DIY Homemade Cream Duchesse Recipe For Beautiful, Soft Hands | Time Honored Tips
Cream Duchesse Recipe:
- Benzoinated mutton tallow - three ounces.
- Oil of sweet almonds - one ounce.
- Glycerin - two drams.
- Rose-water - two drams.
- Oil rose geranium - twenty drops.
Mix the two and stir until cold.
On account of the mutton tallow, which might possibly cause a growth of superfluous hair, this cream is not desirable as a face cosmetic.
The benzoinated mutton tallow can be made by taking one-half pound of the tallow and one-half ounce of the benzoin, and keeping at a high temperature.
