Organic Rosehip Face Cream

I wanted to share with everybody my DIY (do-it-your self) body care product's that I been  using for a few years now. Natural facial care products and skin care recipes will leave you feeling better than ever before. Although making homemade face cream products from scratch may sound hard, in reality it's very easy:)
I have more recipes for body care like face wash, foot butter cream, body lotion, chapstick. I will be posting these great recipes in the future:)

3 oz oil (olive, avocado or coconut are great choices)
1.5 tablespoons Beeswax
4 oz  rose water, distilled water or herbal tea
4 vitamin E capsules (optional)
1 tsp calendula oil (optional) 

10-15 drops of essential oil for fragrance (I used rose hip seed oil)

Benefits of Rosehip seed oil: it contains Vitamin A, which helps to delay the effects of skin aging, assists with cell regeneration, and promotes collagen and elastin levels to increase.  This results in firmer, smoother, and more youthful skin with greater elasticity.  Rosehip seed oil also contains a high amount of essential fatty acids and Vitamin E, which further promotes healthy skin.  In particular, it is rich in linoleic and linolenic acids, which are important skin nutrients.  Rosehip seed oil has been used successfully to treat the following skin problems:
Stretch marks,UV damage from overexposure to the sun, Scars from surgery, burns, and acne, Eczema ,Psoriasis, Wrinkles and premature skin aging, Hyper-pigmentation, Dermatitis,
Burns, including those from radiation and sunburns, Age spots, Brittle nails, Dry and damaged hair.

I order my stuff from Organic Creations.
In this recipe I used organic Avocado oil and Olive oil cold press. Mix oils in a glass measuring cup. Add vitamin E capsules.
Add shredded beeswax.  (I found mine at Michaels store in the candle making section or order from Organic Creations)
Put in the water bath until all beeswax melts. Then take it out and wait until it cools down.
I added calendula oil to my cream.
When it cools down  add calendula oil and rosehip oil.
Pour rose water into a mixer with an opening on the top. Turn it on.
Then pour oil into the rose water while it's mixing. 
Turn it off and use a spoon to transfer cream into containers.  
I like to use 2 oz jars.  The cream feels so soft and smooth on my face and hands.


  1. Thank you Lea. Sounds sensual. Would love to try use one. Tanya

    1. You're welcome Tanya♥¸.•*´¯*♥ This is a really awesome cream:)

  2. Thanks, Lea, for such a great recipe. Sounds like its a ton of healthy nutrients for the skin. Question: do you think it will be suitable for oily skin? Since it contains oils....

    1. I have oily skin too, it's best to use this cream at night. During the day I use Alba oil free cream. I use my cream for hands too.

  3. I haven’t tried making my own cream as I always buy in an organic store, but why not try it, right? After all, I’m sure that it will be fun if I make one for myself. Although I’ll still be needing to ask my skin specialist… well, just to make sure I’m going to do the right thing! ;) Thanks for sharing this organic rosehip face cream recipe!

    1. You are welcome:)))Hope you will enjoy it:)

  4. Hi Lea,
    I have never made cream with beeswax. Does it it absorb easily or does it leave film on skin? I normally use emulsifying wax but beeswax seems more natural.

    1. Beeswax seems natural to me. It does absorbs easily. I love it:)

  5. Do you have to use emulsifying wax if you are blending oils with the rosewater. I'd heard that beeswax doesn't emulsify.
    Is it best to use both?

    As well as a preservative?

  6. Hi Lea!

    I just made this and I didn't add as much rose water as you did and mine came out thinner than yours? Is it supposed to be a bit on the stiff side or is it basically a lotion consistency? Thanks so much!

    1. Yes, it suppose to be lotion consistency :)
