Face Creams

Rosemary Gladstar

I like to make face cream for my family and me.  I usually make 1 - 2 quarts of rose hip infused oils to make my creams with per season.  After keeping enough for myself and mailing tubs to my family, I sell whatever is left at the farmer's markets.  

There are a tremendous amount of websites about making your own cream and it's a fun thing to do.  I use Rosemary Gladstar's base recipe from her book Herbal Recipes and have tested my recipes on willing family members for 3 years.  My Aunt Cynthi commissioned my first creams and was a chief tester and so was my Mom and grandmother.  My brother Jared and Pam bought me Rosemary's book.  So it was a family collaboration.
