  • Small funnel
  • 2oz glass pump bottle



  • 1/4 tsp Cera Bellina wax pellets


2-Ingredient Cleansing Oil

  • Pour the MCT oil into a glass measuring cup with a lip for easy pouring. Then, pour in the CreamMaker FLUID and mix until cloudy.
  • Using a funnel, transfer the cleansing oil to a pump bottle.

3-Ingredient Cleansing Oil

  • In a small double boiler pot over low heat, combine MCT oil, CreamMaker FLUID and Cera Bellina wax pellets. (Since this recipe makes such a small quantity, it may be easier to use a small Turkish coffee pot or butter warmer placed over a pot of water to create a makeshift double boiler.)
  • Whisk until liquified, then immediately remove from heat.
  • Once the cleansing oil has cooled, transfer it to a pump bottle using a funnel.


  • This cleansing oil recipe is water-free and requires no preservative.
  • Percentages for CreamMaker FLUID and Cera Bellina are 4% and 1%, respectively.
  • MCT oil has a very long shelf life. CreamMaker FLUID and Cera Bellina wax both have 2 year shelf lives from the date of manufacture. Your oil should last between 1-2 years.
  • I recommend storing your oil in a glass pump bottle. It’s more eco-friendly than plastic and can be reused for future batches!
