This hard lotion is made of beeswax, shea butter, a few drops of essential oil, and fractionated coconut oil - which is clear, stays liquid at room temperature, and is almost odorless, unlike cold-pressed coconut oil. (If you don’t mind the smell of coconut, regular coconut oil is fine to use.)
Buy beeswax pastilles or pellets, which are far easier to melt!
The cold, dry air of winter can wreak havoc on your hands. Banish painfully chapped and cracked skin with this DIY “Hard Lotion”. Made of a handful of all-natural ingredients, this solid balm deeply nourishes dry skin, creating a waterproof (but non-greasy!) barrier that protects skin from the elements and keeps hands silky smooth all winter.
Allow the hard lotion to cool. It will solidify as it cools.
