Hand & Nail Butter

Hand & Nail Butter

This formula is rich, moisturizing and healing for irritated, dry hands and nails, chapped lips, rough knees, elbows and feet. It's particularly effective for the prevention of scar tissue formation (if formulated with carrot seed or rosemary essential oil) when consistently applied to fresh cuts and scrapes.


4 tbsp organic sweet almond oil

2 tbsp organic cacao butter

1 tbsp organic ucuuba butter (instead of lanolin)

1 tbsp wax (more for firmer consistency)

50 drops organic peppermint, carrot seed, rosemary (chemotype verbenon), geranium, lemon or grapefruit essential oil - or any combination)

In a small saucepan over low heat or a double-boiler, warm all the ingredients except the essential oils until just melted. Remove from heat. Mix well. When cooled a bit, add essential oils. Pour into a glass jar. Store in a cool place out of sunlight.


Let sit 12 hours before use...use within a year.
