Homemade Facial Cleanser
½ t. borax
¼ c. water
½ c. mineral oil
2 T. beeswax, grated
Dissolve the borax in the ¼ c. water, then set aside. Place oil and grated beeswax in a glass cup. Place the cup in a pan of water that has 1-2 inches of water in it. Heat it until the beeswax is melted. Stir occasionally. It will take around 8-10 minutes for it to melt.
Once the wax is melted, bring the borax/water mixture to almost-boiling. You can put it in the microwave for about 45 seconds, or use the pan of water and heat it like oil/honey mixture. Once it is done, slowly add it to the oil/beeswax mixture, stirring briskly. (This is a neat chemical reaction, so make a science lesson out of it!)
I have been using this for well over five years. At 50 years old, I can’t believe the number of people who comment on how beautiful my complexion is and how young I look. And I do it for just pennies!!!
