When hardworking hands need a little extra nourishment, this hand salve is a must-have!
This salve is perfect for hard-working hands because it’s pretty hard-working itself. It smells sharp and fresh, with heavy hints of pine.
Put a glass or Pyrex measuring cup into a pot that’s about 1/4 full of simmering water. The water will heat the measuring cup from the outside.
Melt the beeswax and jojoba oil together in the Pyrex.
Add the tamanu oil and melt. When the blend is fully melted, remove it from heat.
Add the essential oils and stir gently. You can use a glass stirring rod or the handle of a stainless steel spoon.
Pour the melted salve into your PET jars or aluminum tins.
It won’t take long for the salve to fully solidify. And keep in mind that it will continue to firm up over the next 24 hours.
This blend was created at a 2% dilution. If asthmatic, please use caution. We recommend a small patch test to ensure there is no skin sensitivity.
Kid safety: Safe for kids 10 and over.
The ingredient with the shortest shelf life becomes the shelf life of the entire blend.
