Many thanks to Nicole Churchward for supplying this recipe.

This is the a wonderful soak in cream that is cool and soothing, and just an all round good moisturizing cream.

Emu oil has been used for its healing properties, but macadamia oil (calendula infused) can be substituted if you prefer.

Ingredients: 

Phase A
  Avocado Oil 4g
  Emu oil (or macadamia) 3g
  Almond Oil 4g
  Shea Butter 4g
  Mango Butter 2g
  Jojoba Oil 4g
  Evening Primrose Oil 1g

Phase B
  Glycerine 5g
  Demineralised Water 45g
  Aloe Vera Gel 20g
  Emulsifying Wax 5g
  Stearic Acid 2g

Phase C (add any or all when cream has cooled below 40 deg)
  Vitamin E 1g
  Sodium Lactate can be used instead of glycerine 2g instead of 5g and added in the Phase C instead of B
   Essential Oil/Fragrance Oil can be used at 2% of mix above.
  Preservative of choice at recommended amounts
  Talc - 2g can be added for a firmer less greasy feel cream.


Directions:

Heat Phase A and B separately to about 70ÂșC . Heat the oils in a deep dish double boiler and the B phase in a jug in the microwave oven.

When oils and waxes are fully melted remove from the water (bottom pan).

Add the heated water to the oils in a steady fast flowing stream while stirring (don't pour to slow or it can cause separation later on.)

Mix with a stick blender, and continue with short bursts every few minutes until the mix thickens and cools.

Add your desired ingredients from Phase C.
