Gardening can be rough on hands. Here’s a natural, effective cream to keep those homesteading hands soft. Let me know how you enjoy this gardener’s hand cream.
- 4 ounces shea butter
- 2½ T. jojoba oil
- 1½ tsp. corn starch or arrowroot powder
- 5 drops Chamomile essential oil (Get essential oils at wholesale prices)
- 5 drops Myrrh essential oil
Place shea butter in a mixing bowl. Whip the shea butter until light and fluffy. A stand mixer works best for this recipe but a hand mixer will work as well.
Add remaining ingredients and beat until full mixed. The finished cream will resemble a fluffy buttercream frosting.
Spoon the hand cream into glass jars for storage. When stored in a cool, dry place, the cream will keep for 6 months to a year.
