Homemade…Natural…Coconut Oil Hand Cream

OK, so here it is!! I waited until lunch time when Eli was asleep and I had to make it!

Now, before I show you the picture of the finished cream, please keep in mind I had no idea how much this was going to make to used a much to large a jar to store it in!

To make this amazing Coconut Oil Hand Cream you will need:

Put the 2 oils and the beeswax into the double boiler. Heat gently, stirring every now and again.

The coconut oil will melt quickly but the beeswax takes a little while longer. (The almond oil is already liquid).

Once the 3 ingredients are melted they will be a lovely yellow colour (if you used natural beeswax), now you can add the essential oils. Give it a good stir, take from the heat and pour into your chosen jar. Leave to cool completely before closing the lip of it will get condensation inside the jar.

Now you can play around with the consistency of the cream by adjusting the amount of beeswax…more makes a firmer cream and less makes a looser cream.

It is a really nice hand cream, here’s hoping I might have nice hands over winter now…not all cracked and dry like normal!

I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did.
