Homemade cream for bags and eye contour

Ingredients

To make homemade cream for eye contour and bags:

  • 15 ml of coffee infused oil (below you can see how to do it)
  • 15 gr. cocoa butter
  • 21 gr. shea
  • 7 ml of rosehip oil (you can substitute argan oil )
  • 7ml jojoba oil
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 5 drops of chamomile essential oil

Elaboration

First we are going to make the coffee infused oil . Grind 3 tablespoons of coffee beans in the grinder and put 120 ml of olive oil on a low heat and add the ground coffee. Stir the mixture for 3 minutes and turn off the heat. Let the infusion rest until it is at room temperature. If you want the oil to have a more coffee aroma, let it sit for several hours (even overnight). Strain the oil and with the coffee that remains, you can make a spoliant for the body. Of this infusion we will only need 15 ml for this recipe, so you can use the rest to apply it by massaging your legs after showering or even your feet and thus relieve tired legs and feet, since coffee helps to activate blood circulation.

Put in a water bath over low heat with cocoa butter and shea. When it is already melting, turn off the heat and while you are mixing everything well add the coffee oil, jojoba oil and rosehip (or argan) oil. When it is well mixed add the essential oils. Pour the mixture into the container where you are going to keep the cream (preferably in an opaque glass jar).

 

You can apply every day with a gentle massage on the eye contour area.

This cream lasts in perfect condition for up to 1 year.
