Instructions for making your Winter Weather Hand Cream:
Making your own products is one of the most fun of the going green tips! You know exactly what is in your product this way and you can stay away from nasty chemicals that may be unhealthy for you and the environment.
Grab your ingredients and supplies and head to the kitchen counter. Start with your coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin E oil. Measure 2 TBSP of your coconut oil and 2 TBSP of your shea butter and add them to your bowl. Next, add 1 tsp of vitamin E oil. Now, you can either whip this with a fork or you can grab a hand mixer and mix the oils that way. Either way, you want the oils to be light and fluffy. This will take a few minutes to achieve is best done with a hand mixer if you have one.
Once that is mixed well, you will add your essential oils in. Add 3-4 drops of each essential oil and fold into your whipped mixture.
Once everything is mixed together, transfer your homemade hand cream to a small jar with a lid. To use, scoop out a small amount and rub into hands well. For best results: use before going to bed so that the oils have a good amount of time to soak into hands.
