Feel Like a Queen: Royal Jelly Face Tightener

While we need to love ourselves as we are, sometimes we want to feel uplifted and look uplifted, too. One day I was experimenting by putting royal jelly in a homemade face cream and I was astonished to see and feel how significantly it tightened my skin when it dried. I looked uplifted!

Royal Jelly is the most nourishing of the bee secretions
because it is designed to nourish the larvae. If a queen bee is needed, a
hatchling is fed only royal jelly, and in large amounts, which morphs a
regular hatchling into a queen. You can get pure, active royal jelly at a
health food store or from a bee keeper.

For skin care, royal jelly tightens the skin and provides many nutrients,
rejuvenating the cells. Here is a skin cream with royal jelly that takes
seconds to make and contains aloe vera, another ingredient renowned for
healing the skin.

Ĺ cup aloe vera gel
1/8 cup vegetable glycerin
Ĺ to 1 teaspoon royal jelly (keep it refrigerated once you have opened the royal jelly container)

Combine the ingredients in a glass jar. Stir to blend. Pat onto your skin and let dry. Keep the remainder in the refrigerator.

You can purchase royal jelly in a creamy formulation that is edible from VitaminShoppe.com or Bee Alive.

Yes, royal jelly is available in pill form, it is dry freezed, created into powder and put into pills. Burt's bees uses it this way. Commercial products must use ingredients in a form that will extend the shelf life and this is why they use it in this form. I'm not sure if it is the best way though.
