Day 25: Homemade Hand Salve
This is a thick, creamy hand salve. It's a little thick for summer, I usually use this in the winter months.
Recipe for Homemade Hand Salve:
Heat the following in the microwave (heat in batches of 20-30 seconds until melted):
- 4 Capsules Vitamin E
Then I whip the semi-cooled mixture in the kitchen aid mixer until frothy.
Place in container of choice.
- As with all homemade lotions (made without water) there is a shelf life of 3-6 months.
- You might have to warm this salve with your hands before applying.
- I use this as a night cream and on any area that is too dry.
- Be careful not to use too much oil, as it makes the salve oily.
