Homemade Hand Butter

Homemade Hand Butter

A thick creme for dry skin and hard-working hands.

  • 1 ounce bees wax
  • 8 ounces cocoa butter
  • 3 ounces olive oil

In a saucepan over the stove, or in a glass bowl in the microwave, melt these items together in this order:

  1. Melt the bees wax.
  2. Add the cocoa butter, melt and stir together.
  3. Add the olive oil, and stir together.

Don’t overheat the mixture. As long as everything is runny and mixes easily, it’s hot enough.

Whip the mixture while it is cooling, to keep the crystals small. You can use a whisk, or if you have one, a kitchen mixer.

Package your hand butter in clean, dry wide-mouth jars.
