Almond hand cream for smooth hands

Here is a recipe to make your own hand cream at home. This cream is not only cheap but also very effective.

Almond hand cream:


2 tsps lanolin (anhydrous)
1 tbsp beeswax
5 tsp vegetable oil
1 tsp almond oil
2 tbsp water
1 tsp borax
almond essence.


Melt together the oils and wax in one bowl and the water and borax in another. When the borax is completely dissolved, remove both bowls from the heat and stir together by hand after adding the almond essence. Pour in a jar. This sets very quickly into pure white cream which is not at all greasy.
