DIY Hand Cream using Essential Oils

jars with yellow hand cream., dried lavender, essential oil bottles

With all the hand washing and hand sanitizing, my hands needed deep relief and this is the hand cream that works!




  1. Using a double boiler or a heat-proof glass bowl over a pan filled with about an inch of boiling water, melt the shea butter, beeswax pellets and almond oil.
  2. Once all solds have become liquid, remove from heat and allow to cool for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the essential oils and stir to combine.
  4. Pour into jars and allow to become solid. It takes only a few minutes or you can put it into the refrigerator.


Will keep for up to 2 weeks stored in the refrigerator.
