Rich Skin Cream

2 1/2 oz (weight) beeswax
2/3 cup baby oil
1 tsp borax (sodium borate, C.P.)
4 oz (weight) anhydrous lanolin
3/4 cup water
Fragrant essential oil (optional)

Chemically pure borax, which is required for cosmetics, is sold by drug stores. In a microwave or double boiler melt the oil, lanolin and beeswax to 160 degrees F. Heat the borax and water in a separate container to 160 degrees F. Be sure the borax is dissolved and the wax is melted. Add the water mixture to the oil mixture while stirring briskly. When white cream forms, stir slowly until the mixture cools to 100 degrees F. Pour it into small wide-mouth jars.
