Creams have been made for hundreds of years and are a lovely way to deliver essential and fixed oils to the mind, body and spirit, but can be tricky to make. A cream may be as simple as beeswax, water and oil, but if you go down the rabbit hole, a cream is called an “emulsion” and beeswax is technically not an emulsifier yet holds a cream together. And adding essential oils into the mix calls for safe dilution practices and consideration of what oils to choose. Hmmmm…..

This detailed, video-based class takes you through the how’s of creating the perfect cream, specifically a “cold cream” and safely incorporating essential oils & hydrosols into the formulation. Look forward to covering the following topics:

  • Benefits of creams: why choose a cream over another delivery method?
  • Deep-dive on emulsions & why beeswax is not an emulsifier but still works.
  • Preservatives, Antioxidants & when they are needed.
  • Ingredient deep-dive: water phase, fixed (base) oil phase and essential oils.
  • Essential oil dilution guidelines.
  • Formulation guidelines & proportions.
  • Step-by-step instruction on making a cold cream.
  • Tips, hints and much more!

This class gives you access to a 2 hour video to watch at your own pace and come back to at any time. You’ll also have access to a file that includes key points from the class along with a detailed article I wrote on making an aromatherapy cream and considering preservatives.
