You may have caught the buzz about a skin cream called Egyptian Magic. The ingredients, according to the label, are olive oil, bees wax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, bee propolis, and divine love. (Who knew you could bottle that? That’s one secret I need to look into!)
I like Egyptian Magic, but I make a homemade version that is less expensive, gives great results and smells wonderful. Science happens to be on its side, too. Using the same recipe I divulge, medical studies have examined the cream’s effectiveness for skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, and even diaper rash. (There’s more about these studies in my book.)
It’s easy to make my homemade version for about 75 % below the retail price of Egyptian Magic. Look for the free recipe on my downloads page, “Honey, Olive Oil & Beeswax Skin Cream.”
The real magic in the recipe is:
- Honey: loaded with enzymes, minerals and amino acids, honey has been studied for use in wound healing and is a favorite among celebrities for its ability to plump up fine lines and wrinkles.
- Olive oil: packed with phytonutrients and antioxidants, olive oil makes a fabulous moisturizer that won’t clog pores. Studies continue to be done that highlight how good olive oil is for us, inside and out.
- Beeswax: a natural barrier that helps keep the nourishing ingredients close to the skin.
The ingredients are made from living sources, not “dead” chemicals cranked out in some factory. Try it on your dry skin, heels, and as a rich under eye night cream.
It’s always fun to see science catching up to what the ancients knew. And now you’re in on the secret, too!
