Her­bal­ist Donna Lee of Cot­tage Hill Herbs shares her recipe for a mois­tur­is­ing cream.

In­gre­di­ents • 100g base cream (see box, right) • 4ml aloe vera liq­uid • 5ml cold pressed apri­cot oil • 5ml hy­drosol of laven­der • 8 drops pure es­sen­tial oil of laven­der Com­bine all in­gre­di­ents and mix thor­oughly. Place into pots.

Note: Aloe vera acts as a catalyst, push­ing other in­gre­di­ents deeper into the tis­sues, in­creas­ing col­la­gen pro­duc­tion, and smooth­ing out lines. It also mois­turises and feeds the skin.
