So… my hands have been getting rather dry lately… the skin has been peeling & rolling up, cracking around my cuticles & finger tips… just getting those regular old man hands as I like to call’em. hehe. Usually when this sort of thing starts happening to my body I think, “there’s gotta be some kinda DIY or home remedy I can try to solve this!”

Guess what?? There is! Jill, from The Prairie Homestead, gives the following recipe for a DIY Gardener’s Hand Butter:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Cup Shea Butter
  • 1/8 Cup Sweet Almond Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Beeswax
  • 10 Drops Myrrh Essential Oil
  • 10 Drops Cedarwood Essential Oil

I’ll tell you what, this stuff sounds great! As we speak, I’m trying to get these ingredients locally & I’ll let you kow how this butter junk works after I try it!!

P.S. Coconut Oil is always little Ms. Faithful when you need a handy dandy moisturizer… Until Tomorrow…

-XOXO,

Myra’s
