How to Make Body Moisturizer at Home: Sunflower Body Moisture Cream

Sunflower oil has a great moisturizing effect. Using it will relieve dryness of your skin and at the same time make your skin soft.


  • 4 tsp lanolin (anhydrous)
  • 2 tsp emulsifying wax
  • 2 tsp beeswax
  • 5 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 tsp glycerin
  • 6 tbsp water
  • 4 tsp borax


Melt the oil and waxes together in one bowl by heating and the rest of the ingredients in another. Make sure that the borax is completely dissolved. While still in the heat, slowly add the water to the oils and stir well as you continue to heat for a couple of minutes. Remove from the heat and stir or beat. The cream will slowly whiten and thicken to give you about a cup of rich cream, which is instantly absorbed into the skin. It is good for any type of skin.

How to Make Body Moisturizer at Home: All-purpose Honey Cream

Honey is a natural healer, attracts and conserves moisture, softens coarse and sensitive skin, and brings a glow to any skin. This recipe avoids the stickiness you would expect. It feels a bit tacky at first but is soon absorbed by the skin.

  • 3 tbsp lanolin (anhydrous)
  • ½ tbsp liquid honey
  • 1 tsp lecithin
  • 4 tbsp warm water
  • Perfume oil as needed.

Melt the oils and honey together and slowly add the water, beating fairly fast and continuously for the first minute then slowing down until it cools. Add perfume. This makes about a coup of pale-creamy-colored firm cream which keeps well out of the refrigerator. But remember that if it gets too cold, it separates.
