(for hands or face)

This is an easy, if a lit­tle ba­sic, face cream which I found in my 1909 Eco­nomic-Tech­ni­cal Cook­ery book.

Com­bine equal quan­ti­ties of mut­ton fat and glyc­er­ine, add a lit­tle per­fume and mix in a pot over a gen­tle heat un­til warm. Wash your hands and face well with hot wa­ter, then thor­oughly rub in the cream be­fore go­ing to bed.

NB: Lard or any fat taken off meat can be used in­stead of mut­ton fat. Glyc­er­ine is avail­able at the chemist and in­stead of per­fume, use an es­sen­tial oil.
