We have combined our natural emulsification system with luscious Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, VenaSilk and our Botanical Complex LSC for optimum skin softening, conditioning and moisturization.

  • Part A (water phase) - Using a stainless steel pot such as one of our beakers, heat Rose Hydrosol to 175F
  • Part B (oil phase) – Using a stainless steel pot such as one of our beakers, combine Part B ingredients and heat to melt point (approximately 175F). Remove melted/hot oils from heat.
  • Add preweighed/measured VenaSilk to warm oils and gently stir into oils.
  • Add Part A (water phase) to Part B (oil phase). Add water very, very slowly to the hot oils, then begin mixing vigorously with stick blender or overhead mixer and continue to cool-down. Once emulsion has formed and begins to cool and thicken, switch to wire whisk or other stir tool.
  • Add Part A to B and mix until cooldown. (stickblender can be used). Cool to 50C/122F (or less), add Part C and mix well until completely cool.
  • Notes* Weigh and premix Leucidal Liquid and Microguard. Set aside until cooldown. Our porcelain dishes are perfect for this purpose. Be sure to incorporate completely into cool emulsion.


  • Overhead propeller mixer or stickblender will work. Once cream thickens, switch to handheld wire whisk or other stir tool and stir until completely cool.
  • Viscosity and particle size may vary depending on mixer. High shear mixers such as a stick-blender can be used to create a thicker cream. Propeller mixers or beaters or a hand-held whisk can be also be used to make this recipe.
  • For ease and accuracy in weighing and measuring liquids we recommend our porcelain dishes.
  • For ease and accuracy in weighing and measuring powders such as VenaSilk, we recommend our plastic weigh and pour boats.
  • Batch can be scooped into gallon size freezer bag, sealed tightly. Allow 24 hours before dispensing into bottles or jars.
  • Emulsion will be thick enough for jars, but can be packaged in bottles with pumps.
  • Other essential oils can be used. Other favorites include: Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Rose Geranium
  • This formula is based on The Herbarie ingredients.
