Astar's lotions & potions: Gardner's hand creme
The Perfect Gardener’s Hand Crème
I have received complaints from several thousand viewers about the condition of the skin on my hands…
To prove that I can be trusted to look after them a little better than I currently do, and as evidence to you all, here is the best hand cream for hard working hands like my own.
It’s fantastic stuff; all you need to do is remember to use it!
Here is the list to make the basic hand cream base:
50g cocoa butter
125ml almond oil
You can also add essential oils, along with aloe vera gel, avocado oil, vitamin E oil etc.
A jar to store cream
Method – using a double boiler or glass bowl over a pot of boiling water:
Melt beeswax, cocoa butter and almond oil.
When melted remove from heat and add glycerin…
Pour into a jar and store away from heat.
