Pomatum is a perfumed ointment used for the hair, face, and skin. It can be a salve made with beeswax and oils (like spermaceti -jojoba- or almond) which produces a more stable compound, particularly in the heat and for traveling.

This recipe was titled, " A Pomatum for Wrinkles" It called for the juice of white lily roots, honey, white wax and make a pomatum from them. Lily has been used throughout history in skin care regiments of the wealthy.
The instructions read, "It fhould be applied every night, and not wiped off till the next morning."
You can use this natural method to treat wrinkles during the day or before bed. Various forms of this recipe have been in the shop for a while now. We had a lot of requests to take the original recipe and make it softer. So we did. We kept the original ingredients and added some organic almond oil, natural white lily oil and Vit. E. The original recipe called for the water of a white lily root. We took powered lily root and soaked it so we can have a all year round recipe instead of seasonal. Because of this- there may be some traces of the powered lily root. Gently rub in this soft pomatum- sleep with it and take it off in the morning or even wear it during the day as a moisturizer. Watch those wrinkles disappear!
Lily Oil is great for those with sensitive skin, It has been proven to help treat wrinkles, dry skin, spider veins, It is also recommended for use under the eye, treating burns and preventing the formation of scar tissue.

As with any historical pomatum the uses are vast. So feel free to use it for other applications not than just for your wrinkles.
