This homemade hand cream, face cream, body cream recipe is the best I have ever found! I love to make it and experiment with it. For those of my readers in the Southern Hemisphere where it is winter, it is really great for chapped winter skin and if you want a lighter, thinner cream if it is summer where you are (like me!) try some different oils.
Take equal parts Coconut Oil, Olive Oil and Cocoa Butter. (1/3 cup of each is a good measurement.) Mix all together. (You may have to melt the cocoa butter to get it out of its container!) Put in clean tins or glass jars. Refrigerate to harden.
Variations or Add Ins:
Oils – Try wheat germ oil, apricot seed oil, or sweet almond oil.
If you don’t want to use cocoa butter, try melted beeswax.
Essential oils – Lavender oil, calendula oil, lemon and orange.
Experiment and have fun!
