I had a look through the winter section of "60 second Secrets to a happy, healthy, more relaxed you" by Julie Maree Wood last night. I found what looks like an easy recipe for hand cream "to get rid of that winter crocodile skin".
Recipe from the book is:
Place an egg yolk and 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice into the blender and whiz.
Slowly add 1/3 cup of vegetable or almond oil, 1/4 cup sunflower oil and 5 drops of your favourite essential oil.
Once it is thick and creamy, place it in a glass jar and keep it in the fridge.
Rub it on your hands whenever you think of it.
I used a pre-mixed blend of Rosemary, Peppermint and Lemon pure essential oils.
It didn't take long to whiz up but not sure it went as thick and creamy as I expected - maybe my egg yolk was too small....
I had the perfect little glass decanter in the cupboard - I used to use a lot of essential oils and was always mixing a blend for "something". I decided to put some on my feet as well as my hands as they need just as much help.
Now it's onto some edible whizzing - red velvet cupcakes here I come.
