Here's another variation to the luscious hand cream recipe. In this one I substituted some of the beeswax for shea butter and some of the grapeseed oil for olive oil.
Luscious Hand Cream with Shea Butter
1/2 cup grapeseed oil
1/2 cup olive oil
1 1/2 ounces beeswax
1/2 ounce shea butter (unrefined)
1 cup distilled water
3-4 drops vitamin E oil
Directions: Add beeswax and shea to oils and heat until wax is melted and oil is warm. Heat water in a separate container until about the same temperature as the oil/wax mix. Place oil/wax in blender turn on low. In a thin stream add water slowly until it is completely mixed into the oil. Add essential oils of your choice until your desired scent is reached. Pour into containers. Enjoy!!!
This option seems to be a little greasier than the first, but it once absorbs into your skin it feels wonderful. We used a combination of grapefruit and patchouli essential oils yummmmm.
