Gardening and general house chores can take a toll on your hands. Even if you wear gloves, they still can become dry and in need of some love. Such is the case for me. My hands are always working or being washed and they get very dry. I recently started learning about the health benefits of Essential Oils. While I am no expert in the million uses of Essential oils, I do know that they are great for making all-natural beauty products at home.
My Gardener’s Orange Hand Cream is made with only four – yes four ingredients! I have been using this cream on my hands and feet for the last week and I was really impressed with how effective this is. Pat myself on the back for that one.
My favorite ingredient is the Orange Essential oil. You can use any scent of essential oil that you like. I just love the fresh orange smell.
Gardener’s Orange Hand Cream Ingredients
Add 4 ounces of shea butter to a medium-sized mixing bowl. If you don’t own a scale, a tightly packed 1/2 measuring cup yields almost the same amount. Using a stand mixer, Whip the shea butter until light and fluffy.
Add the oil and corn starch then beat again until fully incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, then add 10 drops of orange essential oil.
Beat the mixture for a final time. The finished cream will resemble a fluffy buttercream frosting.
Spoon the hand cream into two four-ounce mason glass jars. Store in a cool, dry place. The cream will keep for 6 months to a year.
You can even print out these Gardener’s Orange Hand Cream Labels to attach to the lid of your jars. They make great gifts for friends and family too!
This Gardener’s Orange Hand Cream is the perfect cure for dry hands and feet. Make some of your own today and say goodbye to dry hands and feet.
