2g (1%) Preservative 12 (aromantic.co.uk) Few drops of Essential oil, e.g. Geranium (optional)
*These hydrosols are good for both normal/dry and oily skin but there are an array on offer and you can always change these around and try new ones. Geranium hydrosol is also very nice and Rosemary is also good for acne prone skin. You might just want to add as few as possible to save on postage!
Weigh the hydrosols into a Pyrex jug
Weigh out the distilled water and cucumber powder and add to small bowl. Weigh out the distilled water and Aloe Vera powder and add to same small bowl.
Add both the cucumber and aloe blends into the Pyrex jug with hydrosols.
Heat the Pyrex jug in a pan of hot water to 60c, stirring occasionally as the Aloe and cucumber powders melt (or very gently in the microwave checking regularly being careful not to overheat the mixture).
Once it has reached 60c, take it off the stove and allow it to cool down to around 45c.
Add the Glycerin, Phyto keratin, panthenol, Calendula extract and preservative.
Give it a good stir. Once it has cooled down a little more, pour into bottles and enjoy!
