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.

To use: Before showering, take a small amount of the ivy massage cream in your hand and massage well into your body. Give special attention to your legs, hips, buttocks. In the shower, using a clean cotton wash cloth, scrub your whole body with warm water. Before leaving the shower. Rinse your body with the coldest water you can stand.
