Use the right kitchen scale to get it done rightly. You can follow this kitchen scale; this is the one I use for mine.


  1. Weigh all the ingredients separately
  2. You should then combine all the oil, liquid, and the emulsifying wax in a saucepan. You should also add stearic and citric acid.
  3. Heat the mixture above in a stove and ensure that the heat added is not too low. Just ensure that the mixture is completely melted. As the heat melts the mixture, stir continuously.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the stove. Continue to stir the mixture until it is partially relaxed.
  5. Add some honey, rosemary extract, which will act as an antioxidant. This is also the time to add the powder ingredients, essential oils, and vitamin E oil.
  6. Keep stirring until the mixture is creamy and then pour into a storage container.
  7. You can then begin to apply the cream in the evening on the skin’s affected part. You can apply this as a spot remover, too, mainly before you use your makeup.
