Simple Homemade Hand Moisturizer

Today I am sharing how I make a simple homemade hand moisturizer.  You will only need 5 ingredients to make this simple hand cream.

This post is in collaboration with two of my blogging friends Laura from Our Oily House, and Kristin from Life More Abundant.  You can find some great homemade recipes on their Blogs and YouTube channels.  (Find their recipe links at the end of this post.)

This is the perfect hand cream for anyone who wants smooth soft hands.  With two young kids I find myself washing my hands a lot!  Water, soap and the repetitive washing can be super drying to our skin.  At the end of the day I like to slather some of this moisturizer on the backs of my hands and go to bed, knowing it can soak in all night long.

The good thing about making my own moisturizer is I know exactly what is in this balm.  There won’t be any hidden ingredients!

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Melt the Jojoba oil, the Shea butter, and the Beeswax pellets together.  Using a double boiler to melt the first 3 ingredients.  Stir as you are melting everything together.

In a separate bowl or cup mix the 2 different types of essential oils together and set aside.

Allow the melted mixture 5 to 10 minutes to cool down before adding the essential oils.  Once everything is mixed together pour your mixture into a jar (or whatever you decide to store it in).

I am using a short glass jar with a good sealing lid.  Once your moisturizer has hardened it will be ready to use.  Store in a cool place.  If you are in a warm climate I would suggest storing this in the refrigerator.

I picked Jasmine and Lavender oils because I love the aroma.  The smell of jasmine can help with sleep which is another reason to use this hand cream right before bed.  The Lavender oil is good at nourishing the skin because of its high antioxidant content.  Feel free to change the oils if you like something else.  I just love the smell of flowers, but I know that isn’t for everyone.
