Tina’s Lanolin Butter
|Do you know anyone that has rough and chapped hands or feet? Every winter, I can guarantee if I don’t take care of my hands, they will become so rough that I’m more likely to have my hands catch on jackets and that always HURTS! I love this formulation as a bedtime ritual for healing my hands. I simply rub the butter over my hands, then cover my hands with cotton gloves (or socks) and sleep. It is amazing how much softer my hands feel the next morning. This method also works on feet!

Recipe: (Makes 8 fl oz)
Weigh all ingredients except the essential oils into the microwave safe container. Microwave using short bursts of time. Stir after each burst to help melt the Lanolin without making the temperatures too hot. It took my batch a total of 2 minutes in the microwave with stirring every 45 seconds or so. The glycerin will become hot quickly and since it settles to the bottom of your container, the bottom will not be a place to hold until all ingredients have been mixed together thoroughly. Add the essential oils and stir until the mixture has cooled sufficiently to pour into your desired containers.
