    Cookgirl's Note:

    Recipe found on "(Inspired by the Coconut Oil Hand Cream recipe in How to Make Your Own Organic Cosmetics by Gill Farrer-Halls). Great for extra dry skin. Nice to rub on after washing dishes or digging in the yard." You can use other essential oil scents of your choice: rose geranium, orange, ylang ylang, jasmine, vetiver, etc. I tried rose geranium and added only five drops of it. The original recipe specified fifteen drops of *each* essential oil. That had to be a typo. Try this on your cuticles or feet! Ahhhh!

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 73.94 ml coconut oil
    • 22.18 ml cold pressed sweet almond oil (I used Aura Cacia brand) or 22.18 ml jojoba oil
    • 14.79-29.58 ml grated beeswax (less for softer cream, more for firmer cream)
    • 0.32 ml lemon essential oils (or other essential oil of your choosing)
    • 0.32 ml lavender oil (")


    1. 1
      Fill the bottom of a double boiler with water and bring to the boil. In the top, combine the coconut oil, almond oil and beeswax. Allow to melt and stir to combine.
    2. 2
      Remove pot from the burner and stir in the essential oils.
    3. 3
      Pour into a heat proof container and allow to cool completely before closing.
    4. 4
      My notes: Once the mixture cooled, I placed the container of hand cream in the fridge to become firmer. *Please* note the hand cream will melt if exposed to heat. I put a small amount in a sample container, placed it in my purse and an hour later the cream was liquified. It solidified again at room temperature. Why did this surprise me? ;).
    5. 5
      Makes approximately 3 1/2 ounces.
