The plunging temperatures and bitter winds of winter are wreaking havoc on my sensitive skin leaving it thirsting for hydration and protection. Unfortunately the products found in-store are either chock full of chemicals or organic yet far too expensive, fortunately it’s a snap to whip up your own natural DIY Hand Cream – A Soothing Salve for Dry Skin:
Grab the simple recipe below and relieve those dry, chapped hands this season!
You’ll need: 2 tablespoons beeswax, 1/4 cup shea butter, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 2 tablespoons olive oil, container(s) & a few drops of your fave essential oil.
Grab a pot + a heat safe bowl that fits into the pot. Boil a couple of cups of water in the pot, turn down the heat and pop the bowl into the pot to create a simple but effective double boiler.
Pop everything into the bowl and melt together.
(for a quicker make simply put everything into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 – 2 minutes or until all of the ingredients have melted together)
Carefully pour the mixture into a container.
Add a few drops of essential oil if desired.
Set in a cool place and allow to set completely.
Scoop out a small amount – a little goes a long way!
Rub into your hands.
Enjoy your soft, smooth and soothed skin!
