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.

Heat the tallow and oil of almonds in one vessel and the other three ingredients in another. 

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.
