Using Beeswax – A Natural Hand Cream Recipe

cropped-cropped-banner-home-page3.jpg

Great for gardeners, or when skin needs soothing, a very natural product that is fun to make. It is also a great gift idea. Just two or maybe three ingredients.
One cup of almond oil or olive oil and approx 1/6 cup of hard beeswax, sold at most health food or good craft shops.
I use an old, but clean foil container that is large enough not to cause spills. Heat the oil on a low setting and in a separate smaller foil container melt the beeswax. Once done add beeswax to oil and stir well. Pour into clean glass jars or tins. If you want the hand cream scented add a few drops of essential oil. Lavender and rose are my favourites. Leave to cool, once cool it will harden but will soften with the warmth of your fingers. Enjoy.
