Blueberry Glycerite

Hey, Beautiful! So today we're making some blueberry glycerite to use in a couple of future projects. I must confess, I'm no glycerite expert, but I found someone online who is. Her name is LisaLise, and her website is Lisalise.com. She is the master of all things "glycerite", so whenever I want to try a new one, I go to her site first.


Why did I want to use blueberry? Well, if you came here from the video, you'll already know many of the great skincare benefits. But just to name a few, they are loaded with antioxidants, specifically vitamin A and retinoids, so it's a great antiaging ingredient. It also lightens and brightens the skin which will help account for a glowing complexion, and it's anti-inflammatory.


OK, yes I know, you're really just here for the formula, so let me get to it! :-D



Blueberry Glycerite (from LisaLise.com)


49.5% Fresh, organic blueberries

50% Glycerin

0.5% Preservative (I used Liquid Germall Plus, so my numbers are a little different form LisaLise's)


Steps:

  1. Only choose the most pristine and perfect blueberries for this glycerite. We don't want any insuing rot to compromise or challenge the preservative.
  2. Thoroughly clean the blueberries, pat dry, and slice in half.
  3. Place blueberries in a clean and sterilized jar.
  4. Pour in the correct amount of glycerin and preservative.
  5. Muddle the fruit a little with a clean and sterilized utensil.
  6. Place the equally cleaned and sterilized lid onto the jar and secure tightly.
  7. Place in a dark corner of the room and shake once daily for about a week.
  8. After a week, strain your glycerite. Do not allow any fruit particles or seeds to remain in the glycerite.
  9. Use within 6 months.
