear from you. Don’t keep it to yourself and tell me it’s “none of your beeswax”. 🙂
