Jami of the Happy Housewife shares her recipe for homemade Lavender Hand Cream. She’s a gardener and finds that gardening makes her hands and cuticles dry. She decided to make her own hand cream in order to use natural ingredients and to get a consistent cream that would work on her hands and also on dry elbows and heels. This cream would also work well during cold months.
The simple recipe uses beeswax and a variety of different oils. Since there’s no water in the recipe, the cream doesn’t separate. Jami also provides tips on how to thin the cream for use in a pump bottle and how to thicken it into more of a salve consistency. You can also substitute lemon oil, orange oil or another floral cent for the lavender.
