Mix together the almond oil and beeswax in a ovenproof glass container. Gently heat the oil-wax mixture until the wax has melted. Water bath method suggested.
When the wax has melted, heat the ivy water mixture, but do not boil. Now slowly pour the ivy mixture into the oil mixture.
Pour the entire mixture into a blender and blend on high speed for 1 to 2 minutes, or stir vigorously with a small whisk. Pour the mixture into a clean container and allow to cool completely. You will have a lovely thick, green cream. Yield: 4 oz.
