...appear in public, on occasion... I love how Serafina keeps referring to the "salve of wombat", so I decree this stuff to be the CREAM of WOMBAT! a.k.a Lugol's Super Healing Cream V. 1.0. It's much lighter than the salve, and is absorbed much better. You can definitely smear this stuff all over your lovely faces AND go make your rounds... :) It takes about an hour to be absorbed into facial skin.
BTW, I gave it a test run yesterday while skiing, put it on all over & had no "detox" reactions from any slow absorption of the iodine over time...
2 oz. avocado oil
2 oz. almond oil
3 oz. cocoa butter
1 oz. beeswax
44 drops(don't ask why, I'm fixated on that number) Lugol's
& enough distilled water to add to Lugol's to make 9 oz.
In a glass measuring cup(with oz. marks), measure castor, avocado & almond oils. add cocoa butter to bring measure to 9 oz. Add beeswax to bring measure to 10 oz. place in hot water bath on stove and heat gently. Stir with chopstick til beeswax & cocoa butter are melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool to body temp. In another cup, put in as much Lugol's as you desire and add water to 9 oz. place in hot water bath, bring up to body temp. Good to do this as oil is cooling...
Then, I use a bowl & hand mixer...put Lugol's/water mix in bowl. Turn mixer on to high, slowly add oil blend...depending on what you use to mix(blender, mixer,...) emulsification can take any where from 2- 10 mins....EMULSIFICATION! MAGIC! VOILA! The cream of wombat is good to go, rub it into your sore muscles, allow it to sooth your world-weary soul, feel the warmth..... :) !!!!!
