Somtimes my hands get dry. Chapped and cracking. They can occasionally be so dry they feel like they’re on fire.
At last I have found a lotion that works!
It’s a Homemade Hand Lotion Recipe I found over at A Sonoma Garden. I’m so glad that Kendra posted this recipe – it’s been a skin saver.
Some of the best things about this recipe are:
Best of all it would be the perfect Christmas gift in an adorable mason jar, tied with the bow.
This is my recipe (based on Kendra’s):
I put it in a double boiler and warmed it until all the oil and beeswax were melted. Then I let it cool on the counter and poured it in a jar once lukewarm.
It works great, but there are two things I want to change. I would add more essential oil. The sweet orange I put in it was too soft a scent. And I think next time I might try doing 2 tbsp of shea butter rather then coconut oil or adding just a little bit more beeswax.
This is the best lotion recipe I’ve ever made and I love the fact that it has so few ingredients and I can pronounce all of them.
