Preparation method:
24 hours before the preparation of the recipe, prepare the mimosa macerate from the ingredients of phase B.
In a bottle or small bowl with a lid, add the mimosa powder and floral water. Mix well and leave to soak in a cool, dark place. Stir occasionally. 
After 24 hours, the maceration is filtered with the help of the reusable filter from our store or with several layers of gauze placed in a small strainer. The filtered solution is left to rest for a few minutes, because the particles that may have still passed through the filter will settle to the base of the glass and can be decanted. The solution will be poured slowly into a Berzelius beaker, so that the deposits remain at the base and the liquid contains as little fiber as possible. The amount of filtered macerate required for the cream is 34 gr.

Preparation of the cream: in a heat-resistant beaker add the ingredients of phase A. Place in a water bath, together with the heat resistant beaker containing the filtered macerate. When both phases have reached 70°C, remove from the heat.
Pour phase B over phase A and mix for 3 minutes. Place the beaker in a bowl of cold water to accelerate the cooling process and continue to mix for 3 more minutes.
Over the emulsion thus obtained cooled to body temperature, add the ingredients of phase C one at a time, with thorough mixing after each. The guaiacwood essential oil and the licorice extract should be fluidized beforehand by a slight heating, so that it can be incorporated and homogenized more easily.
The cream thus prepared is transferred to the dedicated container.

The result is a soft cream, concentrated in active ingredients that act to regenerate, soothe and repair the skin affected by various irritations, eczema, sunburn, psoriasis, superficial wounds. It can be applied by adults and children alike, on any area of the body or face. A small amount of cream is used, which is distributed on the afferent areas, with light, smoothing movements, once a day or several times, as needed.

Options and explanations:

  • chamomile, melissa or lavender water can be used instead of linden water
  • aloe vera, centella or rosa mosqueta oil can be used instead of borage oil
  • a part of calendula oil can be replaced with sea buckthorn oil
  • as a preservative you can also use cosgard (same amount), in which case the cream will not be used for children under 3 years

  • the formula can also be enriched in phase C with 0.5% bisabolol, 0.2% chamomile CO2 extract, 0.5% allantoin or 1% schisandra CO2 extract, decreasing the percentage of guaiacwood essential oil accordingly
