Have you tried our moisturizing cream?


I just updated an old post–an epic post– on my recipe for homemade lotion/moisturizing cream. It’s good stuff– all I’ve used for years and my secret for eternal youth and spotless skin. If you haven’t seen it, or haven’t seen it for a while, check it out.

The Whip

  2. Can’t wait to try this. I’m wondering about other oils. Here in SW Wisconsin, we have access to locally-grown high-oleic sunflower oil. Some call it “the olive oil of the midwest.” “its fat content is over 80% monounsaturated (its only close competitor is olive oil, at approximately 70%).” (driftlessorganics.com) Do you think this would work? Or is there something else about olive oil that makes it possible to get the whip?

    • I’m sorry, Sarah– as Michelle points out, I missed your comment somehow. I think using local sunflower oil is a wonderful idea. I hope you ended up giving it a try!

  3. Sarah I see that it’s been a long time since you asked your question but never got a response. I don’t understand why people blog and then ignore their readers questions. I see it all the time. Anyway, I can tell you that sunflower oil would work just fine. It’s actually a bit less greasy feeling on the skin than olive oil so I prefer it in my skincare recipes. It’s very good for acne prone skin or normal skin. 🙂

  4. Haven’t tried it yet, but this exchange of comments has reminded me to get busy. We’re in the dry skin season here, so the time is right. Thanks!
