Old Fashioned Recipes; Wrinkle Cream, Mayonnaise Moisurizer and Oatmeal Cleanser!

I'm snowed in today with a blizzard raging outside, school and work both canceled. 

As I sip coffee and flip through some old depression era recipes I'm content and smiling as I 'rediscover' recipes and idea's from our not-to-distant history but have been lost due to the easy availability of commercial products in their place. 

The last one; oatmeal cleanser, I've actually used many times and I add ground oatmeal to my homemade almond soaps as a great light version of a loofah. 

I salute the good, old fashioned, homemade versions of wrinkle creams and moisturizers.  


Wrinkle Cream 1 oz. white wax 2 oz. strained honey 2 oz. lily bulb juice Melt ingredients together and cool. Apply to the face every night.
