Renowned herbalist Rosemary Gladstar provides safe and effective, time-tested natural therapies and herbal remedies in Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health (Storey Publishing, 2013). This comprehensive recipe collection offers a potent prescription for energy, health, and vitality at every age. This homemade face cream recipe was taken from chapter five, “Recipes for Radiant Beauty.”

You can purchase this book from the MOTHER EARTH NEWS store: Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health.

The following recipe makes the most wonderful facial cream I have ever experienced. I have used it in its many variations for many years, smoothing it over every inch of my body, and my skin — now heading into its sixth decade — is still soft and supple as a child’s. (Well, this may be stretching the truth a bit, but it still feels wonderful to me!)

The homemade face cream is rich with natural ingredients. Deeply moisturizing, it provides nourishment and moisture for the skin. And for the final stroke, it is relatively inexpensive to make. This basic formula, though excellent as is, can be further embellished with your own creative spirit. There is plenty of room for creative input. Feel free.
