  1. Looking forward to making this one. I love the simplicity. My life has changed so much by using these reciipes. I have gifted a number of books as well. ?

  2. This is the second time I have made this. I love how it only needs a few ingredients and is simple and does the job. Thank you!

  3. I have just made this, it was so easy and it feels lovely. My question is about the use of Arrowroot flour… does this have any benefits for the skin or is it a thickener?
    BTW I accidentally used Tapioca flour ??‍♀️… feels ok but not sure if it has the same benefits?
    Thanks so much Krissy, love your book!

    • Hey, thanks for the feedback! The arrowroot can be substituted with tapioca (they’re so similar) or cornflour, no worries. And it’s added to thicken it and make it less greasy 🙂

    • I haven’t done this myself yet. I don’t knowhow the zinc will distribute through it. You can certainly give it a shot – let me know how you go.

  4. Hi I love seeing all your new recipes and this one I am definitely keen to try!!
    I have a question as to where you source your Rose Geranium oils from??

    • Hi Erin, I have had nothing but positive reviews on this recipe, some coming in the day I posted it, so I am sure you’ll love it! I got mine (Springfields brand) from Go Vita x

    • It gives it some structure (so it isn’t too runny) and provides a protective barrier when applied to skin, locking in moisture without suffocating skin.

      • Even out of the fridge without vitamin e oil as a preservative?
        Can you recommend which vitamin e oil type is good to act as an anti-oxidant please?
        Annnnd, have you created a body lotion using water before?

        Thank you very much Krissy. Just bought your book!

        • You can add Vitamin E oil, yes, a tsp or two. This recipe will last a while at room temp. I have a magnesium cream that uses some water, but as soon as water is introduced, shelf life goes down so I prefer to stick with only oils/butters in balms and creams. Thanks for buying my book! x
