Glycerine & Rosewater cleansing cream

Most recipes for creams follow this procedure. Waxes are melted in one
container while oils are warmed in another. All ingredients should be
about the same temperature when you mix them together or the mixture
may curdle. You can substitute any suitable herbal infusion for the
rosewater.
