Shea & Olive Hand Cream

Posted on


This is a simple-to-make hand cream that dry hands will love. Shea butter and olive oil are rich in nutrients, and prevent the skin from drying out. Sandalwood essential oil has been used in hand oils and creams since ancient times, and soothes dry, cracked skin.

You will need:

12g shea butter (refined)
30ml olive oil
12g beeswax
10 drops sandalwood essential oil

To make:

Melt the shea butter and beeswax in a double boiler/bain marie. Stir in the olive oil and remove from the heat. Add the sandalwood essential oil. Stir until the cream has set.
