Bridget Kitley’s Herb Moisturizer

I first made this recipe in May 2014 as I was so tired of the moisturisers on the market that didn’t do anything to moisturise my dry skin, so I decided to make my own.  Since making it, it seems to assist greatly in marks on the skin that laser cannot remove, eczema, assist and allieviates psoriasis, Lychnis planus, skin rashes, irritations, sore skin, sunburn and a friend even told me that it healed her haemmorhoids!!!!! 

I also have to add there are no additives added to this cream, it is completely natural and absolutely no Orangutans lost their home as a result of this cream being made. People even with very sensitive skins have benefited from this product.  A 50 ml jar lasts a long time as it is so moisturising. One can noticeably see the difference in people literally days after using this cream.  Their skin looks fresher, healthy and a more even skin tone develops as well as looking very moisturised.
