Benefits: Shea butter and olive oil are both ultra-hydrating and full of skin nourishing vitamins, and beeswax helps to lock in moisture and protect your skin.
Chamomile essential oil helps to soothe skin, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s great for dry, chapped skin, and eczema.
The calendula oil is optional, but it’s healing and a great addition if you’re prone to chapped or very dry hands. You can buy this oil or make your own.
Vitamin E is also optional, but it’s full of antioxidants, making it great for nourishing your hands and keeping your skin looking young.
Tips and Tricks: For a deep moisturizing treatment, apply cream to hands or feet before going to bed, and then put on gloves or socks. This will help the cream to really sink in.
Level of Difficulty: Medium
